I don't think anger is a root cause. Usually something else triggered the anger... if you could identify that it may help. I don't need to know the answer.
What are you talking about? I used movies to help relax me from being angry all the time, and for awhile it did relax me but then it stopped working.
Anger is not the cause of my addiction to DVDs.
I don't do things like that. I tried it once, didn't take.
That's the way I see it, too. I condensed it to one specific thing.
I tried the "buy more, don't buy more 'til you watch them all" and it worked, for about 6 months than it didn't. Example: I still try that approach. I bought 2 50 film collections for $20 (collectively), but it only took me about 3-4 months to watch them all, and in that time period I still bought about 30 movies (costing about $15 total). I've gone to the store and not purchased movies, I even try to go to stores that wouldn't sell them but they all seem to sell them now, from convenient store to pharmacy.
Right now, I technically have enough to buy a DVD but I'm nic'ing
and that seems more important than buying a DVD. Sadly, DVD's will out shine my addiction to nicotine since the latter is more expensive.
