Have you ever done a Face Book Detox?

So for a while now I have been off of facebook. I got locked out of my account when I set up a notification that sent me a text if anyone tried to log on from an unfamiliar computer. Then I lost my phone. And my computer had to be replaced. So for like a week I had severe withdraws from FB. Now I'm fine, in fact I seem to have a lot of time to do a lot of things now that I don't spend hours on FB. It has been over a year with out it and I would like to recover my profile. I'm curious to see what my reaction to it will be. So have you ever taken a break, or stopped using facebook?

Like you, I think that a lot of people would be pleasantly surprised that they would have a lot of time in their hands to do other productive stuff if they just un-plugged, or stayed away from facebook for a while. I do have an account, but I don't check my newsfeeds all the time. In fact, I've 'unfriend' a lot of people who I think were just wasting my time.

Yes I have taken a break when on vacation for a week or two and don't take techology with us ever so we just enjoy our trip and visiting people. Also Take breaks to visit people, shop, go to church and interact with family and grand children. I can live with it or without it.
