I Quit Facebook for a Month. Here’s What Happened.


It was the middle of winter when I decided to quit Facebook. I had just moved to a new city and was feeling isolated and lonely. I was also dealing with some personal issues and I thought that quitting Facebook would help me to focus on more important things.

I was wrong.

Quitting Facebook was one of the most difficult things I have ever done. I felt like I was missing out on what was happening in my friends’ lives and I was constantly wondering what they were up to. I also missed the distraction that Facebook provided.

The first week was the hardest. I felt like I was in withdrawal from a drug. I was anxious and irritable. I had a lot of free time on my hands and I didn’t know what to do with myself.

I tried to fill my time with other activities but nothing could replace Facebook. I read a lot of books and went on long walks but I still felt empty.

Eventually, I started to feel better. I started to appreciate the extra time I had to myself. I was no longer constantly checking my phone to see what was happening on Facebook. I was more present in the moment and I started to connect with people in a deeper way.

I also started to use social media less in general. I stopped checking my phone as much and I started to pay more attention to the world around me.

It’s been a month since I quit Facebook and I don’t regret it. I’m still not sure if I’ll ever go back but for now, I’m enjoying my social media detox.
