I live in Smyrna, Georgia, very close to Atlanta, Georgia where I have a secretarial business. Two weeks ago I got rid of my TV (and cable hookup) for good. I've had the cable turned off and on since I've lived in this condo (since September 2006) at least 6 times. I think I can handle TV and cable ...

Thanks for the encouragement, Terry! I had to get the TV physically out of my condo. Just seeing it or knowing it was in the closet was too much temptation. I returned a call to a friend last night and just wanted to find out how her "Wild Edibles" meeting went. She said she was watching something a...

Guest, I, too, can relate to you. My mother died at age 69 of Emphysema 8 months after my father fell in their driveway and died. On the weekends, when I relieved the lady we hired to stay with my mother 24 hours a day during the week, the TV was on the minute my mother got up in the morning until s...

This wouldn't work for me. I can't have a television in the same house with me. I'll just have a weak moment and go get a TV aerial so I can watch the local shows. I've terminated my cable, thrown all the cable wiring away, and totally banished the television from my condo. But now there is the prob...

I'm glad to be back. By the way, have you heard any word of Marguerite? She always posted on the TVturnoff.org (that doesn't have a message board anymore). I think there was another person named Jeff who was a long-time member. Marguerite always had deep things to say. She plays guitar and was going...

Boeina . . . I went to your web page and saw a slender section about why it's good to give up TV (which was very helpful). Other than this slender section, is there anything else about TV on your website? I couldn't find anything. All the testimonials were in some other language and when I clicked o...

I registered after I posted about my first day TV free and about having XM radio. But tonight at 9:00 p.m. I watched Larry King interview Dr. Kervorkian(sp?) (Dr. Death). It will be my last TV show. At 10:00 p.m. I threw away my cables to connect to my cable TV and called the cable company at 10:30 ...
