Hope this view doesn't offend anyone, but i have always thought, Jerusalem should be God's City where all can go to Pray in their own way, Imagine how we could all then listen to how God speaks in many ways, a haven free of politic's, well thats my politics anyway,
I would love to see The ancient Petra one day, hoping next year, if things go well,
I think when you take up something like Guitar, it at first always seems to be a big task, but as the old saying goes, practice makes perfect, 9 Years of music study and that still goes round in my head,
I have a tendency to get addicted to stuff like that, so i try very hard to keep myself away from it, even the TV, i don't own one, because i feel it is part of the problem, we like not to admit it but TV is just as much an addiction, and i saw that and got rid of it, and felt a huge difference in my life, i read, write, play my guitar or piano, or i look into Health stuff on the internet, which before i just couldn't be bothered.
I think the worst of this will disappear reasonably quick, but you have to remove the things also that are a close relation to your addiction, turn your time into something positive and train your mind to enjoy that more, not always easy, but in time it will come, this is why i suggested the creative, saisfying this part of your brain, will satisfy you as a whole, make something like this an addiction if you have to, but it is a positive one, which wont upset the balance of your natural self
I found especially with Games, that there seemed to be a visual residual, like it was playing in my mind well after i put the game away, the effect is a form of brainwashing, and for me a good reason why i dispise the media, because that is exactly what they are doing
Keep in touch Akram, i think you have a good mind, and one that you can definitely make use of in a positive way, take care
