Consumer Reports

TV turn-off week | (UPI) -- Soft addictions such as over-eating, compulsive shopping, watching too much TV and surfing the Internet for hours sap time, zap energy, and keep many from a more meaningful life.

According to a recent Harris poll over 90 percent of American's admit they have soft addictions, with more than a third of them saying they watch too much TV.

Judith Wright, a soft addictions expert, asserts that "watching too much TV is actually a cover-up for emptiness or deeper hungers for affection, contact, and meaning."

Wright has teamed up with TV-Turnoff Week 2003 -- April 21-27 -- to encourage millions of children and adults to take a seven-day break from the television and rediscover life.
