            oh yes, TV is a weak place. But slowly slowly by tasting higher taste one will be able to detach oneself from TV. So tomorrow is Holy Day, please dedicate whole Your day for the pleasure of the Lord and He will help You.

    another suggestion is to associate Krishna with everything. Try to think of Krishna while doing these addictions and try to somehow change these addictions into loving service of Krishna. Watching sports games is a difficult one, but if you love going on the computer and watching movies, you could try to change that into watching bhajans and kirtans. But as Rahul Prabhu said, increase your devotional service and slowly material things will fade out.

        please try to chant on Tulasi beads and at least on Sundays give Yourself fully to the service of Devotees and to Krishna. And gradually our spiritual desires will not leave free space for our material desires. So it is the only way - to replace one lower thing with other - higher.

        It is called as Bhakti Yoga.

        Your servant, 

        • Thank you for the advice mata ji! Dandavats!
