51. Self Control.

I don't mean that in a snide way. If your membership payment is on some kind of reoccurrence, put a stop to it. Then simply don't log onto du. It works in multiple ways. You get what you want, and if you change thoughts in the future, your profile is still here waiting for you. Go in with the mindset you are taking a break. If that break turns into an overall positive in your life, make it permanent. Millions of things you could be doing other than this. Determine if this is what you want to use your free time on over those other options. Best wishes to you.
