Keep yourself busy! Keep yourself busy on the things you love doing the most, such as reading or watching movies and keep your mobile away from you for a while
I find something I love and throw myself into it in order to distract me from him and pass my time reading and living better.
There's nothing wrong with texting him just don't over do it ..try to keep yourself busy with something you love
delete the number snd block on all social media sites, it works for many people
Literally, when I was in that situation, I had to keep my phone across the room from myself every time I sat down. It was difficult, but necessary. It was the only way to stop myself from texting that special someone every time they crossed my mind.
Think about other things, try to find interest in other things, such as a hobby, do something to keep your mind off of him
text other friends or if you're strong enough, put your phone down and do something else. don't even look at it or pick it up.
I would occupy myself and give myself a break from the phone.If I don't remember his number,I will delete and block him,so that I am not tempted to chat first.I may even get a new phone number.
One of the best ways to stop yourself from texting him is to delete his number, remove him from facebook, remove him from whatever social media you are connected to him with. The first step to not talk to him is to remove him completely until you are completely over him. When you are ready, you can decide what you want to do from there. But the best way to keep from texting him is to delete his number and him from your life. I wish anyone who is dealing with this the best of luck. I know how hard it can be but I also know that you are strong enough to get over this, even if you don't think that you are.
think about something that makes you happy besides him and think about that. don't give the urge to think about him get him out of your mind and distract yourself.
Block him, as easy as that. You have to ignore him. Do something fun to get distracted and to forget about him for awhile. You wont regret it. I promise. (: With my previous ex-boyfriend I wish I have of stopped talking and texting him. Wasted so many hours waiting for his replies. It's not worth it.
Delete his number from your phone. If you know his number by heart, text someone else and talk to them about it.
Delete his number. Keep yourself from him popping into your mind. Actively avoid the thought of him. Give it time.
You should stop yourself from texting him by filling your time doing other things rather than focusing on texting him. It might be hard to resist it, but it will be worth it to focus your time on doing something productive with the time that you have rather than worrying about someone
Just don't think about him and text someone else. Don't even look at his name. Block the number for the time being.
honestly, block his number... i hate to but its what works the most or make yourself busy or never bring your phone with you anywhere
Try going out with friends more now and never stay alone, just be busy with anything, you will eventually stop caring to text him anymore.
Try to do something to get your mind off of him, such as going for a run, or hanging out with friends. Sometimes turning off your phone and ignoring it helps too.
text other or take batteries off your phone or shut your phone down or go out to place where you dont have wifi or signal
i would block him everywhere and delete him on facebook whatsapp e.t.c . I know it may be hard but you will notice that you will forget him and it will be better every day :)
weigh the positives and negatives and if there are more negatives then do not text him, especially if it will make the situation worse
You should try to find something to do that could shift your focus away from your phone. or maybe you could turn your phone off.
Build up your self control. Delete his number if you have to. I'm sure you remember it by heart but everytime you feel like texting him, recollect why you stopped in the first place.
That is a really hard thing to do. Nearly impossible. But all I can suggest is to try to ignore it. Try putting the phone on silent.
Turn off your phone and leave it in another room! Put on your favourite movie, put on your comfiest clothes, munch on your favourite food and let yourself be happy!
Make new friends . Go out and meet new people . Start texting them instead of texting your ex. Try to move on .
Write down everything you want to say on a piece of paper every time you want to text him. But do not send the papers to him.
Let your self on meeting new people...have most of your time with friends and family! Try keeping your time occupied and it wil work! :)
Distract yourself! Read, hang out with your friends, connect to a 7Cups listener, watch a film. Turn your phone off and give it to someone you trust.
I would definitely find a hobby and distract myself as much as possible or even talking to someone, dancing around the room, playing music so loud that you cant even hear yourself singing!!
