I have first-hand experience that complete unplug is the way to go. If
you feel you are addicted to something, either you stop or you keep
being addicted, there is no half way thru unfortunately.

Noise is what makes evolution evolutionary. ;-)

Unplugging doesn't mean to never be able to come back. You can taste
wine without being a alcoholic. But if you become one, you don't taste
it anymore.

Whether one could stop being an alcoholic and start tasting wine again,
well, I don't know. :-/
