      Many here have told their habituation stories have started with 'F**k tinnitus' turning point attitude in their mind. This reminded me of a book I read recently. It's called F**k it and here's it's description. It's a good book and can probably help many of us here. :)

      - - -

      Saying F**k It is like massage for the mind - relaxing you, releasing tension, giving up on things that aren't working. Just starting to say F**k It can transform your life. Saying F**k It feels good - to stop struggling and finally do what you fancy; to ignore what everyone's telling you and go your own way. John C. Parkin argues that saying F**k It is a spiritual act: That it is the perfect western expression of the eastern ideas of letting go, giving up and finding real freedom by realising that things don't matter so much (if at all).This is the Fuck It way.

      If there's a fellow T sufferer in Finland who wants to read this book, I can pass it along. It's a good idea to share this book after reading @Marlene :)

      Worth checking out. I am gonna order it. Thanks @SoundWave. I agree; saying f***it can indeed be a spiritual act. Kind of the cousin to acceptance.

      @Sound Wave I can see that you are going a head with a good attitude!:rockingbanana: The book sounds like something I have to read - for many reasons :). F##"&k it!. You know what - I am from Finland. If you still have it, I could borrow it from you for a while. No idea, how to contact you though :)

      Gee,...I've been saying, "F**k It" for decades; never realizing until now that it was an indication of just how spiritually advanced I am....:D

      @Sound Wave I know that you set the book to me, but because of me moving temporarily from place to another the book is probably stuck at the post office. I am so sorry that you went through all this trouble because of me and because of me being so careless with the notice for the post office, some of my mail I still "on the way". :arghh::eek:
      F##### it! I just want to say that thank you for being so kind! I would really badly need that book, last weekend was not so nice.I need some attitude!
