wikiHow To Cure Your Crippling Addiction to goopWe’ve all had moments of weakness, where we can’t help but fall in love with goop’s voice. It’s a natural part of life, and only shows that you are human. However, some people may not want to be addicted to the shivering quality of goop’s voice, so here are a few steps you can follow to break free.
Method 1: Realize there’s nothing wrong with your addiction
Step 1: It’s okay to love listening to goop’s voice. It’s really fine. Just make sure you limit your activities to just listening.
Step 2: Consider why you want to stop being addicted. Are your parents making you stop? Would they rather you take up their boring family tradition of knitting a yarn laser beam every night next to the fireplace? Explain to them that you can knit while listening to podcast.
Method 2: Stop listening to goop
Step 1: Try to find an episode that goop is in, but where goop isn’t actively participating or being funny. It’s Extra Credit after all, so there’s bound to be at least a dozen episodes where that’s bound to be the case.
Step 2: Move on to episodes where goop is not listed in the credits. It’ll feel like you’re about to hear goop’s voice at any moment, and the anticipation might put you in a infant state of mind, but the best way out is through.
Step 3: It’s okay to relapse. You may find yourself missing that shivering voice, and those drunken tones of voice. If you find this process too hard, just yearly put on an episode in which goop is in, and take a few days before you try again.
Step 4: Listen to voice repeatedly. Sometimes the best way to stop smoking is to smoke a whole carton in one sitting, to the point where you grow sick of it. In that same vein, find a few of goop’s episodes, cut out all the other voices and the music, and put the results on loop. Make sure to listen carefully to how goop occasionally mispronounces a word or flubs a really easy joke setup. Eventually you may find you will grow tired of listening!
