wikiHow To Cure Your Crippling Addiction to Vinny PossumWe’ve all had moments of weakness, where we can’t help but fall in love with Vinny Possum’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 misunderstood quality of Vinny Possum’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 Vinny Possum’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 legend every night next to the fireplace? Explain to them that you can knit while listening to podcast.
Method 2: Stop listening to Vinny Possum
Step 1: Try to find an episode that Vinny Possum is in, but where Vinny Possum 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 Vinny Possum is not listed in the credits. It’ll feel like you’re about to hear Vinny Possum’s voice at any moment, and the anticipation might put you in a sticky state of mind, but the best way out is through.
Step 3: It’s okay to relapse. You may find yourself missing that misunderstood voice, and those magical tones of voice. If you find this process too hard, just badly put on an episode in which Vinny Possum 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 Vinny Possum’s episodes, cut out all the other voices and the music, and put the results on loop. Make sure to listen carefully to how Vinny Possum occasionally mispronounces a word or flubs a really easy joke setup. Eventually you may find you will grow tired of listening!
