If you are sincere about understanding this, you should probably examine some of the things you quit listening too and never looked back on.
C2C would be one of those, but how about some other things?
For example, I don't watch or listen to basketball, and I haven't for something like 11 years. The tipping point for me was the organization of the game; I hate the last 30 minutes of commercials and free throws. I watched the Kings-Lakers playoffs in 2002 and felt the entire sport was rigged. So I just left and never came back.
I used to watch some world soccer with some friends, but after I moved and the friends were gone, I never watched or listened to soccer again.
Maybe C2C is like that for all of you, Art was your friend, and when your friend left you just lost all interest.
What are some of the things you have quit listening to, and what was the tipping point?
In my case the transitions are more subtle, and there's no tipping point, interest just gradually fades to nothing.
I practically never listen to a Noory-emceed show any more, but that's an easy choice for me, being in the Eastern time zone. It was a special effort to either stay up or wake up, so it's been very easy to go back to my old sleeping habits. I'm not naturally a night person the way many of my friends are. Neither is the housemate I moved in here with 6 mos. ago. For that reason I wind up not listening to Knapp either, even though in some cases I try.
I can recall long-running TV series I gradually lost interest in. Simpson cartoons would be an obvious example. Married With Children
was another; the interesting episodes became few enough that it stopped being worthwhile watching regularly. A starker example was Smallville
, a show that should've had a limited run anyway; I was engrossed in it when Gough & Millar were writing it at the beginning, but as their role became more distant it became less interesting, although I didn't really stop watching until some time in the 4th season IIRC. I was shocked to learn years later that Smallville
was still running.
Football's an interesting case. I stopped being a fan or watching as a mere spectator some time after I started coaching. It didn't happen right away, took a few years.
In none of these cases was there ever a point I could see as decisive. Usually there's something good to start with, or a taste that waxes over time, & then it becomes habitual, carrying on from momentum as the rewards become sparser.
