Model Answer:

Introduction:
Thank you very much for this interesting topic. I'd like to also thank you for allowing me the time to talk about a technology that I stopped using. I will share with you what this technology is, why and when I started using it, when and why I stopped using it and how I feel about my decision.

When and where you got this technology:
I used to be an avid Instagram user, but I have since decided to stop using this social media platform. I first got Instagram around five years ago, during my last year of college. I got this application from the Google Play Store where Android smartphone users can download the application they want.

Why you started using this technology:
At the time, I was looking for a way to connect with friends and share photos of my life. Instagram seemed like the perfect solution, as it offered a user-friendly platform for photo sharing and social networking.

Why you decided to stop using it:
However, over time, my relationship with Instagram began to change. I found myself becoming more and more obsessed with the platform, spending hours scrolling through my feed and checking for new updates. I became fixated on the number of likes and followers I had, and started to compare my life to the carefully curated images of others.

Eventually, I realized that my use of Instagram was having a negative impact on my mental health and well-being. I was spending too much time on the app and becoming increasingly anxious and depressed as a result. I decided to take a break from Instagram, which eventually turned into a permanent decision to stop using the platform altogether.

And explain how you feel about the decision you made:
Although it was difficult to let go of Instagram at first, I ultimately feel that it was the right decision for me. I have more time to focus on other activities and hobbies that bring me joy, and I no longer feel the pressure to constantly compare myself to others. Additionally, I have noticed a positive impact on my mental health, as I am no longer exposed to the constant stream of images and updates that used to trigger my anxiety. I think my decision to stop using Instagram was a difficult one, but ultimately a positive step for my well-being.

And that’s exactly how I succeeded in achieving a goal recently, which I otherwise thought was not possible. Now, calling “riding a car always” - no matter wherever I go and how short the distance is - is a “bad habit” that might actually offend some people, but it certainly felt like one to me. I found out that I was gaining extra pounds in my body, and my fitness was deterioratin
