Step 1. Understanding.
So wewe just understood that wewe don't like this thing anymore? Lets think about it. Do wewe really want to stop? Won't wewe feel bad after it. Actually it is just theorical part of stopping being a shabiki but it is important. wewe don't want to throw all your merchandise out and then cry and shout "I want it all back. I still upendo it." Think twice before doing inayofuata steps.
Step 2. Big trashcan.
It is the most important and a quite symbolic step. wewe take everything off. All the posters, all little shabiki things wewe have around you. Take everything away. It has symbolic meaning. Getting rid of obsession, of being a fan. Then throw everything out. EVERYTHING. Rip all the printouts, old posters. Get rid of all that. wewe are starting a new life. Congratulate yourself.
Step 3. Things that are worth money.
Probably wewe have something like CD's, DVD's, books, T-shirts, cups etc. Things that wewe have paid a money for and they are still worth it. wewe can throw them out of course but better idea is to just sell them. Maybe someone who is a shabiki of a thing wewe are stopping to be a shabiki of will buy them. Things are used so wewe won't probably sell them for the same price wewe bought them but anyway... Maybe your cousin likes them? Give them to him. Also wewe can donate things if wewe want. Poor people will be happy about almost new T-shirts even with wewe ex-idol pic on them.
Step 4. Digital cleaning.
Take your phone, tablet, computer and other devices and futa everything like muziki files, pics. It also may have symbolic meaning and wewe will get a lot of free space in your computers memory. Clean all wewe social networks profiles. Maybe wewe have Facebook banner with your ex-idols pic. Change it! Unfollow it. Unsubscribe channels in youtube. futa thematic boards in pinterest. Stop being a shabiki of klabu in fanpop and other fanclubs.
Step 5. Let the world know it.
Stopped being a shabiki of Justin Bieber but some months later your godmother gives wewe a cup with his pic on it for christmas, thinking that wewe still like him? Don't let it happen. Tell everybody that wewe are stopping being a fan. Write an arcticle in internet like I did. Tell it to your family and friends. Let them know.
Step 6. Start a new life.
Its the best part. wewe can find a new thing to be a shabiki of. wewe can simply enjoy your freedom :) Remember, stopping being a shabiki is good thing and wewe don't have to be ashamed because it oppens wewe to new opportunities, new things to like. Just be happy and proud of yourself about liking what wewe like and disliking what wewe dislike and if somebody says things like "How could wewe stop being his fan?I hate wewe for it. wewe ruined our friendship." Remember that wewe can do whatever wewe want and its your life no matter what others say.
