I’m keeping up with this as I have found that if I sit at the computer for too long, I get horrid motion sickness symptoms, dizziness and nausea. Also sitting slouched on the couch with the laptop on my knee (like I am right now) does NOTHING for my posture or my joints! 4 months ago

How I did it: It really started while I was away on vacation for two weeks with really bad internet. This acted like a detox. Also the internet at home has not really worked that well since I came back from holida, one and a half week ago.
I have had some problems with signing in to my broadband bill, but it’s actually made me wonder if it’s worth the bother any way. I don’t DO anything constructive on the net REALLY, apart from my Folksy shop. I am going to see if I can limit my usage to 1-2 hours a day, or perhaps 6 hours per week until the end of the month, starting tomorrow. We shall see how this goes. Plus I can always go to the library and look things up there. 5 months ago
How I did it: Willpower's great and all, but the one thing that really made a difference for me was uninstalling all browsers but Firefox, and then installing LeechBlock to create a barrier to mindlessly clicking on my timewasting sites when I want to be working. I still waste some time, but not nearly as much, and it's easier to recover since I've eliminated the ability to visit my "stickiest" sites. Read how I did it… 6 months ago
I’ve worked out what I use the internet FOR, and I am going to make a point of coming on to DO something when I am here, and set time limits for when I want to just do a bit of browsing etc. 6 months ago
