    I just spent all day on forums doing nothing and even the forums are moving slow. I just sat down when I got up and could not get moving. Even being online was unproductive. Now its 11pm on a Saturday but I am too tired to go out.

    Turn off your internet service for a month, it will fix you.

    I did what you described yesterday on a different forum, I requested a temporary ban. That's how it usually goes, I'll spend too much time on there then request a ban out of guilt or something later.

    It is possible to live without the internet. Think of it as a drug, a druggie trying to get better would not have his drug of choice lying around the house.

    forums have replaced my social interaction for the last 8 years or so. I can't really connect with people and have a conversation unless its work related, so they fill a void for me.

    What if they created the void or widened it?

    talk to no one, or have e-friends. Those are my options.

    I think I spend too much time online/with technology as well. Except the reasons are reversed. The internet addiction isn't caused by social avoidance, but the social phobia caused me to gravitate towards indirect communication.

    the fact that you feel this way is progress, imo

    yes, i'm on the forums as well

    however, i made it a point to get outside and exercise earlier. I had little desire before I started, but I feel much better now that its over

    We did it for millions of years, up until about 10-15 years ago or so.

    Option 4: pick up some hobbies that require you to be AWAY from a desk/computer.
