If there is already a thread devoted to this, please delete mine. I've noticed in some people's journals (and I've made the realization for myself as well), that a part of the problem some of us might be having has to do with using the internet too much in general--not just for porn. Some of the younger guys here were probably put in front of a computer at an early age the way kids in previous generations were put in front of the tv or radio. I cannot imagine that this is good for one's brain. Frankly, I think it probably sucks. So I'm asking people to post their thoughts about how one is to overcome what could perhaps be called "internet addiction". --I've heard it said before that one should try to limit one's time in front of the computer to specific hours of the day. For example, one might try to impose the rule of not using the internet after 6:00 p.m. or something. --Perhaps it would be beneficial to write out what one typically does when on the internet, and try to eliminate those specific things that have no value. I watch a lot of shit on youtube, for example, and I think I ought to cut it out because it's pretty dumb when you think about it for more than 5 seconds. --I think people should say to themselves, "the more time I spend away from my computer, the better it is for me" (with obvious exceptions, of course). Simply turning off your computer and going for a walk in a park, or going to sit in a cafe, going for a jog--whatever. The point is that spent off of the computer (in general) > time spent on it. Therefore, just get off it for as much as you can. I'd like to hear other people's thoughts too.
