    I have a strange addiction to one particular site. I used to MB to porn sites almost every single night into the early morning and then wake up drained and tired to go to work the next day. I have fought this addiction down to the point that don't do this every night anymore. No more twice a night MB sessions. I now only fall off the wagon about once a week or once every two weeks. Now I find myself with time and I am spending this time instead of on Porn sites wasting time trolling this one particular anon site. I sometimes start outrageous threads just to get a rise out of people and if that doesn't work I will jump into somebody elses thread and start pigfighting. Sometimes these are political threads and I actually start arguing a political stance a don't even believe just for the sake of the battle. Sometimes it's about the pros and cons of investing in a certain asset. Sometimes the pros and cons of a computer operating system or a certain kind of car. I spend hours wasting my time with this crap and after my online battles I feel wasted almost as though I had been MBing to porn. I can waste hours doing this and when I go out, I can continue my battles on my smartphone. I have internet access everywhere I go. I used to trade off between trolling this site and MB to porn. Now I have cut way back on the porn and the result is that I am actually spending more time on this site instead of doing what I really want to do.

    I have to face the fact that this is simply another addiction I have and now that I have throttled down my porn addiction, I am just replacing it with another one.

    The thing is that I am online so much that when I get offline it almost seems strange. Going to the gym. Working on the car. Doing things off of the internet is almost like I am a stranger in a strange land. The internet is where I live. The real world is someplace I visit from time to time.

    It's time I reverse that. My goal is to stay off of that certain site I waste so much time on. I need to set up some kind of counter apart from my porn counter.

    Any suggestions.

    Damn, I know right? I don't even have a porn issue, it's the internet. I need to go all day tomorrow without it...
