    This is destroying my life. So I've got a plan.

    The only thing I *really* need the internet for is to do email. So I'll keep my iphone handy and use that, because I find using it inconvenient enough to discourage myself from surfing on it in general, let alone porn. Just going to go on it to look at email, and when I'm done, I won't be tempted to check out facebook or porn or whatnot. Hopefully.

    Good idea. I kind of did that by blocking fun, news, and social sites on my computer. I have access on my phone, but I'm redirecting myself back to my to-do list and working. Now I need some healthy addictions like praying and working. Thanks.

    I've kept my net use the last few days to iPhone usage and it's worked decently so far. Beats using the computer big time.

    I got ride of my desktop computer 6 months ago. Got the hard drive properly shredded and recycled. I do not regret it at all. If I really need a traditional computer I can go to one of the many libraries in my city.

    I now only use my new and top of the line Android phone for internet access. Email is easy, and even though it is small, though bigger than my prior phone, I find that the visual experience and TV like feel of a computer screen is missing. That is a good thing because it is more easily manageable. Leave the phone in another room and sometimes you will forget to even go on it.

    Having an expensive phone can be a great thing to have and also expensive maintenance. A recent study implies that $5.9 billion has possibly been used on iPhone fixes since the original was released in 2007. The phones are incredibly stylish, but are known to be delicate and somewhat of a fussbudget, also as costly to repair.

    Most days I don't turn my laptop on and just use my cell phone or work computer to do stuff on the internet.

    It helps control idle browsing.

    YES!
    This works big time.
    the computer is faster and more agile which leads to lots of wasted time.
    ALSO,
    the cell phone seems to be formated better for me to actually respond quicker to emails and avoid the extra verbage - somehow!> some would know the tech side well enuff to explain why the cell phone is scaled down!?
