Are you addicted to the Internet and smartphones? How can one overcome it?

That face. She is going to look like a real wentch in 15 years.

Don't fight it.

Just turn off the computer/smatphone/tablet.

The heavy drinking she does is going to make it even worse, faster.
turns out that getting drunk 4 nights every week is not good for your skin.

meh - go for a walk and leave that shit at home. I know what you're going through though and it's tough. I remember playing outside all the time when I was a kid but I hardly ever go outside now.

I'm looking for ways to get more active but it can't be bullshit like "go for a walk". What do I do after that?

I'm thinking of taking up BJJ. There's a America Top Team gym about 3 miles from my house.

These. Just stop it if you don't like it. Learn to control yourself.

It's hard desu senpai. I need the computer for my homework senpai.

Go cold turkey on 4chan and fill your time with other things/obligations.

get a dumbphone. my smartphone wsa broken for a bit and while it was getting repaired my internet needs dropped reaaaaally low. It's amazing how quickly you stop caring if you can't access it.

Just follow me, kōhai - I'm leaving 4chan for a few hours to read a tech related book.
It might be hard because I'll use google to search for stuff, but I will try to limit my internet browsing to the things I absolutely need in order to understand concepts from the book.

Just don't fill your browser with tabs containing tits and /g/ threads and you will stop seeing the time you spent surfing the series of tubes as wasted.

Get a hobby.

Pick up a camera, turn off your phone and go outside.

If you're using it for homework or something productive then you can't call that an addiction.

You DONT NEED your computer for homework. You NEED TO DO HOMEWORK and use the computer to accomplish this.

Change your mindset to one where you use tools to complete a task, not where you use tasks to justify bringing out a tool. You'll find yourself doing a lot less "busy work"

What sites do you browse?

Looks pretty Hispanic to me.

She'll be pregnant in no time.

/g/, Hackernews, Reddit and Wordreference.

All of them make stressed all the time because of the absurds I force myself to read and all the meaningless debates.

You can overcome it just like any other addiction. You should control the thing you are addicted to, not the other way around. Start by rewarding yoirsepf with it: Done one or two meaningfull activities (homework, house chores)? Good, allow yourself to browse for a certain amount of time (1h of work -> 15min of browsing).
You will notice that the thing you are addicted with becomes fun again. What is important though, is to keep the discipline and not to make the amount of browsing time longer and to fall into the addiction pit again.

>>51405062

pretty much same situation as you, we're probably the last of generation of kids to be without all of that shit. you should go to that BJJ place, also.

>What sites do you browse?

/g/
A single slowish board on SQRT(64)chan
Vidya guild page of a group of faggots I play vidya with
Porn and music (if it counts)

That's it. That's all I do. Between that and vidya I occupy all my free time (8 hours a day, all my weekend unless I decide to go to the brewpub with some buddies), and I skimp on my responsibilities sometimes to fuck around. I masturbate like 4+ times a day if nobody's around and I have nothing better to do.

I maintain an otherwise normal-appearing life. I definitely need some fucking help though.
