I want to come clean about something. It's my general behavioral problem when it comes to using the internet. In some days the only places where I still can use the internet will be in libraries and other public spaces or at friends. I will go there with a plan and time-frame to do certain specific things in the internet (hopefully). So this is not about: what direct measures can I take. But right now I'm still entertaining what I could call my internet addiction and I think it's a good moment to address it and maybe get some advice. Also I'm interested: who else has, on top of a porn addiction, a general internet addiction/problem. Actually I don't feel comfortable to use the word "addiction", because other than porn I don't want to quit it. But I want to get in control much better than before. Here some background: I learned to know the internet and I learned to know HSIP. Then I had a bad year with ups and downs but really in a bad condition. I used the internet very much, besides the social and info thing I was - of course - in porn, in games and in movies. That is all long ago. Today I'm not gaming anymore, I watch few clips rarely a movie, I fight against porn and I limit my internet time. But still... I see some patterns are still there. Often I just can't control my use of internet: I start the computer when I don't want to, I can't stop when I want to stop and I can't decide freely what to do. It's much more subtle then with porn. There are not these urges. In a way, nearly everybody may have this problem, because the internet is designed that way. And I'm not even the guy who clicks on every add, reads every bullshit... Well, sometimes I still DO engage in utter bullshit, I admit. Or often? ... Ok, I think it comes down to this: regardless of what was in the past, today I know my time is limited, I have goals, I have a passion to follow. So first comes the decision: what to do and what not, where to take leisure time or to allow a free flowing mind for new experiences, where to draw a line, make a cut. Then comes the realization, where the question is: can I realize my decision or am I driven by my compulsive behaviors most of the time (which is pretty much the case for me right now) What I just wrote came to my mind while writing, so I realize, talking about the problem is already helping.
