Maybe you should make a timetable, and slowly cut down the amount of time you're on the computer,you could do this over a week or two. And then eventually make it so you can go on at a certain time, for say an hour a day?

heyy iris,
i know how you feel, the internet used to always keep me away from my actual life. maybe you should try blocking the websites that distract you from school work. that way, if you ever want to go onto those sites, your internet wont let you, and you'll have more of an incentive to stay off your computer. also, blocking unnecessary sites will still allow you to work on the internet for school, if needed. i also agree with Charli about the timetable...that could really help manage your time on the internet.

good luck

If you can get up the will to try shutting off your laptop, you can find the will to get out of your home, and make a study space out of some place where the internet is far, far out of reach. Libraries are a great place to consider, or if that fails, try a [relatively] quiet local coffee shop. A lot of people find this quite effective - that's why these spaces exist!

I have the same problem with online games, well it's getting better now, you can message me if you want to work through it together, I hear having a friend helps this sort of thing?
