I've definitely been there. I used to use Chrome Nanny but it was a bit too easy to disable the block so it didn't really work for me.

I have definitely cut down on my internet time, mostly by reading a lot more books. I recently realized that well known authors are well known for a reason most of the time, and they have much more interesting things to say than the average blogger or forum poster. Don't get me wrong, I still spend a lot of time on forums but I do feel a little more balanced recently and not so overstimulated by /u/_____'s very-important-out-his-ass-opinion regarding Iraq.
