Default Could you go a month without the internet?

As you might know I took a year break from ish. I love this bish but it was amazing having all that extra time for work,school, gf,ect. Assuming you only used the computer for school research could you do it?

actually happened 3 months ago storm downed our phone lines, since they prioritized the actual phone lines only it took them over 1 month to restore our service lolz I was so pissed of because I actually felt like I was in the stone age, I realized I actually use the net more now then are cable and TV, I mean no PS3 online no surfing. Only thing that satisfied my net cravings was when I went to work since we can use a computer there.

if i was able to limit it to school research only, then sure. you would need real discipline to limit yourself to doing research only which means you're going to first go to the library and work with tangible publishings first and only use the internet as a last resource. probably block ish and facebook lol.

I could but what would be the point? Unless your spending excess time on the computer, I don't see the problem browsing ISH or playing on addicting games or whatever.

I purposely don't have an internet connection at my mountain house. Getting away for a weekend and just enjoying your surroundings can be therapeutic.

If I could really focus on it, then yes.

It would be pretty active and have a healthier living for sure.

Default Re: Could you go a month without the internet?

i'd like to say yes, but if i have access to a computer, i'll eventually give into temptation and use it... even just for leisure. i do require use of it for various aspects of my life, but even ignoring those internet necessities, i'm not sure i could.

it's a major source of my own personal self-loathing that i'm as hooked to the wired world as i am. i'd like to abandon technology altogether and take to the hills for a year. maybe soon...
