Easily. I could quit anything cold turkey right on the spot. I don't have an addictive personality at all. When my Xbox broke, I simply threw it out. After a couple days, I just forgot it existed. And I played video games more than I went on the web. Still haven't replaced it and its been months.

In before the ban.

No. Too much of a communication and news source for me, though I wish I had the self discipline to do it. Would be an amazing social experiment, and I'm sure I'd find out a lot about myself.

He's a survivalist. Just the basic essentials.

It's hard if the only reason is simply to try restrain yourself to not use it. But given a circumstance where it's inaccessible and/or usage of it is unnecessary, then id say it'll be easy.

Only if I'm on vacation and constantly doing something fun. If I'm still in "real life" and going to work and coming home and all that, no. I need the internet.

I already have all of my pr0n downloaded. Between that and 2K12 I think I could do it. I would probably crave YouTube though.

I went from November 09-June 10 without internet (one of my 2 long absences from here)...It was horrible at first but after a while I just stopped noticing that I didn't even have access to it. I'd go to my parents/friends house and wouldn't even think about using theirs

Yes

I have a lot of games on my PC

I can go outside and play some basketball

I can just talk to my girl.

I'll just watch some shows on my Cable Channel.

I'll just read my law books. (Political Law and Criminal Law are my favorite subjects). I am planning to go back to law school.
