    I started doing something similar last year, but on more of a rolling system. I noticed at the time a large portion of my day was getting eaten by Reddit, I was checking it multiple times per day and not seeing much positive benefit. I can't even remember what it was now, but something I read had upset me (I suspect it was the hivemind stifling conversation, but I really couldn't say now), and decided that I had to stop using something which was causing me so much mental anguish. It took some effort, but a month later I hadn't visited Reddit except on accident a couple of times, mostly clicking through to it before I even consciously thought about what I was doing.

    The end result was a much more tempered use of the site, and one healthier for me. Since then, I've done the same with a few different things, websites and games, mostly. If I find it eating up a large chunk of my life without feeling particularly positive about that, I cut it out for a month.

    My only complaint about this article is that it could make your addiction worse. "If you're addicted to ____ then you should DEFINITELY not do ____ because you will absolutely be addicted to that too! Oh and for that matter, definitely don't do ____, it's just too amazing to handle."

    Thanks for this. It's food for thought, and made me realise just how much I am actually addicted to social networking. It makes so much sense to take time out. certainly from FB...but then there's also Twitter - oh well, so what ? Of course, I rely on popular aggregate sites for news, so ...oh well...and what about my Blog ? Didn't think of that. Then there's Instagram - damn. I should join you in having a break, but I just started here as well , and I need to get more Rep and XP...It's insidious. No wonder my life is an endless timesink.
