    Wha sup, Man That sucks cock and balls that you lost your job, but i can completely relate...well I may not be on the net all the time but i would say most of the time im around a comp with access to the web, Im on it.....even at work, while were at our desks were not suppose to be web browsing but i figured out what programs they were using to monitor our desktops and disable them everythime i go to work, so i can surf the net when i get bored.....and yes i do to stay up late due to being on, and yes i have slept alot thru my alarms and have been late to work since i started, just a good thing that my manager is a ******* cool *** guy or else my *** woulda been kicked out long ago...the only thing to do is get self control, im workin on mine, just gotta say **** it and hit the sack..its for the best, i suggest you get to workin hard at this ASAP due to it getting worse and worse every day!...im not on the net to much now that i decieded to cut my broadband connection and just use dial up for now. I mean i was ****in playing halo online all the damn time i was home...that ******* game is addicting! I had my own dedi and everything (A WIENERS WORLD ) now that i work alot and im gettin ready for the summer getting my car ready and **** thats what im concentrating on...Work, go to gym, come home, get on net for a little, hit the sack..(weekdays only, Other plans for the weekend, of course )...not gonna lie at times i do get tempted and stay on longer but its reducing...just gotta make that extra effort and you can do it ya kno..focus on other things...well for one you either need to get another job or try to get ur old one back, so focus on other **** around you and not so much ur email everythirty mins, trus me it will be there ...well good luck and remember take the extra step and you will succeed!

    You could always go the hard way that I broke myself of always having to be on, but then I still spend a large amount of time. But anyways After getting hit with a $500 internet bill (back in 1996 when the internet wasnt totally prevalent and some places you had to pay per minute on dial up), knocking my girlfriend up and having no clue what I was going to do for a job I joined the U.S. Army. 8 weeks with no computer access, and then since I had a year long advanced training school where I had computer access but not internet access. After all my training I started getting back into the internet but after sleeping through Morning formation a few times and winding up losing a pay grade and having to pull extra duty. I was finally able to keep my internet usage in check(or at least managed to learn how to wake up to my alarm clock after one hour of sleep). I now no longer miss work but I still wind up sleeping through the odd date here and there.

    It seems that you reconize what you have to do, as with an addiction you will not be able to overcome it unless you truely want to.

    A old friend of mine once told me when i was in a rut that the it only in the hardest times that you truely get to know yourself. And see the good and the bad and what needs to be changed.

    good luck, you have skills, you will find ways to use them that are more constructive and fulfilling. keep your chin up.

    This has to be the gayest thing I ever read. Have you ever sucked dick for Internet access? I didn't think so...Until you get a real addiction, quit your whining. It's a matter of will power, if you don't want to **** up, then you won't. You lack discipline, it's the same w/ any other "disorder" that's out there like addiction to weed, alcoholism, or ADD. If you want to get over it, then just stop doing it.

    I wasn't trying to joke around... I was being serious...

    If there's something important enough to you that you would be willing to drop your addiction (Girls, Job, w/e) that may be able to help you....

    Just focus on thos thing...

    Good luck,

    Rafster

It copied itself to a random location on the drive with a random name so I couldn't track it down. - I eventually figured out a way to take it down.. I made a program that gave itself realtime process priority and with 4 threads all running until they found all gaurdian apps, and the mother program.. - and then simultaneously terminated them all. All so I could use the internet more than 2 hours a day.
    You see, that's sad...So much time wasted on making a program three times and then hacking back through it.
    Unless it's the experience that counts, you could've just gotten this instead:

    It's easy: the light half shows you when it's time for bed.

    I agree with migel628; it does in fact take discipline.

    Also, a computer or even a TV in the bedroom is not such a good idea...
    You miss out on all the action Rafster is talking about.

    Good luck with your job search.

    P.S.
