Like many people, I have tried and failed many times to be free of my addiction. Since I became aware that I had a problem about six years ago, my longest sobriety period has been a little over 50 days. That run was pure will-power. Recently, I managed to stay clean for over 30 days (because my I didn't have internet access).

Here's what I'm doing differently this time around:

1. I'm taking time to learn about this addiction every day. Here's an article I received today that opened my eyes. (Interestingly, they talk about seeing repair after 100 days, similar to the 90-day goal popularized here.)

2. My computer has no battery; it runs on an AC adaptor. Yesterday, I krazy-glued the adaptor to a part of my house which has no privacy. That prevents me from taking my computer and hiding with it in a dark corner somewhere.
