Hi everyone! I found out about NoSurf via Reddit; once I learned more about this group and what it does, I realized it was time to cut down on my surfing habits.
This is kind of hard for me because I work at home as a writer. However, I realize that not all of my time is spent in the best way possible, and there are steps I can take to end my internet addiction. I tried for a few days just avoiding the usual suspect sites, but I found that wasn’t working. I thought maybe if I got serious and came here to journal and talk, it might help.
With that said, my goal is not to get offline completely (since I work and study online). Rather, I want to put an end to mindless browsing. It’s okay to go online and find a quick piece of info I was looking for, or spend 10 minutes to search for a rainy day activity for my daughter to do; it’s not okay to browse Pinterest for three hours at a crack. It’s okay to play my favorite game on my smartphone for 45 minutes a night. It’s not okay to spend an hour on Youtube mindlessly clicking on videos I didn’t come online to watch in the first place.
I hope that makes sense.
I’m happy to be here and looking forward to connecting with all of you!
