I am returning to university in January after failing out 3 years ago. I struggled with bouts of deep procrastination, hopelessly addicted to surfing the internet instead of getting my assignments finished. The problem is, my addiction to the internet continues, and I don't want it to impede my future work. I can't prioritize what is important, and I end up spending my entire day on the computer... self-control evidently does not exist. As a student, you need to access the internet in order to get work done, but this also makes it easier to open up social media websites and waste your time. Is it too drastic to think of selling my laptop? And only accessing the computer (either at a library or borrowing my mom's) when I need to get work done? Looking for any help or advice here.
