Hi.
I need some help.
I'm a true WI addict and there's a problem!
I feel that I'm on the computer too much!
So I don't know if I should quit WI!
I want to do other things but WI is so much fun!
What would you do?

Limit your time on WI. So spend 45 mintes on WI every day and 45 minutes on webbies daily.the rest of the day you can enjoy other thing like games,T.V,ect.

Hope this helps!

I can identify - I spend way to much time on the computer! Try giving yourself a time limit, and keep it. Set a timer, and when it goes off, go do something else. Or else "reward" yourself with computer time when you have accomplished other things you need to do, such as homework, chores, exercise, etc. and don't go on the computer until you have met your other goals. Hmm, I think I should take my own advice...

You DO realize that you are asking the people who are doing the same thing
you are doing to help you decide how to put limits on what you are doing...

LOL! I don't know if there is a cure....

LOL! I was kind of just thinking the same thing...I would say to stay on LONGER!! (Just kidding)

It has become a problem with me as well. I am on the computer WAYYY too much, but I love it here on WI!

Maybe we should all enroll in WI meetings (like AA)....maybe someone should suggest it to the admins and we could hold the meetings here on WI....LOL. Oh wait! I guess that would ruin the whole thing, lol!!!

On the serious side, maybe you should take advice from some of the other WI members. Make a time limit for yourself. Or only allow yourself to go on the computer after you have accomplished something. I think that all of those are GREAT ideas. Maybe thats what I need to do...

Good luck!!

Yes, someone please start WI meetings before some of us end up in D I V O R C E court. Will you look at the time, 3:30 a.m., and I was thinking of giving this poster advise. Ha, giving advise to someone needing help not being on the computer so much; everyone for themselves, I guess.
Seriously, I've been thinking I need to budget computer time as its taken over my life A couple of hours a day is plenty although I bet I'll have withdrawals.
Good luck to everyone.......

manateelover14,

I've been known to say it this way...

Hi, my name is Jenn, and I'm a Kinzaholic. For you maybe a WIaholic.

I've found that I measure my involvement this way: is my time on the computer getting in the way of my job time or family time or other time that is important?

I also try to keep tabs on how much time I'm doing it... which it sounds like you've done.

Maybe you could call a certain time of the day your WI time... from say, 1-2 pm. Maybe if you set aside that time everyday, you would know when your time was coming, but stay focused on other stuff.

I like to get stuff from the Asian Curio shop, so I usually schedule my time around when the Asian rare is coming. Though I allow myself more time on my days off. Hope this helps.

Peace,

Jenn
