Do you limit the time you spend online

I think I'm beginning to spend more time online than I should. I always say to myself, I'll have to limit the time to say three to four hours to begin with. Then try less and less time each time. Does anybody on here limit themselves to a certain number of hours online each session?

Maybe that's why the servers always busy these days?

I limit myself to at least 15 hours a day now, really cut back

Broadband is a killer.

Fortunately the server limits me.

I've been making myself sleep 4 hours a day, so I'm down to 20 hours online.

Like who else in their right mind would click on here for an hour only to read 'The server is too busy at the moment. Please try again later.' each time? I need my head examined.

And of course, when I went to post this reply it came up again.

Women's tennis sucks.

you've been here forever and i'm already halfway to your total.
i get embarassed but then i think about how many posts i had before September and I'm pretty happy i've cut down a LOT. at one point i had 60 somthing posts per day.
but...that was totally explainable.

anyway, i try to limit my time, but it never works.
i spend maybe 5 hrs a day total.

I started posting properly like a year after I joined. Damn broadband. When you had those 60 posts, weren't you stuck in the middle of nowhere with nothing to do and no car? That's kind of like me, only I have a car . But anyway, we have/had good excuses.

lol...yeah...North Carolina...in the woods...with no drivers license...with two over 50-year-olds. basically, not a damn thing to do but post and talk on the phone.
but this summer i'll have a license AND a car.
lucky me.

anyway, that still doesn't explain the ridiculous amount of time i spend online.

I wish. Keeping up appearances is so time consuming.

To be honest with you Ems I wouldn't be doing much else than watching TV. By the time I finish work (Yes I do work) I can't be bothered doing anything else. I don't have any friends now that I bother with, I live on my own and I don't go out much. So if it's not the Internet it's watching TV.

I think it's a life of loneliness for me then.
