    I've always known about reddit and once in a blue moon i would go there, but i never knew that reddit was that big, i mean theres a sub reddit for everything, i haven't done work in about 2 days.
    Anybody have this issue?
    I read somewhere theres a Mac app where i can block websites for a certain amount of time, might have to do this.

    One word, self-discipline my friend ;)

    Self-discipline is the product of persisted willpower. Whereas willpower is the strength and ability to carryout a certain task, self-discipline is the ability to use it routinely and even automatically (as if through reflex). An analogy for the relationship between the two might be defined as follows: Where willpower is the muscle, self-discipline is the structured thought that controls that muscle. In most cultures, it has been noted that self discipline is the ultimate path towards success.

    Yep, I find myself on it for hours. The best thing I can suggest is to just do the 'quick browse' where I just click the imgur links or video links and not bother going into the comments section, as that just takes you on a wild goose chase through all the subreddits and various relevant links. There are some funny f***ers on that site though.

    It's a procrastinators nightmare.
