    I'm about to embark on a 30 day experiment......starts tomorrow!

    I spend most of my working days alone (well, the dog is here too) & whilst I'm pretty good at not wasting my time on the internet at the weekend.....I do waste valuable time (mainly on here) during the working week.....

    I reckon by reverting to my old nokia phone & employing a little will power, I could re-claim about 8 hours per week.....& I don't even do facebook, twitter or instagram etc.

    I appreciate the irony of starting a thread about it on a footy forum, but anyone else concerned about wasting a big chunk of life chatting/watching/reading shite on the internet?

    I don't do Twitter or Facebook or any of the others either.

    I too have considered a similar experiment. No Internet, no phones, no TV, for a week. Me, the missus and the daughter.

    I wouls easily last the 7 days
    My daughter wouldn't last 7 minutes.
