I feel like i have no self-control whatsoever. First off i think i have a computer addiction. One day doesn't go by without me going on the computer. And it's not like i go on it for a little while, i always try and set a time like an hour a day but i end up staying on it for longer than that. And it gets in the way of things i should be doing. And, i have no sexual self-control either. I know, im a teenager and my hormones are raging but this is just crazy. I always say im not going to going to watch porn or anything, but i end up doing it. And it bugs me because whenever i go on a porn website i end up watching some gay shit, and i always say i'm not going to watch that anymore, but i end up doing it. And it's other things too. I just need to do something to develop more self-control. What can i do?
How do i learn to develop self-control?
Start out by setting a daily goal. Start small
"I will not go on the computer for more than a half hour today"
Go as far as setting up a timer, and then when it rings, immediately shut down your computer and perhaps leave the room, and do something more productive with your time. I find it's easier to avoid these things if I'm out and about doing things.
Then get bigger, go a day, perhaps 2 without your computer, and just go from there. Limit what you go on. Etc, etc.
Its hard at first. I did a no technology week about 2 months ago, no t.v, no cell phone, no computer, and completely cut myself off. While it was very hard, it felt rewarding in the end.
