Re: ADHD and Internet Browsing Habits

Coincidentally I found this thread while burning way to much time online at work. It's way to easy for me to get constantly distracted online. I was hoping that medication would help me overcome my internet abuse (my word), but alas now I just focus harder on particular sites.

Best thing to do is set up your schedule of work items ahead of time, and don't open email or your browser for the first two hours of work. That way you tend to get into your tasks faster. Social networking sites can be murder - so even if your browser is open, close your Twitter and Facebook pages. Instant messaging too - way too easily to be distracted by these.

Unfortunately this requires more strength of will, and daily discipline. It's an uphill battle, but there are a lot of little things you can do you keep on track.
