I’ve experimented with this before and failed – mental detox. From all kinds of distractions. Especially online.
There is only one conclusion, like there is for alcoholics: Either I am abstinent or I am not.
I can’t control it otherwise.
So when home I don’t use the Internet, except in emergencies.
Not at all.
Instead I draw, when I have a break.
My soul wanted this for a long time.
But there were many excuses.
One of them: You are too puritan if you decide to be absolutely abstinent in the age of the Internet, even if just while home.
Puritan is a weird word.
But the question is what I am if I actually get to draw a lot of valuable and joyful and significant stuff again before I die?
If that is a puritan then that is what I am.
I like the word in that case.
