I have some kind of mental illness
I'm a 24 year old guy. I have a very bad habit of wasting my time on internet. I spend around 9 hours on internet. I mindlessly waste time on watching youtube videos, instagram, quora and searching the web.
I feel like I have nothing to watch or search on internet. I compulsively try to think what should I watch/search. I feel unsatisfied with the amount of things I search/watch online.
I will go nowhere if I don't break this habit.
Do you have a job? If not, why not?
Some of the things I look at on the internet are home repair things. I don't make a lot of money, so learning how to do some minor things saves money. Or I can research topics related to my job or hobby.
"I have a very bad habit... I will go nowhere if I don't break this habit"- you can search the internet (if you haven't so far) for how to break habits. For example, healthline. com/ how to break a habit- is an excellent, useful article on the nature of habits and how to break them: starting small, expecting slipups, and slowly, patiently, replacing a negative habit with a positive one.
