Pass worded myself out of the computer. This is to free up wasted time on family things project, bible time, as well as putting the curb on temptations that the devil has been having a little too much luck with. My computer time boils down to at work only, So I'll only be online at work and during break. Wish me luck.

I wish you all the best first of all and may you get your desired goal, but let me understand this correctly.
You locked yourself out of your computer because you don’t have a strong enough will to not touch your computer?
This is one way of doing it and that great but your determination ultimately should come from inside so you’re not a prisoner of a habit.

All the best to you.

It's a lent thingy.
You are supposed to give up something for Lent. Go without....the whole "deny yourself " thingy.
It can be money or sweets or meat or whatever....

part of the lockout thing was to enforce my honesty so the rest of the family wont claim I'm faking it.
