    Find a corner and read. Read the greats, read the poetry that speaks to you.

    Create art. Listen to music, but not as a background frame, listen to it and only it and do nothing else. Try that. Then create art, go for a walk, read philosophy, research cultures of other continents. Look at the clouds, look in the mirror, into your eyes. Spend time exploring museums, galleries, libraries and photography. Find your own culture. Watch old movies and create scrapbooks. Try and see the world through children's glasses and adopt a curious nature to ideas. Save up your coins, find a special recipe that jumps out, then make an effort to find the specific ingredients and cook it for the family.

    Whatever you do, don't fester your life away and end up regretful.

    I don't know why I care, but please.
    Thanks. Some great ideas. I'll try some of them out. The ones I liked most were the going to a museum, galleries, and libraries. How could I not have thought of that. And I live in London as well.

    I would regret it if we move somewhere out of London where there are no museums and stuff. You just made me realise what sort of opportunities I am leaving out. +rep

    If you have a somewhat social life, then there's nothing to worry about. Why feel bad, you're not hurting anyone.
    Why I feel bad is because I'm just there in my room. Not having any connection with my family. And my mum keeps saying "Comon, is there nothing else in your life than your laptop?" And whenever she says it, I feel bad that I'm just ruining my life and...jus feel bad I can't explain why.

    Maybe because I am not doing what my mum tells me to and she isn't demanding it from me, but rather asking me kindly to sit together with the family and I can't do that simple favour to her, which won't even harm me.

    But on the other hand I'm just so addicted to laptop that I hardly can get off it.

    I don't know how to explain it.

    British Museum - no excuse! That place is full of wonders.

    Also, you know for a couple of days. I dare you to close your laptop and vow to not touch it for two days. And don't be bored, vow to entertain yourself in other ways. Do it!

    Find your liquid and sway in it, lose your way but don't alienate people, that's my problem.

    I don't feel good when doing it, but on the other hand I am soo addicted to it, that I can't live without it. My parents are telling me to not sit all day and only use laptop 24/7.

    I mean, I don't have anything to do except that. Is there any idea what I could do, that is more healthy and makes me more active and all?

    My parents and my brother sit in the living room together and watch tv and all, but I don't like the shows they watch. Actually I don't like to watch tv at all? I am always the one hidden in my room and completely isolated from the world.

    I really feel bad about it. How can I get rid of this habit?
    I could have written that. But I also play PS3 alot, too.
    Been worse since I started self-teaching. My 'mates' have forgotten about me. mehh

    How reliable is this website? I mean, no offence, but the Internet is also full of BS. I don't know whether this is part of it or not.

    I used to do that, then I decided to go out more and find stuff to do, do more work and I don't use my laptop on my lap in bed anymore. I only use it at the desk.

    For a start, take your laptop and sit with your family. Which is win win both ways really, all your family benefits and you still have your laptop nearby and no more isolation!

    Don't worry, I do the exact same thing. However, it's not out of addiction for me. The only place that I can really go and socialise out of school is the park - and sadly I get bullied there. So I decided the only thing i could do was stay in all day. However, a few days ago I found a nice cherry tree to sit under and read, which is really nice. If you like drawing (like me) It's great to inspire you, and if you are a writer (also me) it gives you ideas on what to write. If there are no trees or anything around your area, try and look for a library of some sort. And if there is nothing... Just sit under your
    tree in your back yard! Hope this helps!
