    I have so much work to do that I want to block TSR and youtube on my laptop for a couple of months as they distract me a lot, and I unfortunately lack the willpower to just stop going on them . Does anyone know how I can do this? I use Google Chrome as my browser.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Just get some willpower ffs. Adding a software fix that you control isn't going to stop you, because you can just override/uninstall it.

    The only real solution, if your willpower is about as strong as an RSJ made of Dairylea, if to get someone else to lock it all down with a password only they know.
