    What exactly is distracting you?

    I'd recommend studying at a place with fewer distractions, taking mini breaks so that you won't lose concentration as fast and also planning on what you will do each day.

    Have you tried using web filters to prevent you going on non educational website (or manage your time on the internet)?

    Do you need to be on the computers at college?

    I don't understand how you really need to seek help from being that easily distracted. Maybe you have a learning difficulty (nothing wrong with it).

    Do you get distracted when you're on the bus, or when travelling; talking to friends or when you're at home?

    Or is this just computers only? If so then I'd recommend you either do your work on paper and open up a book. Or buddy up with someone so they can control the monitor so you won't have any impulses to type in unrelated things to your college work.

    Maybe worth talking to your GP or the college's welfare officer.
