Nowadays, I use the Internet for every aspect of my studies. I feel like the Internet has a lot more resources for me to use. However, I end up working for 10 minutes only. I spend the rest of my study session repeatedly browsing the same websites. As a result, I end up wasting my time and getting behind on my work. I use an Ethernet cable. At times I have disconnected the Ethernet cable but it never works. I end up playing the "Dinosaur" game (the game on Google Chrome which you can play if there is no Internet connection). How do I stop being distracted and actually get work done?

There's a lot of useful apps that you can download and use to block certain websites for a chosen ammount of hours while you study, this will help you use the internet for the right thing such as research or looking at a module guide.
Here's another way to help you. You're paying a serious ammount of money to study at your chosen uni/college and your future may depend on your chosen study. unfortunately this Dinosaur game doesn't !

Edit the hosts file on your computer. Iirc for each website you want to block, add 127.0.0.1 followed by the website's name plus a new line. Then you won't be able to access the website from any browser. Even better, on chrome it will not display the Dinosaur game.
Since you can't edit the hosts file in the directory it is found, copy it to a directory where you can edit it, then re-paste into the directory where the hosts file is.
