Digg is like Crack Damn Kevin Rose!

Digg is addictive, I can't not sit there and read the next story and find the next cool site. My Internet addiction was under control until I viewed my first episode of Diggnation. Now I sit at Digg and click from the front page to see what is hot to the digg for story page to see what is the latest site posted, then a quick click on digg spy then its back to my profile . While all this clicking is going on Winamp cycles through the first eight episodes of Diggnation over and over again, I hear Alex and Kevin talk about all of this great beer but mine ran out four days ago. I'm not getting any sleep and I haven't been to work or had a bath in a week. My supply of Mountain Dew is almost gone and even Netflix wants their DVD's back, I'm going to have to get to a store soon, I need bandages for the blisters on my mouse hand.

If anyone could please recommend a program (12 Step or other), I'm ready, I'll do whatever is necessary. Please help be beat this dreadful affliction.
