Writer's Block: Out, Out Damn Spot!

Have you ever been passionate about something to the point of an obsession? If so, how did it impact the rest of your life? Did you ever (or would you want to) break free?

Hell yeah, and what I doing here is it. It may not be an obsession as much as a compulsion, but I spend way too much time online. Like from the moment I get up until I go to bed, including time at work. It impacts my life in that so many other things don't get done. I only focus on the off-line things that require immediate attention. Everything else just goes undone.

I want to break free, but I have a long list in my head of things I want to accomplish online, like writing specific stories. I wonder if I should ever complete the list if I would be able then to walk away. I don't know. I only know I need to get out more.
