Addicted to Online Shopping, Trying to Recover

When you start to daydream about dresses you might buy, or even presents, you realize you may have a problem. I have gone to extremes in shopping online. In an effort to stop my shopping binges and regain control of my life, I have used the following instructions for some of my favorite shopping sites. The reason that it's not a problem for me to do this is that by now, mid-November, I'm almost completely done with my Christmas shopping.

  1. Click Start->Run
  2. Through the Browse, select "All Files" and open C:/Windows/System32/drivers/etc/hosts using Notepad
  3. Locate the line localhost
  4. To block the website for example, just add this text under localhost:

    You can add as many sites any site, However you will need to prefix it with "".
  5. Save the file. Spiegel will now be blocked in all web browsers.
