Get a social life outside of the Internet. It'll make him want to go out more.

I want an Admin/Moderator to check the IP addresses of these accounts and find out if they're associated in any way.

This thread is ridiculous.

I just like that someone is asking about internet addiction on an internet forum. Like asking a cake shop owner how to give up eating cakes

Cycling is a lovely way to experience the outside world in a relaxed fashion, without exerting too much energy unless you really want to.

After a visit to NAHBS it will be. He'll meet Richard Sachs, or Sacha White, or Ben Serotta, or Nick Crumpton, or Andy Newlands etc. and he'll be broke

Get him a 56Kbp modem.

Although, back when I was addicted to the Internet the joke was get him a 1200 baud modem.

He needs to go to a gym, walk around, cycle or at least stroll at the mall.
