I NEED to restrict myself to mumsnetting in the evening/weekends as I have no will power and I post too much during the day and want to be more productive at work.

Can anyone help me out ?

Have you got MN book marked? When I gave up for Lent I found that by removing it from my bookmark list (and thus having to actually type out MN in google) was a good mental reprimand (sort of) to say STOP...don't type it

good luck

haha. We've just got more open internet access at work, with restrictions, and I daren't type in mumsnet to see if I can get on here.

Might have some serious questions to ask as to why I'm on mumsnet when I work with high-risk offenders, lol.

This might concentrate your mind.

Oh my!!! I just started laughing so loud when I read this. It is addictive, I think.

So it's not possible then ?

I know you can restrict access for kids re porn and other unsuitable stuff and I seem to remember that you can specifically name websites to block but I can't rememner how to do it.

I'm now at work btw !

Move your screen so that eveyone can see it - worked for me when office went very open plan

Have own office isolated away from anyone else and no chance of swapping with anyone else.

Simple but drastic

log a call with your helpdesk asking for it to be blocked on the firewall.
