This Shinzen clip worked for me, to decrease discussing and increase meditation.

Further to Morgan's suggestion: it's very normal.

So, like with Internet surfing, one can just start carving out small tracks of time (like 5 minutes) to not be online and enjoy sensateness: sitting on couch, taking walk, just-eating meal. But, regardless, I think it will pass-- that a person gets fed up with the site/being online and rejects it all naturally-- then comes back and so go these little cycles which expand and contract in time-in, time-away, gone, here. 

And if you stay "obsessed" with it, well, there are people who just do one thing exclusively and they are usually pretty talented about it. So that's okay, too, to become/be that "I do this one thing" person.

Haha, I wasn't being that serious, guys.  It's a good addiction, it's making me practice more. emoticon

The way I see it, our minds are going to be filled with some sort of garbage, so it might as well be skillful garbage that's conducive to freedom from garbage.

That's my deep thought for the day.
