That has nothing to do with DDF and everything to do with me, though.

DDF or JS ?

Saw many airfare deals on DDF, got great CC advice etc.

JS was mostly fun before I reformed, now I drink much less and dont spend time online

(I was diagnosed with spinal stenosis and extensive rehab gave me back my strength, I rarely go online at home, whereas in years prior i'd waste hours on the computer)

I did meet some great people on DDF and off and certainly know the prison system now

What's the difference between options 2 and 3 in the poll?

Same difference as a new car and a brand new car. 😂
I just found a new supply of forks!

Pretty much supported my family with MS/CC apps for a few years until I finished school and started a real job.

Just a lesson on how Hashem provides...my main gig at the time was Redbird. I had 13 cards and would buy prepaids for 5% CB and load 65k (5k x13) a month at Target. At 1% cost I netted around $2,600 a month. That together with other MS (and my wife's small income) we got by. Literally the very day I started my job, Target stopped allowing debit loads on Redbirds effectively ending the gig.

StayFocusd - Chrome Web Store
Any way around it when you’re desperate to see what’s going on in JS or what deals are being missed ? :)

Darn how I wish you started your job a couple months later. Could have kept the redbird going for longer

There's no perfect solution, but if you're looking to add in a few steps to help you remember your decision, these could help.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

You can use K-9 and give someone else the password. Even you you don't want the filter, you can use just the time feature to block during certain hours. It works across all browsers and users.

True I've wasted tons of time but I started my Amazon business because of DDF!

Started Amazon because of DDF ? Explain please

I've gained a lot here but to be honest (with myself) I wish I never started
I wasted way too much time here on DDF
