Link: Paul Graham talks about addiction and how “procrastinating” on the internet is essentially “getting drunk”.

“People commonly use the word “procrastination” to describe what they do on the Internet. It seems to me too mild to describe what’s happening as merely not-doing-work. We don’t call it procrastination when someone gets drunk instead of working.”
