Manage Distractions with ColdTurkey (Windows Users)

ColdTurkey will temporarily block you off of social media sites, games, programs and any other addicting websites.   ColdTurkey lets you block your own access to distracting websites, your mail servers, or anything else on the Internet. Just set a period of time to block for, add sites to your blacklist, and click "Start." Until that timer expires, you will be unable to access those sites--even if you restart your computer or delete the application.

  2. You can also make a custom list of other sites to block.  Click on Custom to add more sites to the ColdTurkey blacklist.
