In the Summer of May 2011, I completely abstained from the Internet as an experiment and to lessen my Internet addiction. I have since returned but I have a strong desire to live without Internet. Please let me know if you know of a community that abstains from Internet as I long to join.
I also apologize for the lack of material and relevance to synesthesia.

Does this have anything to do with my letter-color or time-space synesthesia?
