Withdrawal simptoms

I have read an article recently that stepping away from the computer, or from online life can give you withdrawal symptoms similar to those wining off drugs.
 Now i do not know for sure how going off drugs feels like, since i never taken any, but it sure feels bad when i am not online, and depressing and boring. i found my self checking updates on my iphone even when i am pair programming and doing stuff.

Anyway i am not sure how to stop. Any ideas, any activities that might help?

Going to be a jerk and say: real life?

What I meant was: you're obviously bored and not satisfied with your current activities so you need to do something pretty dramatic to change the pace of your daily life. For me, what always worked, were holidays away from home. Like something totally drastic, where let's say you have no phone signal or better yet, no time to check the phone. Trips & hikes in the mountains are an example; or maybe you should visit a foreign country where you'll be charged too much for internet roaming so checking updates will not be an option :P Go see the world!
