when trying to quit anything, you have to wean off of it slowly. if you just quit one day then you'll have the strongest urge to go back to it the other. limit your time on the computer, chopping off ten minutes each day or every other day, or whatever works, until you're off. i hate using the computer too much because it makes you feel lazy as heck afterwards and sometimes you don't gain anything, so to reduce the temptation, i shut off the entire internet modem for 3 days to a week at a time. physically turning off the computer a set number of days per week is also helpful, but just remember that if you don't start limiting yourself now, you'll be on myspace forever.
p.s. and don't switch to facebook - that's basically the same thing.
