Challenge: No Internet & Cell Phone For 7 days

I've known this blogger since I was very young. Inspired by Leo Babauta's post "A Month With Limited Internet, & Now No Cell Phone", I have decided to go offline for 7 days. It believe it is an important challenge. Similarly to Leo Babauta, I:
  • Make my living on the Internet.
  • Watch movies on the Internet.
  • I receive my mail on the Internet.
  • I manage my academic duties on the Internet.
  • Study on the Internet.
  • Listen to music on the Internet.
  • Practice programming on the Internet. 
  • Socialize on the Internet.
  • I pay my bills on the Internet.
  • I make my purchases on the Internet. 
  • Backup my data on the Internet.
  • And so on...
I don't consider myself as a person struggling with internet addiction, but as a person who spends a lot of time online and sees the Internet as something that has of extreme value and importance in my life.

So, from Monday, 17th July till Sunday, 23rd July, I will not be connected to the Internet and my phone will be turned off. They will be out of reach and if possible out of the house to avoid the temptation. I will be writing down what happens every day, and in addition to not being connected to the internet, the challenge includes:
  • No SMS or chatting of any kind.
  • No movies or series of any kind.
  • No listening to music of any kind.
  • No use of laptop of any kind.
  • No use of cell-phone of any kind.
  • No use of television of any kind.
As mentioned above, the challenge will go for 7 days and in addition to that, it is a "cold turkey" challenge. Cheating is not allowed nor tolerated and would mean the challenge has failed.
