My suggestion would be to get rid of internet altogether and use internet cafe for the forum, etc time.

I do this so as not to waste too much time just playing on the internet. I can just get lost in the many interesting places on the internet if I do not time myself. When the timer goes off, the roaming stops. I use the internet for book research, so turning it off is not an option, nor is eliminating the visual as the visual makes all the difference in my research, but that does not give me license to just wander around doing nothing of any import for hours on end.
So I use a timer. It works for me. Maybe it will work for you too.

Get away from the flat more often. Just walk out of the door and go to a park or beach to meditate.
Go for a retreat. I see that Dhammaruwan is giving a retreat next month at the Victoria Buddhist Society.
Listen to the Paritta Chanting he did as a young boy. Its among the best that you can find anywhere.
