Cold Turkey Blocker — Your personal toolkit for blocking distractions. Cold Turkey Blocker lets you temporarily block online distractions to help you focus and finish your work sooner.
Cold Turkey Blocker is designed to be easy to configure for your specific needs. You can set it to block anything from a specific webpage to the entire Internet. You can also allow exceptions, block applications, or even use it to lock yourself out of your computer!
Difficult to Circumvent
Other distraction blockers are too easy to circumvent. People use Cold Turkey Blocker because once you start a block, there's no easy way out. By default, timers are locked until your timer is up. The weekly recurring schedule can be locked until a certain time as well.

Many people feel that Cold Turkey has helped them be more productive, in fact, 97% of Cold Turkey Blocker Pro customers did or would recommend it to a friend.
Motivational block pages
When Cold Turkey Blocker blocks a website, you'll see a motivational quote to remind you that you should be working.
Use the included lists, or create your own by adding an unlimited number of websites. You can create up to six different lists that can be used interchangibly between timers and scheduled blocks.
Block the Internet with wildcards
Wildcards can be used to block the entire Internet by adding *.* to the block list. You can also use wildcards to block Google searches of unicorns: google.*/*q=unicorns*
Block specific pages
If you'd still want to allow Facebook but block a specific page, like a Facebook profile, you can do this by adding: facebook.com/username
Exceptions and white listing
Websites can be added to the exceptions list if you'd like to access to them when they would otherwise be blocked. For example if reddit.com is blocked, but you still want to access a subreddit: reddit.com/r/getmotivated
Start a timer
Pick when you'd like the block to end, then start the timer by flipping the switch. By default, Cold Turkey Blocker will lock the timer to prevent changes. You can change this behaviour for future timers in the 'Settings' tab.
There's no need to guess where you spend your time. Enable the statistics feature to keep track of your biggest time wasters. None of the data collected is sent off of your computer.
The new dashboard will keep track of active blocks, how long is left and when the next break is going to be. If you're using daily time limits, the remaining time will counted down here.
To help create a routine, you can set a weekly schedule that automatically repeats every week. By default, you won't be able to stop a scheduled block that already started, but this can be changed in the 'Settings' tab. While you're there, you can also lock the schedule until a certain date.
Set a password to prevent other users from viewing or changing your settings. You can also have a friend set the password so that they have control over your settings.
Not all distractions are online. You can use Cold Turkey Blocker to block anything from games to email clients. You can even block most Windows Store apps as well (for Windows 8 and above).
Daily time limits and breaks
Sprints are useful if you'd prefer to alternate the block on and off while you work to allow for breaks at predefined times. If you'd rather have more control over your breaks, daily time limits provide a daily allowance for items in your block list.
Two click start
A timed block can quickly be started with only two clicks from the system menu icon.
Frozen Turkey is a feature that helps you schedule time away from your computer. When activated, you'll be locked out and completely unable to use your computer (via Windows lock screen or a fullscreen app in macOS).
