I'm not looking for parental control because I will have the access password

In fact, I am personally addicted to a few websites that I am really unable to control myself but they are really wasting my time and energy.

I'd like to know if there is any software or extension where it can block me from visiting particular sites for a certain period of time? probably no password can override the rule...only after the time has passed

or do I really need to get someone to keep the password for me?

final question is the cross platform, I have a few different browsers, will it work in one browser while not working for another? Then it will be of use IMO

If you hold-know the password and you know how you did the settings you will know how to undo it...
Someone else have to setup everything since you don't trust yourself!
If it's not someone else... there is no escaping yourself...
Better solution will be to change your habits, or just let it run its course and hope you will get bored/mature about it at some point.

The only thing i can think is make a python scrip that reads the packets from wireshark and when the destination of the packet has the ip of the website you dont want to visit it will alt+f4 or ctrl+w. I haven't used the python library that reads wireshark packets, but it will proabably have the command to read the dest ip. You can also make it a file to start at startup and pyinstaller to make it an exe, so it doesn't show the command line and/or rbtray to run it at background.
You can still just close the app, but that's the best solution i can think of.
