Put leechblock add-on on your browser (it's free) and block the site. Otherwise will power - find something else to do. Facebook is a habit - not an addiction. Bad habits are easier to break by replacing them with good habits or redirecting the behavior that is becoming problematic into something constructive.
I really wouldn't know as I use FB to post my links to get feedback from friends. It's a social site where we get to know what's happening around the world --- or where our friends are. Probably, you can do schedules like 1 hour, 3 times a week, and then stick to it. I browse everyday, as I used it for stock trades and read news about the market, among others.
I find Facebook too aggravating to get addicted to it. I joined FB to keep up with friends and relatives around the country, but mostly I get political posts, jokes, and other stuff to wade through. I block all the game invitations and check it twice a day for meaningful posts. Good luck!!
Blocks are helpful, but I think one has to start small. The problem with facebook is that your connections get too bloated to dump all at once. I wrote an article a while back about a blackout week challenge, that might be helpful to you (I'll post it below). Basically it starts with a week of no-facebook, and shows you how wonderful it can really be.

Should you tell people when their hub is bad or has mistakes?I always ask at the bottom of my hubs for comments good or bad. And I have left some telling people that they've done things like used the word rod instead rode for instance. Or maybe that they could link different parts of the same story...
