    I know a couple people who use standing desks at work with decent results.

    If you sit for long periods, at least use a well-designed ergonomic chair, not some random kitchen chair. It may not promote back strength or excellent posture, but it won't cut off leg circulation etc.

    It's not exactly unplugging, but I find having a smartphone helps fill in for a lot of seated computer use. It's handy for 'impulse' checking of e-mail, calendar or isolated factoids (via Google/Yelp/etc) while remaining just inconvenient enough to use that I don't then spend another hour surfing.

    Here is the tool I most often use to break away from my computer

    Looks like my work shoes...

    Anyway, seriously OP, you need to get involved in things that will distract you without thinking "Crap, I need to get away from the computer for a while." Find some activities (alone or with a group) that will just plain make you too busy or otherwise distracted to even think about how you're not on the computer. You'll just realize you haven't been for a while.
