  • Do you mean that you want a single word that means "I spend too much time on youtube"? Or did you just want a word to replace "spend too much"? – McB Jan 30 '15 at 19:47
  • +1 for at least using youtube and not ELU in your sentence! Here's two ways to shorten it, but they're probably not correct, so they'll stay where they belong, here in the comments: "I'm hooked on youtube." or I'm addicted to youtube." – Papa Poule Jan 30 '15 at 19:55

exorbitant

exceeding the bounds of custom, propriety, or reason, especially in amount or extent; highly excessive

inordinate

not within proper or reasonable limits; immoderate; excessive

unreasonable

excessive, immoderate, or exorbitant; unconscionable

I would see all these three as stronger than too much.

Waste might be a good choice

I waste too much time on youtube

Waste and spend share similarities in meaning, but waste implies that you shouldn't be spending so much.

    I think that's close to the answer, if not it, but just "I waste time on youtube" would make it shorter and, IMO keep the accurate notion that waste implies too much – Papa Poule Jan 30 '15 at 20:01
