I still have this same problem, and I am now semi-retired.
At school, or at work, there is one main thing to do. At home there are many more options.
To get work done, I sometimes go to a coffee shop. It is noisy, but I only take notes and writing pad for one thing. There is nothing else to do. Another option is the university library, and again I only take one thing to do.
When I was at work, there was only one thing to do – get on with work.
At home, I have to have an office. When that gets cluttered or I start to browse the internet (and chat about ADD) I move to the dining table.
I my case, I have to remove distractions.
