    I cannot live without internet for even a day.

    I believe there are more like me.

    I would like to know, how many of you are addicted to the internet.

    thank you in advance.

    Can't vote:

    Stuck at 56k pay by hour, sucks. My computer now it makes up 1/2 my days entertainment.

    The internet I love but hate no HS connection, and limiting my use.

    Only when you're lonely...

    I can't say that I've got an addiction, but sometimes when you're feeling lonely it can help a lot

    Go to the Maldives. You'll forget about it immediately and then wonder why you'd ever want to log on again! I promise!
    That's me, as confused as a hungry baby in a topless bar!

    Definitely hooked!

    I don't remember life before the net. Doesn't matter where I am either, I use it daily. Laptop, smart phone, cafe...whatever! Banking, Airline bookings, biz, photo, legal, ECT.

    Being self employed and a non conformist and not a slave to the whims of bureaucracy or time zones, I just couldn't function without it. I even met my wife online.

    Iím waiting for the day when (Nokia) makes the Buck Rogers wrist watch with a good holographic interface.

    I still like reading newspaper tho.

    It's not that I'm really addicted to internet, although I use it daily. I can do without it, so voted for "not addicted". But if I have no access to it for some time, it feels like something is missing

    That's called 'denial'. You are addicted. The first step to treatment is admitting you have a problem. But you have to *want* to help yourself.

    should we make the online 12 step therapy group for the internet addicts?
    There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning. And that, I think, was the handle -- that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of old and evil...

    Poor me!
    I've never thought it's that bad! What should I do now? Is it all very dangerous? A-a-a-a! O, Doc, please advise me some effective therapy!

    TT & EMK,

    I'd help if I could but I haven't been able to get past step 1 for three years now.
