The first step is admitting you have a problem. Therefore, I'm not admitting anything. :p

I thought the first step was denial?

In which case I deny this silly notion that the OP brought up.

Addicted to the internet? No. I can quit any time I want.

So can I and to prove it I'm not going to turn on my computer until 2010.

EDIT: M-m-m-y n-name is M-mineworksfine. And I'm an in-in-internet-aholic.

I'm not addicted to the internet. I like using it, because it's an excellent source of information and entertainment. I've been using it recently very rarely, and if so about 30 minutes. I didn't miss it that much, but it's good to read these forums again!

Addicted? Probably: even when I'm on vacation, if I have to go without Internet access for a couple weeks, I start thinking of a whole bunch of things I need to look up and get a little antsy. It probably doesn't help that I've oriented my life around using the Internet for things, so I practically *have* to use it all the time.

On the flip side, I still have friends that I regularly spend time with in person, I successfully completed my Bachelor's degree and have a respectable job, so my online life hasn't gotten in the way of my real life. Plus, the Internet has allowed me to keep in touch with friends and family far away (hooray for video chat!), and make new ones all over the world, allowing me to explore new places when I visit them in real life (and in my experience, they've been just as fun to talk to and hang out with in real life as online).

And on the other other side...
It's all about the pterodactyl porn.

My Internet Experience? enabled me to find an example in roughly ten seconds without using a search engine, and I'm not quite sure I should be proud of that... :unsure:

Idk, I don't think i'm addicted to the internet. If I don't have access to it for a while, it's really no big deal.

*looks down in notification area at clock* "2:38 AM? I would have been up anyway!" :p

Ok so maybe im a little addicted then...:p

That said, because a lot of my life is tied up in online services, (E-Mail, uni grades, etc.) having some sort of internet access is a bit important to me.
