I am sort of an IT worker, so I have to stay at a computer more than 10 hours per day. Is computer that necessary in your daily life? How much time do you spend at a computer everyday?

I spend 9 to 10 hours per day. I have a computer-related job, so I am spending a lot in front of the computer. Personally, for me computer is necessary in my daily life, as this is where I get my daily income for myself. :-)

The amount of time I spend each day on the computer is probably too much. Even though I am trying to make money, I do not want to lose my eye-sight in the process. Maybe I should upgrade to a flat-screen, in order to prevent eye strain. Computers can get to become so addictive however.

The only time I'm really not on the computer is when I'm eating, sleeping, or in the bathroom it seems. Constantly going to school for IT, and owning an IT Contract Business makes life without a computer difficult and on average I usually put in 10-12 hours in front of my PCs.

Too much actually. I study IT so at school i'm always behind my laptop. When i come home i need to do some asignments, so again, behind the laptop. I would guess 8-9 hours/day.

Currently I'm student and as all of my study materials are in computer. I also tend to spend much more time in the computer everyday. I manage to spend around 6-7 hours in the internet including surfing net as well. I spend sometime on doing my assignments, studying and then surfing net on the rest time.

For me, i use computer as much as possible. I have many rivals in using my computer not mentioning the visitors. I use computer 3 hours each day. The computer is not that necessary in my life because i can still do things even without it and i will surely live without it.

Almost all except sleeping time I think.However,I usually have to download something without my CRT screen at the time of sleeping.It's a important element of my life.I had thought that I got a disease called internet addiction.

I spend most of the day on the computer. I would say somewhere between 10-16 hours a day maybe.
