Hi Ganesh44, I am having the same problem but I am going out tonight but don't want to, I have to try and make myself go, what you have to do is set a time for doing outdoor thins and then set a time to do your computer work and keep it that way so you don't miss out any of your outdoor task.

Oh this is a good discussion. Yes I admit I am an addict. Lol. Sounds like it came from some group theraphy. Yes I am an addict to the internet and my computer! Simply because my line of work requires me so. And I have no choice because I have to earn a living with my dirt cheap low pay. I can't do anything in my work without the internet and my computer and I have certainly missed a lot of the outdoors, and other activities I used to do when I was younger. Sports is one of them. I cannot say if I want to cure my addiction for it is how I earn a living. I would however want to just shove it one day and be free. For that I would have to get rich. Lol. Cheers!!!

I think there's so many people who would be classes as being addicted to the internet if they done the same thing with drink or gambling. But because its the internet and everyone uses it, and its classed as a social thing its harder to say if someone is addicted, or just using it as its meant to be used. I think i use the internet and my computer to much. At work im on the computer all day as im reuired to be, then at home i have my laptop with me for a good few hrs. I do probably need to cut back, and i aim to. I survived perfectly fine from the internet when on my 4wk holiday and didnt have withdrawl symptons, so i wouldn't class myself as major addict.

I used to be addicted to my computer, and especially to the internet....but when you've practically seen almost all the good sites on the net that interest you , you kinda get bored..Which is what happened to me... Here's what happened... I my marks from my midterm exam were horrible, so my dad forcibly took away my laptop. This meant i could not use my own applications and surf in my room or stuff, and i'm really lazy. So i adopted a new hobby for a while, shooting. ive actually gotten very good. So heres what you have to do, try to use your computer for less than an hour everyday, and try out a new hobby, there are millions of things to do out there. Like you said you have lost touch with the outdoors..Go camping for a few days, or plant a tree.. Do anything that relieves stress, cause during the first week you will have a lot of stress about not going on the computer...

Yes i am addicted to computer and internet.I cant imagine a life without computer and internet.But i am not just addicted to computer alone i love various other outdoor as well as indoor games and varoius other stuff .If i was addicted to computer alone then it might have proven to be big problem.As of now my computer addiction has not got the better of me.You could try the same.Try to find some other outdoor things that you like and concentrate on that more than computer.At first it may seem difficult but it soon becomes a habit.
