I just read in one of the newspaper that more than 42% of chinese youth is addicted to internet. They spend more than 6 hours per day on net. The the chinese government is considering this as a decease and starting new sections in hospitals to handle this. I never thought spending much time on internet is a problem. I too spend much time when i am away from family. It has not affected my personal life at all. How much time you spend on internet every day? Is it affecting your personal life in any way? Is yes, how are you planning to come out of it?

I guess I was somehow addicted. I will be on internet for more than 10 hours a day. But most of the time, I will concentrate on the earning opportunities that are available in the internet. I don't waste my time in chatting with some friends and surfing sites and playing games. Thank you.

Oh wow. xD This isn't so surprising though. . .a lot of people in many countries who have access to a computer is addicted to the internet. Its a neverending fad. I spend over 6 hours per day on it on average, half the day during weekends. . .it doesn't affect my social life at all (or lack thereof. I've never really been much of a people person. The internet actually helps my social life, with social networks such as Facebook and Myspace). I can't imagine a day where the Internet just went away. It would be the equivalent to the world ending because so many people around the world use the internet, whether it be for work, socializing with friends from faraway countries or locally, or just for pure entertainment, among practical things such as buying groceries or booking hotels.

Yes, as soon as I wake up in the morning, the first button I touch first is the POWER BUTTON of my laptop. Hahaha.

I can say that I am not addicted to internet, but my day is not complete if I don't do some of my internet things. Nowadays internet becomes a necessity and I consider it in my own needs. It is where I usually find informations that I needed for work and personal interests.

I can still say that I am not addicted to internet as I can work on my PC even without internet connection. But internet is very important to me because by the use of internet I can earn extra money like replying in mylot, I can earn money while doing the things I enjoy most.
