I am a computer addict. I won't last a day without opening my computer and surfing the net, playing games and other activities I do with the computer. Even when I'm supposed to be preparing for an exam, I usually review in front of the computer while surfing the net! I spend lots of hours in front of my PC (ranges from 8-16+ hrs!). That's why when my computer was sent to the repair shop last December, I was very bored and I kept on calling the shop to check the status of my PC. I got the PC back after almost 3 weeks and that was already January (quite a long wait)! Within those weeks of waiting, I often visited internet shops but also spent my time doing other activities like biking and other outdoor activities (which I think was a positive effect of being away from the computer for a while). Now that I got my PC back, I'm even more addicted to it but I also manage to do activities not involving the computer.

removing internet connection wire is not helping as its in my hand again to put it back. Infact if i dont use computer for 1 day then before sleeping i fantasize about orkut, scrapping, myLoting and all... Its just crazy.

I too am a computer addict. I am too addicted to Lexulous ( a variant of scrabble game played online developed by Indian brothers) and just yesterday I discovered myLot and started my addiction here too.

Yes, I am a computer addict. I have been using computer since 1983. I had a home computer BBC Micro with 6502 processor. It had no hard disk and it came with Basic compiler loaded. Before that I had a Casio PB110 pocket computer. It was a pc with only 544 bytes of memory. I learned my computer programming in that tiny machine. I always carried it with me. I think I am the biggest computer addict.

I am not addictive with computer but I will use computer because nowadays my work is on computer so I am tending to use computer not as an addiction but it is a useful.

Well, it does happen and there are times when I find most of my waking moments where I have to be online, or here in myLot. Yes, I do work a Full time job, and so that takes from my time, but on my days off I do spend a lot of time online here in myLot posting and responding back to others, or checking my Email as well. This is a Great site, and would like to Welcome you here, and wishing you the Best as well.
