Hello Friends! JUst be honest, are you hooked to the internet? How many hours do spend in it everyday? Well, sometimes I am but not really everyday though. I love to work there and explore. But I'm not that kind who forgets to eat or make bladder-break just because of it, I just know my limit. How about you, how hooked are you (if you are) to the internet? Thanks for sharing.

Hello there mjmlagat! I am very hooked to the internet that i don't have any limit. I do not have any rules when it comes to the internet. Im just you know, I am just an addict when it comes to the internet. Because internet offers me everything. Here you can do whatever you want, you like, you can even communicate all over the world by having an internet. So if sometimes i ran out of connection, I really go crazy!!

before i retired i never used the computer, since then i've had a laptop and started using one about 3 hrs a day, unless i'm playing games then it can get lenghty.

Hi there mjmlagat! Well, I do use the internet a lot. I am so dependent on it for a lot of reasons. For one, I use the internet for research purposes. Whenever I prepare my lectures, one the things that I turn to for extra information is the internet. Another reason is that I go online to communicate with friends and relatives here and abroad, which I do almost everyday. Another reason why the internet is indispensable for me is that I do have some online business (that is aside from the online activities I have like myLot). However, that doesn't mean that I am so hooked to the point that I am already addicted to it that I forget about the more important things that I have to attend to.

I have to admit I'm online most of the day. It's absolutely crazy! I wish I could be more balanced about it, but, I suffer from major depression and right now this is all I have the energy for lately AND playing with Mija (my cat) Purrs, Catwoman=^..^= & Mija

Yes I am hooked on the internet and there are many reasons behind why I am addicted to this endless network. There is so much that you can do on the internet from earn money to learning about a lot of new information that you want to learn about. I don't think that being hooked on the internet is a bad thing because the internet offers a lot of really good things I believe.

I am on my laptop every single day for most of the day and MyLot is the biggest culprit! I do freelance writing so I am not just surfing the net. I write on my blog and submit articles to different sites on the web. When I first bought a computer I never dreamed it would be such an important part of my life! Now I have a laptop so it goes just about everywhere with me.

I have to say I don't have time to get hooked I'm constantly busy and when I do get time it helps me to relax and just escape from the hecticness of my day. LOL!! I have to say that there are some days I spend no time on the net and then there are days I'm on it constantly.. Those are the days I'm usually working on the novel I'm coauthoring. So I use it for work at times. LOL!! take care and have a nice one.

I used to spend more hours than I care to admit on the Internet, mjmlagat, but I have since learned to control the amount of time that I do so. My reason for this is because I discovered that I was neglecting some of the things I really needed to be doing or things that I had previously enjoyed doing. These days I try to balance my time more wisely and the result is that I only spen a couple of hours online each day.

I am absolutely an addict. I am a stay at home mom and the only thing i do is take care of my little ones, clean the house, and when im not doing that, or i can do those things and still be on here. Prolly atleast 12 hours a day maybe a little less. I have been desperate to find ways just to make a few bucks here and there and since i am on already i feel i try to use my time wisely. Like learning about different sites and people. Im not on here much because I just started. I have .09 LOL but that dont matter. I love talking to you all anyways. I just have a hard problem coming up with discussions. Well thanks for listening to my input.
