I know I am. I do tons of things online. I read newspapers from all over the world and look at sites as well. I am also in the process of trying to find work. People shake their head when informed of an internet addiction then I look at them with a smile and I ask a couple of questions, examples are - ow much soda a day do you drink? How much coffee? How much chocolate to you consume? How many cigarettes a day do you smoke? How many television shows a week do you watch that are like weekly favorites? You see we are ALL addicted to something.

I am tittle bit addicted to internet and computer,but i always put limit on my internet usage.There is a proper time table for me on the net.In the morning i spend one hour on the net and in between my jog i spend two to three hours.Now am working as a network mengineer in a software firm.In between my work i get lot of free time.If i get any free time mi like to spend it on mylot and other money making sites.Now a days gaming and Internet addiction is a growing problem facing many families, couples, and individuals both young and old. This psychological disorder is defined as uncontrolled gaming and Internet-related behavior which interferes with or impairs normal functioning, and causes severe emotional distress for the individual, their family, friends, or their loved ones. Gaming and Internet addiction can also disrupt one’s academic performance, or their job performance. Game and Internet addicts typically and unwittingly make games and cyberspace the top priority in their daily lives.
