Online earnings.. addictive?

Much like many of my other vices (smoking, gambling, caffeine), online earning has somehow wedged itself into my daily life without me even noticing it! I'm coming to this realization as I start getting into doing free offers again over at Treasure Trooper (I took an unofficial hiatus from it - because I was really, really sick of it and burned out.) I've watched my account go up $15 in the past week and I'm really excited, so I've been going on like two-three times a day for about an hour each. I can't help myself. And about a year ago, I was OBSESSED with MyLot. I came on and responded to AT LEAST 100 discussions a day. Now my obsession has shifted back to TT. Does anyone have any similar feelings? Do you feel like doing all these online activities for money - is somewhat of an addiction? That actually MAY interrupt your social life? What site are YOU currently addicted to? (NO ref links, please). Just thought I'd share!

Online Earning, huh really i got addicted too, In last 4 years, I dodne things i never thought of, but one thing i can't forget is mylot. MyLot was the first site i joined to make money online. I have made ony $10 till now, but the amount of knowledge i gained is priceless. I think it is best for any newbies, who wants to earn online. Ok about my addiction, I opened up my own classified site, traffic exchange, many blogs, hmm.. affiliate marketing, article marketing and many more, its like i know 80% of the earning opportunity on net. It's not so easy I have devoted around 4 hours daily for last 4 years. Now I am capable enough to write these things, and surprisingly last week i was thinking of where i started my online carrier and "MyLot" was the answer, so after a long time of more than 3 years I came back and was happy to see my account valid. I really thank Mylot from bottom of my heart to provide me a platform when i was not knowing anything about online earning. It's really cool. I enjoy this!

I love making money and earning gift vouchers online. It has become a bit of a hobby for me. In addition i like spending my rewards. It wont make me rich anytime soon however it gives me something to do when i am bored xx

Yeah, actually it depends, as in your case may be you are not so much of need to become rich, but i know many people who become rich since they desperately needed that... and it's good that at least you are happy with your activities, that's more important in anybody's life.

I am addicted to winster. It is a site for earning amazon gift codes and gift codes to a couple of other places. Other than that I like to hang out here on myLot when I get a chance. I don't spend extreme amounts of time on any one site just like to play anywhere I can make an extra 5 or 10 bucks and have fun while doing so.

I have been earning online for 10 years...so I guess you could say that I am addicted. My own website/blog is my biggest addiction...as it is the base of my income. I am glad to here that you are back in the earning game. I wish you continued luck with it

No addiction at all, I use my online earnings towards an investment idea I have coming up in Dec so working hard to get as much as possible as quickly a possible. My slight addiction might be my blog which we created to help others earn online. There is no better feeling then logging into PayPal and seeing a few new payments arrived while you were asleep. Good luck with it all and hope it gets better and better for you!

I have several I am addicted to. It can and does become an obsession that must be managed - for me, I strive to keep my time online earning to a minimum because I have let it disrupt my family life before. It is a matter of moderation - easier said than done!

I went through a similar phase last year when I started with hits4pay. The minimum payout was $25 dollars, but I was easily making it. And sometimes I was even doubling it. I was so addicted to it, that I bounced into myLot in my quest for more, and more. I think it has subsided a bit now. I'm waiting for the next wave to kick back in...

Hi Maezee, I agree with you because it happened to me. When i was still new in mylot, i am really hooked in here. My husband is calling me to sleep but i always ask for an extension until i realized that it's already late night. in the morning before preparing myself for work i open mylot and respond to some discussions. whew...isn't a sign of being addict here? hehehehe!

Yes, It is quite addictive. Especially when you see very interesting topics. The internet consumes 70% of my time every day.

Oh yes, I agree it's addicted. I spend hours online and I do try to earn some money online too. I mainly use Facebook, Dooyoo, Ciao and just joined here yesterday but already think an addiction is developing!!

i'm not addictive to online earning at all... when i have a free time, then i will spend a little bit of time online to earn a little bit more money... but i won't especially dedicate myself to online earning as i already have a full time job and other commitments to do everyday... take care and have a nice day...
