Do you think its a bad habit using internet? I think its not. But sometimes it seems to me it just wasting a along time. Its not only a bad habit but also help us to make a better habit. We can make a lot of friends by using internet, we can share our feelings using it. we can write there any descriptive article which will help us improve ourselves. We also can make some extra money by using internet like as mylot and other websites.

I don't think using internet is a bad thing. Well, some misuse it by visiting restricted sites and those are the times you can consider it bad when it turns into a habit, but other than that, i can't see why the internet can be a bad habit.

I don't think it is a bad habit. Taking advantage of the internet is a must for today. There are many advantages to use the internet. Such as it makes the world smaller and you can contact anybody via the net easily and the distance is no longer a difficulty. Besides, you can look for the information via the net and it is quite convenient. You can learn a lot online. I love China

Yes,maybe you opinion is right.Whether it is a good or bad habit largely depends on what you do in the net.If you only play some online games,it is not a good habit.If as you say,it is a good habit.

It depends on how you would handle the use of internet. For me, it's not a bad habit, for I consider this as a hobby, stress reliever, leisure time, and just like what I'm doing, sharing knowledge, opinion which somehow could help or enlighten someones' mood or problems. It would be a bad habit if you using it would be not useful anymore but more of abuse. For kids, they might got hooked with games to the extent of neglecting their studies. For adults, to the extent of overlooking the household chores for they take more time in chatting rather than spending time with family. But despite these disadvantages, there are also advantages especially when properly used.

I think it depends how you use the internet. You can find a lot of useful information online and you learn a lot, you can find new friends, you can earn money and there are a lot of other positive things. There are negative things about the internet as well. Some people use it in a bad way like hackers and scammers, and some people develop an internet addiction and neglect other aspects of their lives, because they spend so much time online. Spending time online can be a great way to relax after a busy day, and think that is fine as long as it doesn't get out of control and as long as you still manage to do the other things in your daily life.

I don't think using the internet is bad, I use it to make myself extra money, and that's not a bad thing, I use it to look up helpful information and I find it to be a very good thing.

Hi, From my point of view, using an internet is definitely not a bad habit. By having an internet, we have chance to improve ourselves and also we can get information instantly. It definitely play an important role in society. For example, if we do have internet at home, we can simply do any banking transaction, so it definitely save our time and hassle to travel to the bank to get it done. It sames goes to booking an air ticket. Nowadays,there are plenty of budget airlines and to book a ticket, we just need to go to website and key in the information, we can even book the air ticket instantly,So I would say ,internet has make our life so much convenience and easy. Most people are using internet in this advanced technology world. Even small kids are equipped with computer and internet which make them more alert on what is going on in this society. They will have chance to learn more educational program online and games.

yeah, sometime if we are sunken to deep into to the internet it wil make a bad habit. for example, you'll forget to eat, sleep, praying, and many else. in my point of view, we need a balance habitual, when you are going surfing to much, you need to stop it, relaxing your eyes, and going out to chit'n'chat with your friend. belive me, being balanced is good and you'll fell so happy all long day. ^_^

Hi, From my point of view, using an internet is not really a bad habit,it is a way to improve ourself with an advanced technology in the market. Mostly everyone is using computer in their daily life and it makes us feel so convenience by having internet at home and at office. Through internet, we can get information instantly and save lot of times when come to purchase online ticket or doing online shopping or even any banking transaction. Apart from it, we can easily keep in touch with our friends at another part of country by having internet. No need letter correspondence,by sending an email or even chat live, we can start talking to each other. Not only can chat ,but we can have a real chat live via video call(msn).It is so much fun and we can see each other too. So, I should say...without an internet, our live will be so backdated. We have to improve ourselves and only by having an internet in this world, then it enhance our live to be more flexible and advanced.

It really depends how you use the internet. When you use it badly and sure thing its bad. But if you do some useful things in the internet then its a good one. Life for me, I waste 4-6 hours of my time using the internet but I'm earning money. I chat with my friends. I create something and I learn from it. And I am happy! ;)

I honestly think it is a great thing and can also be a very bad thing; it all depends on how you use it and whether or not it interferes with your life. There are some people who are so addicted to being online that they fail to complete their everyday obligations, such as being productive at work, paying bills, taking care of the home, etc. I believe that a person needs to always be aware of how much time you spend on the internet and what exactly you are doing on there. If all you're doing is looking around and really just wasting time, turn the computer off and get up and do something productive. It is also a good thing because you have the ability to stay in contact with friends and family, complete work more efficiently, among other things. It's all about how you use it.

An addiction is something that you cannot help yourself from doing. So if you find that you are on the computer/internet until 3 or 4 in the morning and need to get up for work at 7am, and you do this every day, you may have a problem. If you are gambling online, getting into sites you shouldn't be, pirating things or just plain being irresponsible, then yes, maybe you should not be using the internet. But many people every day use it responsibly to make money and pay bills, buy gifts, research for topics like health related concerns, or even speak to doctors or professionals online. You can use programs/services such as Skype and talk to your family on the other side of the world for free. You can meet and chat with anyone from anywhere in the world and find out about new cultures, laws and practices. I think the good outweighs the bad. But all in all, it is the individuals actions that will determine whether or not the internet is used in a bad way.
