No, I don't think you are addicted to internet. Unless you start saying you prioritize internet over your responsibilities, right? Before, I would be online for 10 hours, most of the time wasting time, and money. That was me when I got so hooked into it. I am not an internet addict either. Yes, I also spend time to check mails, online accounts, and to research. But I think the computer age (and internet age) has got something to do with it. :P

That's good. Then you know you are not addicted to internet. I actually think people who have the skills to work on softwares are great.

I think I am more addicted than you are. I spend more time than that in front of the internet, and the worst part is I really don't get sick of it. There is always something that can entertain you on the internet. The only reason I get off early is because my eyes hurt! Every generation spends more and more time on the internet. I wonder what will happen with the generations to come!

May be ,As we do have for Smoking and drinking , the future generation people will be having counselors and advising agents for telling or advising people that how a person could get rid of internet.

Well, I can admit on my days off I spend a lot of time online, but a lot of it is either doing things like checking Email and posting here in myLot. Sometimes it might be surfing looking for something, but personally I try to spend a lot of quality time online for sure. For me, I cannot imagine my life without being online and glad we have this choice for sure.

No dude i dnt think so that you are addicted, the people who says you addicted they must not internet users, they just use to surf some social sites and chat with friends and thats all............ They don't know that they can earn on internet... 8 hours is normal for a person who is interested in internet and surfing.....

I don't know about you, but I know that I am most certainly addicted to the internet. I've been staying at home with my children since my son was born four and a half years ago. When Paul was smaller, I spent a great deal of my waking hours working on scrapbooks. I still spend just as much time on the internet, only now I am also trying to make some money with my online work as well. So, though I am still addicted, I think that my addiction is a little bit more productive.

Hello my friend. If you would have said that you spend 16 hours seven days a week on the internet then I would say oh yes you are addicted. But 8 hours my friend although lots of hours you still have time for other priorities in your life. So no not addicted in my opinion. I do spend a lot of time on the internet but when I have things off-line that need my attention, internet or not I get up and go. It is important that we balance and make sure we do not forget the important things in life.

I used to suffer from a similar phase but don't worry this addiction will go once you find some other priorities. When I was "so called addict" to internet I had no other activity to do. My exams had just gotten over and I was sitting idle at home so internet surfing was the only escape route. Now I am over that habit since I rarely get time to spend on internet, but I still come back to check my mails and access mylot once in a while.

You don't really seem addicted to me. I was addicted once, with earning online, internet really sucks all of your time sometimes. Now I try to limit my computer usage, I rest in between too. ANd I don't play that much anymore...Being a computer addict is really dangerous..
