Just try to let it go and go outside to get some fresh air or go for a walk or something. I was also like this too. Whenever I would use the computer, I would never let it go that I would stay here from day to night time. Everyone told me to stop but I couldn't. I had to stop someday because I couldn't be like this and for people to tell me I gain weight, wasn't something I would like to hear. When I use the computer I use it only for a bit or after I do my things, work, then my walks, etc. at nights.

Being addicted to computer and using internet a lot is not always bad. It all depends on how you utilize you're time when using those technologies. One example is relying in the internet to do you're homework, project and almost anything school related stuff. It is bad when you use internet to distribute illegal copies of copyrighted materials to others.

3-4 years ago when I asked the same question the answer was... If you find ana answer share it with us :D Just remember what you used to do before getting hooked to the pc and start doing it again :D Find yourself a girlfriend and have fun :D Worked for me :D

I think that a lot of people are addicted to the internet at the moment, but there isn't all that much that we can do about it because most of us need the internet in our lives in order to survive. The thing to worry about is when you're spending time online for most of your day and not actually doing anything useful with the time that you're spending online. I used to have this problem, but then realised that I do certainly things to earn money online and I decided that it was a much better idea to do these things instead.

yes like what others had said... take a fresh air from time to time... try not to get hook here at mylot... we are all addicts in the net... well mylot could be addictive specially when you start seeing those numbers doubling... you know try to find things that you like to do outside. like me i do love to take photographs of different things. and that is the only way i could keep myself from going on line... may be try to party or have a friendly date with friends... you know go out some times.

Well, first of all, you have to realize that it's not a physical addiction. It may be so mentally, but you have the power to override your desires. Don't say you can't control yourself, because you can. No one can do it for you and no one can help you other than give advice. You will break the addiction as soon as you really want to.
