24 hours without internet is so stressful!
March 28, 2012 7:39pm CST
I don't know that having no internet is so stressful. I seldom go out and I spend 15 hours a day online. Two days ago for 24 hours the internet is down and its really killing me. I'm restless I don't know what to do. I watch tv but its seems theirs no good to watch in tv. I listen to music but its seems my ear is not into it. I smoke half a pack in the morning and I still bored. I'm happy that internet is back after 24 hours. Imagine if its out for a week. I think I'm going to have a nervous break down. I never thought I'm that addicted to internet.

15 hours a day on the interent doesnt sound too healthy, maybe if your internet is down its a good time to spend some quality time with your friends and family. It sounds like your are addicted to the internet and maybe you should look at cutting it down.

My friends are all busy with their life and with their works. And since I don't have a job and can't go out with them since I don't have money. And I don't want also to be burden to my friends. I life with my family so what time I don't spend online I spend it with them.

It sounds like you have become so dependent on internet now. You should lessen your computer time. It's bad for you health. 15 hours a day is bad for the health. Do you exercise? You should go out too. There's more to life than sitting in front of your computer.

I want to do exercise but I have no time. I really don't go online just to have some fun I go online because this is the only way I know I can earn money. I earn 100 dollar a month more or less and even 200 dollars a month in good time. And since I don't have a job this is my only source of income.

I would consider 15 hours a day online addiction. I would do my best to seek help, or at least try to break the addiction. Get family members to take you on a vacation someplace with no internet access. See the brighter side of life - the mountains, the lakes, the outdoors. Try and remember a life before the internet and do your best to recreate that. Have some board games at hand. Try a musical instrument. Just get your mind off of the internet and go out! Good luck, mate, and I hope you can break the addiction.

Its not addiction. Its the way to earn money. Why will I seek help for something that make me earn money? Since I do forex trading I need to be online as much as possible always. Because opportunity comes when its less expected and I need to be online always.

I'm pretty much the same, when the net goes down I feel like I run out of stuff to do. The internet is my source for news and entertainment. If you're looking for something to get to help kill time when it goes down, I'd take a quick run to a book store and pick up a decent sized paperback or two, hopefully on a subject that you really enjoy reading/learning about. It usually melts the hours for me and before I know it the information superhighway is back and I'm plugged back in.

I guess theirs just some of us who spend our time online. Maybe in the near future all works are also done at home. Safe against bad elements.As crime rate increase more and more solution to this is electronic money and electronic jobs. I guess right now we feel we are addict. But I guess in the future we feel we are pioneers. lols.

Wow, internet is really a must have for you. Well, I have some stressful days too because of no internet connection. It is okay not have internet connection during the holidays;however, when it comes to the times that I am working in the school, I do really need it. We don't have internet connection at home but before I graduated from college, I really decided to have it because I can use it in my job hunting. I know the many benefits of it. I can do my research, study online, communicate with friends and relatives who are far from me and even make money online. Well, if ever this vacation, I won't have internet connection, I think that I can still enjoy my days. I love to read books and watch tv. I love talking too with my family. I won't be stress at all, I think. I just want to have stable internet connection once there are classes.

Why is it important? And why you can live 24 hours without it but can't if its more than that? Me I can't. I need to be online 15 hours a day. this is the only way I can earn messy money. Although its not enough to pay my debt at least its lessen the burden. Because I can earn 100 dollars a month in good months online.

If I will going to do that then I guess I'm going to go crazy. The main reason is this. I spend five years of my life online for one reason. No job. This is the only way I make myself busy. Unlike others who don't do anything at all but drink and get depress. Me I prefer to spend time in internet hoping to find a way to earn money.
