I don’t think so no. I have to go on every night even if I have nothing to do on it or anyone to talk to lol. I guess it’s a bad habit.

I could live without everything but it just won't be the same, actually my life would be less complicated. But the Internet is an excellent invention and I'll never turn back now that I have experienced it.

No it's very difficult to live life without internet. Sometimes when my ISP breaks down, I feel really difficult for the period it's off. Acutally we have remodelled our life in such a way where staying in touch with the rest of the world is a way of life. Not only that moreover whenever you need some info on something you rush to your PC for the net.

can i live without the internet? of course! definitely! assuredly! precisely! inesacapably! even if the internet will be gone, i would still want to live, and live life to the fullest just like what philosopher Albert Camus said. the internet is just an invention that makes life a lot easier for us humans, but it is not LIFE itself, you know what i mean? i know i will get sad and frustrated when time comes for the internet to say bye-bye because in here i've discovered so many things, not only with regards to making money, lol, and i don't even want to think about it, but...i am sure it will be for a reason and for a good purpose which God alone knows. so, when that time comes, like that famous line which goes: "the show must go on." life must go on.

There are billions of people living without interest and hence why not I. If you have attached a lot of importance then it is difficult to live without it. If your profession does not involve internet, then one can live without internet.

I could if I had to. I have before. It would probably give me more time for other things, but I have it so I intend to use it. I'd really miss it if I lost access to it for some reason.

I would definitely have trouble living without the Internet, but would have to learn to adapt, I guess. I'm very spoiled by it now.

I know we could live without it, but it makes things so much quicker and more convenient. When my attorney has something to tell me concerning my case or I have something to ask her, it's really easy to just send a quick email. That way we don't have to try to catch each other on the phone when we're both free. I also pay my bill thru my online bank account. It's quick and not time consuming like writing checks. Then there is chatting. I just don't like using the phone, but I love message boards for some reason.

I can live without internet . I will go back to print media and books . Due to availablity , I have become somewhat dependent on it . But if it is withdrawn somehow I will not go crazy . There are many reasons . One among them is that so far I have not been able to utilise productively to the extent I wished to .Secondly , the cost of internet has not yet fallen to become easily affordable . So, if it is withdrawn , perhaps the gap will be compensated by other amenities

Gr8 research work and a very expected answer indeed.... That is a real gr8 example of internet's advantages and disadvantages. + said them in a very gr8 manner too... Thanks a lot for giving such a informative response.

Thanks Zahir , for your positive gesture towards my incapacity to utilise something so useful like internet . In fact till now the internet connection at my home is underutilised and has remained a luxury. Time and money constraint will always be a hindrance to me in this respect . I expected to utilise it both as a means to gain useful knowledge and information on one hand and a means to utilise my and my wife's free time to earn some extra cash . Extra cash is a crying need for me given the growing expenditure vis-a-vis the constant low income.

why not? maybe in my country we are busy with work and we seldom meet up with friends unless during weekends, but for weekdays, online chatting is the most convinient way to stay in touch with friends.
