Right now, I am very addicted to it, because I am looking for a job. In my regular life, when I am gainfully employeed, I spend a lot of my time outdoors or if it's cold, I like to shop. I take my 13, 9 and 5 year old with me to the mall and we make a day of it. I try not to make the computer my life. I use it to research and to learn about things that interest me. I like mylot, so I come here a lot. I use it to help my brother research whatever book he may be working on. I use it for my activist activities. Other than that, I prefer human contact. I will go to a bar with my brother and have a few drinks while socializing with guys who do not stand a chance. I'm happily married. It's fun, though and it makes me feel young. No, I would prefer to stay away from my PC. Not because of the computer, itself, but because of the lack of human interaction.

I love computers I have 3 of them set up and I am always using them for school or hosting my web service and images for my ebay auctions. I am a soon to be software engineer and love to program and fiddle with a lot of different technologies. I also like to do some video stuff and 3D graphics. There is so much stuff I like to do on the computer so I am on it a lot.

I love fiddling around on the pc. Right now I have three windows open. I tend to multi-task. Today I had to come into the computer room for something that I left on my desk and hubby caught me in here. He questioned me as to what I was doing. Not that it was any of his business, but I know he doesn't like it that I spend so much time on MyLot, Gather and other sites. IT has become very addictive. But, I can stay away....sometimes....but not for long most times. LOL.

I have plenty of other things that I have to do. I love to spend a couple of hours socializing here at mylot, but otherwise I rarely use it. Except to do books for the ranch.

I have so many things to do that it isn't funny. I have to literally force myself to go to bed sometimes...or go attend to my housework or schoolwork. Mostly work. MyLot is my playtime, but 8 out of 10 times that I'm here, I'm also multitasking in other windows.

I am extremely addicted to my computer. If it weren't for my college studies, I would be on my computer 24 hours a day.

1. I have 2 computers and both are busy. 2. I use the computers for my business invoicing. 3. I use it for internet. 4. My wife and son use the other computer. I am not addicted, but it is very essential.

No, not really. I stay long hours in front of my pc but I make sure that I don't stay that much coz' I also have other stuffs to do. But when I have projects or deadlines, well that's I can't leave my computer. I sometimes usually eat and sleep in front of it, hehe.

I earn my living online so my working day (which is often ridiculously long) is spent on the PC but I also spend far too much of my free time on it as well. Mainly gambling I have to say which makes it even worse! Or I'm on here of course - this is one of the few things I do in my own time that doesn't actually cost me money!

Thankfully, I have other things to always pull me away from my addictions. Like my family and especially my daughter. She keeps me busy at all times.
