Yes I believe I can. Internet is here for us to "connect" to the world. Some use it to fill boring moments,to enjoy,to greet and communicate with friends,etc. It didnt exist ages ago but people still live. Unless you make a living out of the internet, then i guess you can live without it. Being unable to live without internet is just a state of mind..it depends which state are you?

If it wouldn't have been invented then I'd too not live without it. Now that it has been, I can't live without it. :P

If internet was never invented then yes, but that'll just make everyone move more slower than expected. If you have no choice to choose for your life for your future or the life of internet then yes, too much exposure to internet gives a big friggin' headache. If suddenly the world goes to total panick because of an unknown virus causing more than half of the internet to malfunction and corrupt then yes, because since i cannot get what i need from internet, guess i have to spare with the ones i just have. If everything or mostly can be done by internet, then no... ahh, technology, can't get most of it, can't get enough of it.

Although I need the internet for work..and enjoy using the internet..I dont think it's so necessary for me that I could not survive without it..I love having access to it but I also like turning it off:)+

Yes. i can live without the Internet. i can live without a lot of things. but i really do not want to. I would not give that up. If i have something that will make me leave the Internet because it is very important to me. yes. i will be able to leave the Internet for a month, and even for more. it always depends on my priorities.

It will be a miserable life without internet.I could still survive as it's not the oxygen of my life ,but I'd definitely have to make an effort by engaging myself in something interesting like watching a movie everyday or spending more time with my friends.Why internet is so addictive is perhaps because we can talk to so many people at the same time and we don't even have to worry about dressing up.Again,having an encyclopedia is as good as having a genie( well almost ) and it's very hard to do away with it.

There is no way that I could live without the internet. I am so addicted to it and would be completely lost without it. LOL I would miss myLot a lot and my online friends as well as being able to shop online and do other things online. The internet was the best creation I think ever made. I have heard that they are trying to remake the internet better and safer. It will be interesting to see how they do that and if it actually works. I love emailing, chatting online, shopping, myLot and listening to music and hopefully soon start selling some things.

Certainly I can. But if you ask me, life would be so very unbearable without the internet. It has become something I have grown so comfortable with that I would probably feel lost and uncomfortable without.

I first had the internet with I was fourteen, at which time I had it for 5 years before I moved here to Kentucky. Once moved, I did not have the internet for 3 years and lived without it and never really gave much thought about it til I started my own business. I have now only had the internet back for going on 3 years and through that time, no matter what I have been doing online, I suffer from bouts of getting bored of it. So even though I enjoy coming here and am one of the addicted, I could rightly live without the internet for a period of time. It don't run my life and will never run my life.
