I think I am addicted to the internet because of all the stuff I am doing on here. I write and make my own website on something I love and I believe that's why I am addicted to it. I tend to read books less and spending less time on other things too but I regard the internet as a hobby, so I have no plans on cutting the usage of it so far. I think I will focus doing some other real activities when I get all my projects worked out here.

Addiction is not good in what ever form it is! So one has to check out that by stoping the things which he or she is doing since a long time to get the detatched feeling or to balance the feeling regarding! Well I like to be on internet and I am used to spend my time after office hours!But if it is not possible due to any reason then i will have no problem! I have faced such situation and it is happening still... To be aware about any kind of addicted thing from starting is the main thing! Just follow it and save you from addiction!

I agree I am addicted also. I have to go online at least once a day if not more then that.

I'm addicted. Although I'm not the worst and I can come off, but I don't think people should kick it unless it becomes an issue. Such as those who spend all day using it and forget about the real world :) ~Joey

Yes the Internet is very addicting. I have no problem in admitting that I am in truth addicted to it. I am not making light of it as it can lead to serious problems. In fact, I think it played a role in the breakup of my marriage. In terms of fixing this adiction, I really don't know. Getting very busy with other things is really the only thing I can think of. cheers,

Is this internet addiction causing any trouble in your life. As long as it is not troubling in any way just continue this addiction. To overcome any addiction it is very simple. Use your will power to over come.

The only way to cure your addiction is to sell your computer away, LOL. Seriously, I was also in some kind of euphoria when I first have my computer months ago. I was tireless from sunrise to sunset gluing myself in front of the computer However, I'm starting to lay low for several weeks already. There are too many things to do in my real life and can only manage to stay online for a few hours. Maybe, you should start looking for other activities other than hooking up with your computer.
