Yes I think and I feel I am addicted to the internet. It just feels like what i surfed in a particular day, is not always enough that in order to pacify my impulse is that i need to increase my online hours... when i was in college, i once proposed a thesis named: Level of Internet Addiction among students of our school. but I can not continue on that work because most of the symptoms also fits to me at some point. it is just hard figuring out why your addicted.

I think I am... I can't live a day without surfing and checking all of my accounts in facebook, blogging sites and other social networking sites... I'm super addicted. I admit it.

I am somewhat addicted. I spend a lot of time during the day doing research for articles I write or promoting my work, but I don't really spend much time socializing. There just isn't a lot to do in this small town so I'm on here sometimes just because I'm bored! I spend very little time online when the family is home, though, so I guess I'm not totally addicted.

Addiction is a strong word I think. I'd say I'm not coz I can stay off the internet when I want to. But it's like part of my daily life now so tha's why I go online everyday.

Cant say if im internet addict even if i spend sometimes a whole day surfing net because im using it to earn money, a home based job and not for any other unnecessary things because if i have other good higher earning work, mostly likely i will only spent an hour or two of surfing net for my research and do it every other day.
