Ok friends, i'd started a similar discussion on cellphones sometime back and everyone (including me) really enjoyed it a lot. So, here goes one about Internet. Tell me what is internet for you ? Is it a neccessity i.e; you just work/pay bills/check emails etc on it ? Or is it an addiction i.e; you are sooo obssesed w/t being online all the time (As much as u can) and be it chatting/mylotting/orkuting etc etc.. online ? For me.. it is surely an addiction. I'm online all day at work, then as soon as i come home the first thing i do is turn on my PC and stay online till late night. I'm sooo addicted. Do you feel the same/otherwise ?

I think it is an addiction too. Or maybe its just something we enjoy doing and getting paid for it makes it more inviting.

To me its both. But I think Im more addicted than a necessity. I do my grocery shopping through the internet, I did all my Christmas shopping through the internet, I run an online business through the internet, but I also love to just surf and Im addicted to checking my email about every hour. I went on vacation for 10 days and I didnt miss it, but got back into the habit right away. Thanks for the topic!

I am addicted to the internet. I have spent so many time on the computer that I hardly go outside anymore.
