How long is too long when it comes to being online?

Personally, back in my extreme online gaming days I approached the 3 day mark. I've done research papers on the subject and found plenty of cases where people have actually died from week long benders. But now, I have a kid to look after and I start to wonder at what point does it become considered unhealthy? I've been trying to find ways to make money online and I can spend the entire day online, but I feel like I'm missing out on spending time with the people that I don't need a keyboard to interact with.

I can easily spend 4 hours online, but have to remind myself to get up and go do something! My spouse could spend the whole weekend online if I let him. I have to pry him off the chair and remind him he has actual people in the house. If I really wanted attention I suppose I could paint "DOOM" on my chest or something to make him interested.
