Addicted to the Internet?


What's the first thing I do when I get home after a day outside the house and outside the office? I log on to the net, check my e-mails, and browse some blogs and other websites. It's like I feel disconnected from the world when a day goes by without me checking my e-mail once.

It's the same when I am on holiday. I have been to a couple of places where Internet access was limited, so I could only check my e-mail once in a while. It annoyed me! It's like I didn't know what to do with myself when I was indoors.

I remember one holiday where, after a couple of Internet-free weeks, my sister and I went to a relative's place who did have an Internet connection....and it was like we had found a pot of gold or something! We were so happy, we even argued about who got to log on first!

Am I addicted to the Internet?

well, going online is the first thing i do when i come back from work and when i wake up on weekends. I always thought thats just pathetic... but not after i read ur post.... hehe(kidding)

well, if i'm away having good time, i'm just fine being offline (or maybe it just happens that this happens in leb where it takes forever to open a webpage... hmmm yes maybe)

anyways, maybe u r addicted, but ur not alone...

Here we are, back from a walk around the park behind J's house in Berlin, and the first thing that I do is log on!

It's so an integral part of my life here that I stopped questioning my addiction a long long time ago.

Just confirming that I too am 'addicted to the internet'.

I'm on it first thing in the morning, last thing at night, and pretty much all day in between!

OK...Phew...I am so glad to see I am not the only one!

What did people do before the Internet?

Actually, I remember the first time I discovered e-mail...and the time I received my first e-mail. I was so amazed! E-mail is the best invention EVER!
