I've read a lot about the increasingly-accepted notion that it is possible to be addicted to the internet. Spending hour after hour online, hopping around from one website to another. Has anyone here ever done that? How often? I'm just asking because all day yesterday I was online, for I don't know how many hours. And the thing is, it isn't the first time I have plastered my butt in front of my computer for hours at a time. I tend to make it an everyday thing when I a not working, and it is really starting to bother me. I don't do hardly any of the things I used to like to do.

<BR>What are your thoughts? Do you think it is bad to spend so much time online?

Gee thanks riddler. Of course, there again, I don't watch TV, so I get my soul entertainment from the net, music, concerts, parks, and ladies.

Wow, addicted to the internet? Sorry, that's kinda sad. I mean, I use it just about every day, but I don't sit there <!-- BBCode Start --><I>all</I><!-- BBCode End --> day using it. I have other things to do. I can't imagine sitting at the computer for hours and hours at a time.

In case any of you haven't noticed....my posts are usually early early morning because I am an insomniac. I would rather do this than watch infomercials on TV. Plus today is a rare case, my last day of my vacation, so I have to catch up on current events <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif">

For me it's a thing I love to do in addition to many other things I love to do. I do most of my postings at work because I don't have a computer at my Apt., or I post when I go over to my mom's. Mostly here from work tho <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

Its fine to spend some time on the net but not all the time . Its much better talking to friends or going to the cinema rather than spending all night on the net
