    I don't know if I call what I have addiction, but I browse 6-7 boards a day at work. I get around [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    Once in a while, I'll come into work on a Saturday to try & catch up, but then I'd be browsing again [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

    I think it is when your habit of browsing the internet becomes the center of your life. All you want to do is spend time on the computer in chat rooms or downloading or whatever. Social interaction falls by the wayside because you're "plugged in."

    Back when I was in high school and the whole thing was new I was on the net all the time. Now I'm on during the day to pass time at work (I hit this board, one on D&D, and one on Star Trek) and I'll make long distance calls on it at night or download a few things, but in the evening I really only write. I'd say using the internet as a past-time is healthy and normal, but using it as a lifestyle is the sign of an addict.

    I can quit anytime I want. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Seriously, I don't think the Internet is addicting. When you don't have web access (Heaven forbid!) you just learn to live without it. When you're working 60 or 70-hour weeks and you don't have time to check Forums, you just don't do it.

    I'd say I'm an Internet addict. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] As soon as I get home from school the first thing I do is go on the Internet. Whenever I'm bored I go on and browse message boards and sports sites. Having a cable modem is why I'm on so much. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    Then why do you average over 4 posts per day!

    If I had a cable modem I'd be on a lot less! The only reason I am on so long sometimes is because it takes me long to do things. But I'd always be on at night to talk to people on aim [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Well, I have almost no choice to be online, LOL.

    I mod at three forums, and I admin three forums. I run two very demanding websites.

    I catch a lot of my friends on here so we can catch up on things we don't get to do during the day.

    Yes, I'm addicted. LOL. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
    I'm one of those crazies on your block.

    Nah for real, I get bored on here real fast, I'd just leave songs to download and do something else. Now whether that something else would be more productive is undetermined [img]smilies/bounce.gif[/img]

    Oh yeah, and for those of you that wonder why I'm ALWAYS on AIM, well, I live on a campus that has Ethernet free in every dorm room, so I'm pretty much always online as long as my computer is plugged in.

    I wish I would've been here when Napster was still around, but nooo, back then I had to dial up if I wanted to download anything.
