Hey guys,

Siiting on the net for a couple of hours is fine. But how do you know if you have become an addict? The internet is not just India-Forums and Yahoo!. Theres myspace, xanga, aim, yahoo.. Without even knowing you can give somone where they can find you. So how do YOU know if your an Internet Addict?

1. Lying about how much time is spent online.
2. General decrease of physical activity and social life.
3. Neglecting obligations at home, work, or school to spend time online.
4. Spending too much money on computer equipment or Internet activities.
5. Feeling a constant desire to be online when they're away from the computer.
6. Going online to escape real world problems.
7. Disregarding the emotional or physical consequences of being in front of a computer all day.
8. Denial of the problem.


-----

1) How much of your time do you spend on the net axprmently. Of I-F? On yahoo/msn/aim?

2) Do you lie to your family members when they ask" How many hours were you on the computer for"?

3) Are becoming less social, and more chatty with people through net?

4) Do you not study as  hard, as you used to before you started going on net?

5) Has the internet interffered with your grades/school?

1) How much of your time do you spend on the net aproximately. Of I-F? On yahoo/msn/aim?

Ispend about 5-6 hours online everyday, on I-F and MSN....

2) Do you lie to your family members when they ask" How many hours were you on the computer for"?

I dont have to lie to them, as the computer is placed in a common area, and not in my room. Thus they can see me and are aware of how much time I spend online...

3) Are becoming less social, and more chatty with people through net?

No...I'm equally close with both my net-pals and my non-net pals....

4) Do you not study as hard, as you used to before you started going on net?

Actually, I used to spend more time, doing meaningless inane tasks, which were a waste of time. I now spend my time on the internet, using it to further my knowledge about everything from the latest TV shows to fundamentals of complex mathematics to surfing online tutorials to help me with PSP....

5) Has the internet interfered with your grades/school?

No, Although I spend majority of my time on the internet, i am quite regular with my work and am among the first 2 places in my college class...


Ummm...So...Am i an addict? Confused Confused Tongue
