1) How much of your time do you spend on the net axprmently. Of I-F? On yahoo/msn/aim? I spend around 2-3 hrs on IF..msn and yahoo in total on weekdays...and around 3/4 hours on them on the weekend

2) Do you lie to your family members when they ask" How many hours were you on the computer for"? I am constantly asked wot i do on the computer all that time...but they know how long i spent on the computer..so i don't lie

3) Are becoming less social, and more chatty with people through net?  Not really..but then in a way i am...i like spending time at home..i'm either on the computer or watching tv...but then i still do go out now and again
 
4) Do you not study as  hard, as you used to before you started going on net? YeaEmbarrassed..i find the computer a big distraction..and so my studying levels have fallen a bit

5) Has the internet interffered with your grades/school? Not really..no

1) How much of your time do you spend on the net axprmently. Of I-F? On yahoo/msn/aim? The computer is on all day, but I am not always there or surfing the net - but if you asked whether I am addicted to IF, the answer would be a resounding YES!LOL

2) Do you lie to your family members when they ask" How many hours were you on the computer for"? I am living on campus, so my parents aren't here to ask such questions - so there is no need for me to lie. And even when I am at home, the comp is based in a common area, so they know how long I am on for...but maybe not what I am doingWink

3) Are becoming less social, and more chatty with people through net?  Well, I have certainly made a ot more friends on the net, but I still keep in touch with my friends from school/uni and because I live on campus, there is always the opportunity to mingle with friends and to enjoy a social life. But I am a reserved person as such anyway, so I spend my social life doing the things that I want to do - be that hanging out with a small group of friends or chatting to my new friends online.
 
4) Do you not study as  hard, as you used to before you started going on net? Well, I have a low boredom threshold anyway, and find it very easy to be distracted, even if there is nothing to be distracted by! I get distracted by my own thoughts, so the net is hardly at faultLOL

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.
Nope.My computer is in the living room in front of my whole family.LOL
2. General decrease of physical activity and social life.
I am  of the little lazy.So after college or classes i usually like staying at home and chilling.Mumbai isnt such a place where you feel like taking fresh.Its all polluted and wheezing problem has just got worse.LOLOf course the movies dinner outings and shopping i do i make only at Ac malls.LOL
3. Neglecting obligations at home, work, or school to spend time online.
No my loggin time varies according to the work i have.During holidays its for hours and during exams hardly and time but id o make it a point to log in.
4. Spending too much money on computer equipment or Internet activities.
Now this one i dont do.IF is just enough for me.Embarrassed
5. Feeling a constant desire to be online when they're away from the computer.
Yeah that is when im listening to a crappy lecture on undervelopment and its causes in my eco class.LOLI keep dream  about my fav hero.LOL
usually when i am to a place on a long holiday with no comp in sight i feel a longing but if im enjoying myself then theres no problem.(though personally sometimes i wish i had a laptop..Tongue)
6. Going online to escape real world problems.
Ultimately i have to face my probs but i do come on the net to relax and feel relaxed.Embarrassed
7. Disregarding the emotional or physical consequences of being in front of a computer all day.
Dont want to think about it.Ler me searc for some good points.LOL
8. Denial of the problem.
Think so LOLi actually im relatively addicted.according to some people i am and acording tpo others i might be that much.I dont waste my time chatting on msn.its only if and i have learnt a lot here though my parants wont believe that.LOLAnd yeah personally i think i am not but maybe this is what people call self denial LOL
