Internet Addiction

Think you might be addicted to the internet?   This website poses questions for you to consider.  I KNOW I am addicted to the internet. And I like it that way. LOL.


Picture 1
Yes.

Picture 2
I don't even try to cut back.  FULL THROTTLE.

Picture 3
Sure!

Picture 4
Actually my JOB interferes with my internet activity.

Picture 5
Nope.  Why bother lying.

Picture 6
There are a million things to be depressed about.  Why single out the internet?

Picture 7
I make time for both, plus tv, shopping, eating, drinking, reading, complaining, etc.  I do it all.

Picture 8
This looks and sounds like HELL to me.  PASS.

Picture 9
YAWN.

Picture 10
Christ.  Now I am wondering if I have a problem.  Oh, who cares.

Picture 11
BARF.

Picture 12
BARF BARF BARF.

Well, I have zero interest in curbing my internet usage.  My job has me on the computer all day, and I kind of like it that way (I am bored out of my mind most times at work, so THANK GAWD FOR THE INTERNET.  I have about 10 tabs open at all times while I do my job and simultaneously monitor THE WORLD!). 

I am without a computer this week while on vacation [I'll get back to you and your comments when I return], and my hands are shaking just thinking about that.  I'll live.  But I'll miss it. 

If you need help cutting back, I guess you could contact these folks.  Or just CUT BACK. Christ, does there really have to be an intervention center for this kind of thing?!  Fertheloveofgawd.

I've been addicted to computers since BEFORE the internet.

Dusty old paper backs help.

I was a T.V. baby, and now Yes, I am a lap top lover! Addictions are good.
And we get smarter everyday, too.

Cheers!

I have a suspicion that the clientele at the "internet/gaming addiction center" wouldn't be quite that attractive.

Yelena R. said...

Hahaha, I might have a slight internet addiction, but I have to say that this place has an addiction to stock photography...how cheesy can you get?

WendyB said...

I don't want to connect with others if I have to wear knit hats to do it.

sherri said...

"heavensfield?!" really "HEAVENSFIELD?", worst name for a rehab ever. and I hope I never connect with that creepy ashton kutchner lookalike with his bill cosby sweater all "here blow this outta my hands whydon'tcha?"
and yes, I have a serious internet addiction.

Caroline said...

Here's my thought...anyone that blogs is addicted to the internet. And if you say your not...your lying. :) And yes...I am totally addicted! Hey, isn't admittance the first step???

Katie said...

deal with life's ups and downs and he's wearing a 69 shirt. that's brilliant or i'm a perv, or both.

hi5 internetaholics!

creative kerfuffle said...

i spend way too much time on the internet doing unproductive things and yes, i do get a certain eupohoria out of it. also, i probably interact more w/ my internet friends than real life friends. of course part of that also has to do w/ the fact that i have two kids hanging out here all summer too. i can't believe there is actually a break the addiction service for the internet though. omg. really?

Char said...

oh good grief people (LOL). i suppose they will make us hold hands and sing around a campfire.

i suppose there are folks that don't get the difference between real and computer world...but...

Lorena said...

Too funny.
I laughed soo much reading your answers to the questions.. specially how the job interferes with the internet.

Down and Out Chic said...

Missy said...

I think I may have a problem!

Christiejolu said...

SabinePsynopsis said...

Internet addicts united... I'm facing 2 weeks without the net and with 'real' people and my man tells me I will be fine - But will I? Maybe I should sign up for Heavensfield... yay!

SabinePsynopsis said...

...Plus I get really bored doing only one media thingy; but I guess that's a bad sign too.

ticklishfromadistance said...

No twelve step program for me. I am staying. xoxoxox

Bombchell said...

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA I love your responses. Mine were bout 80% the same.

Dancing Branflake said...

Happy being where ever you are! I'll miss you but don't worry about the other blogs. Just visit mine! haha just kidding. But really, who else will give you your dose of daily bran?

blueviolet said...

Cut back? That's preposterous!

Jessica said...

Please, I enjoy and embrace my addiction. My internet friends are awesome and at work on the night shift at a hotel yeah the internet saves me from going nuts and or falling asleep. I don't need help I need to meet the guy I met online and get some uh huh.

naughty, naughty.

Lannie said...

Kaz said...

I don't even miss out on the internet when I'm on holiday...I take the iPhone. That's why I got it...so I can get my fix any time I want

I figure I'd rather be addicted to the internet than something like meth

Miss Caitlin S. said...

hahah I hear you- I Love my internet too and would sooner die than be without it. But i do see how this can be helpful for some people!!! :) Have fun on vacation!

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Internet addicts - woohoo!

But seriously, how do we look up directions, check email, shop, and research travel and restaurants otherwise?

Have a great vacation dear!

libbeh ♥ said...

Love this post.. seriously. It couldn't come at a better time too! Now off to share this with the bf, who apparently thinks that I'm addicted to the internet. Psssh... whatever. Glad to know that I'm not alone :)

Mrsblogalot said...

No problem that I can see.

UR'L come back now...ya hear?

The Savage said...

It's not like it's crack or meth... but I did grind a computer into powder once and snorted it... oh man.. talk about a high....

tulpen said...

I am currently on vacation. Wondering how I'll sneak in a blog post or two. Commenting from my phone at the moment. Nope. I don't have a problem.

Krystal said...

haha yes...the internet should shut down for one day a week i think

Georgina Dollface said...

But the internet lets me do so many things at once, just like you said! I can complain and whine and shop and write and obsess over my bank balance and stalk old boyfriends on FB and rid our post-apocalyptic world of Zombies SIMULTANEOUSLY....why would I need to give that up? - G

Alisa said...

I need to go to this place for the sake of my children. My husband need to come too! We are both on the computer way too much.

My poor ignored children!

SabinePsynopsis said...

From one addict to the next: I left you a little award in my post today.
Hope you are enjoying your holidays WITHOUT internet! xoxo

Kitty Stampede said...

i'm so far gone, it's insane. there is no climbing up no hole and i don't know if it's possible to hit rock bottom. it could worse, as in the game WOW.

i hope you are having the best rocking vacation ever!!! You are missed!!! :)

Stacy Conner said...

I love this post everyday (even though I am commenting from my "work" blog). Have to say, since becoming my own boss, I am even more addicted. And now the BF and I got the iPhone 4, my addiction is mobile.

Hope you are having a FABULOUS vacation and have plenty of Xanax or Vodka (or both) for the flights. :)

Kristine said...

I keep patting myself on the back that I don't watch as much television as I used to and then I realize I spend all my time on the internet instead.
hope you are having an amazing vacation!!

alissa said...
