Do you mean addiction to the internet?

As in spending long hours online playing internet games

and chatrooms and surfing the web?

If that is the case, I admit I spend long hours online.

Some of it is spent working. Once I get into playing

online games, I find it hard to log off, simply because

it is all about getting to the next level. Most sites store

your scores and if you log off in the middle of a game

then your ratings do not get recorded, and you might

have actually passed a particular level.

If I am unable to get online, because my computer is

not working, I get very anxious. To me the internet is

my life line. The means by which I send and receive

emails to friends and family. The computer and Internet

are the tools by which we are able to do most things.

I guess this partly explains why we spend so much time

online. I am not addicted. . I agree some people are

addicted in that they arrange their lives around the pc.

I saw on the tv recently that some parents have become

so desperate because their children, spend anything up to

as in the case of a particular teenager 20 hours a day,

playing games. He even could not even bear to go to

the toilet so he arranged a convenient method in his room.

That is what you call addiction. I understand there is a place

somewhere in Holland that one can go to for help.

One piece of advice is, every hour get up and take a walk.

Stretch your legs and rest your eyes.

I see nothing wrong with working from home, shopping online.paying bills online and anything else people wish to do.
I do all of these. It is the way things are done today.
We all lead busy life styles, trust me there is nothing worse than having to stand in a long
que at the end of a long day. What is wrong with letting someone else pick your shopping
off the shelves, pack it, take it into the delivery van, while you sit back and relax until it is delivered
to your door?

Also some people live too far away from the main shops,some are elderly and some may be sick.
The internet makes life so much easier. You can now buy postage stamps online. Now that
is cool!!!

The banks even prefer us to do certain things online.
The internet is here to stay.
