    I don't consider myself addicted, because I have an on-going real life and, in average, I don't stay more than 5 hours daily on PC (except in some weekends and vacations when I have nothing better to do).

    BTW, I'm not sure that this "internet addicition disorder" really exists. I think I'm more inclining to agree with the opinion that:

    Not addicted. On the contrary, I would open a reflection about HOW Internet promotes human relationships that would be not so easy in the real life: I have some friend who lives abroad and far from I live, and Internet gives to us the possibility to share our feelings, ideas, moods... photos... etc in real time, much better and deeply than the traditional phone call. :)

    I am addicted to the Internet to a point. I have more virtual friends than real ones, but I have less virtual friends than work friends. That is because I go to work and when I come home I watch TV then go to sleep. When I wake up I go to work. Work friends are not really what I would call friends in the true sense of the word. The Internet Kills the pain of real life through :D

    I am not addicted, I use PC only when I am at home, but I could live without it, the problem is, present just does not allow it, in fact it will be only "worse". :)

    What is kind of funny and sad as well, that the most people consider it to be a problem, especially in China, where they brutally force children to be "cured". I ask why? Since when they return home, they have to use internet again?! Internet is like a bread, you can not live without it today. I do everything on the internet, watching movies (cinemas just suck), internet banking like paying bills, buying clothes or other stuff, except food, because it is not available yet. The idea of internet is to help people socialize more and increase their freetime for other activities, like I do not waste houres buying anything out, when I can do it mins.

    I am definitely addicted but I don't mind it.And I would call it one of the best sort of addiction.
    I've learned a lot of good things over the last few years.

    Not addicted.

    Addiction is a dependence on a behavior that a person is powerless to stop.

    I stop to go to the bathroom, I stop to eat, I stop to sleep. :)

    I am definitely not a maniac . Although I use them on daily bases , work with them a lot , I do prefer not to . Day1 to Day3 without Internet or computer would be some trouble , but Day4 - no problem , I'll be used to no-PC reality

    I'm honestly getting annoyed and fed up with this topic being brought up all the time on the news and such. They even have Internet Addiction Bootcamps. It's just retarded.

    I don't know what really defines addiction to anything. I'm certainly dependent on the Internet as my source of information. An information addict would probably be a better label for my personality.

    The rare times I lost the Internet connection due to computer/provider problems made me feel tetchy and anxious. I don't play computer games at all hence I can imagine that Internet exposure could be very negative depending on how much of one thing one does online. I had to intervene and limit the amount of gaming hours per week to my son, as it was definitely affecting his school performance.

    I do see the Internet as a great invention with more positive than negative aspects.

    Nope. As soon as the weather's nice I'll be outside fishing, planting, and enjoying a few brews while pickin' a little guitar. This is a winter sport for me.:D
