No, I'm not by that definition. I don't *think* I spend that much time online.
16 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 6/11/04 - 2:42:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes. I also experience withdrawal symptoms. I get headaches, become cranky, and suffer from depression. I have to be online.
16 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 6/11/04 - 2:45:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oh please I'm on at least four times that.
16 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 6/11/04 - 2:45:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
(Okay, maybe not that much.)
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 8/18/04 - 3:34:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes. for the past 8 weeks(since school eneded) i spent about 10 hours a day...thats 70 hours a week....scary...i wake up(at lunch) and go on till at least midnight...usely longer...so i guess more then 70
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 8/25/05 - 9:28:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm about 40 hours a week. Plus 35.5 at work. And I spend about 56 hours sleeping (8 hrs. a night). That leaves me 26.5 hours a week for other stuff. I think I have a problem.
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 8/26/05 - 2:34:46 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, I probably spend more time online than that and I am always drawn to it.
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 8/26/05 - 2:38:50 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, actually I'm a Sims 2 addict...
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 8/26/05 - 2:45:30 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'm online at least 70 hours a week, often much more, so I guess I would qualify.
But on the other hand; I've CHOSEN to live here instead of in RL. Of my own free will, because for various reasons RL has little to offer me.

So I wouldn't label myself an addict.

Its sad, but yes Q_Q
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 2/18/07 - 2:02:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm not on for 38 hours a week, but probably pretty close.
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 2/18/07 - 2:11:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah....
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 2/18/07 - 3:23:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
Maybe 20-30 hours per week?
My parents still say it's too much
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 2/18/07 - 3:23:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
no way near that much
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 2/18/07 - 3:31:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
I also have an excuse...I'm going to college and also have an online class. On top of that, I am close to being an internet addict.
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 2/18/07 - 3:33:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
I already know I'm addicted.
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 2/18/07 - 3:34:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
I spend about 5 hours on the computer every day. it isn't an addiction. I just don't have much else to do.
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 2/18/07 - 3:37:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
Including the time at work, easily.
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 2/18/07 - 3:38:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
Lord no.
38 hours? That must be horrible. I use the internet in moderation!
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 2/18/07 - 3:40:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
I honestly have no idea, I've never timed how long I'm online for.
Maybe I should.
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 2/18/07 - 4:21:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
Perhaps borderline.
But that's not because I'm addicted, it's because I have too much free time.
I can leave it easily if I have something better to do.
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 2/18/07 - 4:27:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
No way. Since I'm not on a computer at work and I work 40 hours a week theres no way I could spend that much time online. Although when I was working on a computer 90% of the time it was job related and not just screwing around on the internet. So that couldn't count towards addiction hours.
13 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 2/22/07 - 5:10:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
around that, hehe, im an addict

Oh, same here. Real life sucks--the internet's SO much better. Yeah, I know I lack a "social life," but I don't really care. I'm happy with being addicted to the internet.

I'm far above addicted I guess..... WOOT for me!
