View Full Version : Am I an Addict?
I log in to the net at least twice a day! Early morning, I do almost 30 minutes then early evening I log about another 1-1/2 hrs. I check Geekvillage, Sitepoint, and other forums at least twice a day. Sometimes I feel I can't say no! When I say to myself that I won't login this morning, I would later find myself in Geekvillage ;) Anyway am I an addict? I am not taking legal weeds from CJ but... am I an addict?
:o I recently made geek/talk my home page
BUT I AM NOT ADDICTED :p

:eek: :eek: :eek:
If you think you're an addict, then I'm not even sure what I am. :eek:
I'm online at least 5 hours a day, sometimes 12 hours in a row! Then again, its all for business, but yeah, you're probably an addict. :D :)
Hehe, I love these smileys, :typing: and yep, that's me every day
I also haven't gone as far as making this my homepage, lol :)

well i'm 100% net addicted... look at it this way the only time i'm not online is when i'm sleeping and i only get 3 - 8 hrs sleep per day :)
doesn't help when develop my own anime/film sites + i admin my own forum + moderate at 2 other forums + hosting biz + learning php/mysql and recently starting regular paid contract support/sales work for the same place i moderate at :D
All of it fits nicely with each other making it my ideal situation - well besides having 48 hr days :rolleyes:

You are not even close to being an addict. :rolleyes:
I am at least 12H a day on the internet with probably over 18 and known to do a 36H to 48H runs without sleep.
I use 3 computers with a KVM switch and working on all of them at the same time :angel:
I am like this for over two years now :cool:
You are not addicted.
Log onto the internet a 6 am. First thing I do is check the 8 forums I read. Then I check email. Then I go back and check the forums because someone could have posted while I was looking at my mail. I am online all day working on search engine rankings and stuff. At least once an hour I check the forums. I leave work at 3 pm. Get home at 4 pm and am online until 10 pm checking the forums every hour, because there may be something I missed.
I think I need some help or at least 9 computers set to refresh the page every 2 minutes so I don't miss something. ;)

Well, the first thing I do when I get to my desk at work is go online and check my hitcounter. Then I surf alittle, check my ebay auctions, go to AMAZON.com, check the boards and see who has replied to my posts, check out new posts, etc...
Then I do the same thing AS SOON AS I get home. I use to surf and chat till the wee hours, but I don't anymore.
Also, I spend most of my time thinking of what I can do to improve my site.
But, my PC just went out and I dropped it off for service which will take maybe 4 - 5 days I guess. So, it's "weird" when I get home and can't log-on. But, I check my email through my cellphone.
But, I wouldn't say I'm an addict...............

I'm an addict, I think. As soon as I wake up and do my morning rituals and work out I come straight online and end up getting offline at about 6am and going to bed... I, of course, eat while I'm online. That's pretty pathetic.

"I, of course, eat while I'm online."
LOL! Join the club. :D

When I get my flat rate ADSL connection in about a month or so I'll probably be like most of you... Now I'm just going online for 10-15 minutes 5 times and one longer period too...
