Default Re: INTERNET addiction

Ever since I had access to the internet from home I think it became an addiction for me too. It really helps me feel better, because I live in an area that I can't seem to find people with similar problems that I have. In the past when I was a teen I was onthe internet for so many hours a day. Yeah rather unhealthy, nowadays I take breaks and read some books.

Smile Re: INTERNET addiction

I do 30 minutes of exercises and try to practice my new banjo ukulele twice a day which is less time for the internet. I will go to the gym this morning to row on the machine hoping for 20 minutes. We shall see.
I am spending less time on the internet.

Unhappy Re: INTERNET addiction

Alcohol
internet
food
self sex
I am bipolar 1

abilify is not working for me.
am already gaining weight.
A friend of mine said I should try lithium.
my aunt took this and has tremors so bad and it killed her thyroid.

Having said this all Anti psychotics run this risk.
My therapist doesn't think I am hypomanic. She thinks this is me not dealing with my addictions.
she could be right.

which came first? the hypomania or the addictions?

Default Re: INTERNET addiction

When I first got my computer and online service in 1994, the first day I got it, I met this man who persisted in trying to bed me. I was married and tried over and over to stop associating with him online and then in person, but I became addicted to him and my computer instead. I did not give in to him, but the computer made it impossible to sever all ties with him either.

Finally, a few months ago, I was able to sever all ties with him. It was really hard, but I did it.

Now, though, I still find that I am addicted to my computer. I check and recheck to see if anyone has answered a post or written an email to me or whatever. I play games too, but no violent ones. Just brain teasers that help with memory and solitaire. I can control my urges to do those, but I cannot seem to get a handle on doing what I should do first thing in the mornings sometimes before I log on.

Today, I knew what I needed to do. I did some of it, then I logged on. I still did not clean my pet's cage, which I know I am supposed to do on Saturdays. It is so much easier to log on, than to do chores!

So, here I am, stinky Guinea Pig cage and all....

Well, I shamed myself into cleaning my pet's cage by writing the above. None the less, I just had to come here and tell all of you about it! #@Y(!)*&@_^)#$^(!

I took one day off from my computer this week. It was kind of freeing.

Oh my gosh, I’ve got this problem.

Even though I was tired, sick, and have had a headache the last two days, I’ve been constantly on the internet. Today I’ve barely cared to eat even, and eating is usually important.

I love forums and Facebook. It is getting worse lately.
I’m going to admit this to my new therapist tomorrow.
