Default INTERNET addiction

The Internet is so accessible, 24 hours a day it's there and provides me with instant entertainment in the comfort of my own home. It's no surprise that I've therefore become addicted to it. I've been on the computer for 10 hours now, and it's 4 am.

I think unlimited internet is a problem for me. I should probably cancel it.

Don't see anymore posts but I like to comment on this forum. I used to be so active here but found that I was getting really addicted to it and had to make sure all my on-line friends got pics etc. I would be on for two plus hours. I realized it had become a real problem for me. I love the forum but like anything too much of a good thing is not healthy.
I still feel this is the best place for help and it really worked for me when I needed it. I thing a wonderful job has been done here but like anything, it can become an addiction. So for all the friends here...I have thought of you but I just want to come back a little at a time...............Hugs; Dee (missbelle)

Hi Dee,

I relate to what you are saying. This is my favorite website. I get a lot of support here and I try to support others, too. I don't watch much tv so I don't feel concerned about my internet usage, although I find I read less despite that being a passion of mine. Take care xo

Red face Re: INTERNET addiction

Have never been a reader. But have been an internet user since they became popular. Was on line for the forums at braintalk before they went bad. Now am a member of neurotalk but it is so small found myself needing more support.
So that is when I really restarted back up her at psych central.
I am bipolar so that is where I am posting for the most part.

I have been online for 6+ hours now. I am suppose to be up in 2 hours and have yet to even sleep. I don't have cable tv and read only a little bit. Mostly on my kindle. I have been spending a lot of time playing the arcade games on this site and watching YouTube videos.

How are things going? Is being online that much problematic in your life?

Red face Re: INTERNET addiction

Hubby has been gone for the week, back on tuesday.
I have been on here for hours!
I post to many different web sites forums face book email, checking rechecking see if any one responds.
I am like a 2 year old.....
sigh

I worked saturday too this week so time has flown by since he has been gone. I am off tomorrow. Will have brunch at the diner then I have nothing else planned.
My dirty house needs attention, but actually the yard screams for attention.
All I can say is I better not spend the whole day on line.
bizi who is blurry eyed from being on line so long and not blinking.....

I super relate to this, haha. I don't even want to count up the hours I'm online per day. It's like a coping mechanism, because it doesn't require much thought. My OCD loves when I start putting extra thought into things (like reading books, writing, working on anything, etc) so I scroll through image sites like Tumblr and Instagram to make it shut up for a minute :I

Internet addiction can be bad for your health. I would suggest you to limit its use.
