Are You Internet Dependant?

Posted on August 6, 2011 by kulichik

Have you ever wanted just to check your mail staying at the computer all night long instead?  That's how a disease of the new generation is born. Internet has become an essential part of our lives. We use one click to send letters to somebody who is 1000 kilometers away from us, watch new movies, read literature which can not always be found in a library and talk to people whom we have never seen before. 

Across the network:


Over 2 million people are using Internet today. According to prognosis, amount of net surfers is doubled worldwide every year.

Psychologists are studying the new phenomenon of Internet dependence which exists alongside with alcoholism, drug addiction and propensity for gambling.

    I could show her the wonderland of Pampa (Texas) and the beauty of the Panhandle if she’ll accompany me! ;-)

  3. Internet is the best tool if you know how to use it.

    And us, wasting time on englishrussia

      Heh, beat me to it. Though I just finished graveling my front drive and filling a garden bed with planting soil. So my day hasn’t been totally wasted at this point.

    • L.S.Zlatopolsky says:

      Not such a bad place to waste time. I’ve learned a lot here.

    They’re only dependent because what’s going on out there is more entertaining than their real life.

    I won’t sign up for any of the social networking programs like facebook. For one, I just don’t need, nor want it in my life.

    Secondly, I want to maintain at least a little bit of privacy.

    Plus, I don’t need something else to take up even more time.

    I’ve made a conscious decision to not spend time on the internet. See? Anybody can do it.

    Oh yeah, people that get addicted to stuff, have addictive personalities. If not the internet, it’d be something else. I wouldn’t be surprised if they were addicted to something else in addition to the net.

    • cockatrice says:

      I wish the Internet existed during my teenage years. Two of my friends would have wasted their life on the internet instead of mostly getting wasted. Your statement about addictive personalities is pretty spot on.

    • OLUT says:

      You can use Facebook and keep privacy, just don’t use your real name or info. I don’t use their games or apps; don’t let people tag photos of me. One can set privacy very high or very low. (I don’t mean OMG YOU SHOULD GET A FB!!!, just saying it can be done without giving away every bit of privacy you have.)

    • Chris says:

      You’ve made a conscious decision to not spend time on the internet… How are you commenting on an internet site again?

      yet, you’ve posted here…hypocrite much?

    it is not more entertaining than their real life. it is just they don’t know how to provide themselves entertainement. they are too used to be served with free incoming entertainement. and for the first time in their life they have to search for entertainement via internet. and the adrenaline dose for the search overpass the entertainement. that is why they spend so much time on it.

    i have one advice. you will never have as much fun in front of a screen, as in front of a open, sea/cliff/girl/city/wathever’sentertain you irl (in real life)

    should we lol? (sarcastic)

  8. DouglasU says:

    sometimes I forget to eat and sleep…..the computer can actually kill you….lol

  9. Musa says:

    I don’t feel guilty.

  10. OLUT says:

    The photos are really cool! When I wasn’t spending all my time on the internet (lol) I loved photographing people with weird lighting, available light, like cigarette machines, streetlights, things like that. Now I mostly shoot “regular” photos, pretty boring.

  11. moondaddy says:

    i love how humans need something to blame, its like having an excuse that then excuses them for trying to break their habbit or improve themselves, i can browse up to 6-8 hours easily however i still can study/work and play.

  12. marxistworker says:

    The internet has a treasure trove of information on science and history. And all of M. Gorky’s short stories are on it!!

    The Internet will become more and more part of our life even if we like or not. Also the Internet it’s the biggest spy of all times… it’s up to you to decide how much let him invade your private life.

  15. testicules says:

    The internet would not exist today if it were not for the explosion of porn on the internet in the 90’s

  16. Yanov Uskhar says:

    I have an internet addiction that is why I visit this site so often.I can bypass the aggravation of paying travel expenses and frustrating tourists schedules.I realize it as not as rewarding as actually being there.I don’t take the time to learn computer programs or how to use Microsoft Office Suite but I love to surf the net.Doing this however does not help with being overweight and lethargic.

  17. Mr.Tinkles says:

    liek me, ALWAYS checking EnglishRussia :P

    Of the many things I do online every day, I come here to read up on what’s going on in a country I can honestly say I’ll probably never visit (I wanna see more of my own country before I go exploring other ones).

    As fi dorit sa fie si baiatul meu in poza.El sta 11 ore pe zi pe internet aproape zilnic.Are un joc de socializare cu multe necunoscute, dar din asta nu cistiga bani.Se pune si problema de timpul de expunere la radiatii.De problema asta nu se prea vorbeste.

  21. Tangowolf says:

    I think I fell in love with Oxana. lol

  22. andy says:

    It is the TYPE of time spent on the web that matters, I think. I read only important e-mail, I check ER and one or two news sites, but admit I can bounce from link to link – very bad!

    But worst of all: Software and apps that don’t work right, screen problems, making me spend an hour or more correcting, calling Applecare, blah blah. Maddening. Three HOURS on phone with Apple one day to correct one problem with software or my misunderstanding of it.
