Are you addicted to the internet?
According to Wired.com, people who spend a large part of their day surfing the net could exhibit behavior that mirrors that of drug addicts, alcoholics or sex fiends.
The demographic that is most suscepitible to this is of course teen aged boys who particpate in online gaming...that and middle aged woman housewives who are bored with daytime TV.
Of course in this modern digital age of communication, some poeple's occupations (like mine) require that we surf the net as much as possible to keep up on current trends in our industry.
No real conclusions have come out of these internet addiction studies yet, but give it time.
It will only take one special interest group to trigger a backlash and then there will be 12 step anti-internet support groups to cure you of your "addiction".
You can be addicted to just about anything though...drugs, alcohol, food, sex, gambling, porn, TV...why not the net?
