    And I realise the time I've spent in the forum is considerately high (for my mostly inconsistent participation here).

    ...

    And I'm scared

    ....

    Do you ever feel you are spending too much time online?

    Yes. I'm going to cut down on visits to my other sites.

    Not really. I like to spend around 15 to 30 minutes on-line, then I move on to other business, then I come back on-line. Also, I always have some music on when I'm on-line; that's a nice bonus.

    I wonder if there is a simple cure for "Foraholics"? I suppose it may not be long before arm "patches" start to appear in pharmacies. Can you imagine special clinics opening up for the real hard cases, involving counselling and high dose programmes of diazepam, etc?

    I´m online too much, but then again I do a lot of other things while still remaining online, so I´m ok with it in that aspect.

    I'm online a lot. Because I chat to my friends online. Because some of my work is online and a whole lot of other reasons. Soon everything will be obtainable over the net (as if it isn't already)..also you wouldn't have forums like this...

    I never watch TV either. And the internet is just too appealing to me, though I don't use it for much of anything other than to contact people that I couldn't talk to otherwise. And this site, of course.

    Its a pity that "Skype" stopped live chats, we could have had some interesting conversations

    I don't think there's a present diagnosis for internet adddiction. If there is, please do share the cure.
