    Is this you?

    "Tense? Angry? Can't get online? Internet addiction is now a serious public health issue that should be officially recognised as a clinical disorder, according to a leading psychiatrist"

    I keep wondering if the amount of time I spend here is healthy.

    I'm only on here trying to find out why I'm so tense and angry, even worse is when swmbo drags me down the shops !!

    Excessive gaming. Compulsive-impulsive disorder. The need for better computers.:biggrin: Both hilarious and slightly true.

    I refuse - I absolutely REFUSE - to post yet another link to that 'angry swiss kid' video on youtube. We've watched it often enough...

    Yes, I agree. But given the weather outside, I think that doing something in-doors, even surfing the net, is probably more healthy than going out.

    Eeek, I probably spend too long on the Internet but I rarely watch TV so at least I'm not a couch potato :ohmy:.
    I can quite happily live without the internet for a short term period. Couldn't cope indefinitely without it though - I mean internet banking and online shopping is a lifesaver. Think I'd be suicidal if I had to set foot in a bank again and I can't stand shopping, especially during peak periods like Christmas.
