    I am completely dependent on internet for earning money, work even on Sunday & almost no social life. Now, my internet connection was cut off for 3 days and I learned
    - Internet kept me away from real friends - Called some friends after a long time.
    - Kept away from relatives - Visited some of them.
    I actually felt like i was drug addicted and the drug was internet. 3rd day was really a bad to be without internet.
    So I've decided, from now I will not use internet on Sunday (may be not more than 1 hour).

    Anybody, who can't live without internet ?

    I agree with you totally man. I am currently traveling the world, writing from a hotel room in Mexico. When I left my home country, Sweden, I browsed Internet minimum 5 hour every day. The first few days here, and the first week is really tough. Even tho I experienced a lot of new nature and cultures, I felt empty inside. Internet is for sure like an addiction, but we Internet Marketers need it, it's where we make our living. Just always be in the present now, and remember that this is only for money, and the money is ment to be spent in real life. Because it's real life that the human always have lived in, and so shall we.

    Yeah, but for me, it was more joy to talk with friends and meet relatives than some money spending could give.

    & talking about Sweden, I'm quite impressed by the 3 guys behind Piratebay. Watched entire documentary without break.

    I was addicted to the Internet for some time. Then I had a lousy week, I passed my exams, but barely, so my dad took my laptop for 10 days from me. The beginning was hard so I distracted myself with working out ..... and studying.

    I have been on vacations without Internet access for a week at a time and it was a little weird at first but I got use to it. You can survive without the Internet but why would you want to?
