Are You Addicted to the Internet?

Like most people, I have cable and the internet. Guess which one I use the most?  Yeah, I'm addicted to the internet.  If I was the only person in the house, I wouldn't even have cable cause I can watch pretty much any show that I'm interested in on Netflix.  Yeah, I only watch the old seasons but if I haven't seen them before, they are all new to me.  All I have to do is stay away from Twitter when they are talking about an episode that I haven't seen yet.

Anyway, next to YouTube, I think Netflix is the best thing since sliced bread.  So as long as I have an internet connection, I'm happy.

I'm pretty sure I have more internet friends than real life friends.  Does that make me weird? If it does, I don't mind because I've always been weird so I'm cool with it.

Before there was internet, I read a lot of books and put a lot of puzzles together.  I'm not sure if I'll ever be able to go back to those simpler times.  I still read but I download my e-books or audio books to my Android or Ipad.  I mean, even if I don't have internet access at home, I have it on my phone, or at the library, McDonald's even has WiFi.

What did you do before the internet? Would you be able to live without it?

good post, today many people are so addicted to the internet. it makes social relations become less good because they are busy with activity on the internet.

Thanks for reading.

I still have pretty good real life social relationships but I find a lot more people online that share my interests.
