:inlove: I can't remember the last time I watched a movie on the TV. I've always been an avid reader. Avid I am no more. I still read... but not a book every 2 days like I'm capable of. The PC and the Internet have taken over a big part of my life. I do not really care how many meals I miss or how much sleep I deprive myself of. I think I am addicted to the Internet. Does anyone know of an Internet Anonymous in my area? :flowers: :trumpet: I'm grateful for my kids because I would be way worse off without them. They keep me busy and in the here and now. :thumbsup:

You know you're an Internet Addict when...
Your microwave becomes a place to *store* uneaten dinners, rather than a place to heat them up

You know you're an Internet Addict when...
You possess more than one webpage of your own, when you don't even know HTML


You know you're an Internet Addict when...
You switch on the computer before you switch on the kettle in the morning

And of course heres the twelve steps pandy!!

1. Admitted we were powerless over our computer

2. Came to believe that a power outside our monitor could restore us to sanity

3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of HTML re~programming as we understood it

4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves via Yahoo, Netscape or the favourite browser of our choice

5. Admitted to our hard~drive, our mailing list, the attendees in various chatrooms and ourselves, the exact nature of our technical ineptitude

6. Were entirely ready to be HTML re~programmed to remove all these technical ineptitudes

7. Humbly asked our cyber~sponsor

8. Made a list of all cyberpals we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all

9. Made direct amends to such cyberpals (via chatrooms, e~mail, Honorary websites, signature subliminals, cyber~poetry, etc.) wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others (or our modems!)

10. Continued to take personal inventory of our ineptitude, and when we were wrong, promptly blamed our software, hard~drive, manuals, friends, cyberspace, the phone company, etc. etc.

11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with HTML, as we understood (or lacked thereof) HTML, praying only for the knowledge of HTML and the power (and eptitude) to carry that out

12. Having had a technical awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to other Internet Addicts (furthering our addiction and creating a need to work these steps) and to practice these principles in all our electronic correspondence

Computers and the internet do not interfere with a real person's life. They are life! :thumbsup:

:trumpet: That's right CGM~ I will be getting plenty of outside soon. My family and I are going on vacation. I hope my withdrawl symptoms won't be too serious. I told my husband I needed to bring the compy. I would find room somehow. For some reason he said no... I mean just how unreasonable is that? :flowers: j/k. :thumbsup:

Haha CGM~ if I bought a laptop... assuming I could afford it, which I can't, my husband would probably file for divorce. The laptop thing won't be happening any time soon. :thumbsup: :flowers: Actually I wasn't serious with the hubby about bringing the PC but he took it like I was.
