Are You Addicted to the Internet

I didn't think that I had an addiction until today. I woke up this morning and I can't get my server going and I had a panic attacked. Poor Carlos was about to leave for work and also going away for a short trip and I was giving him a hard time. I wanted him to check the server or the box downstairs and he needs to get to work. And with him going way I was at the brink of tears. What am I going to do without him and my internet for a few days? I can't blog, I can't chat, I can't check out my favorite blogs, I can't check my comment or reply my emails.

Honestly, what did we do before internet. I can't go on a day without checking my blogs or my emails. It is really sad. Are there any other addicts out there? Please don't tell me I'm the only one. Go ahead and take this test Are You Addicted to the Internet and see if you are an addict like me :) I scored a 69%. It said " In your opinion, life without the internet is hardly worth living. Could be, but you probably need a bit more fresh air and sunshine to think clearly"

I called Verizon and the finally get my server working. My life is back to normal again ;)

Gert ... I can't believe you are addicted when you have such a passion for cooking & baking. Haha!

I scored 50% which makes me an Average User. I think my addiction to shopping at stores tipped the score. :)

Rita, your score only 50% :) very well balance ha ha. Cooking and baking is passion and I am not addicted to it :) Lucky I am not addicted to shopping and if I am Carlos won't be happy man.

Lesly, wah you score is higher than mine :) :) Well, I guess you spend more time for PPP that is why. Lucky Carlos didn't complain much. If I don't have my internet I will be bored to death :) :) Yeah, Carlos is pretty savy with computer.
