It’s all too easy to become addicted to the internet. There’s even a test that you can take to see if you’re addicted, with questions like “How often do you feel depressed, moody, or nervous when you are off-line, which goes away once you are back on-line?” Here it is:
* The Center for Internet Addiction Internet Addiction Test
I just took the test, and they assign you into one of three categories:
20 – 49 points: You are an average on-line user. You may surf the Web a bit too long at times, but you have control over your usage.
50 -79 points: You are experiencing occasional or frequent problems because of the Internet. You should consider their full impact on your life.
80 – 100 points: Your Internet usage is causing significant problems in your life. You should evaluate the impact of the Internet on your life and address the problems directly caused by your Internet usage.
I’m in Category 2, with 55 points. Not too bad? Still, it’s a good reality check on your internet usage!
