Here I go getting into trouble again, but one possible definition of internet addiction would be the few regular posters every day on "the tread about nothing" and "three word sentences". OK, now let me have it!

Wouldn't the definition of "internet addition" involve adding something to the internet?

Don't be such a hater.. lol

Dam spell check, post edited to addiction. Not a hater, just a person making an informed observation and drawing a conclusion based on said observation. I could be right, but then again, I could be wrong?

Yes, I am addicted to the internet, my phone, other gadgets too. Love technology and that is probably my addiction. I am not particularly good at any of this stuff, but when it is not working or Century Link if out I am a bear with a sore head.

My addiction is not ruled by the amount of TIME I spend on the net during the day, but to the fact that I NEED to have it up and working in perfect condition.

You might be addicted to the internet if:
- You are trying to be the number 1 or highest poster
- You seek out the wifi password when you arrive someplace new
- Other people are concerned about how much time you spend on line
- Your internet usage has steadily increased
- You get grumpy, anxious, or upset if you can't log in
- You frequently post pictures of your lunch and you are not in the food business
- You constantly fact check or search old posts and believe you are an internet Dick Tracy
