NEW YORK (Reuters) - More than one in eight U.S. adults finds it hard to stay away from the Internet for several days at a time and about one in 11 tries to hide his or her online habit, according to a study released on Tuesday.<br />
<br />
The study by researchers from the Stanford University School of Medicine in California found one in 8 adults admitted they needed to spend less time online, saying this showed "problematic Internet use" is present in a sizable portion of the population.<br />
....<br />
<br />
The survey found that 68.9 percent of respondents were regular Internet users and 13.7 percent found it hard to stay offline for several days at a time.<br />
<br />
It found 12.4 percent often stayed online longer than intended, more than 12 percent said they saw a need to cut back on their Internet use, and 8.7 percent tried to conceal "non-essential" Internet use from family, friends and employers.

Namrac, I hate you so much. So very much. Heres why: HOWD YOU GET YOU'RE 3700 STABLE AT 3GHZ!?!? =[ It must be our hardware differences, we have the same processor and around the same motherboard. Must be the ram or psu. Either way, I hate you so.<br />
<br />
<br />

Lol, could you get any more off-topic?<br />

And yes, i'm addicted, but it is kind of like saying you are addicted to your car, or fridge, since you use them everyday and it would be difficult to live without them. The Internet has evolved that much.

I've never spent more than 3 days ff the computer, except when i go on vacation. And if you cant stay off the computron vacation, or you bring your laptop, your messed up!<br />
Edit: Woah i tried to type "computer", but it came out "Computron". Sounds cooler anyway. Im gonna use computron from now on.

Me too. Sort of. More like procrastinating on my homework. There are those times that I like to get away for a while, like go camping or something. But I have to at least check my e-mail once a week.

I'm going to NJ tomorrow, so I'll be off for about 4 days, no biggie, where I am going there will be plenty of things to do and check out some chicks, MILF too.<br><br>
I could make an effort in trying to stay away from the net but that means more talking with the wife and or watching more fricking TV and I pretty much don't like watching TV. I play with my kid but he's in bed by 8 and the wife by 9:30-10:00......I don't go to bed till 12:30-1 am (wake up at 7 am) so during that time I either visit some other websites or oc.net, mostly here but I'm addicted to NFS MW right now.<br><br>
So, you guys won't see me for 4 days I guess.
