This is probably not the best idea to post on WB because it contributes to my problem because I will refresh a thousand times throughout the day but does anyone else think they might have a internet addiction?
I thought my ‘problem’ was because of all the wedding planning I did before the wedding. Now, months after the wedding, it’s still not going away. This is not all WB, but email, facebook, and other sites too.
So I found this site where you can take a test to see how bad your addiction is. I hate saying that word, addiction, it sounds so much more worse than it is. I do think I have a problem.
Maybe to make myself feel better… or maybe worse. Take the test and if you want to, share the score you get.
I got a 54.
What did you get?

I got a 41 which sounds about right.
I wouldn’t consider myself an internet addict, but I do spend slightly more time online than a lot of people I know. I am a student still so I’m online a lot for school work and research.
Doesn’t help any that I have an iphone which gives me instant access to the internet at all times!

I dont want to take the test because I am OBSESSED with WB and spend so much time on here including all day at work and check but not post too often at night!

lol, 26. Yeah, I use the internet as a way to keep from being bored. I am usually obsessed with email, but I’m just as happy doing crafts, reading, watching tv (alone or with the family), or spending time with friends and family.
heh… I even get bored of the internet! anyone else ever get bored with the internet?

27 – Mr. HC’s lucky number 😉 – I think this number may go down when I’m not working from home and literally at my computer all the time!

I didn’t take the test but I know I’d get a high score. I work in digital marketing AND I have two blogs so I spend a crap ton of time online.

To those who didn’t take the test, you would actually be surprised how much less it has to do with the AMOUNT of time you spend online than you think!

I got a 42. I thought it would be higher, but I guess most of my internetting is at home, not work, so it doesn’t affect my work performance. I’m totally supposed to be folding laundry right now, not being on WB.

I’m not as addicted to the internet now that I have a job that keeps me busy all day (and I am too afraid to goof off on the internet because they can check my history)!

i got a 7. i think maybe because i’m on a computer all day at work I’m not that keen on jumping on the computer when I get home. We have crazy intense internet site blockers at work. For example, I can get on yahoo.com but cannot click on ANYTHING because a blocker will pop up and ask me how this is related to my job and if I need further permission to proceed. Even seemingly work related sites I can’t access.
This is also the reason I haven’t broken 200 posts yet on WB lol.

I got a 58. I really am trying to cut down on time spent online though. I think I am worse about it when I work night shift.
