Really considering setting that 20 minutes of work and then 5 minutes of play schedule for myself. Sounds incredibly hard, though. Most stuff I do would take more than 5 minutes. And how much work am I really doing?
Perhaps a 25 minute work period, and a 10 minute play period. Continuously switching off, with STRICT timing. So more often than not, I'd have to stop play early before I get sucked into something that would make it impossible to stop playing without passing the time limit first.
and… that's why i made sure i was the one in control of the modem…
Yay! Nothing more annoying then a fly on my computer screen.
Very bad. Oh, so very bad.
Considering I've been watching this all day as a podcast while doing my world history homework, I'd say I'm addicted. XC
Haven't even watched the video. The answer is "yes I am".
there's no such thing as "good" internet. that doesn't stop me from continuously reading shitposts… and shitposting.
When I can't inject or freebase my internet, I shove it up my ass.
I keep staying up really late because I'm like "Oneeee more video" then I forget about it or see another interesting one and just watch it.
I get so excited when my subs have new videos 0___o I've watched over 7 ,000 videos and have uploaded 0
I have Internet Addiction
Im very addicted! I spent about 10-14 hours on the Internet just listening to Music,playing habbo,playing moviestarplanet,playing Virtual games And im very addicted to ourworld o.O
The internet is pretty cool… The outside is scary and, you know, is full of people. The Outernet is not cool.
Me: I should stop spending so much time on the internet and get a life. *goes out into the real world* I should be spending my time on the internet…
the reason i fear nuclear weapons is that they would shut down the internet.
The key to cure us is that we realize that since we can only watch a very small fraction of what would interest us, it doesn't matter if you STOP watching videos right now; cause chances are that you won't learn anything really important on the next hour that you can't find by chance tomorrow…
Is the internet against your word?
net is my life
My life is pretty much the internet…and it sounds like its not just me.
im on internet everyday 😛
24/7 internet 😀
I aint sayin theres nothing wrong with it.. but im 14 and don't need to do it at all let alone be addicted like society wants everyone to be so screw off
lol in know right!
I have the Cheetos diet but hate mountain dew.. so for me it pepsi instead I have the most dead, awkward social life
Sometimes I find that if I stare into another direction for, like, no reason at all.. My mind starts to switch and I feel like thinking instead of just googling things before I've even completed processing my query internally. And then I think about doing something else but here I am at 5am on a weekday typing into a growing box.. fml..
Pinterest is this theory on crack. Or porn, haha.
I am finally getting out of it.
I spend about 6 to 15 hour so yaaaaaaaa
if you have no sleep, how do u wake up?
You Tube has become my heroine and I'm completely addicted to this freaking thing!
… Oh I wonder what that video is *clicks, gone!*
I… I'm an addict! *sob*
Life sucks. My friend has started going out with a 10 as 60 days ago he registered to a website named Master Attraction (Google it if you desire to learn more.) I’m so envious since I wish to fall in love too. I’m gonna take a peek at this Jake Ayres guy’s emails and find out if it can help someone like me. Odd point is, my friend previously had NO good fortune with females. How do you improve so quickly? His girl’s like a model!
I had to block facebook on my google chrome, that didnt work as it turns out you can still access blocked site under incognito mode.. #stillafacebookaddict!
oh! too much of internet today!
"What makes the internet so addictive?" ….DNews.
The only reason I spend 12 hours a day on the internet is DNews and Vsauce. I swear.
I have been up for over a day… I should probably go to sleep some time.
it's fun to joke about but the internet is kinda taking over my life
But let's not blindly assume that all addictions are bad. I'm addicted to the 'Net in the same way that I'm addicted to oxygen.
The DSM-5 should classify as a disorder all those people who have no internet presence at all — people in 1st world countries who DO have access, and yet they have no email, no facebook, no online anything. Now THAT's abnormal!
I could not live without the internet, I'd go insane. If I lost it I'd do everything in my power to get it back.
My addiction to the internet is ridiculous. I basically have two identities now; real me and internet me 😛
That explains everything.
I only use the internet for learning and watching Youtube. Oh, and playing Path of Exile. My favorite game right beside Dark Souls, where you can be as vain as you'd like. Great game for people with no empathy at all, just makes me happy.
is it a bad thing? 100's of years ago people would sit around reading for fun doing nothing now we have unlimited entertainment in front of our eyes in seconds. It could be the hands down greatest invention ever created
I dream about the internet all the time.
I'm not addicted I'm committed!
I spend about 100 hours a week on the internet.
I'm addicted to adding Google Chrome extensions and making autohotkey scripts
I'm gonna get off the Internet tomorrow I swear.
I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM clicks reddit tab
I may have spent more time on the internet than Anthony has on the toilet….
I rarely get what I need for the internet because my internet connection is so horrible. Every time my home phone rings it cuts off the connection for about 15 mins and I waste my time walking back and forth waiting for it to come back on. >:(
I don't use tumblr, facebook or twitter, but I spend 10 – 16 hours online easily
EVERYBODY, get the SelfControl app for your computer. Download it, enter the websites you are addicted to, and put the timer to 24hours.It'll block the websites, and you will see just how seriously addicted you are. It's the best thing for me when I NEED to work and I cant seem to focus.
Most of my time is on the internet. Sadly… its like COLLEGE (PHONE INTERNET)- Home EAT (DESKTOP)- HOMEWORK (COMPUTER)-PC-SLEEP!
am SOOOOO addicted
I don't really do those social things on the internet…
My procrastination/internet addiction is ridiculous and is heavilly influencing my life and success.. I'm sitting here watching edutainment videos since I woke up 11 hours ago, haven't done any of my work done, work which has EXTREMELY pressing deadlines at this time. Still I'm sitting here writing this.. Oh my God..
sometimes i am on the internet for up to eight hours straight (i need help)
Whenever something happens to the internet and it is down for a day or two, I get SO MUCH DONE. It's crazy how productive I get. I should download something that activates my internet only at certain times..
I need the internet to progress in life. Literally. 😐
lol, pomodoro… it will not work for me… i'd just turn it off… but i wouldn't classify it as an addiction, i can stop… if i want to (example goin camping)… but "regular life" is to boring… nothing happens in this "reality"
I'm addicted to Vsauce, and Dnews if that's applicable
Within 10 minutes of waking up, I usually touch my laptop, then I stay there for 15+ hours taking maybe 30-60 minute breaks every few hours. I am addicted. It doesn't help me that I'm not in school or working right now so I am a full blown NEET with all the free time to dick off on the internet as much as I want.
When I don't have internet, I don't feel any withdrawals and I like to pick up a book and read it cover to cover every now and then, its just there's so many fun things on the internet.
It's a love/hate relationship.
Me hemmmmm 5 Hours i do go to school.
I fucking love the internet and all of its complex fractal-like mesh of links and connectivity. I love using as much bandwidth as possible for some odd reason… I average over a gigabyte per day….
Internet addiction is not a mental disorder… The internet is just THAT awesome! 🙂
Is it an addiction if one actually get something useful out of using it? e.g. watching DNews to learn some new cool stuff.
Used to debate politics and religion on YouTube, it was tearing me part, now I just avoid sites which use those issues. Just didn't feel good as a villain who caused trouble hiding behind a screen name. Feel like I should be doing more "Pay it forward" type volunteer activities where I can do good. Will talk to my therapist about it next week. Just my 2 cents. Feel free if you got any good advice or suggestions.
some months ago i came to terms ''my worst fears''so i got my nose piercedfuck i wasted 3 yearsbut now it seems i'm an addictso i will sit up on my atticscreaming fuck world i'm havingdunno why i wrote that, just felt so
WAYYYYYYYYYYY TOO BAD. :D:D:D:D
I am not relay addicted to the internet am just addicted to knowing every thing. like i don't care if I get a like on Facebook but every time i find some thing on the internet I have to research it more then I become obsessed about researching it . then I move on the next thing it just gos on and on and on.
Let's just say that I went on the computer to check my email, then I can out 5 hours later watching a video of kittens, and somewhere in there I played a murdering game.
My addiction is really bad i spend like 16 hours on the internet each day
Dnews is addicting
My internet addiction is pretty bad. It can cause me to stay up hours after I'm supposed to go to bed.
Try SKEEBLOO Internet-blocker for win7, there's a free version on CNET (A VERY STRICT ONE). It looks simple on the surface, but it's really hardcore underneath it all because it integrates all kinds of cheat-protection mechanisms. Best used when you're trying to help someone (a friend, spouse, a child…)
I literally have a 100+ tabs open right now, to say nothing of my Watch Later list, because when I'm putting off homework I'm just mindlessly clicking around on whatever looks interesting in the youtube sidebar, reddit, FB newsfeed and whatnot, convinced I'm going to read/watch it all at some point later, and when I do finish homework, I get too lazy to pick out what I'm going to read/watch realistically, so all the tabs stay. Repeat over time, and boom, 100+ tabs. I also picked up this habit recently of not going to bed until I've read/watched something really entertaining, even after I just stayed up for homework. I'm an addict fo sho.
I think I need help.
Speaking of internet addiction, just how many videos has DNews made? I've been watching countless numbers of them, and there are still more over there on the right that I haven't seen yet.
For me there is the internet and everything surrounding the internet.
I'm always on youtube. A random thought becomes a learning video. I read internet articles instead of news paper. I think i might have a problem with internet addiction.
I can see this really applying to parodies,infotainment and more humor oriented stuff
I've been addicted for 10 years. Ever Since I got my own computer at twelve years old. I'm an Internet Junkie!!!
Pick your poison, who isn't addicted to something?
Yeah you're so right. I kind of set a timer for myself, but in the end just ignored it with a tiny bit of guilt, then forget it. Play on.
u have the fuckin discovery symbol
Internet addiction has started to show negative consequences on my life four years ago and now I'm very fucked up, I've lost a ton of time and missed opportunities, lost all hope in any future and I spend all the time on the internet just to distract myself from thinking and stressing about life. Since it also prevents me from maintaining a job I don't have enough money for therapy, not mentioning the absolute lack of motivation to even thinking positive or smiling. I've probably already disappointed my parents and ending it all seems to be a pleasant solution more and more every day, there's no going out of this downward spiral.
I would just get rid of internet all in all if I could, but an airbnb apartment I'm administrating for my dad and being the leader of a board in a badmintonclub I'm playing at is forcing me to keep it.
the lion sleeps tonight.
ha lol suckers
any you have to go on the internet to watch this video
I agree because he talks like he has been on a screen all year and has forgotten how to measure his words slowly and deliberately, rather than speaking like a news-feed which doesnt give us time to think about the words and the weight of the moment.
