Addicted? That's Questionable

I never understood why we had to say we were alcoholics just because we drank a lot. I didn’t think I was addicted. In fact, I really thought I could quit any of those things anytime I wanted. I just chose to do them. But, when the time came that I did try to quit, I had trouble with each of them. Have you ever been there? Where you thought you could give something up when you chose to and then found out you couldn’t? Are you still there?

Addicted to the Internet?

If someone’s Internet use is defined by the criteria in this checklist, it does not matter if they call it an addiction or not. The person risks great consequences if he or she chooses to do nothing about it.
