Do you think it's possible to become addicted to the Internet? I definitely think so. From funny pictures to YouTube to porn, and even looking up information on Google or Wikipedia, a hell of a lot of shit on the Internet feeds into our desire for instant gratification. Anything you want, anything you need, just click a few buttons and there it is. One thing leads to another, and before you know it, you've spent three or four hours in one spot, doing nothing but mindlessly wander from one url to the next. I've been addicted to the Internet in the past. And I still can be, sometimes. I used to sleep with my laptop next to my bed, open it up in the morning, go away only when I had work, and after coming home I'd go back on until bedtime. It got to the point where, during a major power outage two winters ago, after my laptop ran out of battery I had quite literally nothing else to keep my mind occupied. I think the scary thing about the Internet is, once you get on, you tend to really lose track of time. It's like you become so entranced in this flashy world of wonder that you forget there's a real world out there, waiting to be experienced and explored. Or at least, that's my experience. Getting too attached to the Internet, it gave me momentary satisfaction, but at the expense of everything else in life. The Internet is a great tool and it's great for entertainment as well, but too much of it will pull you in like a black hole, from which you may never escape.
