Are you addicted like me?

I thought I might have a problem, or at least priority issues but didn't think I was an addict - until now.
While sitting in the carpool lane I was reading Baby Talk magazine (I keep a stash, usually Glamour, in the car so I don't loathe the wait) anyway, I read an article that said Internet addiction is on the rise - especially with SAHM like myself.

Here are the signs:
  • Do you check e-mail before doing other important tasks, like playing with or caring for your baby?
  • Are you constantly forming new relationships online?
  • Are you less productive at work or neglecting household tasks?
  • Do you often stay online longer than you intended?
  • Are you losing sleep due to staying online late at night?
  • Do you crave computer time when you aren't logged on?
  • Do you choose to go online instead of spending time with your partner?

If you answer yes to 3 or more of these, you might want to cut back or seek help.

Just don't start by stop reading my blog. lol.

Me? I don't think I'll be abandoning FB anytime soon, but I'll make sure I do laundry ever day ; )

I'm extremely addicted to the internet - although I'm not on near as much as I used to be. (hmmm...wonder why?) therefore, I don't think I'm THAT bad. LOL...

Uhhh, I won't tell you exactly how many I answered yes to, but I'm definitely addicted!
Having an iphone doesn't help my problem either.
Or maybe it does.

Wow. That sounds familiar...

Dion said...

Ouch! I guess the first step is admitting I have a problem, right?

Trisha said...

oh my! it appears I may have a problem. :)

Oh, no! I think I am addicted!

Don't know if you remember me. I found your blog from Hollie's site. Jennifer Moore? I love reading blogs (especially of people I know) so I wanted to stop over!

Have a great day!
