    How hard is it for you to not constantly check email, twitter, Dawg's, etc?

    When having a conversation with people, do you find yourself Googling on your phone about the subject you're talking about in order to support or verify a point?

    If you go somewhere and accidentally leave your phone at home do you experience anxiety?

    Could you move to a rural area where you'd only have slow internet available?

    Hi, my name is Gitfiddle and I'm an internet addict.

    I am addicted, though when I'm not at home I don't go on my phone hardly at all. I'm plugged into the Ipod though. Been addicted for 15+ years. There are worse addictions.

    I suppose I could stare at a blank screen on my phone when the wife tells me about her day and the whatnots at work.

    If hot chicks would come in to my house and take their clothes off I wouldn't even need it.

    Ironic that you're not addicted but your avatar is the poster boy for addiction.

    A few weeks ago I didn't have it for 1 whole day and it was really hard to get through it. I kinda felt ashamed about it. I shouldn't have to contemplate picking up a book but I still did lol.

    Being a fatso with addiction are about the only problems I don't have, so picking on Artie makes me feel a little better about myself for a couple seconds.
