← Can you really be addicted to the internet?

People who use the internet on a daily basis don't go through withdrawals and exhibit the physical symptoms that people who are addicted to alcohol, drugs etc. if they don't have access to internet. People really misuse the term, IMO.

Sure, I get annoyed if my internet is out, but I find something else to do instead. Take the TV away from somebody who watches soaps, talk shows etc and you will see that they will get agitated as well.
