← Can you really be addicted to the internet?

Can you be addicted to the internet? That's a very broad question. It depends what you're doing on the internet because the internet offers the user a multitude of different things to do. If a person is doing something in particular for an unhealthy amount of time then I suppose that he or she may be considered an 'addict' but only in the same sense that we use the word addict for someone who watches too much television or is 'addicted' to the gym.
