Internet adiction Myth or Reality?

I know that internet addiction is a falacy, my research prooves this to be the case. I began my extensive online researches at 1 pm yesterday (Saturday 25 March) and took a break, to write this blog at 9 am on Sunday 26 March. Must go now I can feel that research project calling!

It is easy to mock those who postulate that addiction to the internet is a problem (see, for example many of the responses to an article carried by The Independent on 12 January 2012, http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/addicted-scientists-show-how-internet-dependency-alters-the-human-brain-6288344.html), however is addiction to the World Wide Web merely a figment of the over active emaginations of researchers or is there an underlying problem?

To test this hypothesis I have decided not to use the internet (starting on Monday 26 March and recommencing my online activities on Saturday 31 March). OK I’ll qualify that statement. I won’t use the internet, in a personal capacity during this period including online browsing using my PC, my mobile, my Ipod and my I-pad. Due to my job necessitating the use of a computer and, on occasions accessing information online I will, however (of necessity) access the online world, for work purposes during this time-frame.

Wish me luck! I’ll report back next weekend.
