Are you a compulsive internet user? Going online is easy but to log off is another story. In today’s technological age, It`s no longer a rare experience nowadays that most people find it hard to do so.
To be honest, I’m beginning to realize that I’m part of the group. This is a self- proclaimed but, I think it is not really a disorder, or not even officially disorder. I’m having a hard time separating myself from my computer especially when my work is unfinished. This doesn’t mean that I get angry and depressed when the power is off. The only thing matters is the sense of responsibility to finish the job.
The reason why? I loved to write and it is very convenient to do anything and everything on the Internet. Web has become a common place in my modern life, and I loved this kind of activities going on in my own website; answering comments, twitter, forums, emailing, etc. It’s a part of my job, the line of work and responsibility to update everything. Without internet, there is something missing in my life.
I’ll just describe myself as a plain regular surfer but the time spent long hours was so stressful. aside from my motion injuries of my fingers and my dry tired eyes too. The webcams is adding more to the growing epidemic but I only use it if it really calls for it I do not visit social websites. I can control my own behavior without craving to go online regularly.
My answer to the question above is yes! In my own opinion, It helps a lot because it is a source of information but if you have no self-control will hooked and destroy you. Some people may defend themselves and say” They will use it for researches”. How about the effects next day? It will cost hours of sleep and rest, backpains, and neglecting time with family and friends. thus, surrendering your privacy to technology. This is the bad effects. It happens sometimes that seconds after I wake up, I’d want to go back to sleep again because I felt so tired and lazy to move around.
So far, I’m taking some steps to divide my online time with the real world to refrain from addicting forming. I don’t like the idea getting online to be addicted sitting infront of the computer for long hours. The good thing about real life is, You can feel the love and hugs with feelings of concern. The real life is the thing that I have to face it because I can feel the excitement with personal interaction.It’s the reality of life. How about you? I just hope You can usually switch to offline activities without such angst.
