The internet is "addictive." ? Anyone else with this problem? [View all]

..Sometimes I can't stop. From here to there back to here, and then over there. There is some kind of mild "buzz" that I get. I do recall feeling almost the same "buzz" playing a slot machine in a casino. It was 23 years ago. I don't go to casinos ever. No Las Vegas. No casinos or gambling of any kind. No horse tracks..No bingo..

...I may leave DU and my computer because of this. Setting limits is very difficult on something I really enjoy and learn from. But, an addiction is an addiction. At least I got the honesty to admit it. This one is very difficult. And I sit at the computer too long. And that is, I have read, dangerous to one's health.. More on this later. Anyone willing to comment on this addiction?
