  1. You place your refrigerator beside your computer.
  2. Tech support calls YOU for help.
  3. You start to experience “withdrawal” after not being online for a while.
  4. Being called a newbie is a major insult to you.
  5. Your teacher or boss recommends a drug test for the blood shot eyes.
  6. You get up at 2:00 AM to go to the bathroom and turn the computer on instead.
  7. You block out disturbing thoughts about your life with soothing thoughts of the Internet.
  8. It takes you 15 minutes to scroll through your bookmarks from top to bottom.
  9. When you check your mail and it says “no new messages”, you check again just to make sure.
  10. You refuse to go to a vacation spot with no electricity and no phone lines.
  11. You ask your doctor to implant 1 GB in your brain.
  12. Your wife says communication is important in a marriage so you buy another computer and install a home network so you can chat.

Wow, I love the internet but I guess I'm not considered addicted.

You place your refrigerator beside your computer.
Thought about it, but never actually did it.

Tech support calls YOU for help.
I have come close to that, I have had tech friends call me to fix a problem they are fixing for someone else.

You start to experience “withdrawal” after not being online for a while.
Nah, I welcome a break away from this ugly place. :p

Being called a newbie is a major insult to you.
haha, sometimes.

Your teacher or boss recommends a drug test for the blood shot eyes.
I have had someone mention that before

You get up at 2:00 AM to go to the bathroom and turn the computer on instead.
Never done that

You block out disturbing thoughts about your life with soothing thoughts of the Internet.
Nope

It takes you 15 minutes to scroll through your bookmarks from top to bottom.
It takes a little bit, but not that long.

When you check your mail and it says “no new messages”, you check again just to make sure.
I definitely do that one...

You refuse to go to a vacation spot with no electricity and no phone lines.
I welcome it

You ask your doctor to implant 1 GB in your brain.
I have made a joke regarding that.. I have a horrible short term memory.

Your wife says communication is important in a marriage so you buy another computer and install a home network so you can chat.
Not married!

heheh... that reminds me of another possible item

You usually come back from a party/disco/concert at almost dawn and check a few sites before going to sleep.
