Is it real? I certainly feel like it is. When I am not online I feel restless and uncomfortable. I once applied for a job and needed to have my fingerprints taken. They could not be read due to the fact they were worn off from too much typing. I could not stop though. It would be so uncomfortable for me to do so...I do really feel I suffer from an online addiction. However, that being said...I really have no motivation to stop.. Although I would have liked to have gotten that job, and an online addiction sometimes stops you from giving others your full attention.
