are you addicted to internet?

Or addicted to email?

I am.

Americans of all ages can’t go very long without the Internet—in fact, they prefer the Internet over everything else, including their friends and one of nature’s most primal instincts. The world’s fourth-largest advertising agency, JWT, made the findings in a survey of 1,011 American adults, and discovered that the Internet has become such an integral part of our lives that some of us are willing to make major sacrifices for it.

Survey respondents were asked how long they could go without an Internet connection and still feel “OK.” 15 percent of the group admitted to being weak-willed and said that they would only be able to last a day or less without feeling isolated and disconnected from the world. Another 21 percent didn’t do much better, saying they could only go a couple of days, with 19 percent saying they could go “a few days.” Only about 18 percent of the group said that they could go a week or more without being connected, according to the results seen by Ars Technica.
