Im probably addicted
but in all honesty, I prefer the online universe to reality, as least online I can do whatever I want. 
If I did half the stuff I do online IRL, id be locked up and the key thrown away :(

I probably classify under some of that description, but I don't feel the need to classify an avoidance technique as an addiction.

 

People suck, my computer doesn't, works for me.

Well, shoot, I fit many of these except the poor self-hygiene part. Yes, I felt the need to clarify that  :laugh:

Being addicted to something doesn't automatically make it unhealthy. It's just the dweebs who want to control your life who claim that drivel.

 

I've been "addicted" to computers since 1981. I live, eat, and breathe technology.  I fart machine code and burp microchips.  I've still found time to find a girl, get married, have kids, work a 9 to 5 job (as a programmer :p), and generally enjoy life. Anyone telling me I'm an "addict" can stick their heads up their IO ports! :p

Exactly what I was thinking. Marathon programming/gaming sessions aside, I still spend more time with my computer than anything else. Computers are the new TV. At least we can do interesting things with them and learn stuff. That's better than staring at a TV for hours on end. Though to be fair, I do watch quite a few of shows/movies on my computer too :D
