How many hours do you spend on Computers daily? Are you Addicted?

By computers I mean everything: Desktops,Laptops,Smartphone,PlayStation,X-Box. But not TV. I spend about 12-16 Hours on a daily basis doing nothing. If it harms you/stops you from doing work then you can call it an Addiction. I can confess that I am addicted to it.

I spend around 4 and a half hour when its college day and more on holiday. recently I suffered from RSI in my right wrist due to excessive mouse usage, so now I ake breaks every 30 minutes. Also, now I understand the importance of ergonomics.

Repetitive strain injuries (RSIs) are "injuries to the musculoskeletal and nervous systems that may be caused by repetitive tasks, forceful exertions, vibrations, mechanical compression, or sustained or awkward positions".[1] RSI is also known as cumulative trauma disorders, repetitive stress injuries, repetitive motion injuries or disorders, musculoskeletal disorders, and occupational or sports overuse syndromes

^ and trust me, it pains a lot and exercise is the ONLY solution. No medicines, only a surgery for decreasing the pain in worst case.

I'm on my PC most of the time, but I'm not addicted. Reason being that I get bored doing the same thing for a long time and I have a lot of things to do prior to moving out.

My mobile tells me to listen on lower volumes to avoid hearing damage :eeksign: I get scared. But what can I do when the volume of the file is itself low :x.

That just made me felt a lot better to know I am not the only one :-D.

1-2 hours

3-4 if I am in gaming/movie mood.

Not addicted.
Yeah, those numbers tell the story. You're definitely not addicted :lol:!

Even if I try to avoid using computers , I simply cannot since ~90% of the things now are done through my computer like paying monthly bills, checking out prices of products, digging out numbers of local shops,etc.
