    The United States could be rife with Internet addicts as clinically ill as alcoholics, an unprecedented study released suggested...

    ...the typical Internet addict was a single, college-educated, white male in his 30s, who spends approximately 30 hours a week on non-essential computer use.

    so how much time do u spend on the net every week ? if its more than 30, well u could be addicted acc to this study.

    It's not US that tops the list of most addicted Country!! It's actually South Korea!!
    There are more serious online Game-addicts in South Korea than anywhere else
    in the world. Some of the these guys can't live without Internet even for a single day!!
    No wonder that parents of these kids are worried & consulting psychiatrists so that steps
    can be taken to minimize the Net-addiction & also make them concentrate more on their studies.
    Even Japan has got more technology addicts than U.S.

    I guess its India that tops the list because it produces large numbers of IT professionals and is known for that.
    Neways I'm insomniac and hardly get to sleep 4 hrs and spend almost 6 hrs a day on PC. SO 6*7 => 42 + a few extra hrs on sunday :shock:, I'm ruined!!
