I AM ADDICTED! I AM ADDICTED!! LAlalalalalalaaaaaaaaaa *singing this funny little song!*

But I haven't got any major problems because of this (yet): nobody ever complained about it, none of my personal relationships suffered because of this, I never buy this without a looooong consideration... (I already posted something about the subject somewhere...)

Nope! Only addicted to TP and it doesn't interfer with anything else. Probably helps that I don't "surf", have time, family joins in, dont have a calendar, am my own boss, love TP, have no money to spend, have no (cur)tail, and pleasure/satisfaction is derived from many sources.

You probably have very little tendency to become addicted to the internet

If you gave 7-9 Yes Answers, you may very well be addicted

If you scored 4 yes answers, you may or may not have a tendency to become addicted

If you scored 5 or 6 yes answers, you may have a greater chance of developing a problem
