I was wondering if i was the only one who is glued to his computer all the time. Internet has changed our lives for ever. Gone are days when people will wait for the their favorite TV serials. But with the advent of internet the concept of entertainment has changed. Internet gives the power to know what we want to know and when we want to know. Internet is all about me. How you use your internet also defines who you are. What you think? when you think what and most importantly how you live, where you live, what do you eat and when do you eat? The digital world knows about you everything. It is both powerful and dangerous.
Now that you have so much in your hands you can use it any way you to want. You could use to meet new people, to find your life partner, and to even watch porn. It is as addictive as a drug.
Like electricity you could use to illuminate your life or you could use it to electrocute yourself.
A quick search on google revealed wikipedia article Internet addiction disorder. Internet addiction is no longer an hypothetical concept. It is for real. I feel i am addicted to internet because it feeds on my curiosity more than anything else. Humans in general are curious. They want to understand the world around them. Why are the things around them are the way they are. And with the power of internet in their hands humans can quickly quench their thirst for knowledge. In short internet feeds on human desire. That is why it so addictive. Our desires and needs never stop that’s why we feel addicted to it.
I feel it is even worse than drugs because drug feed our desire to get high. But internet can be fodder to our countless desires. Isn’t it?
What do you think? Are you also addicted to internet? Do you also feel that something is amiss in your life when you are not connected to world wide web? I do for sure. Whenever i change my job and shift to new cities the first thing that i get in my new house is an internet connection. I find it difficult to spend my time. I can live without TV but not without internet.
