You know you are addicted to the Internet when...

* Your bookmark takes 15 minutes to scroll from top to bottom. * Your eyeglasses have a web site burned into them. * You find yourself brainstorming for new subjects to search. * All your daydreaming is preoccupied with getting a faster connection to the Internet: 28.8...ISDN...cable modem...T1...T3 * And even your night dreams are in HTML. * You find yourself typing "com" after every period when using a word processor. * You turn off your modem and get this awful empty feeling, like you just pulled the plug on a loved one. * You refer to going to the bathroom as downloading. * You turn on your intercom when leaving the room so you can hear if new e-mail arrives. * All of your friends have an @ in their names. * Your dog has its own home page. * You check your mail. It says "no new messages." So you check it again. * Your phone bill comes to your doorstep in a box. * You code your homework in HTML and give your instructor the URL. * You wake up at 3 am to go to the bathroom and stop and check your e-mail on the way back to bed. * Your wife makes a new rule: the computer can't come to bed. * You forget what year it is. * You start to tilt your head sideways to smile. :-) * You begin to wonder how on earth your service provider is allowed to call 200 hours a month "unlimited." * Your wife says communication is important in a marriage so you buy another computer and install a second phone line so the two of you can chat. * As your car crashes through the guardrail on a mountain road, your first instinct is to search for the "back" button.
