I think I am addicted to internet. I have valuable work to do. But everytime I sit with my work, I end up going to a chat site or just surf. I guess I am just lonely, and internet makes me somehow feel like someone or the other is with me, even if they are not talking to me directly. I recognize that this is interfereing with my work, but I dont know what to do. Though I resolve everyday to not surf, I end up being on the net all the time. It starts with me wanting to check for my messages - will take only a minute - and then I cant get off. I know the right thing to do is regulate the internet time to restricted hours, and also find real life friends that will address the basic issue of loneliness, but I’m just not able to do it :( Its like I compulsivly need someone with me all the time. :( I feel like I belong to internet like this is my home now and I cant get out. I’m ignoring my parents, my phone, my work. Its getting really detrimental and I dont know what to do. Any actionable help will be really appreciated. Thank you in advance.
