Step Away from that Computer if You Exhibit these Symptoms


Do you suffer from these five symptoms?

(1) Panic when you can't get online.

(2) Get lost on the internet for hours.

(3) Find friends and family less involving than your online life.

(4) Check email first and last thing, i.e., incessantly.

(5) When snorkeling wonder how to access your Blackberry underwater.
