Internet Withdrawal Symptoms


The Internet Addict

For the last four months, it has been my daily habit as soon as I woke up, while drinking coffee, to read news in the Internet( CNN, Philippines Inquirer, COMCAST, etc..) as well as read my e-mail. In addition, I have to check for new and interesting articles and responses to my comments from several of my favorite blog sites. Weekly, I will also check the balances of my bank account and investments and monthly, I pay my bills via the Internet or sometimes purchase items in the Internet. In addition to the news, I usually check what is new in You Tube. By the time I finish all these, it is almost lunch time.
Today, we have an electric outage which lasted for three hours from 9:00 AM to 12 Noon. Power outage is rare here in Sacramento, compared to Marinduque. In Marinduque, it occurs daily or weekly, for 30 minutes or less.If there is a typhoon it will last for a few days. Needless to say I have a generator in Marinduque, because of my resort business So if there is a "blackout", I will have emergency electric power for my clients.

Now back to my withdrawal symptoms: I feel depressed. I do not know what to do with myself and appears a little bit confused. Since there is no power, I tried to put on my battery operated radio, but there is no battery, so I started looking for magazines to read. I was still uneasy though after I finished reading all of RD. So, I decided to do yoga exercises, do a little push up and then I started to sweat a little bit. After a while I took a shower and I felt good. It was about 11:00AM and the power was still out. My restlessness started again, so I realized I was really missing the Internet. Luckily an hour later the power was on. Without any hesitation, my PC was on and the results is the blog you are reading now. So fellow bloggers, and Internet addicts, have you experience Internet or blogger withdrawal symptoms? I would like to hear of your experience and how you overcome or controlled it.

Only a minority of blog users (filipino or filipino-Americans,and others) are over 65 years old. Anyway, thank you for visiting my blog site.I hope to see you soon in Marinduque-my island paradise and Heaven on Earth.
