Hi CL, I couldn't agree more. I blame myself for my recent health problems. And I do mean sitting here on the computer too much. I have had a wake up call and am getting more exercise.
Our society is becoming more and more computer dependent not only for information, but for fun and entertainment. This trend is a potential problem affecting all ages, starting with computer games for kids to chats for the unwary or vulnerable adult.
Like other addictions, it affects other people -- family, friends, and co-workers. Spouses complain that their loved ones neglect them. Couples separate when one of the partners finds someone else on the Internet and leaves home. Like gamblers they compulsively keep investing time and money. They fantasize that the next connection they make will solve all their problems.
Do any of these stories sound familiar to you?
