Help for addicts

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
There is help...

Hello. Yes, you.
You, looking at this screen for hours on end.
You, bleary-eyed.
You, an addict.

Have you looked in the mirror lately? Been outside?
Know what day of the week it is?

Your name was given to us by a spouse or family member who is
concerned about your Internet addiction. At Internetaholics
Anonymous, we can help. We're a non-profit society of recovering
addicts like yourself that provides support and counseling through
weekly meetings designed to help you cope with your problem.

We feature a twelve-step recovery program and in extreme cases,
interventions. Although it is our firm belief that you are never
"cured," you most certainly can recover.

We have designed a brief checklist to determine if you are an
Internet addict. Do you:

1) Have twitches in hour hands when you walk by your terminal?

2) Check your e-mail more than five times a day?

3) Surf aimlessly with no direction, if only to be online?

4) Have red, swollen eyes that hang halfway out of your head?

5) See smoke coming from your computer?

6) All of the above?

If you answered yes to two or more questions (or chose #6), you
have a problem. Please call us at Internetaholics Anonymous.

We're here, we're free, and we're confidential. The first step to
recovery is admission that you have a problem.

Call us today. If you can power off to free up your phone line, that is.

And NO, we do NOT have a website!

Hi, my name is Christy and I'm an Internetaholic...

But how much does 'net work count (or not count)? For my job I'm on most of the day...
