NB: i opened the comments for this post.. because I badly need help.. I do not wish to continue this way for long... I am slowly losing MY life..

Most researchers agree that for many Internet addicts, the root of the problem is that the person is trying to avoid something in their life. Internet addicts typically have problems in their everyday life, usually related to family, relationships, work, or school. Many addicts are unemployed and have a lot of time on their hands. Going online is a safe, fast, and easy way to escape the problems of life, or simply to fill the empty and lonely hours of the long day.

Like any other addiction, Internet addiction will eventually create problems in the life of the addict. Usually the first problem to arise is with the addict's relationships with a spouse, friends, and/or family. Because the addict spends more and more time in solitary seclusion, they are spending less time with their loved ones. Arguments and interventions often lead to the addict lying about how much time they spend online, which invariably leads to distrust and discontent from loved ones.

When Internet addiction spirals out of control, people spend far less time doing the activities they used to enjoy. Every aspect of their daily lives becomes neglected, and their well-being begins to suffer. The powerful stimulation of the Internet causes the addict to become bored with activities that are mundane in comparison, such as reading.

Great Blue that you gave us the chance to comment in these unique blog.
First of all to take the whole issue easily. If you do really spend too much time on the internet, you may still be not addict at all, especially if you have nothing else to do. And of course most Egyptian girls have nothing else to do most of the time due to the very long list of forbiddens.
The problem is there when you do really have something to do else, and especially when it something you like, but you chose not to do it because you cannot leave the internet. If it is that way don't feel upset, all you need is to have a break. Something like fasting, cut your relation with the internet for a while, the longer the while the better. For example stop visiting the internet for 3 or 4 days. This period of time you will help you be able to reevaluate and reorganize your relation with internet. This period will give you more internal freedom in front of things you are used to do daily. We always need to stop whatever activities we are involved in, even work, to be able to reevaluate and reorganze our relation with it, so we are the one in control of our lives not the things we do.
Read this post, I just remembered it when I read this one:
