My understanding is that an alchoholic doesn't know they are an alcoholic...so how do u know if u r addicted to the internet...where do u draw the line?..I use youtube all the time but not sure if addicted?

There is no simple definition of it...maybe this will be covered in the DSM V.

what is wrong with an internet addiction if one is learning as he goes...?
Ever heard of a learning addiction? the term addiction is reserved for an indulgence meaning mostly excessive i believe for no purposeful meaning..
I like to talk when it serves my interests ,it is my mental choice from happiness ,what a great addiction if it is one..
