Are you ever able to stay off the Internet for even just one whole day?


This question came to me after another hubber answered another question about being on-line each and every day and how hard it is to not get on-line, even for one day. Do you find it very difficult to not be on-line for even one day, other than being away on vacation? Thanks for answering.

    Hi Shan, thanks for answering. So true, everything is right at one's fingertips no doubt! I still have a "dumb phone" too : ). I do use the Internet a lot for getting directions too. Yes, with on-line banking, YouTube and writing, very hard w/o!

    Hi Cantuhearmescream, ha ha, oh, how I can relate to your answer here!!! Yes, it is a battle no doubt. HP certainly can be addicting no doubt! Hp does operate at such a fast pace it seems at times, and we can get lost in a sea of emails from HP!

    Hi Abby, yes, LOL, I understand. it is addictive and that is from where I got this question in my mind. That's a good idea about the weekends, truly getting away, especially into new adventures! : ) Thanks for answering.

    Hi cat on a soapbox, thanks for the great answer here! LOL, too funny : ) Yes, I do not watch much TV either, that is a good discipline there you have indeed! Those are great "distractions" . . . books and word games.

    Hi PoeticPhilosophy, thanks for the great answer and insight. So true, no doubt, as one learns to appreciate being in human contact with others and enjoying the outdoors, while we are still here! Good answer.

    Hi Jackie, thanks for answering. Yes, I do feel the need to check in here, especially at HP, with responding to comments, etc. It is part of being in the community at HP to do so, and it would be hard to not do so and keep up with everything.

    Hi Nicole Danielle, thanks for answering. That's great to not be on soooo much! Yes, I don't have cellphone internet, and that counts as being on the Internet. Plus for me, no laptop either, just the dinosaur.

    Hi deergha, thanks for answering. Yes, I can do it when my grands are up for the weekend and not get on it at all for a couple of days then. They are my priority. But then, as you say, must see what's going on!

    Hi zanaworld, thanks so much for answering. Yes, you would be hard pressed to stay away from the Internet with that being the case no doubt! Yes, when I travel to visit family, that is the perfect time to stay off the Internet. Great answer.
