    Can you live without Internet?

    Before I am not using Internet everyday but when I started to write and make some money online I feel that I was addicted to it. I was wondering if you can live without using Internet. Can you live life out of it or not. Share your thoughts ;-)

    I do love the internet, and computing in general... but ff course you could 'live' without it, but the internet does make everything an awful lot easier. As a student, I use it every day for research. Today the internet has become a sort of entity which connects humanity together, and in such an efficient way. One of mankind's greatest inventions (and as a Brit, one of our best inventions tongue). I'm not sure about the money making ability of the internet though such as writing content, but its such a great resource to draw from in all walks of life.

    Could I physically? yes. Could I practically? No. I use the internet for my business, finding clients, researching jobs, promotion etc. It wouldn't be feasible for me to be without internet.  Plus, I just like it smile. I can read, research and look up anything that pops into my mind!

    No, of course not. If suddenly the internet stopped working, i would simply wither into nonexistence. I would just end existing.
    No, of course i could live! DUUUUUUHHHH!

      I guess i would be less informed, but for information and entertainment i could simply watch TV or read a newspaper, so i would not really be affected.

    I could live without the internet but it would take some getting used to.  I know if there was no internet, I would get a lot more done in the real world.  But I think I would be lonely.

    I am currently getting a degree in computer programming and I can say that it has fully fueled an addiction to the internet. If my internet provider goes down, I feel like I have nothing to do and get pretty jittery. Everyday I am on the internet to learn, explore and watch new things. So when that is taken away from me, haha I feel very deprived. I am also pretty big on social networks so feeling disconnected socially has some weird effects.

    I would like to change how much I actually rely on the internet.
