    Default Can you live without internet?

    So I've been doing a bit of moving and now the new place I'm in doesn't have internet as there is no phone line (I'll get it in a few days). So the only internet I've been getting was a cafe close by. It's a bit more annoying than I thought and I've realised internet's been integrated in part of my life. Is that good or bad? Maybe I should go cold turkey for a week without the net. The cafe's wasting my time and money.
    So can you people live without internet?

    No, I have become way too spoiled with access to almost any information I want.

    I couldn't have survived these last eight months without it.

    lol what happened to good old fashion books? Being dependent on the internet can't be too good.

    I still read books but they don't really compare to the research power of the series of tubes. Longest I was off the internet was two months when I moved across the country and it was hell lol.

    Wow, two months. I can only imagine the relief you got when you got internet again.

    I could but it would be very difficult. Too much of my life is connected to it.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    ^ I guess it's more torture for introverts to go without internet.

    For some, it's the best way to get social interaction, with the least chance of getting hurt.

    And yes I can, but I would miss the ready information/entertainment.

    Would that be physically or emotionally hurt?
