Do You Get Tired Of The Internet?

Not meaning the forum, but the internet in general, I know for myself I’m getting tired of sitting just wasting time clicking and searching stuff
Yes the internet is a wonderful tool, for many reasons, but it is easy to get hooked and life just goes by.

Do you think you waste to much time online?

Yes. I’m trying to make a point of doing more stuff IRL.

I don’t waste too much time online lately. But in the past OH YES. I would get engrossed in an almost meaningless internet-based activity for many hours a day. Just me and some stoopid game or porn or random video streaming. Well it wasn’t all bad but said time could’ve been spent better.

When I am at home I am always at my laptop.

Constantly checking the news, weather, forum, email, YouTube, another forum, music and doing quotes when they come in.

I also spend a lot of time managing my finances on my spreadsheet as well.

It’s probably not that healthy! I smoke a lot when I am online - which I can only do in my kitchen, so that’s where my setup is at!

I’m not typically on the net too much, but since I have found this site I’m spending a lot of time here. So far so good, but yeah I’m already thinking of cutting back. It’s kind of overload

No. I need it. I look things up all day. 3 early European tribes wiped out: the Ostrogoths, the Heruli, the Vandals. Mostly from Scandinavia.

I get tired of the internet and I waste way to much time online but there’s not much else to do because of Covid.

The computer runs day and night. I need the background noise.

I am not addicted but since getting severe negative symptoms nothing else other than the internet and gaming I can do. When I was on Abilify, my negative symptoms were better and I was hanging out with friends daily for most of the day. I had many friends so when those who work worked, I hanged out with those who are on vacation, searching for a job etc

Just like TV. When i get tired/bored i switch it off and change the activity. Internet in our community is necessary these days. Everything is online from banking to shopping or business research. All health organizations are online.

Yes. I don’t know what do I even do on it. I know reddit (mainly just few subs that aren’t so fast), this forum, music and things I have to do.
I recently went on some site I used to go, which I haven’t in two months. It’s tiring. No interesting stuff there, just a way to kill time. I stopped again.

I try to limit my amount of time online. I used to be so engulfed in the Internet that I never did anything else and it was really bad for my mental health

Never got tired of the internet, there’s always something new to learn on click away and you only pay the service.
I couldn’t imagine learning how to code without stack overflow.
I couldn’t imagine doing calculus without wolfram alpha.
I couldn’t imagine reading all scientific papers without ncbi
And the list goes on and on with endless new opportunities brought by the internet.

So to sum up, it’s hard to get tired of something that could be your working tool and at the same time a place for leisure, it’s unbeatable.

I do spend a lot of time on here but it’s how I relax at times and it’s my social time

I wonder if this forum did not exist, if I would actually start reading other things. I really don’t know.

Sometimes I get tired of this site but it is more rooted in confidence issues.
