ReSTART: Anti-Internet Detox Program

In Washington, there's now a detox program for those addicted to the Internet. The 45-day treatment program costs $14,500. I notice the centre is conveniently located 20 minutes away from Microsoft's Redmond HQ. ;)

And is it ironic that an internet addiction recovery program has a blog, Twitter feed, Facebook sit, and YouTube channel? At least they don't give out their WoW character names.
Well it's probably the best way to reach their target audience. :eek:

Here's how to ascertain if you're a computer and Internet/gaming addict:

Here is what to look for (3-4 yes responses suggest abuse; 5 or more suggest addiction)
• Increasing amounts of time spent on computer and internet activities
• Failed attempts to control behavior
• Heightened sense of euphoria while involved in computer and internet activities
• Craving more time on the computer and internet
• Neglecting friends and family
• Feeling restless when not engaged in the activity
• Being dishonest with others
• Computer use interfering with job/school performance
• Feeling guilty, ashamed, anxious, or depressed as a result of behavior
• Changes in sleep patterns
• Physical changes such as weight gain or loss, backaches, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome
• Withdrawing from other pleasurable activities

Well I think I'm probably safe. Hey, I've never used Facebook and I don't use SMS. My computer use doesn't interfere with my job because my job revolves around the Internet. There have been no major changes in my sleep pattern - I tend to sleep like a log no matter what! Sometimes, I even manage to step away from my computer. :p

So, how about you? Internet junkie or not?

I must admit im an addict. Its to the point that i sleep on my keyboard :p.

Hey kussy, a keyboard can't be very comfortable to sleep on. :p

Well I confess I've probably fallen asleep twice at my computer. Those were "workaholic days". :)

Well, I'm an addict too, but it's worth it :)

The price tag is somewhat phenomenal - I'd prefer to use that money to buy a few good domains :)

Is that website a joke? I find the testimonies quite funny.
And all the links point to the index page. :S

Yes kussy, dnRehab.com is a parody website. It's the first time I've seen it - it sure made me smile. It looks like the talented person behind this website is Tia Wood.
