So I just realized it , I'm an addict , Its cheap and its legal and the effects are so slight you don't even realize your hooked ..... until its gone
So I guess I'd better explain , the drug is the Internet and come down is a bitch .
Tue 26th July , my internet goes down , no big deal ... its happened before , it'll be back in an hour or so , or so I thought .
Not this time , one day turns to two days , turns to three days , I call the call center and find myself getting angry at the person on the other end of the line , I feel irritated and cut off from the World , hell I cant even check the weather forecast when I want
Day five and they finally fix my connection , I sit there just looking at my little green light that tells me all is well , we are back online , I reflect on the past week and it dawns on me that over the last few years I have become dependent on this internet and the first three days of being offline were like a withdrawal .
If you don't believe it or think I'm exaggerating give it a go , unplug your modem for three or four days ...bet you can't
