12-Step Program of Recovery for Web Addicts

I will have my favorite cup of hot chocolate, coffee or tea in the morning and read the newspaper like I used to ... before the Web.

I will eat breakfast with a knife, fork and spoon and not with one hand typing.

I will get dressed before noon.

I will make an attempt to clean the house, wash clothes and plan dinner / take out the trash, mow the lawn and clean the garage before even thinking about the Web.

I will sit down and write a letter to those unfortunate few friends and family that are Web-deprived.

I will call someone on the phone who I cannot contact via the Web.

I will read a book ... if I still remember how.

I will listen to those around me and their needs and stop telling them to turn the TV down so I can hear the music on the Web.

I will not be tempted during TV commercials to check for email.

I will get out of the house at least once a week, whether it's necessary or not.

I will remember that my bank is not forgiving if I forget to balance my checkbook because I was too busy on the Web.

Last, but not least, I will remember that I must go to bed sometime ... and the Web will always be there tomorrow.
