Internet Recovery Program

  1. I will have a cup of coffee in the morning and read my newspaper like I used to, before the Internet.
  2. I will eat breakfast with a knife and fork and not with one hand typing.
  3. I will get dressed before noon.
  4. I will make an attempt to clean the house, wash clothes, and plan dinner before even thinking of the Internet.
  5. I will sit down and write a letter to those unfortunate few friends and family that are Internet-deprived.
  6. I will call someone on the phone who I cannot contact via the Internet.
  7. I will read a book — if I still remember how.
  8. 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 Internet.
  9. I will not be tempted during TV commercials to check for email.
  10. I will try and get out of the house at least once a week, if it is necessary or not.
  11. I will remember that my bank is not forgiving if I forget to balance my checkbook because I was too busy on the Internet.
  12. Last, but not least, I will remember that I must go to bed sometime — and the Internet will always be there tomorrow!

  1. The more I do, the more this is all too very true.

    It’s 2:55 PM and still haven’t shaved since my last client meeting a week ago. I’m thinking about going outside now.
