I read this article on CNN.com today. It talks about how new mothers are at risk for internet addiction. Are you kidding me is what I thought before I read it. Then I read it. It described me to a T. I am now back at work and not a stay at home mom like the article states, but I think my maternity leave left me with a big addiction problem.
My problem is not that big of a deal on the actual computer. It's my darn iPhone. I am constantly on it checking my email, checking the stocks, checking my blogs, checking Facebook, playing a game, etc.
I am virtually standing up and saying "My name in Tracey and I'm an Internet Addict". I am going to go radio silent for a week. I think it's the only thing that I can do to get myself in check. I'll be checking my work email on my phone but that's it. I'm going to check my email on my home computer and my work computer but that's it (no Facebook either). No iPhone for a week.
My week starts....NOW!!!
