Twelve Step 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!
