Take The Internet Addiction Quiz – You May Need a Session at reStart

restartI have to admit – sometimes I think I spend too much time on the puter – when I’m not on the puter I’m checking stuff on my iPhone.

Am I addicted?

Well, if I’m unsure, I can take the following questionnaire set up by reStart.

reStart is the first internet addiction treatment center of it’s kind in the US.

Let’s see if any of us qualify for a bed in the tranquil surroundings of reStart 🙂
