    How long could you go without Internet?

    These days, we're always hearing about how people are addicted to technology and specifically to the Internet. Do you think that's true? It does seem like it applies to a lot of people, in my opinion. Some people are glued to a screen most of their waking hours.

    Is it true of you? Could you go without your devices, games, social media, etc? If so, for how long could you reasonably last without stressing over it?

    Could you go a day with no access to the Internet? What about a week, a month, a year?

    I'm not really a gadget or tech addict and I can surely last long even without these technology. However, I use gadgets and the internet for my work and I spend my entire day in front of my laptop, working. So I must say that even though I'm not a tech addict, I still need to use it daily simply because of work, not for entertainment and other stuff.

    I would last months without these gadgets and internet as long as I would have free food, electricity and water. Since I am using the internet to earn money, I wouldn't last too long without it. But if it's just about having a gadget so I can play a game or check on my social media accounts, I can live for a long time with out doing that. There are times when we won't have electricity for a day because of some tech issues in the electric company. I would get myself occupied with cooking for my wife, reading, or playing the guitar while the power is out. Or me and my wife would just have some hours of talk which is really good since we don't talk too much unless both of us aren't doing anything.

    I use my computer and Internet for earning also, so that is the main thing I need it for. I couldn't care less about constantly checking social media, so I'd be fine in that regard.

    I do use these tools for entertainment as well, but then again, I can always read a book or something instead. So, no biggie there either. Of course, I'd rather not do without them, but I could if I had to.

    We used to experience frequent power outages, so I feel you. They were generally temporary and not too long but still frustrating. I guess that's why I learned to deal without having tech available, which is probably a good thing.

    I get what you mean, because I'm one of the ones who lived without it before it was a thing. The point is that it would be very difficult for most people to get used to going without it, if they use it a lot.

    As noted, some people use the Internet for work as well. It's currently my only source of income. I wouldn't actually be fine without it indefinitely. I'd get hungry after a while.

    As far as just playing games, music, streaming vids, and doing the social media thing, yeah, those are not necessities.

    Me, probably one day. That's the only entertainment I have and I don't have many friends that are willing to hang out either. I have a television but there isn't anything entertaining enough most of the time. My job also depends on the internet too so I just can't go without it either way. One day without internet could mean a good amount of money lost. I guess I am addicted but I also need it. It's also the easiest way to communicate with family.

    All of my productivity is related in one way or another to the internet. But if we forget about all that, we still have entertainment without needing the internet. I'm talking about non-streamed films/TV, video games, books and comics/manga, etc.

    I think most of those who couldn't handle it are too attached to social media. I came close to deleting my whole social media presence lately. They're very negative and narcissistic platforms. Narcissists would be the true "victims" of an internet outage since they'd be presented with the reality of actually doing something to earn the admiration of others.
    Gene: "Have faith in me guys, enjoy the ride—you're in good hands. I can handle this. I can do it!"
    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    I work and play online and even when I'm not working or playing online games, I do other stuff like shopping, banking, paying bills and so on online so I have to say that I am one of those people who could never be able to go without internet for an hour, let alone a day or two. I have nothing against staying glued to the screen as long as it's taking me away from other more destructive stuff. I used to go out and drink a lot before I started spending so much time on the internet. For me this is a healthier lifestyle.
