Computa-holic 12-Step Program

1) I will have a cup of coffee in the morning and read my newspaper like I used to, before the Web. 

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 Web. 

5) I will sit down and write a letter to those unfortunate few friends and family that are Web-deprived. 

6) I will call someone on the phone who I cannot contact via the Web. 

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 Web. 

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 Web. 

12) Last, but not least, I will remember that I must go to bed sometime ... and the Web will always be there tomorrow!
