Friday business humor: Internet rehab … no, no, no

Alcoholics, workaholics, Blackberry addictions, now internetaholics?

Yep, it’s true. And there’s rehab for it.

It won’t help Amy Winehouse, but an in-patient facility in Illinois has become the first in the U.S. to treat people struggling with internet addiction, according to ABC News.com.

One college student the article focused on, named Ben, said he spent at least 16 hours a day surfing the web and the hardest part of his day was making his way through the computer lab to get to English class.

“Days would pass before I would shower, shave or eat,” Ben told ABCNews.com.

After treatment, Ben has kept his grades up, holds two jobs and avoids the computer by paying his bills the old fashioned way – through the mail.

If you or anyone you know is suffering, visit the Center for Internet Addiction Recovery website.

Maybe this guy should look into some help:
