If a strong WiFi connection is more essential to your life than actual Oxygen you might need to start acknowledging the warning signs that you are, in fact, addicted to the internet.

Here are ten signs that your attachment to the online world has reached an unprecedented level.

1. You've googled step-by-step guides on basic life skills.

How did people know how to boil eggs, send parcels, iron shirts, or find directions before the internet?

2. You've successfully diagnosed someone's medical ailment.

And whoever it was (probably an elderly relative) genuinely thinks you're a medical genius.

3. People comment on your nervous energy when the WiFi drops.

It's not that you're panicking it's just that you don't want to miss out on a trend that could potentially be breaking RIGHT NOW.

4. You consider your Instagram account a visual diary.

Which is why you're constantly on it, pruning your image, checking your comments, and deleting old snaps to keep it in order.

5. You refuse to get out of bed until you've scrolled through all the previous nights tweets.

WHAT IF YOU MISSED SOMETHING IMPORTANT/HILARIOUS/CULTURALLY RELEVANT?

6. You've no idea how to read a map, use a library, or work out simple calculations.

Jokes on that maths teacher who said you wouldn't be able to carry around a calculator around for the rest of your life.

7. You've online stalked pretty much everyone you've ever met, and several others that you haven't.

And then pretended to be completely ignorant when they bring up somewhere they've been/something they like/something they hate.

8. You spend a lot of time wondering if MI6 sift through your random searches. 

You can't really delete your search history, so does that mean all those googles are listed on a file somewhere? PLEASE, GOD, NO.

9. You've spent two hours of your life learning everything there is to know about steam trains, just because.

Or some other random thing that has no benefit to your life/course/job, at all.

10. And you'd rather give up all future earnings for the next ten years over your internet connection.  

Obviously.
