That can easily happen to anybody. Try to get them out to interact with people. Or maybe suggest counseling. It is hard to say, but if they have come to where they are on the computer all the time and not doing the things that they would nromally be doing, it could mean that they are addicted and not using their time properly. I find myself on the computer a lot more than I should be. It can easily take up a whole day. That is when I cut back and get back into a routine of doing everyday things. But it is so easy to turn it on and get on the internet. It can be a social activity as to comnig to the forum, but there are too many unproductive things that I do. Talk to your friend, let them know your concern. Hopefully you can get them back into having a real life. A normal one.

Best wishes to you Amber,

Hugs Karen

are they in denial about it? Sometimes we have to let them deal with it. And we just hope for the best. Can't you talk to your friend? Maybe they don't realize that they have a problem. Or just don't want to stop. What kind of things are they doing on the internet? You seem pretty concerned so I am picturing that they really have a bad problem.
