I think I normally start to crave it after a week away. I start to miss instant answers to the random questions that come up during the day.

I could go without it for a long time. I would just have to change some things around.

24 hours is probably as long as I can endure.

A few days, maybe.

My partner lives in another country right now, and the internet is our primary means of keeping in touch.

Business wise--24 hours is pushing it.

Personally--I would miss it after a day or two, but can do without it if I have to.

We survived without it for a week after Hurricane Sandy. I was glad when we got it back, but I'm sure if the Internet ceased to exist one day, it wouldn't be the end of the world for me. I survived half my life just fine without it anyway...

But I wouldn't want to have to live without it. Those random questions drive me crazy now, too.

In a desperate situation, I can go a month without the internet, but by then I'm going so nuts, I feel like the crazy cat lady from The Simpsons. -I say this because my friends call me the crazy cat lady- Still if I had to chose how long I had to go without. I'd say two weeks, tops.

GONE! GONE!
I get antsy after a week.

I have gone a month or so without it. I would just go and do other things.

Our internet always randomly messes up, so I normally have to go a day or 2 without it when it does that.

I'd be going through some pretty serious withdrawals. Being on a network any kind of network is part of my job, never mind in my personal life. Five minutes would be too long for me.

After two days, I'm a little nutso from no internet. By then, I'm either using somebody else's, or am seriously debating sitting in a McDonald's parking lot to use their free wifi. lol

A day at most. My internet was broken throughout February this year and I was going completely nuts. How did people live before?

I rely on it for Eden. But for personal use... I think at this point I could go a long time without it, and not miss it at all. I spend so much time online, a break might be nice someday.

Not long at all, honestly. I spend a lot of time online, working and surfing.

It depends. I really missed the internet post-superstorm when we had no phone, no television, no heat, etc but when things are normal I sometimes go days without using my computer.

As long as I'm out doing things, mostly adventuring with friends, I can go over a month just fine. Without the diversions though, 'the craving' sets in in mere hours.
My major is IT, my job is and will be computer based, but I'm quite happy to take a long break from it all.

I can make it a month if I have other things occupying me. But I get cravings pretty quickly. Ignoring blogs, forums, email, and fandoms; regular internet access just makes life easy. I like being able to look up movie/tv times, wikipedia some topic from a book I'm reading, use it for weather/news, recipes. Having instant connection to information is just damn useful and a pain in the ass when it's unavailable. Then, there is the community aspect of it which is incredibly addictive.

I suppose if I had to I could live without it indefinitely. It would probably just take a few weeks to adapt though

I`ve gone probably about 3 days without it. But my family likes to stay in touch so they freaked out more then I did.

We took a week long Caribbean cruise a few years back and a week without Internet about drove me crazy. I can go a few days, but a week is pushing it.

At this moment if don't have at least few more hours of internet between now and the 25 it would means I'd fail the course I'm taking and not graduation so not long.

Since I need it for work and I need to work so that I can buy more toys, 5 minutes.
