Web surfing is addictive

Although many employees fear that web surfing on the job could put their jobs at risk, a survey found that still 61% of people using the internet at work admitted to visiting non-work-related sites. Workers spent an average of 12.8 hours online each week, with 24% of that time devoted to non-work sites. 50% of the people surveyed said they would rather give up their morning coffee than their ability to access the internet for personal use.

I´ve been reading too much these days about internet addiction. It´s definetly a massive illness. I wonder how more would we be better at our jobs if we actually just work. But we can´t help it, can´t we?
