internet withdrawal

In high school my online friends would joke about experiencing withdrawal after not logging on for a day or two… It’s been almost a week for me, and I suppose I am experiencing somewhat severe withdrawal symptoms. At night I’ll have dreams of easy internet access, like an ethernet jack in the hotel room (“Why didn’t I notice that earlier?”). Or I’ll dream that I’m talking to a housemate: “Since we don’t have internet access at our house this summer, where are you going to go online?” And they’ll say, “Oh, at my office.” Then I’ll think, of course, I can just go to my office for internet access. Then I wake up and realize my office is thousands of miles away.
