I live in a yurt in the woods with no electricity. I only very rarely get to use the internet. Suits me fine. :)

We got our first computer six years ago, but since then I've only been without internet when I go on vacation somewhere.

I think the question is supposed be asking how long you have gone without internet since you had internet. Of course most people over the age of 18 are going to have an answer of years if they hadn't had the internet before.

To answer the OP, the longest I've gone is a week and a half, when I was on vacation in a place that did not offer internet access.

3 months... during term late last year. The worst part about it is my ISP refused to reconnect us for a false reason (they were attempting to fradulently recharge us a significant amount that had been paid months earlier).
 
So yeah, that one sucked...

I think a week or two so in retrospect it could have been a lot worse.

The first 16 years of my life. 
 
....and following that, I was on a non-package 1p/min 56k connection, so I didn't really start using it daily until we got broadband when I was around 20 years old.

The first 14 years of my life. 
  

I don't really use the internet all that much these days so I doubt I'd be all that bothered. 
It's little things when I'm on the computer and I have the internet switched off as I always automatically assume its there and assume I can do everything, then forget I can't.

24 hours and it sucked hard. Other than that, the first 35 years of my life before I got internet.

About a month, it was terrible, no xbl, giantbomb, or instant streaming. I am surprised I didn't kill myself.

We didn't have internet until I was about 19 or 20, which would have been about 1999 or 2000......got dial-up for my Dreamcast.   Had that dial-up until a few years ago when high speed DSL finally became available in my area.
 
Edit:  That might not really count since not having something isn't quite the same as having it, then losing it.

I didn't have internet until I moved out on my own. Whenever I needed access, I just went to the public library.

I'm in the middle of it. 3 months and counting. If I didn't have a 3G phone and this mobile site, I would have long lost my mind by now.

12 years, my parents hated the internet because they thought it was a stupid trend, but then i got a dreamcast and my parents were slowly warmed up to the idea of the internet, so that was that!

Month and a half. due to a "technical Issue" my ISP tried to blame on me when after all that time it ended up being their mistake. I nearly went insane as being handicapped as I am means I don't get out much so my internet is an important way of passing time.
