Internet addiction recovery in Victoria?

I am already a member of Alcoholics Anonymous (because I've had a problem with alcohol) and Overeaters Anonymous (because I've had a problem with food). I haven't found a place where I can talk about my internet addiction though.

I became addicted to forums in 2005; I became addicted to Facebook and YouTube in 2007; I have been living on my own since 2009, and that's when my behavior started getting worse; I had a period of recovery starting in June 2011, then I had a relapse starting in September 2011, then I had another period of recovery starting in November 2011, then I had a relapse starting in April 2013.

I cannot talk about this stuff in AA or OA. Does anyone know where I can go to talk about my internet addiction?

Between early April and late May, I had relapsed into my internet addiction thanks to the free internet at GT Hiring Solutions, a local job search facility. Unfortunately, I had a couple of incidents that led to my decision to cut up my GT Hiring Solutions sign-in card so I can't go in and access the internet there anymore. I'm back to accessing the internet one hour a week at Lotteria Karaoke/Internet Cafe.

After being banned completely from the public library from 2011 to 2013, and after being only allowed to borrow books from 2013 to 2015, I finally got my public library internet privileges restored on April 10, 2015. But it's not a problem for me anymore, because I've learned so much about myself and what is (or isn't) acceptable behavior these last 4 years. :)
