quitting the internet

    is it possible in this day and age?

    Sure. Try something like ProxyHam if you insist on a similar means of communication. Visible Light Communication will hopefully make enough advances within the near future.

    No

    Anything can be an Internet. All you need is a common medium. Even the power grid can be used for creating an Internet.

    "Broadband over power lines (BPL) is a method of power line communication (PLC) that allows relatively high-speed digital data transmission over the public electric power distribution wiring. BPL uses higher frequencies, a wider frequency range and different technologies from other forms of power-line communications to provide high-rate communication over longer distances. BPL uses frequencies which are part of the radio spectrum allocated to over-the-air communication services therefore the prevention of interference to, and from, these services is a very important factor in designing BPL systems. BPL is based on PLC technology developed as far back as 1914 by US telecommunications company AT&T. Electricity companies have been bundling radio frequency on the same line as electrical current to monitor the performance of their own power grids for years. More recently there have been attempts to implement access BPL, or the provision of internet services to customers via the grid. The prospect of BPL was predicted in 2004 to possibly motivate DSL and cable operators to more quickly serve rural communities."

    That's interesting.

    I don't think it would be that hard to get by without internet. Like I'd need to go buy some maps and a phone book and find some new hobbies but beyond that I don't see any major issues with it. We have the same anatomy and largely the same social organization as our ancestors who got by just fine without telescreens in their pockets 24/7. Our slavery to the machine is of our own invention, an addiction to its pale comforts, very real but immaterial.
