You can disable mobile data in settings - wireless - connections. you should then be able to use wifi only. Or: in settings - wireless - connections - APN delete the access point names (APNs) related to your network carrier, and only leave wifi apn. (sorry, no X8 at hand, but that should work). You could also ring your network and let them disable data usage on their side (works here with Irish networks)

if i go on facebook and then close it, am i still using internet?

No. unless your Facebook app is set to sync automatically every xy minutes, you're off the net once you close the app. It's not a per second thing. No traffic, no data use. You can stare at the same webpage for 10 seconds or 10 hours (well, some browsers are set to auto-refresh pages, but that is a different matter).
Having said thay, unless you disable mobile data completely, an Android phone is 'online' quite a bit more than you may think.
Apps check quietly for updates, mail accounts sync etc etc... If you are concerned, it is time to read your manual and maybe a few wikipedia articles on Android.
There are handy homescreen widgets in the Market that allow you to cut data connections and only connect when you want it.

In Settings => Connectivity make sure you allow (tick YES) "Local Connection"
