Internet Addiction

Internet addiction is now a "Clinical Disorder".

Obsessive internet use is a public health problem which is so serious that time has come that it should be officially recognised as a clinical disorder, according to a leading psychiatrist. Sufferers spend unhealthy amounts of time playing online games, viewing pornography or emailing.

They suffer these common symptoms:

1. They forget to eat and sleep;
2. they need more advanced technology or more hours online as they develop "resistance" to the pleasure given by their current system;
3. if they are deprived of their computer, they experience genuine withdrawal symptoms;
4. And in common with other addictions, the victims also begin to have more arguments, to suffer fatigue, to get lower marks in tests and to feel isolated from society.

So are you an internet addict?
I also came across an internet addiction test.
