Understanding Internet Addiction
Internet addiction involves excessive use of the internet to the point that is disrupts one’s life or causes severe stress on family, friends or one’s work environment. It is common for people with an internet addiction to place a priority on internet use over other aspects of their life and to the extent that it dominates the addict’s life. Like other addictions, internet addiction makes people willing to sacrifice every other part of their life in order to continue their unhealthy behavior.
