The beauty of the internet is that it gives us instant access to everything we want. From shopping, gambling, information, to meeting people, doing things we simply should not do. This beauty, though for many, provides addiction.
While there is now a great deal of responsibility as to whether drugs are legitimate diagnosis or a simple part of a greater problem, it is not denied that there is any behavior that occurs online that really complies with the instructions for addiction.
First, understanding what addiction is will help you decide whether online behavior is addictive. Addiction is an act that you can not live with, something that you feel forced to execute this constraint is the driving force, even though you know that your activity is unhealthy or harmful to your health, social life or mental condition.
Cite this, look at what's available online and we can start to see which drugs are online. It's online porn, both adults and children, both of which can cause you to lose your job, your family, your friends and still people are still committed to participating in the project.
Later of these two types of pornography mentioned will land you in jail as well. Some people may say that you should be allowed to do what you want in the privacy of your own home as long as it does not hurt anyone.
I ask you to take an honest look at online pornography, if it happens online, the chances are greater than not just being online … and it's hurting the people around you … and if you are a child, you are promoting continued abuse of children and you need help.
Another online addiction is gaming or online gambling. Now there are two different different addictions. There are many games that can be played online that do not include any kind of gambling, people are just "addicted" to the game they are playing.
Online gambling can also be addiction, if it's spending your life, if you're building your family and social time in gambling and stop living your life every day.
Again, as above, if the gambling change over the internet, there is a chance that you are also gambling in the real world. There is a difference between doing something for recreation on occasion, but it's time to deal with the fact that "occasion" is not a daily occurrence.
The third type of online addiction is a social networking site. While they are great for average people to engage and engage in powerful friends or meet new people, those who take it over are. Belonging to many networks, spending time online by connecting people and developing improper connections can also be considered unused online.
The key here is that the internet provides instant orgasm, it fills the "need" that one has and it does it with a solution or question. Anyone who has underlying psychological problems can easily become addicted to things online. If you think you or someone you love has a problem, seek professional help.
