Internet Addiction Disorder
Beware of the internet!! Those who are addicted to web surfing are more likely to suffer from the Internet Addiction Disorder – a pathological condition that can lead to deep depression and anxiety.
The addiction is just not an urge, it manifests as a craving much like you being hooked onto exercise, smoking, or even using the mobile phone. So what are the symptoms that can warn you of your internet addiction? You might experience loss of sleep, anxiety when offline, isolation from friends and family, loss of work and periods of deep depression. People between the ages of 16 and 60 can suffer from this disorder and more so if they suffer from the “empty nest” loneliness syndrome.
