Internet Addiction
has even been championed as an actual disorder, notably
by psychologists
Kimberly Young, PhD and David Greenfield, PhD.

The possible cause of internet addiction is that people with other
mental disorder or symptoms depres
sion as feelings of
isolation or stress may self-medicate by using the internet
in the same way that some people use alcohol or drugs

A HOAX OR A REAL MENTAL DISORDER?

Many experts have declined to comment on the status of the internet
addiction disorder for a long time. Actually, the internet addiction
disorder started as a satirical hoax made by Ivan Goldberg sometimes in
1995. It was not really intended to be part of the wide array of disorders
that threaten the modern person's sanity at the time but as move on into the
digital era, the very idea of internet addiction as a form of diseases is no
longer remote. In fact, many health professionals are now convinced that too
much attachment or destructive type of dependency on the internet can
already be classified as a form of disease.
