The Dangers Of Addiction To The Internet
It is indisputable that the Internet’s benefits are innumerable and that its invention has been a transformative event in the history of our world. However, when users have trouble balancing their online and offline worlds, mental health can certainly suffer.
There are some folks for whom Internet use takes the form of addiction. While no standard definition of Internet addiction currently exists, it is widely thought that those who are in the throes of this type of obsession are characterized by their inability to meet family, professional and other duties because they spend so much time online. Their fixation with the Internet also begins to cause friction with loved ones. Individuals in this category tend to feel withdrawal-like effects when they are unable to access the Internet.
