Internet and media addiction

Computers, smartphones, social networks, television and other media are just the way we access highly addictive contents. Becoming too involved in the stories and the virtual world they are presenting can be abused to escape the real world and the problems in it. But the problems do not disappear if we refuse to look at them, they tend to worsen. When codependent people or children with poor boundaries skills spend too much time online, the behavior can become addictive - out of control, risky and self-destructive.  In spite of the consequences, the addicts cannot stop their acting out.

The behaviors:

  • Online pornography (cybersex – a form of sex addiction)
  • Online gambling (a form of pathological gambling)
  • Videogame addiction
  • Online social networks addiction
