netomania ~ Internet Addiction Diasorder (IAD)


Internet addiction have been formally recognized as a disorder by the American Psychological Association. Internet Addiction Disorder (IAD) is refers to the problematic use of the Internet, including the various aspects of its technology, such as electronic mail (e-mail) and the World Wide Web. people who develop problems with internet use may start off using the Internet on a casual basis and then progress to using the technology in dysfunctional ways. Many people believe that spending large amounts of time on the Internet is a core feature of the disorder.


there are several factors that have been proposed as contributing to Internet addiction. One theory concerns the mood-altering potential of behaviors related to process addictions.the person with an Internet addiction may feel a similar "rush" from booting up their computer and going to their favorite web sites. In other words, some researchers think that there are chemical changes that occur in the body when someone is engaging in an addictive behavior.


One symptom of Internet addiction is excessive time devoted to Internet use. A person might have difficulty cutting down on his or her online time even when they are threatened with poor grades or loss of a job. There have been cases reported of college students failing courses because they would not take time off from Internet use to attend classes. Other symptoms of addiction may include lack of sleep, fatigue , declining grades or poor job performance, apathy , and racing thoughts. There may also be a decreased investment in social relationships and activities. A person may lie about how much time was spent online or deny that they have a problem. They may be irritable when offline, or angry toward anyone who questions their time on the Internet.

Getting Internet addiction help could include talk therapy or prescription medications. Dr Dannon recommends the same type of medications that help people stop kleptomania or a gambling addiction, such as serotonin blockers. An Internet addiction is a serious mental health condition, not simply a hobby or way to pass the lunch hour.we can also encourage other interests and social activities. Get your child out from behind the computer screen. Expose kids to other hobbies and activities, such as team sports, Boy or Girl Scouts, and afterschool clubs.
apart from that, monitor computer use and set clear limits. Make sure the computer is in a common area of the house where you can keep an eye on your child's online activity, and limit time online, waiting until homework and chores are done. This will be most effective if you as parents follow suit. If you can’t stay offline, chances are your children won’t either. always talk to your child about underlying issues. Compulsive computer use can be the sign of deeper problems.Don’t be afraid to seek professional counseling if you are concerned about your child.
The more Internet addiction is recognized as an extreme addictive disorder, the more efficiently Internet addicts can be treated.
