US internet addicts 'as ill as alcoholics'

US internet addicts 'as ill as alcoholics' - tech - 18 October 2006 - New Scientist Tech

Is Internet addiction a mental disorder? A professor at Stanford University School of Medicine thinks so. Internet addiction shares the same signs and symptoms seen in other well known addictions, such as gambling or alcohol. The professor and his staff conducted an informal survey on more than 2,500 net users across the U.S.. It might be time to recognize Internet addiction as a true mental disorder which requires medical intervention.
