The truth about Internet and Gaming Addiction...
Adolescence and young adulthood are challenging phases in life. Those who are ill-equipped to deal with obstacles turn to compulsive Internet use or gaming in order to "escape" from a harsh reality.
Excessive gaming, social media use, web surfing, and pornography have been "normalized" over the last 2 decades.
What appears to be "ordinary" behavior today is actually aberrant by historical standards. Playing video games or chatting on social media for 7+ hours a day is extremely detrimental to physical health and may lead to serious psychological (mental) instability.
