What To Do If You Are (Or Fear That You May Become) Addicted To The 'Net

A Special Report By Morton C. Orman, M.D.Physician and author of The 14 Day Stress Cure, (c) 1996 -2007 M.C. Orman, MD, FLP.

Dealing with Internet Addiction is no different than dealing with any other type of addiction. Whether you are addicted to heroin, gambling, cigarettes, sexual deviancy, or eating Milky Way bars, all addictions have certain basic elements in common.
The purpose of this Special Report is to review some of these common elements, so you can see if they relate to your own situation. While all addictions can ultimately be cured, this is not always an easy or painless process. A high degree of commitment to breaking established habits is required, as are persistence, dedication, honesty, and self-compassion.
A. Denial
All people who are addicted (to anything) have some degree of denial. Without denial, most addictions would not have become established in the first place.
Denial can take many forms. At the milder extremes, a person may believe "I can handle this problem whenever I decide to do so." The fact that one has a problem is at least acknowledged. At the other extreme, denial often takes the form of: "What problem? I don't have a problem. You've got the problem, Dude. And besides, you're beginning to tick me off!"
Denial can sometimes be so strong that a person's whole life begins to deteriorate, and they still maintain everything is "just fine." Jobs can be lost, marriages can dissolve, a person's health can become affected, and all of these things (and more) can be present for some time before the person ultimately recognizes there is a problem to be solved.
B. Failing to Ask for Help
The second hallmark of most addictions is that people affected are very reluctant to ask for help. The mindset of most addicts is: "I can beat this myself." Addicts are often very proud individuals. Not only are they reluctant to ask other people for help, but even when they do, they don't accept the advice of others easily. Another mistake most addicts make when they do decide to seek help is they ask the wrong kinds of people. Asking family members and friends is not often productive. You would think addicts would avoid asking people who have identical or similar problems themselves, especially if they haven't been successful at dealing with them, but such is not the case.
The best thing to do is to look for individuals or professionals who know how to cure addicted people. While these resource people are rare, you should keep looking for them. If you hook up with someone who claims to have this ability, look at your results and don't hang around too long with this person if you don't see yourself making progress. Keep looking for the right experienced helper and you will eventually find one that works well with you.
C. Lack of Other Pleasures
One thing that is true about most, but not all addictions, is they are often either the only or the strongest source of pleasure and satisfaction in a person's life.
People who become addicted often do so because their lives are not fullfilling. They can't seem to find passion, enjoyment, adventure, or pleasure from life itself, so they have to invent these experiences in other ways. Whether such feelings come to them through gambling, getting "high," "tuning out," or becomming overinvolved with the Internet, their work, their hobbies, or anything else, there is often a lack of other pleasures that drive people (at least in part) to crave pleasure from their addictive behaviors.
This becomes important when you try to end your addiction. If you try to eliminate your main source of pleasure in life without being able to replace it immediately with other sources of pleasure, it is doubtful you will be able to stay away from your addictive behavior very long.
I remember one woman I treated for cigarette addiction, who claimed that she couldn't bring herself to give up smoking even though she had successfully done so in the past and even though she sufferred no serious withdrawal symptoms when she did so. After a few sessions of counselling, we discovered that the main reason she was smoking was that her husband had totally dominated her and took away everything in her life that she considered "her own." The only thing he couldn't take away from her was her smoking--it was the only area left she could claim as her's.
Before this woman was able to end her smoking habit, which she did, she first had to reclaim much of the "territory"--both physical and emotional--her husband had wrested from her. While this was not an easy process, and while it didn't happen over night, she knew that she would never be able to relinquish the behavior of smoking if it remained, in fact, her only source of satisfaction.
D. Underlying Deficiencies in Coping and Life Management Skills
Addiction should never be viewed as a problem in and of itself. Addictions are much better viewed as a symptom of other underlying problems and deficiencies. This is why most addiction therapies are so universally unsuccessful.
To cure most addictions, you must look beyond the addiction itself and deal with underlying deficiencies in coping and life management skills that have given rise to it.
For example, people who become addicted to alcohol and other drugs usually have serious deficiencies in their life management, stress management, and interpersonal skills. Early on in life, they experience a great deal of pain and personal suffering that they can't figure out how to deal with effectively. This drives them to seek external relief and comfort in the form of alcohol or other substances. As this pattern of behavior gets repeated over time, their bodies become physically addicted to the chemical substance, and the addiction then becomes even more difficult to end.
The same is true for cigarette addiction. Many people find that smoking helps them cope with stress or keep their weight under control. Even if they are successful at beating the physical part of cigarette addiction, they often quickly return to smoking because they fail to improve their repetoire of coping skills.
So if you are trying to deal with the problem of Internet Addiction, or any addiction for that matter, you should ask yourself the following questions:
1. What stress management skills or life management skills do I lack that led me to become addicted?
2. What problems in life do I have that my addiction helps me to avoid or to "solve."
3. What would I need to learn how to do in order to let go of my addictive behavior?
4. What "benefits" or payoffs am I getting from my addictive behavior?
E. Giving in to Temptation
Once you decide to eliminate an established addiction, there are certain requirements and pitfalls you must be prepared for. One of these is dealing with temptation.
Whenever you try to stay away from something that previously gave you great pleaure, you're going to be tempted to return to that behavior. Sometimes, the temptation may be very strong. But even if it is, you must be prepared to resist it.
Temptation, in truth, is nothing more than a powerful internal feeling state (i.e., a desire). It is often accompanied by thoughts as well, that are designed to make you "cave in" and satisfy your intense internal cravings.
You, however, are always much stronger than any of your internal thoughts, feelings, or other internal states. You have the power to consistently ignore or to choose not to respond to your thoughts and demanding feelings. Thoughts and feelings have very little power at all (even though many people mistakenly "feel" that their thoughts and feelings are much more powerful than they).
Once you take on the challenge of dealing with any addiction, you will need to marshall your ability to successfully deal with temptation. If you don't have a sense that you have this power to succeed, you can use your addiction as an opportunity to discover that you really do have this important capability.
F. Failing to Keep Your Word
In order to change any established habit, be it an addiction or not, you must be able to give your word to yourself and KEEP YOUR WORD NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS. All behavior change involves deciding what actions are needed to break the established pattern and then taking those actions on a consistent basis over time. This is just another way of saying "you must give your word to yourself every day that you will do this or that or not do this or that. Then you must keep your word, no matter what happens around you or what temptations or seductive excuses you encounter."
Many addiction treatment programs fail because addicts are not empowered to rehabilitate their ability to give and keep their word. Many addicts, experience has shown, are very accomplished liars. Their promises and statements to others often can't be trusted. And their ability to keep promises to themselves is similarly impaired.
Without the ability to give and keep your word, especially to yourself, you've got very little chance of curing any addiction. On the other hand, if you make this goal part of your overall game plan, you may be able to emerge from your addiction a stronger, healthier, and more trustworthy human being.
G. Failing to Do What May Be Necessary
Be very clear about this one important point: ALL ADDICTIONS CAN BE CURED AS LONG AS PEOPLE AGREE TO DO WHATEVER MIGHT BE NECESSARY. One reason most addictions appear to be "incurable" is because people shy away from the types of actions that are often neccessary.
What types of actions are these? Well, they can be numerous, diverse, and highly specific for any individual. They might include any or all of the following (using Internet Addiction as an example):
1. Setting an absolute schedule or time limit for how much time you spend on the 'Net.
2. Forcing yourself to stay away from the 'Net for several days at a time.
3. Placing self-imposed computer "blocks" on certain types of services.
4. Setting an absolute policy for yourself of never signing on to the net at work (unless this is required for your job).
5. Establishing meaningful (but not harmful) consequences for yourself for failing to keep your word.
6. Applying these self-imposed consequences until you do regain your ability to keep your word consistently.
7. Forcing yourself to do other things instead of spending time on the net.
8. Resolving to learn how to derive other more healthy sources of pleasure in life to replace or even exceed the pleasure you got from being on the 'Net.
9. Asking for help whenever you feel you are not being successful.
10. Avoiding people or environments that might encourage you to return to your addictive behavior.
While these are not the only actions that may be called for, many of them will work for a majority of individuals. The point is that in order to cure an addiction, you've got to be willing to do things that may seem drastic or outrageous but not harmful to yourself or others.
Several years ago, I learned about a weight loss counsellor who conducted very successful group weight loss programs for people who had failed miserably many times before. One strategy this counsellor used was both drastic and outrageous. She had every member of the group make a list of the three worst, most despicable, most morally bankrupt organizations they knew of. She then made each member of the group promise to donate $25 to one of the organizations on their list for every week that they failed to lose at least one pound. This strategy worked like a charm. But on their own, most members of the group would never have considered self-imposing such a powerful motivator.
So if you have a history of failing to make any type of desired behavior change, all this may mean is that you weren't willing to do what is necessary. All addictions (and other dysfunctional behaviors) can ultimately be cured. It's just a matter of figuring out what specific actions will work (and will not cause you or others harm) and then executing those actions despite any thoughts or feelings you might have to the contrary.
Failing to Anticipate and Deal With Relapses
No matter how much initial success you have in eliminating an addiction, unintended relapses are just around the corner. Something unexpected might happen in your life or you might otherwise succumb to a moment of weakness.
Good addiction treatment plans anticipate that such relapses commonly occur and prepare individuals to deal with them successfully.
One thing they emphasize is that "relapse" is not synonymous with "failure." A relapse does not mean that you have failed in your efforts to cure yourself of an addiction. If you stay away from cigarettes for 3 months and then smoke again for two days in a row, you can view this as a "failure" if you want, or you can focus on the fact that of the last 92 days, you successfully abstained for 97% of them. That's pretty good.
The trick is to keep 2 days from becoming 5 days, or 5 days from becoming 10 days, etc. Here you will need a game plan to keep an occasional relapse from triggering a return to the addiction.
Before you begin to work on curing your addiction, decide in advance what you will do once you are successful and suffer a minor relapse. Have an outrageous game plan in mind that you hope you will never need to use, but that you are committed to execute if the need ever arises. Then go into this "emergency mode" within 1-2 days of suffering a minor relapse.
Include in your emergency game plan at least three powerful people you can call to give you strong support. Have several self-imposed consequences in mind, and apply them to yourself quickly before things get seriously out of hand. If you jump on these relapses quickly and effectively, and if you don't beat yourself up for such minor regressions, you should be able to reestablish your cure plan.

I think that the Internet is an addiction!! many people can't living without it, it's a real case. according to studies, only in U.S, from 6 to 10% suffer this addiction. take care if you have the problem and you don't want accept it (stage of denial) jeje, it's a joke.

ingles dijo...

hello. I'M Warquidea.

Wow teacher is well over its special report, but you are absolutely right about the Additions.
I think that the addition is a disease that is curable, but not with the simple act of saying "I leave I want to be the Internet Addict, cigarette ", ect .. but with deeds not words. because often addicted lose the support of their loved ones and that is where the problem is that more then cling to their vices.

ingles dijo...

well... i think that the net is a dangerous addiction because can be a big problem leave this kind of addiction, i have the same hairo´s opinion because i was an addicted but i can leave it in a good time, but other people can´t leave it whit a easy facility, well i talking a lot so see you... att.glory.

Bismark Montero dijo...

Hi I'm Bismark Montero and I am going to talk with reference to the first paragraph.

In part l'm agree with this paragraph but not an 100%. for the reason of that it is an addiction like the others, I am agreement in this part. but I do not agree in the part that say that it is not different to treat than the other addictions for the simple reason of that There are Addictions that merit a process more intensive than other.

Hello, students

Let's talk about steep B.Failing to Ask for Help
why people affected are very reluctant to ask for help? and what happend when they do it? What are the mistake most addicts make when they do decide to seek help?

Remember that you can give your personal opinion and is okay.

I will be waiting for your answers

Prof. Annfrank Robinson

Samuel Mancebo dijo...

Well, I think that the addicteds to something have fear to ask for help, because sometimes they don't want to accept that they have an addiction. When they seek help is in a small way, because they feel scared that the other people know their addiction.. I hope you like this opinion.

Samuel Mancebo

ingles dijo...

Well, I agree with the author when he says that the main reason that seem incurable addiction is that most addicts are not willing to do whatever is necessary to end their problem.

Hello Marcelo,

I like you opinion, but give me more

Prof. Annfrank Robinson

Hairo mercedes dijo...

The people that are addict to something never seek help for fear to be rejected, they prefer don't say the problem, but when they're decide to speak about it, seek the wrong help, seek help in the family, friends, persons that maybe don't know what is the solution for the problem or addiction, that is a serious mistake.

Anaury dijo...

Hello. My name is Anaury
I don’t share your first opinion Samuel because the Net can become an addiction, and until has a scientific name is ‘discomgooglelación’ according ‘20minutos.es’. The steep A is denial that I’m totally agree with this because every person that has an addiction always denies it is the same that telling a drunk that is drunk or a crazy that is crazy because this always going to say that this is a lie. If you want to know if you're an addict just visit this link ‘http://www.eutimia.com/tests/iad.htm’ and if your score is more that 60, take care.

Bismark Montero dijo...

Hi I'm Bismark Montero And I'm going to comment on the questions displayed.

good to these questions are very common betwen people with diseases and problems. I think that people hide their problems for fear of be rejected by the society or by their relatives and took the decision of close in their problems,I think that these decision harms them as humans. There are others who accept their disease and ask for help and I think that they have more opportunity of improve their diseases because they're receiving support emosional.

Anaury dijo...

Hello. My name is Anaury
Steep B
The majorities of addicts like I said they don’t accept their addiction and for this they don’t search help to overcome this problem and when they search help are of wrong person, of person that helping to continue in this addiction, instead of search help of professionals people, of people qualified in the topic, as the psychologists, this people if they help to go out of this so serious and serious problem.

Hairo mercedes dijo...

remember... I said that (with relation to Samuel)but was a Joke. well, Anaury your opinion is good, I'm agree with you. Something that I'd like add is that the addicts (at Internet in this case)many times don't know or don't think that they have a problem, for that, don't seek help because they think that all is O.K., that their situation is normal, but when they see that all isn't well, prefer hide it and don't see the consequences. Don't end with the problem at time will make more difficult let the addiction

Francisco dijo...

Hello gays,it is my first time hear. I thing about this topic that is very intersting, i´m acording with the questions when say: ¨What "benefits" or payoffs am I getting from my addictive behavior?¨ About internet we can to get a lot of benefits, for example the internet can be used for study or talk with a friend or family member, but, if you are addicted to internet you lose something, can be the afective relations with your family, neigbors, friends or your physical apareances you can be a coach potatoe, for example look at Samuel. I remember that i was asking what he do and he sayed me nothing only chat, and surf in internet. well, this is my opinion, i way that will be great and interesting.

ingles dijo...

Helloooooooo im masiel if you want SHIRALIS....

Well really i read the text and i can see that are many addiction incluiding the net, but i want to say that really i dont find emotion in the net but many people love the computer and spend a lot time in this machine,hear is that this time can be an addiction...... the net is a simple thing that if you go to use please have control if you dont control your body wait an addiction..... teacher you are a VACANOOOOOOOO....

Samuel Mancebo dijo...

Well me again... I see that you got my opinion by the wrong way. In my case i think that i used the internet more than the sufficent, but it's for i'm new in the city and in my neigborhood i don't know people, i think the net is an addiction, but i think not for me, because one time before, when i was about 12 i really had an internet addiction, but, with the time the internet borred me, and slowlly i was leaving it apart. Now, i used it so much, but somedays i don't use it. If you want ask to hairo, he knows what i mean.

Francisco Javier dijo...

Shiralis, if the net is a simple shing, why we have control with it?

Hairo mercedes dijo...

again with the poor Samuel jaja; well i'm going to clarify this. Like i said before,Samuel isn't addict, only was a joke, what part of joke nobody understand?? and shiralis is Professor no teacher... and, the professor didn't write the article, he only post this.

Francisco Javier dijo...

hey Mancebo take it easy, the internet can be good for you, is an example, you are the only person that i know that use the internet more than all classroom, Hairo sayed, and i´m going to do a copy paste ´´The people that are addict to something never seek help for fear to be rejected, they prefer don't say the problem´ i think that you know that you are a net addicted, but how you can see, it isn´t bad for you, for you isn´t an addiction becouse is good in yor life, but remember you can have problem with yor eyes.

Samuel Mancebo dijo...

Samuel Mancebo dijo...

Well, how i said in all my comments, i think that i don't have an addiction, but, if you think that i have one, you can help me. I'd be grateful. Well my partners, thanks for all your suggestions.

ingles dijo...

I'm me again... Marcelo we're kidding with you so don't be angry. About the asks that the teacher wrote i think that all kinds of addiction how have the people when you asks if are they addicted? The common answer is you're kidding of course no... I'm not addicted , and if i'm a addicted i can leave it whenever i dediced. I used to spend to 6-8 hours at the net but now i use it when is necessary. I think that when you have an addiction you fell afraid to request help to somebody or don't want to accept their addiction.well i'm talking a lot again so bye bye my friends and my darling professor, we'll in touch. See ya.

ingles dijo...

Hey, guys i wrote the last message that begins: i'm me again. So i,m glory i forgot write my name.

Francisco Javier dijo...

well, Samuel can you understan me? so i don't think that you have problem with your addictions. i took you like example becouse you have an addiction, but you don't have problem with it. you're very intelligent, you should feel you right becouse you the number one in this blog, you're the most net addicted that i know in ITLA.

Francisco Javier dijo...

it's for you students and professor, if you are a net addicted you should share help, but remember only if you have problem with addiction, not like Samuel, he's an addicted but doesn't have problem with it. i think that in ITLA there is a lot of net addicted and they think that is necesary for study but before there isn't internet also computer and the people were more intelligent. i recomend that you should use books for study and some times use the internet only if is necesary.

Daniel dijo...

Hello, sorry for not answering before but I had some problems.

Well i´m going to begin with the first paragraph; I think that important is more exact to refer to the network, addict is a very strong word, in my case I only use the internet when is necessary, my opinio is the same that of samuel.

Oh my goodness, this is a camp of battle! Javier, you should go soft with Samuel already,let him relax jajajajaja. you don't say that He don't have a problem and later say that He is the most addict to the net, because that's a serious problem; well... we should better pay attention to topic y let quiet to Samuel (hey Samuel, you have to pay me $US 5.00 for that).

Samuel Mancebo dijo...

Well, i want to touch the paragraph C. I'm according in the totality with this. My grandfather is addict to smoke, and he can't live without this, and when he isn't smoking he is doing nothing, he doesn's have other pleasures. I think it's true, and this is other reason for i know i'm not an addicted to the net, because i enjoy to the others pleasures (a lot of this). Well, it's so late right now, and tomorrow i'm going to meet with all of you. Now it's 11:00 P.M.

About paragraph b.
Failing to Ask for Help
why people affected are very reluctant to ask for help? and what happend when they do it? What are the most addicts make mistake when they do decide to seek help?
I think it's that addicts sometimes believe that if they ask for help, people are going to REJECT and that they are not going to want to help.

hello, I'm gelen

I think of all this that navigation on internet can be hooked to the whole world, no matter the age, cultural or social level.
I think surf for hours on the Internet is a mania, more frequent in us (as) the young, most students.

Some men spend their day online, accessing pornographic sites, and when he returns home does not want to know his wife. And some women completely neglected his family and get depressed when they move away from the computer.

I think people have this defect of the internet imagine that her life revolves only in the virtual world.

This is a personal opinion.

Solange dijo...

Almost never the family or the friends can never help an addict to leave your vice however much these want to help him or her. Because of it professionals and special centers of rehabilitation exist for this.

For example in our country exists "Hogar Crea " an institution without ends of profit that helps the addicts to the drug that they want to leave your vice and to join to the society.

Solange dijo...

In my opinion every addiction is harmful because it depend on something as vital part of our life is pretty dangerous, but I think the internet is an addiction minor compared to alcohol, drugs or snuff.

Of course, that doesn’t mean that the internet can't be harmful because spend all day surfing on the internet can make you a person isolated, unfriendly and sedentary.


Solange Dominguez

ingles dijo...

Is true that the net is very important for example when we need to do a homework or a investigation we can use!!! but has too a lot negatives things... Really the net is necesary but are many people like we that don't give the correct use, in this century teens, children, dont think in the bad things in the consequenses of it,and is hear that begin using the net and looking information without know that hear is the danger... im sure when the net come dont exist this videos porn, this death videos but the people doing that and many people today are addicted to look that..... in my opinion i believe that net isimportant but in excess can be dangerous....... shiralissssss

ingles dijo...

I'm not quite agree with Marcelo,but nor i'm agree because it is true that the Internet can be become in addiction, but only if the people avus its use.It is more advisable that controls their use as stated in the Article.

Att;Aduarys

ingles dijo...

According to authors like Echeburúa and Cols (1998), Griffiths(1997) Young (1996) is developing an Internet addiction disorder similar to the problems that appear with other addictive behaviors as gambling, work ... These defined as a phenomenon or disorder pautativo that depends both on the medium as the message.

My question is; is the addiction to the Internet or their content?

JOHNNY dijo...

internet addiction, that depends on the use of that, if you spend a lot of time in the internet looking for class, working or doing some important things you may be confused, becouse you think im here, "i have 6 hour here but is doing job or classes", but if you go back and see why you have 7 hour there you're going to awake to the real world, you did a half of your work or cass and thte other 3 hours you was chatting, looking for some other activity, playing, the point is, if your work have something to be whit the internet, in your home you're no going to use it, becouse your
main is going to thing that's working. What i want to say whit this, the addiction always find a excuse to be there. If your an addicted, you aluays have something to do there or something to find there.

JOHNNY dijo...

By the way, im not an addicted, if you see, sometimes i am there on messenger and you try to talk me and im not there, mi computer and my cell phone always are online, if im in home and they're turned on they connect whitout my permission, im an addicted to the technology, my stuff has internet access, thats why i use a lot the internet.

Julissa Margarita dijo...

professor, in what I think the passage of the denial can not be true, because if someone asks me are you addicted to the net? and I will not answer that, as we understand the serious denial but if it is not really never know when it is the truth

Hairo mercedes dijo...

So Johny, do you want to say that if someone use the internet of correct form is fine? because if is that, can be. There is occasions in that someone don't want to work a lot of time, but your Job requires that, in this situation we can't say "that person is an addict". So is important that we make an observation and let's see how that person uses his time; of this form we can saying if is an addict or not.

Julissa Margarita dijo...

in the paragraph that says one should keep his word and leave the temptations back is very difficult for those people who really do not know they have this addiction, so they tend to say that they are going to leave but never do, because they are not considered addicted to the Internet.

Julissa Margarita dijo...

for you hairo with h. I think that the time determines whether a person is addicted or not because if you spend more than 5 hours glued to a screen and very rarely do other tasksfor fun , and it make you an addict.
because i know people who cannot live without even a moment to chat and need see absurdities on the screen to feel better.

neftaly dijo...

i read the first and third pagraph and i am agree because being addicted to drug ,alcohol and other addictions affect their fisical healfh the internet addiction can affect their mental health.

and according to fourth pagraph,i am agree because in the mayority of case the addicted deny your addiction problem,and they say that they can handle with the problem.

Francisco Javier dijo...

I have a coment about the woman that is smoking, i´m feeling bad because this history remember me my father, he´s addicted to smoking and when he can´t smoking is another person, some days he can´t eat, i have with he because i don´t like the smoking and i don´t talk with he, so the smoking is bad for me. well i think that the net addiction is not too bad, the smoking addiction is more dangerous than internet addiction.

neftaly dijo...

for you julissa, i am diegree to you because if someone asks to you if you have addiction problem and you have problem,and you deny , in time, your friends that really know you notice your problem.

neftaly dijo...

for you samuel, i am agree to you because if you have any problem must not be addiction problem and you do cannot notice anyone that know you can give you a suggestion.

neftaly dijo...

for you bismark to you but people that have problem like addiction no speak about it not only they going to feel regetted but also they do not see their problem as a problem to them and even if a problem , they do not really care.

Francisco Javier dijo...

i´m according with you Neftali, well you are according with the reality, so i´m going to aport more about that:
the alcohol and the others addictions can affect the physical and mental health.
The internet can affect that, but i think that internet addiction is the least dangerous because you only can affect your eyes and the relations with your family, friends and other things.

anabel dijo...

hi guys...not gays...
my opinion about this topic...
now a day the internet addiction wolrldwide has affected a lot of people, addicts persons can spend more than 12 hours a day, almost the 90% get fat by the reason that do not make exesices, just sit down in front of a pc screen, eating fast food even forgetting the studies, is a wrong that parents bay pc to the children without previous supervition, the have to take care what the children are doing...

JOHNNY dijo...

i agree anabel's pharagraph, that's true, specially if the children is begining to be addict, parents may be carefuly whit theyr children becouse in some age the curiosity make they open and check some hots sites, if the parents aren't checking that becomes in the real addiction, not the internet in general, that kind of pages, specially the teenegers.

Hello Francisco,

Watch out for you using of English.
Before you send me something, check what are you writing and remember that we have been talking about addiction to the net;focus your opinions on this, but Samuel.

ingles dijo...

I'm me again and again and again so... My other opinion about the test is that if you are a person with a balance you never going to get an addiction so that means that if you don't use the net for a long time you aren't an addicted, many sicologies say that''less time using the net less can be the 'addiction'. it can be a cure, but i think too that the parents can stop this kind of addiction of course with a help to someone specialisty, i'm talking a lot again so bye bye my friends att.glory(now i'm not forgot put my name)lolzzzz...

maria heroina dijo...

Hairo mercedes dijo...

atAbout your questions glory, I think that is the same because the addicts use the internet for enjoy, for feel pleasures and satisfy your need. When someone is addict to something and this someone wanna resolve problems, forget of the world, the only thing they feel that can make them feel well is their addiction.

Education World dijo...

Hello guys no "gays",
I've read a lot (all your comments one by one )and I have seen that you were talking on steeps C and D
so let's talk about steep E. Giving in to Temptation,

Once you decide to eliminate an established addiction, which are the requirements and pitfalls you must be prepared for?

Remember to be objetive!

Anaury dijo...

Hello. My name is Anaury
Step E
This is one of the very serious steps when they want end with the addiction, because many of these people don’t have the courage and strength to cope with the temptations that are presented and when they cede to the temptation, think everything is finished and they don’t have the strength to keep fighting and that they do is still in the same addiction and can’t overcome it and whether you have the advice of the wrong person is that there are still more in it.

Hairo mercedes dijo...

O.K. I'm going to comment about the stage E. First, one must be determinated to tackle the problem, try to stay away of it,that is a requirement; But that always is not easy because sometimes there will be the temptation of follow doing that, in some people their wishes can be stronger than them, but one must be stronger than the wishes. once you can have the control of them, will can follow ahead.

Daniel dijo...

I think the net adiction is something real; the Internet has turned into a very necessary tool; we are responsible for the new generation of technology but I believe that we must do it with control.

Remember that to depend on the technology to hundred per cent is dangerous. Think it

maria heroina dijo...

hi my name is maria

I am agree with the paragraph d since the addiction only is the cosecuencia of our problems which are reflected in a part of our life already be sentimental or emotional.
I think that the Internet is an addiction since the majority of persons uses it as a way of easing or of search of company that fills the emptiness that takes within this one it is my opinion. It brings over of the Internet though this does not fulfill in all the personas but we all can suffer of.

maria heroina dijo...

Hi, anabel

I am agree with you Internet other addictions that plough not mas that the cosecuencia of other problems.

It cause remove these types of .Consequence in the persons and it I say so it does few was seeing an article on one of the consequence of the obvesidad in the young men and in the major persons and the majority of I them marry debia to the lack of attention that sentia the persons and this it was reflecting in an excess of use of the Internet.

And this haci to eat over-excited and to happen pass often mas from the prudent steals in front of the PC.

maria heroina dijo...

Well samuel the fact that your is not does not leave the closed door in order that other pue it to be I you it say so conosco many persons' cases through that it lives 24 hours of the day online and if it does not do it feels troublesome I say it to you so I have a cousin who dawns contectado and already it gives him the same domir and not domir though this does not happen in the whole world the fact that happens in some all that already because of it is an addiction as any other one.

Anaury dijo...

When one want to stop the addiction to the Internet isn’t as strong as they say because when you want you can, and if you want to break this addiction can achieve, one is the owner of our thinking, and what these Sentim, We can overcome the temptations unclear whether such a far from something that feels such temptations.

ingles dijo...

nowdays there are many things tha are becoming the persons addict "for day people have been addicted to things like nicotine, gamgling or alcohol but actually many people has been become in addicted to the net

fatima ozoria dijo...

In my opinion: any addiction already is to the drugs, the alcohol, the cigarettes, the game and the Internet are serious addictions, though a few mas that different as those of drugs and the game, I believe that there is no major addiction mas serious that these, the Internet on the other hand is an addiction that I consider it to be not so serious, but if harmful and very common in these times that one has developed with the boom of the technology.

fatima ozoria dijo...

Good the first step to admit that a problem of addiction is had is acepatar such a problem and then then to look for the necessary help. The family is a key point here, I think that this with support and dedication it can help the addict, though also it is necessary that these look for help in special institutions that are basically to treat this type of problems.

fatima ozoria dijo...

My next coment is on the case E:
To conquer a temptation is something very strong and difficult, is to reject something that in certain moment gave to you "pleasure" and that also I damage you very much, fodder that to reject a temptation is an act worth resting for this way saying it, is something really amazing that not we all have the aptitude to do.

Solange dijo...

Solange dijo...

To fall down in an addition is easy but to leave it is very difficult because always the temptation of relapsing will exist.

The best way of avoiding a relapse is to repeat oneself phrases and thoughts until oneself believe them like " I can ", " It damages to me", " I can live without it " and others.

Our mind has a huge power on the rest of the body and if you say to you youself that you can you were achieving it but if you say to yourself that you can't then you weren't achieving anything.

fatima ozoria dijo...

Answering what Anabel says I agree with that persons exist that your addiction to Internet is so big that they stop doing things as important as it being to eat, to sleep... In addition I want to add that to be so involved in the world of the Internet has his your risks, for the children and teenagers for example, these without the supervision of his(her,your) parents or of an adult they can know across the net all kinds of delinquents and get without knowing it in anything so disgusting as it is the world of the infantile pornography

Solange dijo...

The Internet is a great resource with which we all know but do not give the proper use. If we use the internet for things strictly necessary then we are giving to good use.

But we can not spend all day surfing on the net just for fun, they say that idleness is the mother of all vices and it is true because a person passing more than 12 hours browsing the network can not be doing anything good.

I agree with my classmate who think that if the internet in an addiction but I also think that the Internet is a great resource with which we all know but do not give the proper use. If we use the internet for things strictly necessary then we are giving to good use.

Solange dijo...

Nobody can try to finish with your addition from one day to the next this process can be very long depending on the degree of commitment that the person has.

As the experts say in the matter when a this addict beginning to recover he or she can't cut with your addition at one stroke but it must be made slowly for example one by addict to the alcohol that takes all day 7 beers of be to be reducing slowly the dose for example one day one takes 6, the following one 5, the following one 4, until there comes the day in which only he or she was taking beer once a month since already I stop being a custom or a common habit and your body of depends on the beer like before.

fatima ozoria dijo...

Supporting what Solange said: I agree with that the intenet is a great tool, but I must say that if we do not give him the appropriate use we can turn into addicts or simply persons that we feed the desires of not doing anything of alone profit for happening hours and hours in the same thing stopping doing our homework, important things.
It is necessary to put attention in this and only use the Internet to do useful things that have profit

Hello, I'm Gelen.

everything in life is based on sacrifice, that is why many addicts are afraid to make sacrifices for their own sake and do not want to admit their mistake that they are addicted and you do not mind losing everything for their addiction.

Helena Matute said in http://biblioweb.sindominio.net/escepticos/adiccion.html
There are growing virtual clinics that make good business trying on-line addiction to the Internet. However, addiction to the Internet does not exist.
she says in her second place, nothing seems to be the famous addiction to the Internet addictions that are described in the manuals of psychology and psychiatry.

according to what I could read the article published by Dr. Matute, I contradict myself, saying that addiction is not measured by the time they spend in front of a screen, and according to their years of work made him realize that this unusual addiction can compare in connection with the great addiction of some while reading the newspaper, it's just a need for new knowledge and to know that everything is in one place and time is not vast.

I think that is a good report because the addiction to internet is a new disease of this new age. The majority of the people don’t know it, they think that is normal, and that you are more than 8 hours in front of a pc, without know that they are addicted to internet. And I liked the text because in this text you get a lot of information about this disease.

one person that is addict to the net we dont have to say that this person is sick,no this person isnt, he just needs help.but we do not why he is addict, could be he doesnt have parents,or friends,or girlfriend if is a man ,or could be that this person when was young nobody wawnted play with him.can be.the trust is that there are mamny way for be an net addict.

Julissa Margarita dijo...

and to finish my participaion on this blog, I give you my final opinion, who thinks that the Internet is addictive or that it thinks it is not too, this may generate too confuncion.
for me to find out almost all of us have experienced searching on the Internet is nothing more than
Search for what you do not know. what if all we know, is that if this is not so much the internet has expanded our lives would be more difficult and would have no free expression as we have now. stop addicts who do what they want and if you are that nobody cares. and this is my final point.

ArgeniJam dijo...

Well my parners like you said them formely the internet is not a addition and don´t exist. I recomend this link for that you look that the internet is not a addiction:

arturo dijo...

I’m Arturo Mejia
I think that this article show the ways how do you know if are you addicted to the internet, I think that the majority of the people that are addicted to one thing and don’t know it, because the first symptom of the addition is think that don’t have nothing, for example when you ask to people that have problems with alcohol, - have you had problem with alcohol ? or why do you drink ? the majority of the people always answer you , I don’t have problems , I only drink one in while, I don’t have problems with the alcohol, in my opinion is that worst problem when you have a addition and you don’t accept it and you say “ I m good , I don’t have nothing ” this is the first step by fix the problem accept is the most important.

wandy dijo...

hello yulissa i was reading something about it and i think that person do not think if i use the internet every day for to make my homework,to chat,dowload video and music ect,i will want to surf on the internet even if i do not need to use it.that is when i start to be an addict to the net.

arturo dijo...

I’m Arturo Mejia
My opinion is according with the text is that when you have a addiction not only to the internet, whatever addition; you have look help with professional people in this area because this type of disease are very hard to know if you have it because , always that you are addict a one thing you fell good make it without know that you are addict, but this I think that is have better look help with a professional people like this text say.

arturo dijo...

I’m Arturo Mejia.

I think that the additions are new disease that the technology in this case influences a lot of , but not only you can be addict to internet because now there are a lot of the addition in the world all thing that you do without have control and without limit is a addition because all, for example you can be addict to watch tv without know, you can be addict to eat, you can be addict to want stay in shape without know it, by me there are a lot of addictions in our day after day that we are addict and we without it

saul de la rosa dijo...

I think that when you are addited to the internet is because you have more time and you liked it. my partners have differents opinions about the theme but i respet each opinion.In my case i don't have much time and only i connet for do some interesting.

Remember that the knowledge give us power

wandy dijo...

hello i was reading in google about the addiction the net and i can to say when you are for more than three hour on the internet every day,congratulation you are addict to the net.other people said that that the internet is not an addiction ,the addiction is when you are addict to the video games,talk about sex,listen to music , watch video and other thing, you use the internet for to do all this and you surf more than three hour ,the addiction is in what are you waching,writing or listening.the recomendation to the addict person is use the net for one hour ,then the next month use it just for thirty minute,and the next month less and less.until use it just when is necessary .

ingles dijo...

Today, for many people the Internet is a world of
rival from the real world, because some people prefer to spend more time on the Internet at
real world and while they do so will isolate the
world around them. This can even lead to a
person to destroy his life. However, the addict
connected continues despite the knowledge of the
problems that entails.

So if we know that, the best method to avoid
into the networks of the Internet is that from this moment
monitor the time that what we use.

Internet addiction causes physical problems like tendinitis, eye dryness, loss in visual acuity, vascular problems because of the short movement, changes in the cycle of sleep and eating disorders.
On the outskirts of Beijing, China in the General Military Hospital has installed a center to treat "ciberadictos." At the top is Colonel Tao Ran, an official of the People's Liberation Army who years ago became famous for his techniques to cure the heroinómanos.The rehabilitation center for treatment ciberadictos offers an unorthodox that combines military training with mild electric shocks and consultations with psychologists.

The E paragraph is very intersting and has an important information...... is the same that i said if you like anything be carefull, be control with your body, and is true that temptation is a problem in a case for example in the net you say if im going to the net to do homework,and i dont going to conect or chat because if i doit i know that cant do my work and can be problem i can sure the temptation is more strong that our body control.... Many people are reading this and said the net is not an addiction, is not a problem i can be 5 or 6 hours conect, and i can be addicted,, never... i can see bad things, but in a moment of your life you can be sure that you going to do something like you look some time in the net..... the temptation is very strong but is very easy do bad things if you do something a lot,..... Be carefull with nettttttttt........ shiralissssss

Hairo mercedes dijo...

If someone is an addict to the net, what must doing?
the first step that should give is accept that is an addict,it's the first, why? if He/She don't accept that has a problem will be impossible try of resolve it. Second, ask the correct help of persons or rather of specialists in the subject that known
or can try their problem, don't ask help in family and friends, it's wrong. Third,it's very, very important keep your word, I considered, think, that this step it's the main, maybe you ask why, i'm going to answer why. Persons with this problem (addiction to something)when give your word, keep it, is possible that can defeating the problem because nothing, nothing will do that He/She fall again, it's for their determination, even they transform in new persons, more strongs with more determination. It's true that some persons have come back to the addiction again, but it's because don't have the capacity of keep your promise. Fourth, do the necessary for let the addiction, have the force of will.

This is my recommendation, I hope that you like

They must learn to control the temptation, a form to do it, is to change the habit, do different things in the hours that you are accustomed to realize the addiction in question.

maria heroina dijo...

hi, fatima

On your comment you must not say that the Internet is not an addiction so dangerous. because with simple things is that it begins to enter the world of addiction.

My opinion on the Internet that this is an addiction controllable when we fight .but is equal to or worse than the other addictions when Unpray it was found that at 95 percent of people who either been an addiction to gambling or the Internet ploughs the futures candidate for any other type of addiction.

This is not to say that the Internet is to two-edged weapon which we must learn to use.

Hello I'm Bismark E. Montero

Well I think that once eliminated the addiction or are trying to eliminate.The people move as a torture, because as I said in the previous paragraph is already a habit for them. and for example in areas of Internet addiction the people as main temptation I think that would be involved in the technological innovations, for the simple reason of that inmediately the technology innovative the addict want to experiment, using, and may be a candidate to return to the addiction if he was not monitoring.is for that in the previous paragraph I said that is one of the parties that should be given more monitoring to the people.

the internet. many individuals have begun overusing this new tool and are spending hours and hours on line. in fact, some psycologists have even labeled this overuse phenomenon as internet addictions. whether on- line addiction can be considered a true addiction is a question for medical researchers. I know persons that spend more than 15 and also 20 hours a day using the net and that is not normal

hello guys my name is luz del alba (guandule).

In the last paragraph I read that one has to put the same end to the addiction, but I think that it is not, that one has to seek helfrom another he said that? because if you always said you are going to leave something you never leave it without help from someone profesional hat is an example that what read in the preceding paragraphs.

my opinion is that we have to stop that is not always late.

good profesor and friends to thank all for all the support they have given me and thank you for everithing

know that I love him for heart

hi this is Ismael, hey.. the point is that in the internet there is so much information you would like to see, watch or listen to that you cant stop clicking and going through different pages,so when you dont have a clear view of what you are looking for, you might waste a lot of time just fooling around. for some people is very normal to spend all day in front of a computer. in my opinion some people have to, because of their lifestyle and job require them to keep updated so they need the internet, now you go beyond the necessity to the addiction whenever you put at side important things in life just for being wandering in the net. which is nonsense

Ismael.

ingles dijo...

nowadays is easy to become an addicted to the net because the better and easier way to have access to all kind of information is by the internet. many activities such as education, entertainment, and everything else your mind come up with is not a problem to get just because of the facility of the internet which is very helpful if you just keep it in that way.

ingles dijo...

hey..it`s Ismael one more time

Anaury dijo...

Hello. My name is Anaury
I go speak about Step F
I agree with this step because almost the majority of the people when they want to get out of addiction do promise many things, that in the end cann’t achieve because they fall into the temptation to return to their addiction, but if you manage to leave these people become more stronger, healthier and more trustworthy, and if they could get out of this problem can get out of another. Good bye

anabel dijo...

In the last two centuries the internet has been once of the most important invent in the world by the technology, it is a job key, but somemany people have token it as a game...some countries get it service for free to the citicens without take care the ages of everyone, almost all the youngs or teenagers get the addiction sick with this job way...

anabel dijo...

hi guys, this is my next comment...
the internet addiction is one of the sicks that has affected the worldwide
nation because it is opened for everybody...in some countries the internet is restricted like the tv, by the culture or the religions habitants as in some the Islamics countries...

Samuel Mancebo dijo...

Ok people.... To finish the article and the discussion about the net addiction, I agree about what all addictions are curable, only you have to propose yourself to cure it. I think that the condition to make a schedule about the time what you'll be in the internet is a good option, and try that don't fall in the temptation to use it more than the required time.

I wish you good luck, for the tomorrow exam.

Daniel dijo...

Well, as the topic G say, the addiction to the network is curable, but I believe that the first step in order that the person could receive the needy help is to admit that he is an addict, and also I think that there is no better ally to overcome it that youself, it is necessary to have willpower.

anabel dijo...

The country with most addiction problems in the US, the were the pioneer in use this job key, they do not only use it to work, they take it as an entertainment, then by this reason may become addicted...

JOHNNY dijo...

hi, i made my commentaries about children, becouse i was teacher of kids betweein 9 and 15 years old and i sow haw they spoke about the internet, 3 of each 5 had a computer and internet services, and i saw how they makes more and more deppendent of this service, there they playing, chatting, and there in the school just speak about this, what i want to say whit this, they always has time to use the net, to chat, to play online, but at time of do the homework they give an internet copy paste or nathing, not enougt time to do hoome work or just read what they give me in a piece of paper for homework, what i want to say whit this, the children of this time is more and more dependent of this and if the parents dont do enything our society is going to be wrong in the future, becouse wea are going to have people addicted to the net, and people whitout capacity of make somethings in his own way becouse they always use the compouter and the internet for all.

anabel dijo...

With this comment I finish my participation and my opinion in this information forum...It is once of the most important invent so many business people use this way to make their work operations because the vintage that offer this way is that you can be wherever and with a simple logging to your user, you may see all your deal or business...To the addicted people I recommend a psychology help because it may be a mind dangerous problem for a health person...psychologies say that the internet addiction is like a is similar like drugs addiction too, the parents have been taking care the kids about this problem, they know that it can be dangerous for the family...was a pleasure to change ideas with you all...

JOHNNY dijo...

hi, this is my last comment, im going to say something good about the net, there you can do anything, buy, sell, make investigations, meet friends, and a lot of other things.
in other way, this must be just a tool, just a part of our live a little part, why be sitted in front of a computer chatting whit your neigbor, you can go to his or her house and speak face to face is better and you can appreciate some sensations an apreciate better the frienship. to malke an investigation ffor a homework, "teacher i didnt do the hemowork becouse the energy dont letme turn on the internet", you can read a book, before when the internet was less common we read books and made investigations; buy things, if you need something less common ao hard to foud ok, but is more intertling to go to the mall and buy things, for example a pair off shoes, if you buy in internet you dont have a certenly of is the rigth, if you go to the shop you can try it, get a bigger one or a smoller, its better and that serve to distract your maind, what i want to say whit this, we have to be more naturals and use internet just for very neccesary things.

ingles dijo...

Is my last comentary and i can say thet net isn't bad but really use a lot is a big problem... i can recomended that is true is important but dont want to know more and only doing that you have to do...... be comntrol and i dont say that is bad to chat, or look any videos but hear is the probemmmmm.... Shiralis

Bernny dijo...

I agree with the author,because that this can become an addiction.

because everything is being done in excess and without control can become a problem.

Bernny dijo...

I agree with Anabel this is affecting the whole world, as this is open to everyone and sometimes we do not seize all these facilities, but they waste time become addicted to chat and do things that are not productive...

ingles dijo...

shiralis I agree with you, but I think you must be very careful with the internet, especially when it comes to chatting on the net because there are many sick and handcuffed, and can do whatever they want with the information that a given, or with which we write in the spaces we use. We need to know to whom we give information, or where we write.

Bernny dijo...

I also liked what he said Fatima "is a double-sided weapon," because there are things good and bad, we have many options, such as fun, or simply take advantage of the web `surf the web to pass the time, but when we became addicted to Internet? i leave you to homework...

Bernny dijo...

I disagree with Argenis, because the said "that the internet is not an addiction, but if a necessity", as I said earlier "is a double-side weapon".

is necessary but can be dangerous...

Bernny dijo...

here again:

The internet is one of the best inventions of man, and I think that we should educate more to the next generations to give good use and I hope that anyone of my colleagues is an Internet addict, and if someone is a (IA),should to speak now we can help you.

Thanks.
See ya...

Bismark Montero dijo...

Hi classmate this is my last participation, I am Bismark E. Montero and I come to commenting on the last step.

-According to my opinion I think that the ideal way to unleash of an addiction like this, it would be that the affected accept the addiction , to accept their illness and accept help of people trained to solve such problems I think that away of this decision the person to begin passing for a indefinite number of processes that have to overcome once made this process should be conducted that I think that it is free of the addiction.

Francisco Javier dijo...

i´m here again, well i was talking with my sister about the topic, she study psycology and she sayd me that some people that are net-addicted have preoccupations, for example if the last connection didn´t found they have a lot of Thoughts and don´t think any more!

we are young and we have take care because i was reading another text and i could see that the young can be more affected for this addiction than the adults.

well, i don´t have more ideas, only one: that the principal reason for the internet addiction is a dangerous addiction has been for pornography or the sex in the net. not more

neftaly dijo...

i agree to pagraph six that says that the best to do is to look for someone that knows about how to cure a addicted poeple like a professional or someone claims that has the ability but you you need to look for good resource in that person ,if no has keep keep looking for until you find him or her.

neftaly dijo...

for you eduardo , i agree with you in to other activities but if you have a problem like addiction you nerver overcome the problem along youn need to look for help.

ArgeniJam dijo...

Hello my classmates,
now I arrive with a lot of data about
addition to the Net.

According to one text that I´ve read in the
link that I showed in my last comment says
what and I think the same:

The addition to Net and the addictions that describes
the psicology and psychiatric don´t look alike. The internet is
a imperious like read the newspaper in the morning and maybe
you say that "But you waste a lot of time?
The answer to this questions is the next :
of curse, the people waste much time but read a newspaper or
watch tv waste much time without, nobody is addicted to read a
newspaper or watch tv.
but the nicotine is addicetive and we don´t waste much time.

ArgeniJam dijo...

wait..!
my friends I forget to say that
according to the DSM(American Psychiatric Association) is an association about mental disorder, a manual most user in the world to mental disorder and says that the net is very new to accept it like a addiction.

ArgeniJam dijo...

This is my last comment my parners,
the use to net is excessive but not addictive because
depend like you use the tecnology.

maria heroina dijo...

well, bimark not I am not agree with you with because the addiction to the Internet not this one dangerous as the other since I believe that if it is equal of dangerous that any addiction since when our routine of life tries to alter all has the same effect our emotions.

maria heroina dijo...

hi my name is maria

I am agree with the paragraph D since the addiction only is the consequence of our problems which are reflected in a part of our life already be emotional.
I think that the Internet is an addiction since the majority of persons uses it as a way of easing or of search of company that fills the emptiness that takes within this one it is my opinion. It brings over of the Internet though this does not fulfill in all the persons but we all can suffer of.

maria heroina dijo...

Hi, anabel

I am agree with you Internet other addictions that plough not more that the consequence the other problems.
It cause remove these types of Consequence in the persons and it I say so it does few was seeing an article on one of the consequence of the obesity in the young men and in the major persons and the majority of I them has to watch the lack of attention what have the persons and this it was reflecting in an excess of use of the Internet.

And ware total agree to eat over-excited and to happen pass often more from the prudent steals in front of the PC

Well samuel the fact that your is not does not leave the closed door in order that other because it to be I you it say so meet many persons' cases through that it lives 24 hours of the day online and if it does not do it feels troublesome I say it to you so I have a cousin who dawns online and already it gives him the same sleep and not sleep though this does not happen in the whole world the fact that happens in some all that already because of it is an addiction as any other one.
4 de noviembre de 2008 2:33

maria heroina dijo...

hi , Fatima

On your comment you must not say that the Internet is not an addiction so dangerous Because with simple things is that it begins to enter the world of addiction.

My opinion on the Internet that this is an addiction controllable when we fight .but is equal to or worse than the other addictions when it was found that at 95 percent of people who either been an addiction to gambling or the Internet ploughs the futures candidate for any other type of addiction.

This is not to say that the Internet is to two-edged weapon which we must learn to use.
