About This Book
Overview Addiction means uncontrollable usage and over dependence of something which finally affects the person’s normal life and activities. Addiction towards internet, which is also explained as pathological internet usage, is characterized as an individual’s failure to control his or her utilization of the Internet, which in the long run causes mental, social, school as well as work environment side effects in an individual’s life (Davis, 2001; Young and Rodgers, 1998). Addiction towards internet is an illumination for unmanageable, damaging utilization of this innovation and it is a warning sign that an individual is experiencing issues in controlling his or her internet use (Beard, 2002). An estimate by ‘Internet word stats’ revealed that the internet penetration rate today is 55.1% in the world and the growth is estimated at a whopping 1066%. (www.internetworldstats.com/stats.htm).  Addiction towards internet is an impulse control disorder which does not include intoxication (Young, 1998). The usage of intelligent screen media is widespread and for a few individuals leads to neurotic side effects that are phenomenological which are indications of an addictive issue. Different symptoms include anger, strain and nervousness (Goldberg, 1995); and also increased social maladjustment (Chandrashekara & D’Souza, 2013). Internet addiction disorder (IAD) is quickly turning into a concern of the prevalent psychological wellbeing all over the world.
