    John M. Grohol, Psy.D.
    February, 1999; Last revision: In process (March, 2003) Welcome to a resource for objective, useful information about Internet addiction , a theorized disorder.
    What is Internet Addiction Disorder (IAD)?
    What "Internet addiction disorder" (IAD) is still difficult to define at this time. Much of the original research was based upon the weakest type of research methodology, namely exploratory surveys with no clear hypothesis or rationale backing them. Coming from an atheoretical approach has some benefits, but also is not typically recognized as being a strong way to approach a new disorder. More recent research has expanded upon the original surveys and anecdotal case study reports. However, as I will illustrate below later, even these studies don't support the conclusions the authors claim. The original research into this disorder began with exploratory surveys, which cannot establish causal relationships between specific behaviors and their cause. While surveys can help establish descriptions of how people feel about themselves and their behaviors, they cannot draw conclusions about whether a specific technology, such as the Internet, has actually

Welcome to my Internet Addiction Page
"I began to suspect that I had an internet addiction problem when I would get up at 3 A.M. to surf the net, and then I talked to a friend who hadn't been to bed yet. He was still surfing the internet at 3 o'clock." The information on this page indicates that people using the internet may be subject to a new illness in our society, internet addiction. I stumbled across this subject when surfing the net and read the article below in the Air Force News Service. Is the internet affecting your life in a negative way? Do you spend more time on the internet when you should be doing something else? Included on this page is the article I mentioned, from AFNS, a listing of symptoms , and where help can be found for this new form of addiction. Internet surfing could become an addiction by Susan Griggs Keesler News staff KEESLER AIR FORCE BASE, Miss. (AFNS) The Internet is an amazing information resource. Students, teachers and researchers use it as an investigative tool. Physicians use it to learn more about unfamiliar diseases and the latest medical developments. Ordinary folks use it for shopping, banking, bill-paying and communicating with family and friends. People all over the globe use it to connect with individuals of other countries and cultures. Even journalists use it to find information for stories like this one.

Internet Addiction Disorder: Causes, Symptoms,and Consequences
Jennifer R. Ferris Psychology Virginia Tech INTRODUCTION DEFINING INTERNET ADDICTION DISORDER "ADDICTION" AND INTERNET ADDICTION DISORDER Psychodynamics and Personality Sociocultutral explanations Addictions vary according to sex, age, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, religion, and country. Some addictions are more common among persons of different categories. For example, alcoholism is most common in the middle socioeconomic classes, in Native and Irish Americans, and in Catholics. Whites are more likely to use PCP and hallucinogens, but less likely than Blacks or Latinos to use heroin(Sue, 1994). Not enough data is available yet about those persons addicted to the Internet to determine if a particular class is most predominant. In addition, at this point there is not enough diversity among Internet users to make any definitive statements. As the diversity among users increases, and as the amount of research on the problem increases, hopefully we will know more about this interesting aspect of addiction with regard to the Internet. Behavioral explanations Biomedical explanations These explanations focus on hereditary and congenital factors, chemical imbalances in the brain and neurotransmitters. There could be chromosomes, hormones, and surplus or lack of certain necessary chemicals and neurotransmitters that regulate activity in the brain and the rest of the nervous system. According to this perspective, this would cause a someone to be susceptible to addiction (Sue, 1994). . There is definitive research that shows that some drugs act to fill in the synaptic gaps of the neurons in the brain, fooling the brain into sending out faulty information. This, it is thought, is one reason for the "high" one gets from engaging in activities such as running, drug use, and gambling. This might apply to Internet addiction, since many opportunities on the Internet are fun and exciting.

That you are becoming more irritable and unsociable? Have you ever stayed up until 3a.m. surfing the Web? Downloading music, backgrounds or porn? Well, if you've answered "yes" to at least one of these questions, then you might discover that you are, indeed, addicted to your screen and cyberspace. Computer/internet addiction was never an issue in the 1980s. That's because the Internet was not yet popular with the general public. Big companies and defense organizations were the first ones to ever start implementing the technology into their systems in the early '80s, and then a huge market was discovered for this technology to get big… very big.

    The Nature of Internet Addiction: Psychological Factors in Compulsive Internet Use David N. Greenfield, Ph.D., L.MFT, CEAP Psychological Health Associates and The Center for Internet Studies Virtual-Addiction.Com Presentation at the 1999 meetings of the American Psychological Association, Boston, Massachusetts, August 20,1999 People have become physically and psychologically dependent on many behaviors and substances for centuries. This does not appear to be limited mere interest, but rather consists of an almost driven pattern of use that can escalate to eventually negatively impact functioning. The key areas that seem to be impacted are marriages and relationships, employment, and legal/financial areas. The fact that substances, such as alcohol and other mood-altering drugs can create a physical and/or psychological dependence is well known and accepted. Even certain behaviors such as gambling, eating, work, exercise, and sex have gained more recent acceptance with regard to their addictive potential. More recently however, there has been an acknowledgement that the compulsive performance of these behaviors may mimic the addictive process found with drugs, alcohol and substances. The Internet may appear to be an additional behavior that can produce a compulsive pattern of use possibly leading to an addictive process.
