The latest addiction to trap thousands of people is the Internet, which has been blamed for broken relationships, job losses, financial ruin and even suicide. Psychologists now recognize Internet Addiction Syndrome (IAS) as a new illness that could cause serious problems and ruin many lives. IAS is similar to other problems like gambling, smoking and drinking: addicts have dreams about the Internet; they need to use it first thing in the morning; they lie to their parents and partners about how much time they spend online; they wish they could cut down, but are unable to do so. Many users spend up to 40 hours a week on the Internet. Some of the addicts are teenagers who are already hooked on computer games and who find it very difficult to resist the games on the Internet.
"I cannot put down the phone, which is connected to the Internet. I am crazy about knowing what my friends and classmates are doing and where. It is really like an addiction", says Jessica Dawsy, a teenage girl from Texas. " My brother is also an addict, but he loves to play video games. If I forbid him to play them for one evening, he gets angry and very aggressive. I do not know how to help him."
Scientists claim that family is the biggest support and can help the teenagers the most. They need to pay attention more to them and offer various activities, such as sports, music lessons and other hobbies.
