Are You Internet Addicted?

"Are You Internet Addicted?"

According to an online source, a new study from Stanford University in the United States says more than one in eight adult internet users show signs of addiction.

The study's lead author, Elias Aboujaoude, said more internet users were starting to visit their doctors for help with "unhealthy attachments" to cyberspace. " We often focus on how wonderful the internet is. How simple and efficient it can make things. But we need to consider the fact that it creates real problems for a sub-set of people," Aboujaoude said. Addicts had strong compulsions to use the internet to check email, make blog entries or visit websites or chatrooms, he said. "

Not surprisingly, online pornography and, to some degree online gambling have received the most attention, but users are as likely to use other sites, including chatrooms, shopping venues and special-interest websites." Internet addiction was similar to what sufferers of substance abuse or impulse-control disorders experienced, he said.

I have just tried this but it didnt support a few tools I use like fasterfox or my current theme.

I tried modding the theme to support 2.0 but it wouldnt have it.

Will try it again when there is more tools available for it.
