Something I’ve been hearing about – both in from the people around me and in articles – is internet / computer / mobile phone addiction. Internet addiction is defined as, “excessive computer use that interferes with daily life.” … Yet, perhaps the line between what is good and what is too much becomes blurred when the internet (and computers, mobile devices, etc.) are part of daily life.  How much time does the average adult or child spend in front of a computer screen? Is this for work, for pleasure, for socializing? How would you feel if you couldn’t get online for 1 hour, 1 day, 10 days, 100 days? How much time do you spend in the company of your mobile phone? How would you feel if you lost it?
