The Statistics
Cybersex Addiction- compulsive use of the Internet to look at, download or swap pornography or to engage in casual cybersex with other users which impacts greatly on their real-life intimate relationships

Cyber-Relationship Addiction – addiction to social networking, chat rooms, and messaging to the point where virtual, online friends become more important than real-life relationships.

Net Compulsions – such as compulsive online gaming, gambling, stock trading, or compulsive use of online auction sites such as eBay, often resulting in financial and job-related problems.

Internet Addiction disorder refers to the problematic use of the internet.

'It refers to the compulsive need to spend a great deal of time on the internet,to the extent where the other aspects of your life such as relationships, health and work suffer.'
The Rest of the types...
Information Overload – compulsive web surfing or database searching, leading to lower work productivity and less social interaction with family and friends.

Computer Addiction – obsessive playing of off-line computer games, such as Solitaire or Minesweeper, or obsessive computer programming.
The user:
~Needs to spend ever-increasing amounts of time online to feel the same sense of satisfaction.
~Turns to the Internet to cope with negative feelings such as guilt, anxiety or depression.
~Spends a significant amount of time engaging in other activities related to the Internet.
~Neglects other areas of life (such as relationships, work, and school)in favour of spending time on the Internet.
~Prepared to lose relationships, jobs or other important things in favour of the Internet.
The types of treatment...
Professional Treatment- may include cognitive behaviour therapy which aims to allow the person to use the Internet properly rather than compulsively.

Consult with your doctor for further information and referral.

There are also internet addiction support groups available that may help treat your addiction.

Approximately 1 in 8 people are addicted to the internet.

According to preliminary research, the typical affected individual is a single, college-educated, white male in his 30s, who spends approximately 30 hours a week on excessive computer use.
