Internet use has exploded in recent years,providing a constant, ever-changing sourceof information and entertainment.
You can connect with literally hundreds of people on social networking sites like MySpace,Facebook, or Twitter.
Email, online chat and messageboards allow for both public andanonymous communication aboutalmost any topic imaginable, down tothe smallest detail.
However, there is increasingevidence that for some people,compulsive Internet use interfereswith daily life, work andrelationships
 
Bratterand Forest(1985; in Freeman, 1992)defineaddiction as "a behavior pattern of compulsive drug use characterized by overwhelming involvement...with the use of a drug and thesecuring of the supply, as well as the tendency to relapse aftercompletion of withdrawal."
Internet addiction is a psycho physiologicaldisorder involving tolerance (the same amountof usage elicits less response; increasedamounts become necessary to evoke the sameamount of pleasure).
Due to the nature of Internet Addiction Disorder(failed impulse control without involving anintoxicant), of all other addictions, IAD is said to beclosest to pathological gambling.
Kimberly S. concludes that, "the use of theinternet can definitely disrupt one's academic,social, financial, and occupational life thesame way other well-documented addictionslike pathological gambling, eating disorders,and alcoholism can."
