Over 50 Per Cent Of You Need Serious Help For Internet Addiction

Yesterday, I asked you to complete a screening questionnaire developed for the reStart Internet Addiction Treatment centre. The results were quite frightening.

According to the data, over 50 per cent of you answered five or more of the questions with a "yes" answer. Okay, I can see that—you are reading a gadget blog after all. But the interesting thing is that the answer with the highest number of responses was a "yes" answer to all twelve questions. Really? All twelve? I mean, these aren't all fluff questions—actually it reads more like "signs you might grow up to be a serial killer". Maybe spending $US14,500 on a 45-day program isn't such a bad idea after all.
