Internet addiction disorder
Internet addiction disorder (IAD), now more commonly called problematic Internet use (PIU) or compulsive Internet use (CIU). Other overlapping terms include Internet overuse, problematic computer use or pathological computer use – and even iDisorder. These terms avoid the word addiction and are not limited to any single cause, but only reflect a general statement about excessive computer use that interferes with daily life. IAD was originally proposed as a disorder in a satirical hoax by Ivan Goldberg, M.D., in 1995, though some later researchers have taken his essay seriously. Other habits such as reading, playing computer games, or watching very large numbers of Internet videos or movies are all troubling only to the extent that these activities interfere with normal life. Internet addiction is a subset of a broader "technology addiction". §A multidimensional construct §Disputed disorder: DSM Jerald J. §Controversies in diagnosis §Net compulsions Dr.
