The number of people in Sussex addicted to the internet is on the rise.
Is it? Says who?
Psychiatrists in the county are helping to treat a growing number of computer and mobile phone users who cannot tear themselves away from the web.Experts fear that a generation of young people who have grown up with the internet may be stocking up potential health problems for the future.
Ahhh, right. People dedicated to reliving a ‘problem’ are suddenly finding lots of new ‘problems’…
Hove-based consultant psychiatrist David Keating, said: “This is a 21st century addiction. “I have noticed an increase in the number of people coming to me who recognise they have a problem and want to do something about it.“Health professionals have been seeing this develop over the past five years and it is something we fully expect to increase in years to come.”
