Internet Addiction


A couple of weeks ago I posted on Internet Addiction in the DSM V?

Medicalize problems again. In an editorial in the American Journal of Psychiatry Internet Addiction is proposed as a new diagnosis in DSM V. Now the American Journal of Psychiatry used to be a serious peer reviewed journal although some of us doubt this feature for a while now.


On Mind Hacks there is another post about this editorial.
Why we have to describe this as an addiction still completely baffles me.
