Indispensable addict: Internet or computer addiction is a serious problem, the gravity of which is realized today as it has become a normal household amenity. This ddiction can be hard to treat as it is not dispensable in the same manner drugs, alcohol, cigarettes and gambling are. Cognitive behavioral therapy, individual and group consulting may be effective. Underlying anxiety and depression should be treated.
