Addiction comes in many forms. Typically, when someone hears the word addiction they equate it to substance abuse, like alcohol or drugs. However, someone that is prone to addiction isn't limited by these two types of addiction. Behavioral addiction, such as internet addiction, is also possible. If you or a loved one is dealing with internet addiction, 7 Cups offers online therapy to help.

How Do I Know I Have Internet Addiction?

The internet is such an ever-present part of daily life that it's almost considered a basic human need at this point. Some internet usage is common, even necessary. But if using the internet takes over your day and you become dependent on it, if you feel guilty about how much time you spend online, or when it negatively affects your personal life and quality of relationships with your loved ones, it's a good idea to seek help.

Internet addiction can also lead to other mental conditions such as depression and anxiety. Before your addiction worsens, make sure to get the treatment and help necessary to overcome your addiction. Our online therapists at 7 Cups are ready to support and guide you.

What Causes Internet Addiction?

The cause of internet addiction varies from person to person. Studies show that there is a similar chemical reaction and dependency that is seen in alcoholics and drug addicts, so therapy sometimes combined with medication can help in the same way. As with substance abuse disorders, the internet is typically used as a coping mechanism and a means of escape. Some people get addicted to online gaming, shopping, porn, or simply continuous use. No matter what kind of internet addiction you're dealing with, therapy can help you get to the root of the problem and learn how to replace the addiction with healthier behaviors.
