I. What is Internet addiction?
Internet addiction is defined as any online-related, compulsive behavior which interferes with normal living and causes severe stress on family, friends, loved ones, and one’s work environment. It is a compulsive behavior that completely dominates the addict’s life. Internet addicts make the Internet a priority more important than family, friends, and work. The Internet becomes the organizing principle of addicts’ lives.
Similar to other addictions, those suffering from Internet addiction use the virtual fantasy world to connect with real people through the Internet, as a substitution for real-life human communication, which they are unable to achieve normally.
II. What are the warning signs of Internet addiction?
Preoccupation with the Internet. (Thoughts about previous on-line activity or anticipation of the next on-line session.)
Use of the Internet in increasing amounts of time in order to achieve satisfaction.
Repeated, unsuccessful efforts to control or stop Internet use.
Depression when trying to stop/control use of the Internet.
Risked loss of significant relationships, job, educational or career opportunities because of Internet use.
Lies to family members, doctors, or others.
Use of the Internet is a way to escape from problems.
III. What are the effects?
Internet addiction results in personal, family, academic, financial, and occupational problems that are characteristic of other addictions. Impairments of real life relationships are happened as a result of excessive use of the Internet. Individuals suffering from Internet addiction spend more time in self-isolation and spend less time with real people in their lives.
Some suffering from Internet addiction may create on-line profiles where they are able to change their personality and pretend to be someone other than himself or herself. Such negative self-concepts lead to clinical problems of depression.
Many persons who try to stop/control their Internet use suffer from: anger, depression, relief, mood swings, anxiety, sadness, loneliness, boredom, and upset stomach. Being addicted to the Internet can also cause physical discomfort or medical problems such as: dry eyes, backaches, headaches, eating irregularities, problems with personal hygiene, and sleep disturbance.
IV. How can someone get help?
There are a number of steps you can take to get your smartphone use under control. First of all, an addict should modify his/her Internet use, step-by-step.

They read the text and underline the effects. Then ask them which of the effects is the most dangerous and why they think so.
Supplement, part IV
Ask Ss’ opinion: is there any cure for Internet addiction? Then say that many specialists work on helping addicts. And there are some recommendation for people with addiction. Ss read all of them and put them from the most useful to the less useful (they work in pairs). After that, Ss watch the video (2:40-end) and write down additional information.

T: What do you think is the Internet addiction a big and serious problem today? Why (not)?
2. Ss work in pairs. Each pair are specialist who give recommendation about Internet addiction. Ask each pair to choose a sheet of paper (there are the kind of people they will write the recommendation for: parents, friends/schoolmates, addicts). Ss make lists and present them to the class. Remember Ss that they give a recommendation, so they can use modal verb ‘should/shouldn’t’.

- you should consult a doctor and have talk therapy;
- you will have to take some special medicine, which is used to stop kleptomania or gambling addiction;
- you can take up some hobby such as cycling or reading;
- talk to your parents;
- ask a friend or a family member to put on parental controls on your computer - it will block the websites you spend most time on or you will be unable to use your computer during certain hours of the day;
- Set goals for when you can use the Internet. For example, you might schedule use for certain times of day, or a certain amount of time.
- Turn off your computer at certain times of the day, such as having dinner, or playing with your younger brothers/sisters.
- Don’t bring your computer to bed. The blue light emitted by the screens can disrupt your sleep if used within two hours of bedtime. Turn devices off and leave them in another room overnight to charge. Instead of reading eBooks at night, pick up a book. You’ll not only sleep better but research shows that you’ll also remember more of what you’ve read.
- Replace your computer use with healthier activities. If you are bored and lonely, have a plan for other ways to fill the time, such as reading a book, or chatting with friends face to face.
