Netomania is one of the serious internet addiction disorder. The Internet itself is a neutral device originally designed to facilitate research among academic and military agencies.

Some therapists are unfamiliar with the Internet, making its seduction difficult to understand. Other times, its impact on the individual’s life is minimized.

Netomania crosses the line into a psychiatric disorder when people can not control their own use of the internet. One example is when they are spending abnormal amounts of time on-line.
