ARE You an ADDICT? Online or smartphone addiction is comparable to smoking you have to do it more than once a day and if you don’t you start to feel anxious, irritable, worried and desperate for your next time.

My biker in the intersection was re-tweeted in my mind when reading a recent Washington Post article. Two billion mobile apps downloaded to date, another 5 billion apps will be downloaded by 2013. Physically we are in the present; mentally we in the digital data stream. And when we stay fixed for a moment in the “now”, it’s not for long.

Here’s the story of Sam, an iron-willed guy who decided to quit smoking. The first day passed, the second day passed and still he resisted the urge to smoke a cigarette. He started to feel happy and confident.

Defensive Coping- a way to protect yourself from emotional discomforts of stress, in a matter that reduces the intensity of the stress experienced. Defensive coping includes avoidance, repression, and denial. How does this work? By self-deception; we bend and twist reality in ways that suit us best. This is both an unconscious and conscious process, although mostly unconscious and it is very normal. Although it’s normal, it definitely is not healthy. When you avoid a situation, you do not come up with a solution. When you repress a situation, it leads to poor health because you delay owning up to your problems. When you are in denial and you experience wishful thinking, you surely do not accomplish much.

Preventing Internet Addiction

Eating is a big addiction in our country today and this one is very hard to treat. Abstinence is big part of treatment when it comes to addiction. But how do you abstain from something that is life sustaining? There are certain foods that cause cravings in some people and these cravings will often lead to binge eating. The foods that are most often the biggest culprits are sugar and highly processed carbs. The best way to avoid this is to abstain from eating these foods. The problem comes from identifying the specific foods that cause the cravings.

Turn it off. When you’re done with the computer, shut it off. If you have to wait for the computer to boot up every time you want to use it, there will be less temptation to use it.

Disturbs daily habits. You begin not sleeping or neglecting personal hygiene. If you’d rather chat online than spend time with your family, you have a problem.

If you look up information overload, Wikipedia will link you to a number of different words that relate. For instance, one relation to information overload is, Cognitive Dissonance..Yah, I’m not really sure what that means either. Another is, Mind-Expanding. Now that’s more my level. Than we have Continuous Partial Attention, Learning Curve, or my favorite.smartphone addiction. Now, in my opinion the best way to avoid this overload of information is with a little ATTENTION Management.

And it’s not because I can’t. I have the knowledge and skills to do nearly all of them right now, or at least the means to find out how to do them. I’m just so obsessed with information and other people’s stories and projects that it’s impeding my own ability to succeed.

I will start off by explaining the unhealthy coping patterns because I believe it to be very important for people to realize what is categorized as an unhealthy coping mechanism.

Because none of us would be here if babies didn’t happen, it doesn’t seem like it can be addiction, but some women can actually become addicted to becoming pregnant and having children. As reported on with Nadya Suleman, aka Octomom, the addiction left her delusional enough to think she could care for fourteen children. Samantha Chang, the Celebrity Fitness and Health Examiner, has more.

How To Conquer Internet Addiction

Below are the top 25 bizarre addictions that are a must see/read to believe. They include people from all walks of life and even have a few entries on items that are supposed to be good for you.

So, returning to Sam, what could he have done? Not that hard to guess. He should have taken the decision to quit smoking on a very bad day. He should have chosen a day where his will-power is at its bottom instead of choosing one of the best days in his life to start quitting. If he did succeed to quit while being at his lowest level of will-power, then any other day would be much easier for him because his will-power will be much stronger.

I did a search for information addiction on Google a few minutes ago (please refrain from pointing out the irony of searching for information about information addiction on the internet, I know it’s hypocritical). There’s actually a wikipedia entry about information addiction, albeit a short one, as well as another entry about smartphone addiction. Upon reading both of those, I realized that i was actually suffering from some sort of disorder. Basically a technological ADD.

Thus began my infiltration into the online world. I was never without it. I learned basic html and created a hideous website at the online neighborhood GeoCities, founded in 1994. I hung out with the D&D crowd, who would eventually take online gaming to a whole new level with Worlds of Warcraft, but in the mid 90’s the RPG chat applet was a godsend to this dice-throwing, book-reading crowd.

Realizing You Are Suffering From Information Addiction

Yes, you read that right. People can actually become addicted to eating frozen water, which even has its own name: pagophagia. However, far more than a bizarre food addiction, pagophagia can actually be an indicator for iron deficiency anemia. Check out this blog post by Kevin MD with more.

Some have been caught hiding their additions by sneaking it under a menu or going to the restroom to use it. A study by New Jersey’s Rutgers University School claims the Blackberry is fueling a rise in e-mail and smartphone addiction, with sufferers able to survive only a few minutes without checking for new mail.

To better understand how to cure an addiction, its important to really understand the behavior and what drives someone to do it. Pornography addiction is very misunderstood. People think it’s all about sex, but that’s not entirely true. While it involves sex, what we are really dealing with are the brain chemicals that are released during the behavior. The “user”, actually gets addicted to the naturally occurring brain chemicals just like he or she would to a drug.

There are many things you can do to stop a negative behavior. In the case of someone who bites their nail, breaking that habit might involve putting something spicy on their fingernails. Another thing that often works to help deter the individual from biting their nails is a couple of layers of fingernail polish. This approach obviously works much better for women than men.

Use the internet as a treat. Don’t worry – those emails will be there whether you check them 20 times a day or 2 times a day! No one is going to die just because you did not update the status on your Facebook page! If anyone complains tell them the truth – you had stuff to do!

Now the techie gets very confused. His or her dreams of unending knowledge and experience have just collapsed and she/he begins thinking, “Is this all there is?” Too late now to go back to Roller Derby, a bunch of floozies skating around in circles; that’s no longer an option. Nor is NASCAR, a bunch of cars running around in circles, or fat guys in funny tights chasing each other around in a ring. Nor is the techies previous internet existence an option, which ran around in circles as well.
