Addicted to the Internet? Tell Us About It!

Do you worry about the amount of time you spend online?

The fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, America's psychiatric Bible, will be released this May with some controversial additions: hoarding, gambling abuse, and, in an appendix of conditions recommended for further study, internet use gaming disorder.

The scientific community is still divided over what internet use gaming disorder is, exactly, but who hasn't wondered if the amount of time they spend on the internet verges on unhealthy?

Seriously: Have you wondered that? Let us know below, and while you're at it, tell us a little bit more about what you do online. Look for the results of our survey in our June issue.

Thanks!
