Facebook Addiction Is As Bad As Drugs

The other day I was reading about a lady with facebook addiction. According to the article, she would set her alarm clock to wake her up every 30 minutes at night so she can play facebook games. My, that is serious addiction and can affect your mental health just as much as drugs would.

Many people think that facebook addiction is not as bad as addiction to drugs or abuse of prescription drugs. However, it can be harmful to your health when it affects your sleep and waking activities. One possible sign of facebook addiction is trying to hide your facebook activities from your partner or parents.

It is not easy to be a parent these days, now not only do you have to worry about drugs which are unfortunately sometimes easily available in clubs and pubs or even prescription drugs which can be abused, you also have to worry about facebook addiction too, this seemingly harmless social media tool that has brought the world closer together.

These days, facebook addiction is treated alongside drug addictions in recovery centers like Morningside Recovery. Quite often many people who face addiction issues whether it is to drugs, prescription drugs or even to facebook may have underlying issues and centers like this may help to get to the root of the problem.
