On Line Gambling

The Australian Psychological Society’s submission to a worldwide international manual has called for the inclusion of an addiction to internet gaming.

The inclusion of the new addiction, submitted as "internet-use disorder", has been characterised as any kind of withdrawal symptom – such as expression of distress, frustration, irritability – when sufferers are not allowed to access to technology.

The disorder is being observed in children and teenagers.

Demand from concerned parents has already led to a specialised clinic opening in Sydney’s CBD.
