Beware of “Internet Psychological Disorders”
The latest set of statistics by scientists sounded the alarm for us.
Of the more than 200 million Internet users worldwide, about 11.4 million people suffer from some form of online psychological disorder, accounting for about 6% of the number of Internet users.
This part of people gradually formed a psychological dependence on the Internet in the endless surfing experience on the Internet. With each continuous surfing time, this dependence is getting stronger and stronger.
”Internet poisoning” has become an increasingly serious social problem in the United States.
The number of “Internet poisoning” patients in Japan is also increasing rapidly.
They often “can’t sleep because they are worried about whether the e-mail has been delivered” and “sleep and forget to eat as soon as they go online.”
Some people develop inexplicably low moods, slow thinking, dizziness, shaking hands, and loss of appetite every day when they wake up.
What’s more, once the Internet is stopped, acute withdrawal syndrome will occur, and even self-harm or suicide will be adopted, endangering personal and social safety.
Studies have shown that long-term Internet use will increase the level of a chemical called dopamine in the brain. This adrenaline-like substance will be highly exciting in a short time, but then it will be more decadent and depressed.
According to statistics, the age of people with Internet psychological disorders ranges from 15 to 45 years, and male patients account for 98.
Single men aged 20 to 30 are vulnerable.
The staged separation of patients from the computer network is the first step in the treatment of network psychological disorders. The Internet time must be limited to two hours a day, and daily life should be adjusted according to the instructions of a psychologist. At the same time, comprehensive treatment such as antidepressants and psychotherapy should be applied.
Medical psychologists call on schools to help students understand that computers are nothing more than machines for spreading information, and that familiarity with the Internet is only a means of entering the virtual world.
Young people absorb knowledge through books, newspapers, radio and other media, and treat the real world and virtual space with a healthy personality and a healthy mentality.
