Internet Addictions
Virtual Addiction: Help for Netheads, Cyberfreaks, and Those Who Love Them

by David N. Greenfield Ph.D    Paperback: 227 pages
Publisher: New Harbinger Publications    (November 1, 1999)

It might start with an innocent exploration of chat rooms, or a stab at an interactive multiuser game. But the Internet, for many Americans, has the potential to become an addiction that wreaks havoc at home, work, school, and in real-life relationships. The author, an expert on Internet addiction, began researching obsessive online behavior when he noticed that an increasing number of couples seeking marriage counseling were suffering from cyberspace-related problems. Virtual Addiction includes 12 warning signs of Internet abuse, steps for addicts to change behavior, and advice for compulsive online shoppers and stock traders.

Caught in the Net : How to Recognize the Signs of Internet Addiction—and a Winning Strategy for Recovery

by Kimberly S. Young   Hardcover: 256 pages
Publisher: Wiley    (February 20, 1998)

What you might have thought was only a joke is real: net addiction can destroy lives in the same way that compulsive gambling or alcoholism can. Young (psychology, U. of Pittsburgh) shares the results of her three-year study of internet addiction. She offers a questionnaire for net users to determine if they have a problem, points out several ways that internet friendships are superficial while seeming the opposite, and lists numerous strategies for recovery.

Your Marriage and the Internet

by Tom Whiteman, Randy Petersen   Paperback: 208 pages
Publisher: Revell    (September 1, 2002)

The Internet is a phenomenal tool, but it can also be destructive to marriages. Easy access to sexual images, information, and chats lures some away from total commitment to their spouses. Other marriages are endangered by preoccupation with the Internet - too much time spent in solitude rather than in building relationships. Your Marriage and the Internet shows how couples can make the Internet a resource for strengthening marriage and family relationships rather than tearing them apart. It tackles issues of pornography, escapism, instant gratification, online fantasies, and Internet addiction. Personal stories illustrate the issues, and chapters are loaded with positive, practical suggestions for building up marriage.

Hidden Dangers of the Internet

by Gregory L. Jantz   Paperback: 160 pages
Publisher: Shaw    (March 7, 2000)

Internet use is catching on faster than any form of technology ever invented. Its potential for human benefit is beyond measure. But it is not without problems:

• Marriages break up over emotional relationships forged in chat rooms.
• College students risk grades and health to spend time online.
• Child abusers lure kids by contact through the internet.
• Adults spend fortunes to subscribe to internet pornography.

These people have crossed the boundary between healthy use and obsessive preoccupation with this versatile electronic medium. An avid net-surfer himself, therapist Gregory Jantz has seen an increasing number of clients coming to his counseling centers for help with internet abuse. Jantz writes for two audiences: those who are worried about a loved one's use of the net, and internet users who may have a problem. He offers both groups concrete and biblical steps for working towards change.

Netaholics?: The Creation of a Pathology

by Carla G. Surratt   Hardcover: 222 pages
Publisher: Nova Science Publishers    (April 1, 1999)

Though many regular Internet participants scoff at the idea of Internet addiction, a growing number of professionals in the field of psychology argue that Internet participation is addictive, and that its symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment parallel that of other addictions, such as gambling and shopping. This work examines questions surrounding the possibility of Internet addiction from a sociological perspective. The author received a doctorate from Arizona State University, and is also the author of . -- Copyright 1999 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR All rights reserved Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

The Skinner Box Effect:
Sexual Addiction & Online Pornography

by T.M. Grundner    Paperback: 160 pages
Publisher: Writers Club Press    (April 1, 2000)

These are the facts: 1. Among the millions of people on the Internet there exists a significant percentage for whom online pornography is not, and never will be, a "recreational pursuit." Rather it is, or soon will become an addiction. 2. Researchers and clinicians have established that pornography addiction contains all the characteristics of any other kind of addiction: mood altercation, compulsion, dependency, the need for higher and more exotic "doses" and withdrawal symptoms when the person tries to stop. 3. Because of the "Skinner Box Effect," pornography on the Internet is different and far more virulent than the customary forms. The reason is because it derives its potency from both the content of what is seen, AND from the way it is presented to the user by the technology itself. For those suffering from the problem, Dr. Grundner provides a series of behavioral and spiritual techniques to help stop the downward spiral. Over 30 personal accounts are presented—taken directly from the Internet itself—of the pain, suffering, loss of jobs, and failed marriages that have resulted from online pornography and sexual addiction.

Cybersex Unhooked: A Workbook for Breaking Free of Compulsive Online Sexual Behavior

by Elizabeth Griffin, Joseph Moriarity, David L. Delmonico   Paperback: 225 pages Publisher: Gentle Path Press    (September 1, 2001)

If you have a problem with internet pornography, or even think you do, I reccomend this book. It paints a clear picture of your problem, and helps you begin to be honest with yourself about the extent of your problem. This is not psychobabble or uninformed "self-help" garbage. This book offers specific steps to recovery. You'll find that you cannot recover on your own (something I tried many times, but failed). Get this book -- you'll be happy you did.
