Times Online:

More than one in eight American adults show signs that they could be suffering from some form of internet addiction after admitting to researchers that they find it hard to limit their use.

A study from Stanford University School of Medicine in California found that “problematic internet use” was present in a sizeable portion of the population.

The study found that many of the respondents admitted that they wanted to spend less time surfing the internet but found it difficult to cut back, with almost six per cent saying that their excessive use had badly affected their relationships.
