Hooked on the Net
How to Say Goodnight When the Party Never Ends
With the explosive growth of the Internet has come a new type of pathology—one that many have labeled Internet addiction. But can anyone truly become addicted to the World Wide Web? Or is abusing the convenient accessibility of the Net a symptom of deeper spiritual, emotional, and psychological problems? How do you say "good night" to a party that never ends?
Careaga examines Internet addiction not only from a solid Christian perspective but also from a deeply personal point of view. As the author of two books on Internet ministry and a self- admitted Internet junkie, Careaga is intimately familiar with both the dangers and the prom- ises of extensive Internet use. Careaga shares his personal experiences as well as his research to help not only those ministering to "Netaholics" but also those who are themselves hooked on the Net.
