          Internet Dramas

          August 29, 2008

          These days, it’s a common thing to surf the net, shop or even pay bills online, but do you know someone who spends way too much time on the computer? According to a Stanford University School of Medicine study, one out of eight American adults has problematic Internet use. Dr. Phil’s guests are desperate to get their loved ones off the PC because their obsession with the Internet causes major drama in their families and marriages.
