INTRODUCTION

A. Background of Study

Once, not too long ago, people had to wait months to communicate with their families and friends. Families immigrated to the "new world" by boat, and made the treacherous journey over a period of weeks, even months!  Now it takes little more than a flight delay, or traffic accident to cause tremendous stress and irritability. Every day, millions of Americans take the wonderful advances in technology for granted. What people had to do, or the way things were, are just not important anymore.

Addicts feel a need to be at a computer, forgetting family events, and wreaking havoc on their relationships because of their apathy. Computer addiction is a growing, deadly disease caused by technology. However, just like any addiction, there are ways to combat the need for and over use of technologist, and made the treacherous journey over a period of weeks, even months!  Now it takes little more than a flight delay, or traffic accident to cause tremendous stress and irritability.
