Internet addiction is a very real problem, with real consequences. And it’s way more prevalent than you think. This week, we hear from a young man about his struggles with a gaming addiction. And, a woman who asked to remain anonymous, shares the emotional story of how her whole life was changed by a loved one’s addiction. (After making this episode our production team was left questioning their own internet usage, as well as their family’s.)
