This is the reason I hate our government, we give people like this food stamps. I think food stamps should require the same proof of effort that unemployment does. Proof that you're out looking for work. I can't believe that my tax dollars go towards expanding this guy's large gut
Addiction can be summed up as anything a person brings him/herself to become dependent on. So yes Internet addiction is a real thing, as is gaming addiction, as is cocaine addiction, etc. One could say the pervs from the Modern Warfare Goggles article are addicted to their moms basement\care\etc.
wow.... tried to use "supporting group in WoW" as keywords on google... it actually leaded to quite a few interesting website. Some are about the support for the game addiction. Some of them are the supporting groups for the WoW "widows". Talking about how some guys choose the game instead of sex.
hmmm....maybe WoW can be an effective way to help those people who have sex addiction..lol.... or maybe even drug addiction!
By the way... I remember somebody set up a WoW supporting group "in WoW"... Since that is the place they can find the person who needs "help".
I had a period of excessive online gaming years ago and forced myself to pull away from it, so understand to some extent how it could become problematic.
I've never played WOW... for this very reason. The only people I know who do play it prefer that to any other activity. I offered to take someone boating last summer and he wanted to stay home and play WOW.
So I do understand that it could become a problem. Living between railroad tracks and continuing this type of destructive behavior is not a solution however.

Food stamps are not just for people without jobs...Actually if you have no job and you dont qualify as homeless you cant get foodstamps.Its only for homless and people who are WORKING and cant afford to feed themselves after paying all the bills.
anyways back to the article. I cant really feel sorry for this guy because I dont think it a legitimate addiction.Id go as far as to laugh because the only addicition you can get is the same as weed or sweet foods.Its all in your head
