The Star Tribune published an article today about an emerging field of addiction: Video Games. There is a lot of debate about whether video games even qualify as an addiction. Some researchers say video games are just a bad habit . . . but the article sites tales of marriages falling apart and students flunking out of school . . . all because of video game adventures . Sounds like it's a problem either way.

Of course, Internet Addiction has been around for quite some time. Think you might be an addict? . . . If you wanna find out take this test.
