For most people, eating is a pleasurable experience. It's a biological necessity that most cultures have elevated to a high social status. But for some, eating is a compulsion. Men and women of all ages force themselves to eat too much or too little, and suffer tremendous psychological pain when they do. Eating, body weight and image become an obsession that damages relationships and has serious medical consequences.
Sites examining eating disorders from a Mental Health perspective should submit their site here
Gaming addiction has been recognised as a serious problem for many years. It is noted as being particularly addictive when it concerns Massive Multiplayer Online Games, where many addicts retreat in to an online universe to the exclusion of all else.
