Facebook Vs Alcohol - Which Is More Addictive?

Facebook Vs Alcohol - Which Is More Addictive?

You might be feeling that spending time on any social media network is a simple way to pass time and is a common habit. But a recent study by University of Chicago Booth School of Business says that social networking sites can be more addictive, than alcohol. The desire to consume alcohol can be controlled and turned down, but the desire to check Facebook is simply uncontrollable for most people, and it’s a serious addiction.

About the study
The ground breaking study was done on 250 people in and around Germany aged between 18 and 85 years of age. They were sent messages at specific intervals to report their desires and cravings. It is found that most people had the desire to sleep and have sex during the day that they were able to control. But the desire for checking Facebook was much higher.

Reasons for Facebook addiction

  1. One of the major reasons is that availability of Facebook is much easier and higher than alcohol availability.
  2. Also, it is thought that the cost of checking Facebook is much less than consuming some amount of alcohol on a regular basis.
  3. Even if a man wants to resist his desire, but due to easy availability and lesser cost, he is prone to use it again and again.
  4. Alcohol consumption is prohibited in public and during office hours in many countries. But checking Facebook updates have no restrictions. People can check it whenever they feel the desire.
  5. The most shocking part is the urges drove the people to such an extent, that they couldn’t even resist themselves even if they wanted to do so.

Effects of Facebook addiction

  1. Drainage of time: No matter how good we feel while checking Facebook updates, can you deny that it’s simply a waste of time?
  2. Self esteem reduced: When you see your peers enjoying their life with flying colors, no wonder you will feel depressed. But we are reluctant to believe this fact, that nobody shows his tragic part of life on Facebook. So, whom you think is the happiest person in the world, may be the saddest and is drowned in his own miseries.

Remedy of this so called addiction
The study says that when we are much worn out, we are unable to control our desire and our will power is depleted.

So, if you find yourself posting your status on Facebook at the midnight instead of sleeping, then it is high time you should try to come out of this addiction and give yourself a better life and health. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

I was a marijuana user after using it for over 5 years I started experiencing strange things like hearing voices and felling that people are talking about me. I consulted a doc and he diagnosed with substance induced psychosis and prescribed me with medication however after taking these medicines for over 2.5 years im feeling better now. Some of the medicines which I take are sizdon pactine solian depakote. Now im off such symptoms however im not able to focus on a single job I lose it in the training itself I basically do not understand the training and will not be able to focus concentrate or understand things during training. I have swapped over 20 jobs just attending training pls give me a solution. And if I start smoking marijuana again will it affect my mental health?

The doctor who has been treating you seems to have done a very good job. Based on what you say, it seems like psychosis induced by Cannabis and persisting even after you have stopped cannabis. So, if you go back to cannabis again the old symptoms have high chances of recurrence. Regarding your inability to pursue job, after training. It needs to be addressed by psychosocial rehabilitation. Discuss with your psychiatrist about your aims, your mental capacity in pursuing job, etc. All the best.

Why do i become very angry and without thinking i abuse any one. I used to say all those things which i dont have to. Please help

Psychologist,
Your anger could possibly be a result of bottling up your emotions for a long time and now it could have become beyond your tolerance capacity. It could be possible that you find it easier to get angry with certain type of people and tend to unload on them. I am also picking up certain regret at a later time. Some awareness about your reasons and triggers for getting angry and your knowing your boundaries with people will help you manage your anger better.

Is hypertension also be considered as a cause unhealthy heart. If a patient is having BP with 130/90 or even slightly higher, is it a must to take a drug and if so, what is the drug of choice and dosage recommended?

Hypertension is defintly a cause of unhealthy heart. Usually the blood pressure is considered as 120/80 plus or minus 20. But it cannot be generalised. This normal value is taken by law of averages. Fact is the blood pressure or so called normal values ranges from persons to person and it cannot be treated by considering this law of averages. Moreover it is modified by different factors such as age, sex, timings, exertion, mental state, etc. You can listen to Dr. B m hegde the renowned cardiologist in who says gandhilji had blood pressure of 220/110 and it was normal for him and he died of gunshot not by stroke. So if the person has any symptoms associated with this pressure he needs treatment. Otherwise no. Moreover as per homoeopathy blood pressure rises not without any cause. And this cause is depending on the sensitivity of a person and this sensitivity and proneness to hypertension has to be treated for a permanent cure. Otherwise he will become a slave of antihypertensives which only suppresses the blood pressure never cures it.

My wife suffering from mental depression, now .exbaren is, but no improvement, what will do.
Most important thing is to make a detailed evaluation reg her mental status so that to know whether sh is having a depressive disorder .If she is having depressive disorder as a Clinical Psychologist what I can offer is Cognitive behaviour therapy as a Psychological intervention. Also need to know details and severity to decide whether she need to undergo medication .How ever a moderate level of exercise like walking and careful diet with adequate minerals and omega 3 will also help to improve.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Please do not worry. You should be aware that anxiety and apprehension worsens your GERD symptoms. You are already taking medicines and you should believe your doctor when he says you will be cured. I suggest you to practice breathing exercise / pranayama for 20 minutes twice daily. You should get good relief. Take care.

Hi I'm very dejected, feeling strength less. Not interested. Not following routine. All this since two years.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You could be depressed. Can you identify with what happened two years ago that has led to this change? it is very important that you get into a routine by which I mean you need to follow a disciplined lifestyle. Please visit with a counselor first and that person will check how intense your situation is and decide whether you need medication also. Whatever happens, do not discontinue your therapy with the counselor. You must also work on your emotions and learn to express them appropriately. I suspect you have some deep-rooted anger that needs to be dealt with. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend yoga classes etc. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved too. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in god to alleviate your sufferings. Don? t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Get into a healthy routine, and do some fixed activities that are interesting, and involve people in your life every day.
