Social Media Addiction - Treatment, Symptoms and Causes

What is Social Media Addiction?

'Internet, the greatest discovery of 21st century brought great opportunities with it. The human race saw a lot of changes after then, talking just about the internet then and now, we are introduced to social networking sites like Facebook, Instagram, Gmail, etc. Getting in contact with anyone is not difficult anymore. Social media provisions like status update allow us to express ourselves to the entire word be it regarding an important topic or our day to day activities. The connection is not just limited to the people we know but contacting and getting to know more people around the world is also pretty easy now.

The Internet has been a boon to humankind but as every other invention given to us by science, it has its share of drawbacks. Nothing is good in excess however beneficial it may be, this is what has been the problem with these social media sites. It did make the world a small place, improved communication between people irrespective of the distance, it brought us closer to other cultures as we started learning about them but it has given birth to a new problem that is an addiction to social media.

Causes of Social Media Addiction.

The main reason behind people getting addicted to social media is complicated as it depends on the lifestyle of a person, the feel-good release of chemical every time we post, etc. Some common cause may be narrowed to the following:

The release of the feel-good chemical every time we post something. It gives us a sense of acceptance, as such people joy or happiness of that particular moment depends on whether people like it or not.

The one who is not confident or constantly thinks about what others think about them are more prone to be addicted as social media gives them a chance to speak or express themselves without confronting anyone.

What is the symptoms of Social Media Addiction?

Social media addiction nowadays is a popular and unique phenomenon but can be diagnosed with some common symptoms which are stated as under.

  • Feeling elated while experiencing the social media on any of the electronics devices.
  • Being so engrossed in that feeling as the person loses that consciousness towards time.
  • Some physical symptoms of Social media addiction are blurred vision, not getting a proper sleep and experiencing headaches.
  • Feeling anxious when not connected to or being inaccessible to social media.
  • The Compulsive need to update about every day to day activity.
  • Such people like to be alone even when with a group of people.
  • Get rage when cut down from social media by force.

Treatment of Social Media Addiction.

The problem is getting much worse as teens are getting more and more addicted to social media as it has become easily accessible. The best way to diagnose and treat this addiction would be to consult a psychiatrist and a few sessions would help the person to cope up with the addiction. As this alters the behaviour of the person drastically and suddenly stopping the access may lead to critical withdrawal symptoms. The treatment for Social media addiction is not built on the same lines as those of alcoholics who can never have a drink but it involves moderation and directional usage of the internet which is much more on the path of healthy eating.

Prevention to avoid Social Media Addiction.

The symptoms show how social media addiction can hamper a person’s behaviour vastly. So, it’s better if we can just prevent it and just increase the value of our life. Some ways to prevent it would be having a fixed time to use social media, develop hobbies which keep yourself busy in your free time like reading, solving puzzles, etc. You may also spend that time talking to your friends or learn something new. I have seen many people who like to build projects in their free time, read novels, some also do write poems, songs. All I want to advice is do something that kills your boredom and also improves yourself in some way. Social media is just a utility so it should be used as one, don’t let it take control over you.

Withdrawal symptoms of Social Media Addiction.

From a recently conducted study, it has been suggested that people who have been social media addicts while presenting from it could experience an increased heart rate or abnormal blood pressure media if they keep away from electronic devices for a narrow bracket or technically 'go offline”. The withdrawal symptoms in this specific addiction are generally non-life threatening and the addicts could experience a surge in the anxiety levels. The repulsion also leads to an imbalance in the hormone levels in some cases while the penultimate symptom is a diminishing immune system. Some commonly observed withdrawal symptoms are:

  • Getting raged easily.
  • Staying alone, depressed.
  • Feeling anxious.
  • Not communicating or taking part in group activities.

5 Health Problems That Social Media Addiction Can Lead To!

Being away or oblivious to social media is synonymous to not following the herd. Social media probably is no more the latest fad; it is the given code to take a deeper look into the present age. The rewarding fact about social networking sites is their ability to transport us to people and places millions of miles away from us. This epoch with its dictates of overproduction and maximum utilization of labor, snatches away the boon of communication.

Some of the mental health problems that you may suffer from due to a social media addiction are discussed below:

  1. Peer Pressure- Social media use also creates the fear of missing out because you want to do what everyone else is doing. This evokes anxiety and will give rise to negative feelings and emotions, which again create mental health problems and stress and anxiety disorders
  2. Fatigue and Stress- When you are using social media, you are constantly switching from one task to another because there is just so much to do and see. This information abundance can tire out your brain, especially when it is received chaotically. Your brain needs time and room for absorbing the data and processing the information, but multitasking on social media makes your brain work overtime. This can prevent it from relaxing and it will become exhausted as it tries to deal with the barrage of information. Hence, the fatigue puts your mind under a lot of stress and you may not be able to concentrate on anything at all.
  3. Social Anxiety- Even though the whole point of social media is to allow people to stay connected with others, it doesn’t have the same satisfaction and element associated with actual human interaction, which is a crucial human need. In fact, in some ways, it is too distant and this is not a good thing for those who become dependent on social media as it can lead to social anxiety. Those who are already suffering from this problem will find it even more difficult to indulge in face-to-face interaction. Real human interaction can become extremely scary for people as it is becoming common to hide behind your computer screens and not go out at all.
  4. Distraction- Social media is just tailor-made for decreasing our productivity because you spend hours looking at everyone else’s life when you could be doing something else. This means that most of your time is spent on viewing photos, liking posts, and writing comments and these activities don’t really require the use of your intellectual abilities. They aren’t intellectual at all and distract you from activities that are such as reading, studying informational articles on the internet, etc. Your brain doesn’t get enough food for development and your intellectual abilities can decline in this way. Your brain will slow down and not be able to respond quickly in various situations.
  5. Insecurity- One of the major problems with social media is that posts typically present an idealized version of what’s going on in everyone’s life. Usually, what you see isn’t actually reality because everyone has their problems and issues. Nevertheless, you end up comparing your own life with that of others and think less of your own. If people in your newsfeed seem to be having a good time, it will make you envious and affect your mood negatively. Research has shown that widespread use of social media can demotivate people, make them aggressive and cause a decline in confidence.

So are you being adversely affected by social media? Here are some signs to look out for:

  1. Low self-esteem.
  2. Feeling low when you see other people's images and lifestyle.
  3. Envy of others people lives - wishing your life was like someone else's.
  4. Finding social media as your first and only choice of activity done for enjoyment.
  5. Not having as many face to face conversations with your relatives and friends and feeling disconnected.
  6. Being unable to do anything without feeling you need to share it online.

Alcohol Vs Social Media - Which Is More Addictive In Nature?

Alcohol Vs Social Media - Which Is More Addictive In Nature?

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.

How Is Social Media Affecting Your Mental Health?

How Is Social Media Affecting Your Mental Health?

Being away or oblivious to social media is synonymous to not following the herd. Social media probably is no more the latest fad; it is the given code to take a deeper look into the present age. The rewarding fact about social networking sites is their ability to transport us to people and places millions of miles away from us. This epoch with its dictates of overproduction and maximum utilization of labor, snatches away the boon of communication.

Social media gifts us with easy communication and wider access:

  1. Social media creates peer pressure: Coming in continuous contact with occurrences in other people's life can lead to mental setback. You may feel low on comparing your achievements with that of others. Consciously or unconsciously you are struggling throughout to be at par with them who are seemingly jubilant. Virtual peer pressure is realized by many. 
  2. It can bring us at close quarters with penitence: Persistent grief or regret can take a toll on your mental health. It can make you depressive. Depression is again not a healthy thing for personal growth and development. It usually results in lack of motivation.
  3. You tend to panic more through continued use of social media: If you have not been in touch with social media for a couple of days you are instilled with the fear of losing out on incidents. You panic regarding what has been happening all over the world that in reality will in most cases bear no effect on you.
  4. It accustoms you to the glamorous appeal of drugs- Social media tends to showcase the ills of society as glamorous contributing factors of life. It celebrates the vices of drugs and other addictive agents as virtues. Young adults are therefore easily incited to give in to addiction.

Positive effects of social media on your mental health:

  1. Social media will let you take a break from hovering tasks and responsibilities. 
  2. Helps you connect with long lost friends. Social networking sites will bring you close to new and old friends alike. 
  3. Real society is overly judgemental. It prohibits you from coming across as your true self. Virtual media allows you to come out of your cocoon and helps you feel comfortable about yourself.

Smart phone addiction etc comes under behavior addiction. Behavioral addiction is a form of addiction that involves a compulsion to engage in a rewarding non-drug-related behavior – sometimes called a natural reward – despite any negative consequences to the person's physical, mental, social or financial well-being. Behavior addiction needs to be curbed or controlled using your own self will power. Diverting your mind and body away from the circumstances which compels you for the addictive habit, with the help of physical exercises, games, entertainment etc can help you. Never sleep alone. Be always with your family even at night etc are some other tips. Willpower is the key always. Behavioral therapy also works well. Take care.

Know More About Addiction
Hello, I am Dr. Milind Barhate, psychiatrist practicing in Varli and Mumbai area. Now we discuss about the addiction.

Addiction is a disease and it is different from other disease. Most of the people believe that addiction is the only habit. They do not accept that it's a disease. Most of the other disease patient accept whatever this is, whether it is fever, malaria dengu, heart problem, diabetes, problem cancer etc. Patient accepts and go for the treatment. But in case of addiction, patient believes that he/she is normal. Even after there is a liver problem or because of addiction multiple problems arises. Some people requires only one quarter at night to fall asleep, it's not his problem and that's why they do not get it treated and it's a common issue.

Addiction now is increasing. Initially people goes for only alcohol, tobacco, smoking. Nowadays teenagers and children are getting drug addicted like Kaname, Ganja marijuana, charas, brown sugar and cocaine etc. Chemical addiction is also common addiction of the medicines or tablets or syrup.

So addiction is a disease it affects your brain and your body. After certain period of time, your brain and body gets dependent on such substance and because of this reason people generally take the substance repeatedly. There is a change in your brain. Chemical changes occur that causes impulsive inability, frustration, depression, psychosis, a lot of mood changes. In addition to it, it affects everywhere. It affects your body from brain to toe. When it affects your brain it causes lot of diseases like dementia, seizures. When it affects your lung it causes bronchitis lung diseases. When it affects your liver it also affects your liver for the coc's or cancer of the liver, or vomiting of the blood. It also causes blood pressure, diabetes, hypertension, heart problems and erectile dysfunction, reducing sperm count, reducing weight and appetite. It also causes change in behavior, change in sexual behavior, change in sleep and at appetite and also changing driving.

Because of addiction the chances of an accident can increase. It also affects your family also. We'd also affect at occupation also, at your economy also. So it affects almost all parts of your life like body, family, at occupation, at your economy social life and spiritual life. So it's a disease, but different from other diseases, and it may harm oe's life severely. Still the person believes that he is okay. It becomes habit and because of this attitude, most of the patients left untreated which ultimately end up to late stage for the treatment. They come with the mouth cancer and that stage even after if you stop the alcohol, it may ultimately result death. There is a treatment available for it. Treatment is little bit difficult and different from other diseases. So medicines are important to treat the problem.

There are medicines to control the withdrawal features. There are a medicine for sleeping problems, the treatment for constipation is also available as most of the tobacco smokers they're suffering from constipation. Early morning they do not get the pressure. That's why they are regularly taking tobacco and alcohol. Tobacco and smoking, so there are medicines for that problem. Tension and even if you are suffering from anxiety, depression or psychosis there is a medicine. Some anti craving medicines are also there to control your mood and craving for substance.

At the same time along with medicines, family counseling, accounting also necessary. Individual counseling also necessary. Social counseling also available for alcoholism. Alcoholic for Drugs Narcotics Anonymous is there, if a person takes a treatment for a longer time. If we take it, it went for only one day, there is no chance. If we took a treatment for one month, there is a little chance and if it continued treatment for 1 year, he's having 25 percent of the chances to come out from the alcohol or drugs. At the same time if he continues the medicines, counseling and social counseling and social support, family support for the longest, wait more than five years there are chances more than eighty percent to come out of this problem. Its lifelong business. There are well known relapses. Even after stopping for alcohol or drugs for five years or ten years there are chances of relapses. The long treatment is needed to prevent the relapses. Cure is not possible treatment because it is a disease of personality. When we counsel the patient, when we are doing individual counseling, we enforce the patient initially, we tell the patients about the disease model and and to make them accept so that they can overcome through it.

Alcoholism and drug is a disease. After accepting, the second part is to identify the character defect, because alcoholism and drug is not a major problem, the major problem is character, habit and a behavior. So second stage is to identify that character defect or behavior deface leading to addiction. After identifying that character defects, we focus that character defect and we work on that with the help of small step program and as the time continues if the patient is ready and motivated to work on it, there are the good chances to come out from this situation. The only thing is, first admit that you are an addict. Second come forward for a treatment and be patient for a longer treatment.

How To Get Rid Of Addiction?
Main Dr Manish Kansal hoon aur main ek Psychiatrist hoon, Delhi me practise karta hoon. Delhi aur Greater Noida me mere Hospital hain. Aur aaj hum baat karna chahenge Nashe ke bare me. Jese ki aap sabko pata hai ki aaj kal nasha bohot zada badh gaya hai, specially jo humare youngsters hai, college aur schools me, wo bohot choti umar me nasha shuru kar dete hai.

Common nasha jo hai aj kal, wo hai alcohol, cannabis, charas, ganja, bhang. Isme designer drugs bhi agae hai jese ki heroine, cocaine, ye sare drugs aj kal bohot choti age me he bacche shuru kar dete hai. School time me he start kar dete hai, friends ke influence me aa ke start kardete hai. Dosto ke chakkar me, experimentation me, family pressure me aa ke drugs start karte hai aur ultimately bahar nahi aa pate hai is problem se.
Kuch logo ko aisa lagta hai ki nashe ka koi solution nahi hai lekin nashe ka ilaaj sambhav hai. Youngsters ko, baccho ko nashe se bahar nikala ja sakta hai agar professional help li jaae to.

Ghar me log counselling karte hai but wo itni effective nahi hoti. Lekin nashe ka ilaaj sambhav hai dawaiyo ki form me, counselling se, psycho therapy aur bohot saare ways me ise theek kia ja sakta hai. Yeh ek bohot bada subject hai aur baccho ki zindagi ko bachaya ja sakta hai.

Main pichle 20 saalo se general psychiatrist hoon, but mera interest nashe ke ilaaj me bohot hai. Aur agar aap apne kisi saathi ka, family member ka, friend ka chahte hai ki wo nashe ki addiction se bahar ajae to aap mujhse Lybrate ke through contact bhi kar sakte hai.

Ek zamana tha jab internet buhat bari luxury hua kerti thi aur ajwaqt hai ke internet har sab hi ki pocket mein apke unglion ke sparsh ke oper available hogayahai aur who bhi unlimited data ke sath.tau doston yeh cheezon ka humari niji life per buhat hiasar parhta hai aur khas ker ke hum agar sex life ki baat karen tau data available hone ke sathsath pornography bhi buhat easy available hogae hai. Han! Aur who bhi sab ko apni apni privacy apni niji space mein. Tau iska humare sex life per tau asar parhega hi tau hum dekhenge yeh kistarah se parh raha hai. Aj dekheye pornography viewing mein humara desh Hindustan panchwain number per hai. Aur yeh kafi had tak kafi log iska istemal kerte hain, isko dekhtehain, kuch log kam kuch log ziadadekhte hain aur iski asar tau rahegi hi humari sex life ke operjis tarah se logon ke sawal atey hain iske oper se humne yeh kuch findings bataye hain.particularly humare desh mein pornography itni kyun popular hai? Tau iska sabseimportant ek jawab yeh hai ke humare yahan formal sex education yani jise hum yawn shikshankehte hain uski kami hai. Ab jis cheez ki kami ho, jis cheez ka knowledge na ho, knowledge hotabhi hai tau apne friendon se mila hua tuta phuta knowledge hai aur yeh jau half knowledge haiyeh humein kafi taqleef mein rakh sakta hai. Tau isi wajah se log jau kehte hain na forbiddenfruit is always more tasty waise jis cheez ka partiband hai who cheez humein ziada akarshidkerti hai. Aur isi ko le ker ke yuva verg khas ker ke pornography ke peche kafi samay viyat kerta hai. Ab iska asar hota yun hai ke log isey sex education ka ek zariya samajh bethte hain. Halan ke bilkul aisa nahi hai. Yeh mera spashmat hai pornography hai yeh ek sirf uttay jina nirmand kerneke liye agar dekhi jaye usko sirf casually dekha jaye tab tak thek hai lekin jab ap isko ek limit kebahar jaise ap chale jate hain tau yeh khatre ki ghanti bajata hai apke liye. Khas ker ke us waqtjab ap isey sex education ka zariya samajhte hain. Kyunke pornography mein jau yeh dikhatehain yeh sab hi cheezain qanoonan tor pe mumkin nahi hoti hain khas ker ke child pornography, violent sex, animal sex yeh sari cheezain qanoonan partiband hain aur naytik roopse bhi yeh sari cheezain ghinoni hain. Aksar isey ap education tool samajh ker ke agey barhtehain tau kafi taqleef mein asakte hain. Khas ker ke who yuva jau pornography mein dikhate hain who actors ke jau angupang hain usko dekh ker ke apne ap mein kafi hindbhawana mehsoos kerte hain. Ek parkar ki inferiority complex mehsoos kerte hain jaise ling ka akaar hai ya sambuqka jau samay dikhaya jata hai isko le ker ke logon ke mann mein kafi brahmanain paida hoti hainaur who apne apko inferior samajhne lagte hain aur aise cases kafi manokchikat ke liye atey hain. Waise dekhye jaye tau dekhye yeh ek industry hai jahan per modelling ek vayosaye haiyeh aise models ko choose kerte hain jau is industry ke liye fit hote hain. Tau isko dekh ker kesab hi logon ko apni tulna nahi kerni hai aur khuan ma khuan inferiority complex nahi bananahai. Dusra pornography apko addict banata hai, yeh aisi cheez hai jau apko bar bar dekhne permajboor kerta hai ap isme apna kafi qeemti waqt vastvayat kerte hain aur kafi apki education,job mein kafi pichrey reh sakte hain.apna niji personal life bhi is mein kafi disturbhota hai aur sab se mehtapurne baat hai ke isme forceful sex dikhate hain, violent sex dikhatehain yeh kafi had tak samaj mein yeh forceful sex ko uttayjit bhi kerta hai tau humein isko bilkulhi education tool ke hisab se nahi lena hai. Aur jaise hi yeh pornography ka humein addictionbhi nahi rakhna hai uske badley humein apne apko ziada se ziada productive work mein involvekarye. Internet available hai tau isey ap achi jankari prapt karye, kafi achi jankari apko mil sakti hai aur na ke pornography dekh ker kea p yeh sab ghalat fehmiyan nikalen. Doston! Mera apsenumra amurad rahega keh pornography kea p balli nahi banye, usko excitement ke roop se apdekh ker ke lightly lijeye aur uska anand utha sakte hain baqi usko academic tool mat banayega.
