I'm going to show that to my housemate who spends WAY too much time with WOW.
But it still seems that it's just a more severe SYMPTOM (as opposed to a separate condition) of the same thing that gets people shutting out the rest of the world using other things. In my lay opinion of course seeing as how I'm not a doctor...
Well, I think (someone correct me if I'm wrong) that all addictions are just pleasure center addictions, and so they all have the same root. I'm really not sure what sets one apart from the other, besides the way in which the pleasure center gets stimulated. Yet, they are classified separately, perhaps because the treatment is different?
