Since 1979, a mere ten years ago when the microcomputer first started coming to Britain in quantity, there has been very extensive growth in two particular areas; in the growth of computers and, sadly, of drugs. With the simultaneity of this growth and the intensity with which some people became involved with computers, it is perhaps not surprising that in the early 1980s we began to hear some suggestions of the possibility of ‘computer addiction’. The word addiction has been applied to the compulsion of drug-taking since the early 1900s, and indeed it could be argued since 1779 whence the example ‘his addiction to tobacco is mentioned by one of his biographers’ (quotation from the Oxford English Dictionary about Johnson).
