Last week we asked our readers, "Should the Mental Health Community Officially Recognize "Video Game Addiction?." The majority of you said that all behavioral addictions should be lumped together, with a close second going to "no."
Around 43 percent (114 votes) said that that all behavioral addictions – such as gambling, Internet and video games – should be lumped together under one category. Around 31 percent (83 votes) think that video games should not be recognized as a real addiction, while 17 percent (44 votes) think it should be. Finally, 9 percent (24 votes) think that *ALL* behavioral addiction categories should be abandoned.
Thanks to everyone who voted in last week's poll. A new poll is already up so be sure to go and vote on it.
