Introduction

The reason why I decided this particular book needed to be written was because I have noticed a growing and very disturbing tendency among people all over the world today, to become engrossed in a virtual world, as long as they can keep the real world at bay.

This book is going to tell you all about the harmful psychological long-term side effects of digital dependency. It is also going to tell you whether you are addicted to your digital world, and how that happened. Also, you are going to read about some incidents, in the life of yours truly, and I am certain you have also come across it, or some such similar situation, if you are suffering from digital dependence.

Anybody reading this book is going to wonder, why I keep referring to America, in my examples, and keep talking about Americans. Well, 1st of all, my best friends are Americans, and they need to know what is happening in their own country through the eyes of a totally detached onlooker. I could have said, the UK, or taken the example of any other country in the world, with which I am familiar and its social, traditional, cultural milieu, with respect to digital dependency, but the term “Americans” in this book can serve equally well for Australians, Britishers, French, African, Asian users of the Internet, because this problem is global.

Also, in the conclusion part, you are going to find a link, about the dangers of putting all your information on the computers, thinking that this is a nice place for storage, when, once upon a time, you had a safe little diary. Nobody could gain access to that little diary, once it was locked away in your cupboard. Not even your nosy siblings or your spouse. 
And once your computer is linked to the Internet, adios information, anyone with a little bit of technical know-how can get access to it, pulling it out of your computer through your IP address. But as this book is not on computer hacking and computer security, but more about how to wean yourself away from a chronic digital addiction, well, read on.
