I would like to interview someone for an article I am writing on Internet Addiction... Thanks :)

Hello guys and gals,
my name is Federica Valabrega, I am 25, originally from Rome, Italy.
I am a journalist now based in the Washington D.C. area and working for an online magazine called Culture11.com
I am writing a piece on the existing controversy among Psychiatrists and others on whether the disorder of Internet Addiction or Compulsive Computer Use should be classified as a proper mental disorder and therefore cured appropriately.
I am looking to have a human element in my story, I would like to show to my readers what is means to be hooked to the computer without being able to control it. I don't know it what this means, I have not idea how painful it would be for someone to be willing to share their experience being an online gamer.

But I want to tell others who don't know what is means and what are the complication in people's lives when they become addicted to the computer and if they wish to fix it and how they would suggest others with their same problems to do it as well.

If you are interested in being interviewed, please contact me at fede.valla@gmail.com and we can schedule a phone chat.

Thank you so much,
Best regards.
Federica Valabrega
