INTERVIEW QUESTIONS FOR STUDENT NEWSPAPER

Hey, I'm a student at Queen Mary University London, and if I could get some help that would be very much appreciated.

1- Is there scientific proof that gaming can be as addictive as alcoholism or gambling?
2-Warcraft seems to hook people the most, what makes it so addictive?
3- Any statistics for gaming addiciton?
4- Any horror stories regarding addiction to Warcraft?

Cheers,

Oli Galvin-Jones

We leave the statistics for

We leave the statistics for the professionals at the American Medical Association who are looking into adding it to the DSM-V either alone or as part of a more generalized internet addiction disorder. Or the APA, the professional association of psychiatrists who are working with the AMA on this. Perhaps you should consult them on the more technical aspects of your request. As for the stories, we're really more about healing here, we'd prefer to share those. Perhaps the WoW Widows or WoW Detox websites would be better for you with regard those parts of your request. Thank you. :|
