China's Internet Addicts.

The Internet is taking China by storm, and as a result, there is a growing number of internet addicts - and treating these internet addicts is becoming a booming business!

Wang Yiming, 21, is a self-confessed internet addict, one of a growing number in China. He used to spend hours online each day, often going without food or sleep. His face is drawn and sallow.

A month or two after I started surfing the internet, I failed some of my school tests, but I was too afraid to tell my parents. When my father found out, he was very angry.

"But I couldn't control my addiction. Friends were also telling me that I was on the net too long, but I thought: 'It's my life, I can do what I want.' I became a real loner, was withdrawn, and wouldn't listen to anyone."

I wonder what they're doing to his face, though - is it part of the treatment? Link
