Rehab for Netflix addiction

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

An Indian man has checked into digital rehab after his Netflix addiction derailed his life.

The unidentified man watched the streaming app for a staggering seven hours every day over the last six months, The Hindu newspaper reports.

According to Netflix, the average subscriber streamed about 50 minutes a day in 2017 and the company’s CEO has admitted that the service’s competition is sleep.

The man reportedly checked himself into the National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences (NIMHANS) in Bangalore last week.

Six months of unemployment triggered his daily journey into escapism, the newspaper reported.

A specialized clinic called Service for Healthy Use of Technology (SHUT) is dedicated to treating people with addictions to technology

if you are addicted to something you are a victim, if you just can't or too lazy to find a job, you are worthless loser, now which one do you want to be?
