Addiction Hurts: Test Yourself

  • Do I hide the behavior? Am I secretive about it?

  • Am I building a tolerance to the activity? Do I need more and more to have the same sensation?

  • Is this affecting other areas of my life? Has my school work or sleep suffered?

  • Do I need the activity to relax or improve my mood?

  • Have my relationships suffered?

  • What long term effects could this have on my physical, emotional, mental, social well being?

Violent Images and Aggression

  • Pornography and violent images change your brain.

  • Elementary students: kids who play more violent video games become:

    • more verbally aggressive

    • more physically aggressive

    • less helpful to others. (Anderson, Douglas, Buckley, 2007)
