Do you find it difficult to leave your smartphone even for a minute or have cravings to check it without any real purpose? Chances are you have become an addict and need professional help.

According to psychiatrists, medical authorities worldwide need to formally recognise addiction to internet and digital devices as a disorder.

"Singaporeans spend an average of 38 minutes per session on Facebook, almost twice as long as Americans," said a latest study by Experian, a global information services company.

According to Adrian Wang, a psychiatrist at the Gleneagles Medical Centre in Singapore, digital addiction should now be classified as a psychiatric disorder.

"Patients come for stress anxiety-related problems but their coping mechanism is to go online, go on to social media," Wang was quoted as saying in a South China Morning Post report.

Obsession with online gaming was the main manifestation in the past but addiction to social media and video downloading are now the trend.
