Staying occupied helps them forget the everyday problems that can burden us down and render us unproductive. There’s no time to think about the pain of loss ones, the rantings of loved ones, the accustations of those who think they are not living up to expectations. This addiction provides them with a false sense of self-worth and power…. Security. At the end of each day they feel accomplished nut at what cost?
