The internet has become an important part of modern-day life, and the global population has risen to almost 3.8 billion using the internet. The association between heavy use of the internet and mental disorders has evolved over the past few years. Impact of Internet Addiction (IA) is characterized as a disorder of impulse control that does not include an intoxicant. IA refers to an impairment of different roles in life. IA, which is characterized as unregulated internet gaming behavior with negative impacts on psychosocial functions, is a consequence of Internet gaming disorder (IGD).
IA has been linked with a lot of mental conditions. Low self-esteem, impulsivity, poor sleep quality, mood disorder, and suicide have been reported to be associated with it, hence impact of internet addiction can be extremely harmful. A study using a self-report questionnaire of 2,114 students (1,204 males and 910 females) diagnosed with IA found that people with IA had greater symptoms of ADHD, depressive disorders, social phobia, and aggression, especially among male adolescents. It is proposed that the ability, insights, and self-awareness through yoga and mindfulness practices can target multiple psychological, neurological, physiological, and behavioral mechanisms involved in addiction and relapse in a major analysis on yoga and mindfulness as complementary therapies for addiction.

Although substance use disorders commonly occur with other mental illnesses, it’s often unclear whether one helped cause the other or if common underlying risk factors contribute to both disorders.
The repercussions of drug abuse extend well beyond the individual drug addict, as HIV/AIDS (human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immune deficiency syndrome), aggression, tuberculosis, fetal effects, crime, and disturbances in the family, workplace, and educational environments have detrimental impacts on society and cost billions of dollars. It is the ultimate objective of the nation’s investment in substance abuse study, irrespective of the factors at work, to take more successful steps to discourage drug abuse and reduce its related costs and effects.
