Gadget addiction is enjoying a particular activity very much such as laptops, tablets and game consoles.

The first cause for gadget addiction among youth is the desire to get more freedom. The reason for this situation is video games provide a window to another world, where the person playing the games holds all the power and decides the fate of all the virtual lives. This is in contrast to the real world which is full of stress, failure, bullying and conflicts. In other words, freedom that comes from the video games helps teens feel more powerful and confident. Now we are living in a new millennium where 97 percent of children ages 12 to 18 would prefer to play videogames on laptop, tablets or game consoles. Research has found that 41percent of people who play online video games admitted that they played computer games as an escape from the real world (Hussain, 2009).
