Man Goes To Rehab For Netflix Addiction

Apparently being addicted to Netflix is real. A 26-year-old man apparently checked himself into a mental health clinic in India because of his addiction to Netflix. He says he was watching seven hours of shows EVERY SINGLE DAY for more than six months. That’s a lot of TV watching, about 1300 hours in all. So, why rehab? Apparently watching that much TV caused him to suffer from severe eye strain and insomnia. Doctors treating the man believe he likely developed the addiction because he was unemployed and turned to Netflix as coping mechanism and an escape.
