4.2
Imagine that you are a member of the deciding board of the DSM and are considering something called “texting addiction” as a candidate for inclusion in the manual. According to the proposal, individuals who suffer from “texting addiction” prefer electronic devices to face-to-face time with friends, family, and others. They are unable to ignore their devices, even if the consequence for checking the device is severe (being removed from class or receiving a monetary fine). Sufferers endanger their lives and others when they engage in texting while operating a vehicle. Discuss whether “texting addiction” should be considered for inclusion in the DSM.
