  1. We all spend more time on the Internet than we'd like to admit. But what happens when your laptop become more important than your loved ones? On this episode of True Life, you'll meet three young people so obsessed with being online that it's ruining their lives.

    Danielle barely looks up from her smart phone long enough to connect with her family. Now, her husband is threatening to leave her unless she drastically curbs her habit. Can Danielle turn off her newsfeed before her status goes from "married" to "single"?

    Garry's so fixated on supplying his followers with a constant stream of nearly-nude selfies that he has no time for a job and no place to live. He's been crashing with friends but they're demanding he either kick in some rent or be kicked to the curb. Will Garry detach from his online persona and get back on his feet?

    Alexandria suffers from severe anxiety and spends almost every waking moment surfing the Web. She's failing high school, has few friends, and her mom's about to confiscate her computer. Can Alexandria finally power down and work to overcome her fears?

    Their screen time fuels them like a drug. Can they unplug before they crash? Find out on True Life: I'm Addicted to the Internet.
