You must turn off your ad blocker to use Psych Web; however, we are taking pains to keep advertising minimal and unobtrusive (one ad at the top of each page) so interference to your reading should be minimal.
If you need instructions for turning off common ad-blocking programs, click here.
If you already know how to turn off your ad blocker, just hit the refresh icon or F5 after you do it, to see the page.

This page was discontinued in 2017. The best information I could find on the topic of addiction is here in Chapter 14 (Frontiers) in my online introductory textbook, Psychology: An Introduction, 2017-2018 edition.
