Many studies revealed that there were several components of Internet addiction. For instance, Block (2008) claimed that Internet addiction has four components: (1) excessive Internet use, often associated with a loss of the sense of time or a neglect of basic drives; (2) withdrawal, including feelings of anger, tension, and/or depression when the computer is inaccessible; (3) tolerance, including the need for better computer equipment, more software, or more hours of use; and (4) negative repercussions, including arguments, lying, poor achievement, social isolation, and fatigue.
In addition, there has been substantial research exploring the relationship between Internet use and certain variables, such as subjective well-being, self-esteem, and psychological needs. Several studies have examined problematic Internet use and Internet addiction among high school. For instance, Kim and Davis (2009) indicated that self-esteem was related to Internet addiction and Caplan (2003) found that negative feelings such as depression were predictors of problematic Internet use. Bulut-Serin (2011) examined problematic Internet use among students and discovered that there was a positive correlation between life satisfaction and problematic Internet use. However, few studies have explored the correlation between Internet addiction and subjective well-being, self-esteem, and psychological needs.
This study examined the relationship among these variables separately and together. Moreover, in contrast to previous studies, this study examined whether these variables explain certain dimensions of Internet addiction. Therefore, the aim was to investigate the association between subjective well-being, self-esteem, and psychological needs and Internet addiction subscales in depth.
