teenagers are vulnerable. it is not a matter of being stupid or lazy, it is just nature. today there many more "temptations" than in the past years, and, yes, it may affect teenagers' lives. but this is the "modern society". every addiction is difficult to deal with, and it is not possible to speak in general. you need to understand the reason of that addiction, and they are different in every single case. if you cannot understand those reason, you cannot achieve permanent results. the question here becomes really really complicated, and i think that when you talk of addiction you need the help of someone specifically trained. psychologists for example, or psychanalist or whatever, but you need to solve this problem as soon as possible.
