Pedagogical Research, Vol.1 No.2 December 2004. -

The aim of this work was to examine how often an addiction without drugs at student population occurs, and to establish eventual correlations between certain addictions. Through inductive empirical approach to the research, i.e. pools, on the pattern of 140 students, we established certain behaviour pattern which, because of its repetitive nature, can confirm our assumption that it is, in fact, addiction without drugs. The problem we confronted is impossibility to establish exact state of addiction, because the definition of addiction without drugs is not clearly defined and classified in scientific methodology, like in criteria of measurement of severity and heaviness of the addiction. The results that we gained are warning us to face these new types of addiction, which are very disturbing, because often addiction without drugs are followed by psycho-social problems very similar those of substance abuse

addiction. The important point is that very few researches are made in the world that we could rely on in this work. This work shows that there are many mutual characteristics for both addictions, with or without substance abuse. The results we analysed are in the same range of those made in the world, never the less, some addictions are even more expressed here, so there is no question whether there should be more en gage ment on prevention of these types of addictions in youth population. This, before all, imposes the need that the addiction without drugs should be defined and classified through scientific methodology, that than would be in wide use.
