    Law enforcement personnel are seen outside a massage parlor where a person was shot and killed on March 16, 2021, in Atlanta, Georgia. ELIJAH NOUVELAGE/AFP via Getty Images The man charged with killing 8 people in Atlanta spas blamed his "sexual addiction."

Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Robert Aaron Long was arrested in connection to a string of deadly shootings that took place in the Atlanta area on Tuesday.

The telly presenter, 53, admitted she was “kissing goodbye” to her brain cells, taking five ecstasy pills in a night - while other caners would take just half of one. 5Davina McCall, 53, says she is lucky to be alive having suffered with drug addiction as a youngsterCredit: PA:Press Association In an interview with DJ Fat Tony on his show The Recovery, she said: “It’s a miracle I’m still alive. “My drug of choice was heroin.

    Does it bother you to go to places where you find products that you like, do you want to buy some or all of them and you can’t? Do you feel an irrepressible urge to make the products your own? If this happens to you frequently, you may be addicted to shopping. The compulsive shopper may feel a huge desire to buy something, also anxiety and anguish about not being able to obtain it, euphoria when he acquires it, guilt and depression if he cannot pay for what he longs for. Those who are addicted to shopping have impulses to have more and more goods, they even stop doing other daily activities to buy products that they do not even need. Photo: Reformation.

    More than a third of young adults report symptoms of smartphone addition — regardless of how long a day they spend using their device, a study has found. Researchers from Kings College London surveyed 1,043 people aged 18–30 about their smartphone usage, sleep quality and smartphone use reduction strategies. Around a quarter of the volunteers reported using their phone for at least three hours each day, while 19 per cent used their device for more than five hours daily.  According to the researchers, 406 of the participants met the criteria for having 'smartphone addition'. They reported behaviours such as losing control of how much time they spent on their phone, anxiety when separated from their device and neglecting other things. Both 69 per cent of those in this group and 57 per cent of those without smartphone addiction reported getting poor nights' sleep. While smartphone addiction is not presently recognised as a clinical diagnosis, excessive and detrimental device use has been attracting growing concern.

    Brain implants controlled by a mobile phone and recharged wirelessly via Bluetooth could help cure addiction, Parkinson's and depression. The device, roughly the length of a US penny, controls brain function for long periods without the need for regular invasive procedures to change the batteries. LEDs built into the device are the size of a grain of salt and use light to manipulate neurons in the brain.  Tests in rats found it suppresses drug addiction and researchers hope it could also be used in humans to treat neurological conditions.   Scroll down for video  The device, roughly the length of a US penny, controls brain function for long periods without the need for regular invasive procedures to change the batteries A smartphone connects to the implant wirelessly and builds on the success of previous models which were mounted to the head.     'This powerful device eliminates the need for additional painful surgeries to replace an exhausted battery in the implant, allowing seamless chronic neuromodulation,' said Professor Jae-Woong Jeong, lead author of the study from The Korea Advanced Institute of Science and...
    A WOMAN says she can't even look at herself in the mirror after steroid withdrawal caused eczema to erupt over her entire body.

    Your coffee is messing with your mind. A study by addiction researchers has revealed that the beloved beverage is fooling drinkers into yearning, through the same modes of addiction as other drugs. “Addiction can be characterized as a condition where increases in wanting are not met by concurrent increases in liking,” the researchers from the Friedrich Schiller University Jena in Germany wrote in their report, published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology earlier this year. Their study involved 56 students — 24 heavy drinkers, meaning they consume three or more cups per day, and 32 occasional or non-coffee-drinkers. Scientists surveyed participants with a series of images, asking them to divide pictures between those they found pleasant or unpleasant, which included comparisons between coffee and other drinks, as well as non-beverage-related face-offs, such as a skull and a puppy. In each round, the keystroke for positive and negative responses remained the same, so researchers assume that someone who loves coffee would smash that like button as quickly as they do for other agreeable images. They found this wasn’t the...
    Meghan Markle voiced her fears that social media has the same addiction effects as drugs in a recent interview. The Duchess of Sussex closed her personal social media accounts in 2018 before rejoining Instagram using a joint account with her husband, Prince Harry.

    WHEN she was just 10-years-old and still at primary school, Courtney Daniella Boateng started watching sex online. Here, the 23-year-old reveals how her addiction consumed her until she finally confronted it four years ago. 6Courtney Daniella Boateng struggled with porn addiction for nearly ten years "Staring at the computer screen, I gasped in shock at the video of a man and woman engaging in oral sex. Aged just 10, I knew I shouldn’t be watching this, but I couldn’t stop. All the grunting and grinding – was this the “sex” that they raved about in films and music? I couldn’t tear my eyes away. It was the first time I’d seen anything like it. I had always been an inquisitive child, with a constant stream of questions about anything from animals to science, and when my parents were at work or busy, I turned to YouTube to satisfy my curiosity. So, when I was in my final year of primary school in north London in June 2007 and sex became the focus of our hushed playground whispers,...
    Sunday night played host to a historic evening at the 2020 Emmy Awards. At just 24, Zendaya became the youngest actress to ever win an Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a drama series after starring in HBO's "Euphoria."

    An enzyme has been found in the brain of men which is responsible for sex drive. A study from Northwestern University investigated the role of aromatase in the organ and found the enzyme converts testosterone into oestrogen.  These hormones are known as the male and female sex hormones, respectively, but creating oestrogen is crucial for male sexual function.  It is needed in high levels to drive libido and is essential for erectile function. Without oestrogen being made from testosterone, a man's sex drive plummets.  Researchers also found aromatase is produced by a single gene, called Cyp19a1, opening up potential routes to target the enzyme. By successfully isolating the gene responsible for creating the enzyme, researchers hope to develop drugs to treat male sex addiction and low libido.  Scroll down for video   A study from Northwestern University investigated the role of aromatase in the brain and found the enzyme converts testosterone into oestrogen.  This process is key to mal esex drive (stock) The role of aromatase in the brain has been the topic of lots of research, with scientists struggling to understand its purpose.  ...

    AUSTIN — Drug overdoses have skyrocketed this year — and Black and Latino communities are being devastated. About 1,400 people in Cook County have died of opioid overdoses, already surpassing last year’s death toll, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office. Half of the people who died of overdoses this year are Black. Black people are being hospitalized for overdoses at seven times the rate of white people, according to Illinois Department of Public Health data from June. The West Side has long been the epicenter of the opioid epidemic, and multiple community programs have sprung up to support people struggling with addiction. But by March, the coronavirus pandemic had swept in, shifting attention from the opioid crisis to another. The shutdown and social distancing guidelines aimed at curbing the spread of coronavirus made it more difficult for health and treatment centers to provide clinical care, recovery groups and counseling to those suffering from opioid addiction. Combined with the hopelessness from the pandemic, those challenges have contributed to a devastating rise in overdoses and deaths, experts said....
