We are still in the process of writing our own literature. In the meantime, we encourage those suffering from internet and technology addiction to read other 12-step literature and discuss it with other ITAA members.

The big book of AA

As IT addicts, we have found much wisdom in Overeaters Anonymous literature. In particular, The 12 Steps and 12 Traditions of Overeaters Anonymous, and The Twelve-Step Workbook of Overeaters Anonymous are great resources. They are a useful reference because OA members cannot abstain from food, just as many ITAs also have to use IT most days. The Overeaters Anonymous The Steps Made Simple pamphlet is also a helpful primer on how to work the steps.

Clutterers Anonymous is also a useful reference, as some ITAs practice “digital hoarding”, obsessively collecting and consuming digital content.
