Internet addiction is a means of self-expression, entertainment, schoolwork, relationships and so on that PG students have adopted it as a form of self-expression, entertainment, schoolwork, relationships, and so on. Self-esteem is an important aspect of an adolescent's personality. The study's sample included 228 PG students from Central University of Punjab.
