What is workaholism?
Workaholism is the idea of intentionally choose to work more that normal hours per week. The people how are affected by this idea called workaholic. It’s clear that we talk about people who choose by his own decision to work a lot. Therefore, people who are forced to work extra hours by law or under pressure are excluded in this category.
In my idea workaholic can be developed in people who love their job. Otherwise, if someone doesn’t like his/her job and still is a workaholic, may suffer a mental disorder.
Workaholic may be considered as a remedy for those who have social/private problems in their house or public places that prefer to spend their time at work rather than with their families or being in society. Also workaholic can be a choice for those who have low-paid jobs in order to compensate their shortage.
Mental problems caused by workaholism
It mostly depends on what kind of job we are talking about. For example, if the job is stressful, exposing workaholic to extra hours of stress can cause serious mental problems. In contrary, jobs that are not stressful and the workaholic likes it, might not cause any mental problems. Even it can bring benefit for the workaholic because he/she receives mental-reward and arises self-satisfaction feeling in his/herself.
