If you have an Internet addiction the solution is simple chop your hand off, well that was the answer for a 19 year old Chinese boy.
Up to what point do people need to get in order to try to help addictions?
It happened in Nantong, Jiangsu, China, where a 19-year-old teenager made a drastic decision; he would cut off his own hand in order to cure his addiction to Internet. The chosen “criminal” tool was a kitchen knife and he used it to get rid of his own left hand.
But he would not do this at home; the scene chosen was a public bench, though. The only thing he had left at home about his whereabouts was a note where we stated, “Mum, I have gone to hospital for a while, don´t worry, I will definitely come back this evening.”
The police finally recovered his left hand, which had been chopped off at the wrist and left lying on the ground. Thanks to the police efforts to find the hand, the surgeons at the hospital were able to reattach it to his arm, although, it was not guaranteed that he would regain full mobility on his hand.
All it takes is asking for help and being conscious of your current situation you are facing. Specialists and almost every human being would suggest many alternative treatments rather than chopping a hand off.
