‘Sudden Onset Boxset Addiction Disorder (SOBAD)’

Do you suffer from SOBAD? Then you’re not alone. Doctors have seen an astonishing explosion of this little-known disorder, with estimates that it affects 9 out of 10 people. Symptoms include an inability to reach for the remote control, an unfounded belief that there’s still time for one more and an overpowering craving to know what happens next. If you or someone you know suffers from SOBAD (Sudden Onset Boxset Addiction Disorder) please call the SWITCH-IT-OFF hotline for help and advice.
