Workaholism is often confused with hard work. Some people who work on the Web seem not only to disregard its dangers, but to actively promote it. They see it as a badge of honor — but is it really? On the contrary, it’s a serious issue that can damage Web teams.

Soon, they neglect their family, friends, health, sometimes damaging them all irrevocably.
