Scientific research has confirmed obsessive selfie-taking is linked to narcissism and mental health issues... And we can't say we didn't see this one coming.
"Cognitive behavioural therapy is used to help a patient to recognise the reasons for his or her compulsive behaviour and then to learn how to moderate it."
