The data were analyzed by using of Pearson correlation and step by step regression.
Results: Stress from parents' expectations and their expectations have a positive relationship with Internet addiction, while social support of friends and family has a negative relationship with online addiction. Also, the results of regression analysis showed that social support of friends (p <0.001), stress due to parents' expectations (p <0.001), stress due to their expectations (p <0.001), and family support (p <0.01) significantly predicts students' Internet addiction. The predictive variables of the predictor account for 69% of the variance of Internet addiction. The predictor variables explain a total of 69 percent of the variance of internet addiction.
