Cell Phone Addiction

Are You Afraid to Be Without Your Cell Phone?

Do you suffer from Nomophobia, the fear of being without a mobile phone? According to a new survey out of the UK, two out of every three adults have anxiety, and some are even terrified of being without cell phone contact on any given day.

As we become dependent on technology, it's no wonder that people feel like they've lost a limb if they forget their cell phone at home (guilty as charged!), but becoming anxious to the point of terror is quite another issue.

Tell me — are you afraid to be without your cell phone during the day?

Wow, I would be so, so ashamed if I had this 'disorder'. Of all the things to fret or worry over, get real. I even make a point to spend at least an hour or more each day where I don't check my phone, at all, for anything. Obsessively compulsively living on your phone isn't healthy. And what I find interesting is the same people now addicted to their cellphones are the same people that were screaming bloody murder about people being 'addicted' to the internet five-ten years ago.
