Cell Phone Addiction? Better Call for Help!
So…do we need a 12 step program for some cell phone users? Perhaps…according to a study out of the U.K. and the University of Staffordshire. Study results show people can become as addicted to their cell phones as smoking or gambling. It wasn’t a huge study but 40% of 106 participating university students said they couldn't handle not having their phones and 90% reported that they took them wherever they went. It has to be generational since lots of people I know look for reasons to escape their phones. But there’s more…a staggering 35% said they used the communication devices to get away from everyday problems. Sounds like the reason why so many use drugs and alcohol doesn’t it? What about a cut back or cure? 32% had made failed attempts to cut back and 14% were willing to lie about cell usage. Call the show on your cell 872-5481 and we can talk about it!
