I Am Addicted to My Cell Phone

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 9,250 People

    People always ask me

    why I'm on my phone all the time. My phone doesn't interrupt me. My phone doesn't gripe at me. My phone doesn't judge me. My phone does what I tell it to do. My phone isn't a s***head. The end. Using your phone as an outlet isn't any different than writing in a diary all the...

    I left my phone home one day,

    and I kept turning to pick it up while I was at work. It felt like I lost a limb. There needs to be a 12-step program for this problem!

    I do not know of a woman

    who is not addicted to her cell phone. I am one of these women and I carry my cell phone with me where ever I go. It is always attached to my clothing in some fashion. When I am undressed, my cell phone is near by because I do not want to miss a call from others.

    I am on my phone all the time

    when there's school, because of emails from school, announcements from the student government and group works. On breaks, I am on my phone, because I find it relaxing whenever I do Twitter and FB. You can't do those stuffs on busy school days. So I wanna point out here is...

    I remember being brought up in the early 80's

    and my friends houses all had the phones with the circle dial holes that would go back every time you selected a number, then it was phones with buttons then came the answering machine then the fax machine and then the cell phone, and when I think how far we have come...

    Does anyone hate the RED ALERT icon notifying

    you there's something? Like new message, missed calls, new invite....blah blah blah. I get anxious and have to click it to open. But I rather know if there's something out there for me. You know, keeps me in the loop!

    When I use apps, and I get something asking me

    if I want to read it, I never do. I don't care about rating the app, I just want to use it. I wish you could turn that off. So that it stops asking you if you want to rate a nap.

    God. I'm so fixed on my phone it's unbelievable.

    ..It's no longer a 'want' but a 'need'- I have absolutely everything on my phone; personal and work related! it's become such a necessity that there are times I feel lost without it . For those of you who come from a time when we didn't have cell phones, it seemed almost genius...

    If i loose my phone i am all panicked.

    .. You would think because my phone was really important to me i would back up all my data... I do not... another fear is bigger than getting organised...That is losing all my privacy by putting all my private ' stuff ' on location less cloud servers.

    It comes in handy. You can store all your

    important info in a small system and have it when you need it. I actually don't care that i'm addicted to my phone it is a great thing. There are times where I have nobody from my school to talk to or see so I can come on a app like this. My phone has been very helpful to me...

    and play apps. But when it's time to go to bed I make sure to play all my games and get a new high score before I sleep (to make me feel good)
