    It feels as if my Cell Phone is glued to my

    hand. I feel uncomfortable whenever I don't have my Cell Phone along with me. It is my lifeline & I simply can't live without it...

    i use my phone to get out of awkward situations

    or avoid confrontation which is how the "addiction" started. but i can honestly say im out of my shell and getting better at not being on it so much.

    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!

    I moan at people (family,

    friends) who use their phones all the time. And it frustrates me how people are constantly on them. BUT.. I'm such a hypocrite because I am also one of those people. Sometimes I feel lost without it and actually use it for NO apparent reason. I go out of my way to find something...

    I feel like I care too much about social media,

    and also my phone distracts me from some of my priorities. I've been trying to cut down on phone usage, any beginning advice?

    Yes, I will admit I am addicted to my phone,

    but it is because it tends to help me stay still when I need to sit...plus I can look things up and investigate and look things up. Read books with out having to go across town to go to a book store...when I am bored I also play on my phone... I wouldn't however die without my...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    not really I actually hate this phone.

    but I hate service providers even more. I mean I hit a dark spot now for at least an hr or two now while on a train... don't even have a way to contact my service provider to find out if its coverage lose or not... Canada wide texting and calling unlimited my butt!

    The second I wake up I grab my phone

    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)

    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...
