I Am Addicted to My Cell Phone

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 7,384 People

    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.

    I am truly addicted to my cell phone

    and have been ever since I first purchased my first one. I carry it with me where ever I go either in from to room in my home and when I am in by backyard, for gardening, swimming, sunbathing, grilling different foods, eating outside, partying, hot tubing, and in the sauna too...

    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.

    I can't go a minute without having my phone

    with me when I put it down for a while I feel as if I lost it and if I don't find for a minute after looking for it I destroy the house looking for it just to find it on the kitchen table.

    I love my cell phone

    so much. I feel lost when it is not in my possession. My family and girlfriends call me at all hours of the day and evening. Everyone just loves to chat regardless of the time.

    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)

    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...

    Yep, too addicted, but I think it is mainly due

    to my job. The hour lunch I am stuck taking (that is unpaid) gives me two options. The first is to try to converse with the people at my job. The second is to try and relax by doing something I enjoy. Well, since I rarely enjoy the conversations I have with the people that I...

    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...

    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 am addicted to my cell phone.

    I just cannot be without it. I take it everywhere when I am outside in my backyard swimming, sunbathing, on the grill and eating on the patio with others or gardening and at work, appointments, running errands, and shopping.

    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!
