How Much Of A Smartphone Addict Are You?

 

 

Hey there guys. How was your day? I hope you all are doing well. Today we will be discussing an important topic How much of a smartphone addict are you? If you see around yourself you would realize that we all are addicted to one thing or the other. It is just that we don’t recognize it. But addicted people are everywhere.

The reason why we fail to detect addicted people is due to the fact that most of the times we only considers things like drugs, masturbation etc as addictive. But we failed to realize that addictions could be as simple as your smartphone addiction. You may find people around yourself who are constantly looking at one screen or the other. They simply don’t get tired and are in a way damaging themselves. Addictions destroy us. They kill our productivity and turns us into douchebags.

If we don’t check our addictions in time then it is only a matter of time when we will be destroyed by it. Many of the times when I tell people they are addicted to something or the other. They don’t recognize it because it is subtle and takes your inner conscious to recognize it. An addicted person will always make excuses that it is healthy and they are actually happy with it.

Many of the youths are getting destroyed due to just that. Youths always have this tendency to try out new things. But someone should tell them that we don’t need to try out every other thing. We could remain happy with our daily lives. You just need to find a purpose in your life and then you are set to go. If you are highly addicted to your smartphone then it may destroy your eyes and sleep cycle. Smartphones are awesome piece of tech but they can be equally dangerous if not used properly.

Here are some quotes on smartphones:

“Phones with numerical keypads worked best for dialing phone calls. Incidentally, phone calls tend to be the primary function of a phone. ‘Smartphones’ completely ignore these basic facts, resulting in some of the least intelligent devices I’ve seen yet. Oh the irony.”
― Ashly Lorenzana

“Smartphones are tools which fools fiddle with when they are around people that they don’t have the courage, or, the intellect, to converse with.”
― Mokokoma Mokhonoana

“People who smile while they are alone used to be called insane, until we invented smartphones and social media.”
― Mokokoma Mokhonoana

“Old media companies will be further challenged in the next 15 years, as a new wave of user-generated content washes over the Internet, thanks to the increasing availability and affordability of portable, digital-based electronic devices. The cameraphones which seemed like such novelties just a few years ago will be in everyone’s purse and pocket a few years from now.”
― Ian Lamont

“When you had your smartphone you were a walking vending-machine of whatever you’d ingested that day’, she told him. ‘It was difficult to talk about deeper things that mattered, because you were constantly distracted by Internet litter. You’re now able to focus and give necessary attention to deeper issues.”

“I feel about my phone the way horror-movie ventriloquists feel about their dummies: It’s smarter than me, better than me, and I will kill anyone who comes between us.”
― Colson Whitehead, The Noble Hustle: Poker, Beef Jerky, and Death

There are 4 billion cell phones in use today. Many of them are in the hands of market vendors, rickshaw drivers, and others who’ve historically lacked access to education and opportunity. Information networks have become a great leveler, and we should use them together to help lift people out of poverty and give them a freedom from want.
