    I am addicted to my phone.... I go on it probably 4-5 hours a day. I have this app "checky" which stated I have been on my phone for around 190-200 times in 24 hours. :O

    I am going to make either my Mum have my phone/ put it out of reach. I need to alter my time usage as time is valuable lol.

    I bet you guys also go on it a lot?

    The first few days are the hardest, you almost have "withdrawal" symptoms but then you realise you don't really need it if you have a computer. Internet becomes your best friend and yes you do get a lot of work done

    There is something wrong with our society today.

    Everybody is glued to their phone, smart watch or any other type of gadget which is a barrier to effective communication.

    No body wants to hold a proper conversation with people any more, the rather whatapp, text.

    I know! It's Unfortunate, that's why I made this thread... any advice to stop going on my phone often, and any other suggestions of things to do instead?

    Back in my day there was no mobile phones, hardly any TV or computers. Our way of socialising was out playing football in the streets and our curfew was when the street lights came on, best childhood ever.

    What's wrong is all the sheep keep buying into the new "lifestyles" and gadgets dreamt up in some sterile/hipster marketing boardroom. It's the same for phones, the same for Facebook, the same for Twitter etc. - and funnily enough, all these things link up.

    I always find myself admiring the people that admit to having the old style phones.

    Cheap plastic status symbols. Eurgh.

    I've got one though. And do I use it for anything apart from making phone calls and sending the odd text? Nope. This is part of the reason I came to the above conclusion. For people to say they have their whole life on these things, well they really have bought into it hook line and sinker.

    Highlighting the fact that these instant messaging type social networks are actually anti-social networks. They take all the mystique out of life, they take all the mystique out of dating, and reduce communications to hastily typed out IM's.

    They have also reduced intellectual capacity, reduced literacy skills, etc. as Blackstarr says above.

    And everyone bought into it like lemmings. Making excuses up like "It keeps me in touch with people I otherwise wouldn't have been able to keep in touch with". As if people couldn't do that before.
