iAddiction Revisited

31 Jul

In the early days of this blog, I wrote about being addicted to my iPhone. In that post, I stated my belief that Apple is the biggest drug dealer in history. They make products that people want and eventually need. Just look around. People are always looking at their phones. At restaurants. In class. In the car. At the movies. Our society has truly become addicted to this technology.iPhone Addict

I am no exception because I am on the iPhone all the time. From game apps to educational apps, I am always messing with them. I tell myself that the games help keep my mind sharp. Actually, they are melting my mind.

However, Twitter is the one that really gets me. I always look at it because I am afraid that I am going to miss something. I look at it before I go to sleep. I look at it when I wake up. The other night, I looked at it while I was watching a movie on television. Actually, I was listening to the movie while I looked at Twitter.

I don’t just read Twitter. I check to see if someone favorited or responded to one of my tweets. I check to see if I have another follower. It’s terrible.

That’s why I am cutting myself off for a few days. I am not going to look at Twitter (although this post will automatically be tweeted. I am not going to play games. All I am doing with my phone is call and text.

Knowing my iPhone habits and seeing it in others, I am beginning to think that there should be an iPhone Anonymous support group. Every other addiction has one.

    It’s not restricted to the iPhone, Rick. As the song goes, Everyone’s On It.
