    Ah but according to certain philosophers, love is an addiction. ;)

    I think most of us are addicted to phones.
    I need my phone for work, chat with my girlfriend and a lot of things. Is very useful.

    When your phones rings and it's your boss, you know you're in trouble. When the phones rings and it's your girlfriend, you know that you're in even bigger trouble.;)

    I like Castro as a person, but I'm not a Cuban.
    I always dreamed of visiting Cuba, but apparently this year I also will not be able to do it.
    Yes, I like to chat with friends. I miss studentlife when we lived in the same room or 5 minutes walk from each other.

    I would say that there are 2 types of people. 1 addicted, and 2 developed a habit. 1 cannot do without it, and 2 use it out of habit when they don’t know what to do

    I haven't used a smartphone for several years. I ONLY use old 2G GSM mobile phones from ca 2005 and computers (desktops and laptops).

    I am addicted to my phone when because I do 80% of my work on one. I mean I mount my videos on my laptop but everything else is made on my phone.
    But I can leave it at home and go out without getting "sick" without it

    Not a bad addiction as we can control our laptop time, but our phones ring whenever they want to.

    @Spoiltdiva
    That is the part I hate the most about mobile phones, specially these smart ones with whatsapp, fb etc.
    Rings every 5 minutes, extremely distracting...

    Smartphones have become great DRAs. I practice dopamine detox by not using them 1-2 days in a month. It's usually a Sunday.

    With you it is not an addiction, but rather a useful tool as to earning a living.

    Generally I only check the networks for a while in the afternoon and I don't consider myself addicted to the phone. If I have it for work reasons, but it is not essential. I can live without him without any problem

    Yes, a phone to me is like a part of me like I'm a cyborg half human half attached to a cellular device. In the world that I live in I need to carry a cellphone on me at all times so its a must have. Its a calculator, gps, messanger, I could go on. Its literally an attachment to me I never leave my house with out my threes my three include wallet, keys and phone.
