We FOUND the REAL cause of Smartphone addiction
The paradox of our time is solving a tech problem by adding more technology.
Why is everybody trying to solve a tech problem (Smartphone Addiction) by adding more technology? Do we really need another app (on our phone) to solve our addiction to these omnipresent devices? Perhaps we should note that the problem is that we use our smartphones for literally EVERYTHING: calls, texting, social media, reading the news, watching TV, listening to music, tracking workouts, writing notes, checking calendars, alarm-clock, purchasing clothes, food, anything; flirting / dating, taking a taxi, driving (GPS), checking the weather, meditation, catching a thief (home security), etc. The list is endless.
What’s the real problem? Well, basically the fact that we do everything with and on our smartphones.

Smartphone Addiction: The new drug that is killing us softly…
Over the last 6 months, I’ve been investigating and researching the phone addiction topic and basically, some people consider it just an harmfulness addiction while another group believes we are facing the new tobacco or the new sugar. There is indeed a lot buzz going on and the media has covered it with a great sensationalist touch. I heard crazy things like Smartphones are like “digital heroin for children” or “People would rather give up sex than their phones”. A round of applause for these headlines, please.
