Am I addicted to my cell phone?
Addiction is evident when an obsession with something disrupts the more important things in life, like personal relationships, schooling, or jobs. People can become addicted to pretty much anything. While teens are far more likely to become addicted to their cell phone, they will become adults and that addiction may still be unresolved. People who are shy and have low self-esteem are more likely to become cellular addicts because, with text messaging, you can make ‘texting friends’ that you never actually have to meet, very much like internet chatting. The cell phone has been dubbed ‘the new cigarette’ and ‘one of the biggest non-drug addictions of the 21st century.’ Psychiatrists consider mobile phone addiction to be an obsessive-compulsive disorder. Mobile phone addiction can totally isolate its victims, ruin them economically and even turn them into criminals. Addicts can easily run up phone bills over $1,000 a month, and, like drug addicts, some turn to crime to pay them. Take this quick assessment to learn more about the warning signs of cell phone addiction and help you determine whether or not you may be a cellular addict.

Right is the time to include the issues of Mobile/ Cell addiction in Text Books for precautionary measure. Arrangement of seminar/ symposium quoting the bad impacts thereto may guide for a good day.
My name is Mishu Panda and I would like to submit to you a 4 minute Music Video about college students with their cell phones. I have provided the link below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSTSIS_gEsE&feature=c4-overview&list=UU5CS33zBiJ3uHPyh1jtba6A
My sole purpose of this video is to make everyone aware of the disconnection that’s taking place on campus, in homes, on the streets and in the entire world due to cell phones, iPods and all this technology. I want people to see what they look like by watching others on this video.
When students leave the class they go directly to their phones gazing at the blue light and walking like zombies. They are oblivious to the world around them. They have no eye contact with other people. Many opportunities of social interaction are missed including perhaps romantic encounters. This is an epidemic with so many addicted that it has fused itself into a culture of disconnection and insensitivity.
I would appreciate you taking time in checking this out and giving feedback. I would also appreciate if you can pass this link around on Facebook, twitter or email to those whom you think would benefit. Thank you for your report , your time and your help.
