It’s worrying that I now seem to be incapable of doing anything without checking my phone every so often. It’s not as if I’m even expecting a phone call/text message/email, I just can’t help myself.
I’ll sit down in the evening to watch something on TV I’ve been looking forward to, and before I know it, I’ve zoned out and I’m snooping around on Twitter.
Not only that, I actually have to stop myself from picking up my phone in the middle of the night when I can’t sleep. And it’s vital that I actually remember to stick it on silent before I do get into bed, or I’d be woken up every few hours with alerts from Facebook and Twitter.
It’s clearly becoming an issue, I even found a book about it.
Thank God iPhones didn’t exist when I was at school. I would have left with zero GCSEs – unless there was, of course, an exam on social media.
I wouldn’t go as far to call myself an addict, but it’s always just so tempting to pick my phone up and have a play – for no particular reason. It’s slightly worrying. Anyone else the same?
