Have you ever wondered if you were a technology addict? Can you walk more than a couple of feet without having to call someone?
Can you stop at a light without having to check your phone? Once in bed, can you go through the night without having to check your smartphone on your nightstand?
An addiction is an activity you can’t stop doing. People can be addicted to many things—alcohol, drugs, gambling, TV, religion, sex, you name it. They can also be addicted to being “connected.”
If you feel a compulsion to constantly check your iPhone, e-mail or anything else that gives you a buzz, you may have a challenge ahead.
Try this: After work, turn off your computer, tablet, and smartphone—anything that causes you to be connected. Just do it for one night. If you can’t, it may be time to call Houston and tell them you have a problem.
As time goes on, addictions become worse…not better. The need for a greater fix increases until eventually you can never get enough and you can’t stop.
Now is the time to stop before it gets out of control.
Just pull the plug and smell the flowers. Your life is already going by faster than you realize.
Don’t speed it along any quicker.
