Cell Phone Addiction

Posted on: November 18, 2010


No matter what anyone says about progress and the fast pace of our society and how addictive we have become to cell phones,  I will never again take my cell phone for granted.  Say what you want about the “addiction” and “what did we ever do before cell phones were invented” but I will ask you to do without your cell phone for a day and see how you cope.

Cuz that’s what I have been doing this past week.  Living without a cell phone.  And I have to admit that it has complicated my life by at least 1000%!!  With 4 kids spread out in different schools and working full time, it was next to impossible to function without being able to contact my kids to know where they were going to be in order to pick them up and it was downright upsetting when I was running late to do the afternoon pickup and could not reach my husband to help me out. 

My cell phone broke on Saturday and as fast as it broke I was online ordering a new one.  It will arrive here tomorrow and I will be back to feeling happy that I have a connection to my inner world again.  So many times I was one of those people who would say “what did we ever do before cell phones” but the fact of the matter is that cell phones are here and I stopped questioning why or how or should I and gave into the fact that having one would and could make my life so much easier to navigate.

I went a step further and decided to get myself a blackberry because that will be my next addiction…having my email and other information right at my fingertips.  And then one day I will ask myself “what did I ever do before I had my blackberry?”
