You may think, ‘It’s different!’ when one compares addiction to heroin to that of addiction to their cell phone.
Those who are addicted to their phones are not living in reality.
Just as that drunk or doped up guy, or mad man talking to himself, live in reality, so too those who are addicted to their cell phones.
People have died taking selfies. People have broken their bones, so busy looking at their phone they don’t see what is in front of them.
People have lost opportunities, friends, experiences, making their lives that much bleaker because they are more focused on what is on their phone than what is in front of them.
Alone, afraid, they take solace with their ‘drug’ of choice, the so-called Smart Phone, which is really, Mind Control.
