Effects Of Phone Addiction

 

Addiction

is a spiritual bondage, it is slavery because the one afflicted with it is in subjection to a force, a power that has caused him to lose control of his own will. A prisoner handcuffed is under the control of the prison guard and must go and do what he says. The addicts’ spirit is handcuffed he has lost his will to say no and is driven by spiritual forces that control his desire for his particular addiction, and even though it is harmful to him and to the ones he love he cannot stop on his own.

Recent researches regarding smartphone addiction  have identified that there are differences in terms of addiction when it comes to men and women.

Some reports have shown that women and men, while equally capable of becoming addicted to smartphone use over time, do seem to become addicted to different aspects of the phone for their use.

Women are more likely to spend more time using social media, texting and reading while men are more likely to get addicted while using their phones for watching videos and movies and surfing the Internet.

While no one may really be surprised by this discovery in any study, it does raise a few points that many have long considered regarding technology and smartphones.

Youths are more likely to grasp the intricate uses of all the features of a smartphone and pick up on trends a lot faster than most adults, making them more likely to spend more time using the phone for different reasons.

Also, most adults may not have the free hours during the day due to commitments like work and other relationships while youths are more willing to devote time to using the phone, leading to more use, more tolerance of the device, and then longer use to get the feelings of satisfaction they desire out of using the phone.

Phone addiction is said to bring communication problems. This has proven to be true for both adults and youths that overuse a smartphone.

Because they are spending so much time using their smartphones and operating in a very solitary world where there only interactions may occur over text messages and other messenger services, people are becoming less and less able to communicate appropriately and properly with other people.

This can have long-term effects not just on the culture and future generations but it can have an impact on the way people interact socially and work, having vast effects overall.

While there is nothing conclusive as of yet because smartphones and cellphones have not been in regular use in the culture for a long enough period of time as of yet, there are studies that have shown some possible long-term health effects that can arise from the overuse of smartphones.

Health Risks: These health risks can range from the fairly subtle and benign, including things like neck and back pain and strain, to issues dealing with Carpel Tunnel Syndrome from repetitive use to even more serious possible effects involving links to cancer due to overexposure to the chemicals and microwaves used in the use of cellphone technology.

There are still a number of factors that need to be determined but early feedback on some studies does indicate there are real risks that can arise when the phone is used too much.

A few studies regarding the excessive use of smartphones and cellphones and the type of impact it can have regarding the finances of a person or family have been done globally.

There are some indications that an addiction, just like an addiction to drugs or alcohol can, can have an adverse financial effect on a person.

Many people get caught up in the use of their phone and end up going over their usage limits in terms of minutes or data, leading them to rack up very large bills on a monthly basis that can lead to all kinds of financial hardships like falling behind on other bills so that you can pay off a phone bill.

When this happens regularly, it is easy to find yourself falling deep into debt quickly just so you can keep up with your phone bill.

Affects Sexual Life. It has been discovered that people who are excessively using their smartphones may have less of an interest in sexual activity and a highly diminished sex drive.

Studies indicate that because the person may be using their smartphone so much as a form of not just entertainment but almost as a sort of lifeline to the world that the person may have no real interest in engaging in any type of sexual behavior or may only want to do so very infrequently.

This can cause a great deal of stress among couples where one party may have a phone addiction and spends all of their time using the phone instead of engaging with their partner.
