Default Study finds Addiction to Technology similar to Drug Cravings

Quote:
Withdrawal symptoms experienced by young people deprived of gadgets and technology is compared to those felt by drug addicts or smokers going “cold turkey”, a study has concluded. four in five students had significant mental and physical distress, panic, confusion and extreme isolation when forced to unplug from technology for an entire day.

They found college students at campuses across the globe admitted being “addicted” to modern technology such as mobile phones, laptops and television as well as social networking such as Facebook and Twitter.

It's time to unplug, I don't want to end up like those people.

Considering all addiction looks similar, whether it be food, gambling, sex, or drugs, I kinda figured as much.
