Nomophobia

16 Oct

This is the fear of being without a mobile device. A California therapist has started a support group at the Morningside Recovery Center, to address this addiction. According to a recent study, 66 percent of folks suffer from it.

Replacement therapy is part of the treatment so that patients keep their hands busy. They are also required to go ten days without their device.

I know too many people with this condition. Could you do it? How long could you go without your device?
