In the article, “Are You Addicted to Your phone?” (Upfront, Bubar, 2018) many people, especially teens, are becoming more addicted to their phones. I learned that even people within the tech industry are saying that their products are too addictive now that people can’t even put it down. This is a growing health crisis among young people. This addiction is really bad, Americans check their phone every 12 minutes and in China 24 million people ages 6 to 29 are internet addicts. Many people are also getting more addicted to the apps on their phones everyday.
This topic is a huge problem. It’s scary to see that many of us are really that addicted to our phones that we can’t even put it down for 10 minutes. I believe that we need to start getting rid of this habit and look into ways that we can get rid of this addiction. If we don’t start looking into ways to get rid of this addiction it will only keep getting worse by the day.
