My name is Nicky, and I’m sort of addicted to my phone.
You see I attempted a digital detox from social media. I still checked for emails. But not the countless times I used to that drove me to distraction and hubby to frustration. Not to mention my five-year-old daughter, Olive, begging for attention while I “quickly” replied to an email or post that took longer than promised. The thing is, I didn’t think I had a potentially damaging problem until I researched for this story. I discovered our addiction is worrying on so many levels – communication, relationships, parenting, education, psychological, health and financially.
