Some people are addicted to drugs, some to alcohol. Some are addicted to extreme sports and some to sex. There are those who are addicted to computer games, and those who are addicted to social life. I could probably go on for quite a while, but you get the picture. There are many things one can be addicted to, and most people are addicted to at least one thing. Doing comparisons between addictions can be risky though, as one addiction can be considered mostly harmless while another can be harmful both to the “user” and his/her surroundings.
Now, why do I talk about addictions? Well, in recent time there seems to be more and more addiction to cell phones, iPhone included of course. When I grew up, cell phones weren’t readily available, but they were getting more and more common. Now, at least in my country, most everyone have them and some even have more than one. If they lost their cell phone, they’d be devastated. I say that most things are ok in moderation. Others might not agree, but to each their own.
Also, as you might see (if you check for the author), I’m not Johan… Maybe you’ll see him this Friday, hmm?
