Intervention May Be Required

"Hello. My name is Jovan Washington and I'm addicted to cell phones." Everyone starts clapping for me and I then tell my story. That is, of course, if I were addicted to cell phones. Who knew?
"Talking, texting or playing games,” for six hours a day. Does that sound like addiction to you? Well, apparently it is.

Two kids in Spain, aged 12 and 13, were recently admitted to a mental health center to treat their addiction to cellphones. Their relatives were concerned that they were unable to function without their cellphone. So, off to the crazy bin for ya! My parents would never hear the end of it if they sent me off to a mental institute. They couldn't even do an intervention first??

Oh well, they have been undergoing treatment for the past three months in a mental facility that specializes in cellphone addiction. You learn something new every day.
