Text Message Addiction
Posted by George on October 15th, 2005

Forget about having a drug or drinking problem, this kids got an addiction of text messaging. His TM addiction has cost him almost $8,000 last year and his job. This kid’s finger must be super fast typing all those messages, using those tiny buttons. Guess there’s no writers block for this addicted kid.

He was sending about 700 texts a week and resigned from his job after bosses found out he had sent 8,000 e-mails in one month.

On any one day, he was sending about 300 e-mails to his girlfriend. He was texting her every day and probably spending £20 to £30 a week on texts.

    i definitely think the internet and all its tools are dangerous for addictive personalities. you see people getting carpal tunnel syndrome or whatever from blackberry usage. and optical nerve damage from staring at computer screens. so i guess texting can be a weapon for an obsessive personality.
    i think i’ll go throw my computer out the window now.
    later

    I think any kind of thing can be bad for a person with an addictive personality.

    Technology is good and bad.
