The Addiction of Technology

The Alcohol Rehabilitation Center in India often has patients or known patients struggling with technology addiction and specifically the younger generation.  Are you someone who is always glued to their smartphones? Are you a technology addict who feels compelled to check their smartphone every two minutes? Today, theAlcohol Rehabilitation Center in India talks about the addiction of technology.

TheAlcohol Rehabilitation Center in India states that technology addiction is an impulse control disorder that involves obsessive use of mobile phones, the internet devices or video games, despite knowing negative consequences to the user. The disorder may also be referred to as digital addiction.

Bill Gates didn’t let his children have cell phones until they were teenagers. Steve Jobs famously didn’t let his kids use iPads or iPhones. Why would these Tech titans stop their children from using products they have created? Because they know the grim truth: Technology addiction is a very real problem.

Every machine created is to extend our facilities. We have visual capabilities so there are telescopes and microscopes. Some 20yrs before there used to be those blue box telephones to dial numbers. My Grandma states “it was such a sucking thing to spin the roll ten times to dial a number and today I just spoke out the name to dial the number and it was that easy. Technology has made things at ease, technology is like a boon.”

So the problem is not technology but our compulsive attitude towards it. Technology is just an enhancement of our capabilities, nothing more. People use gadgets compulsively i.e they use gadgets unconsciously. Once we start using phones, we don’t know when to stop.Once we start taking selfies, we don’t know when to stop clicking pictures either.We use everything so repetitively and unconsciously that we are just compulsive on using every gadget. Now they have become an addiction just like drugs.

An expert of internet says that 70% on the internet traffic is only pornography.

What has happened to us? People become addicted to whatever new thing they use. Why? When we have such phenomenal tools of communication, such as the internet, in our hands, isn’t it important that positive things overwhelm the world, rather than such negativity? Humans use things so compulsively that they forget the right way or right ethic to use it. How can anything made for our convenience have the right to make you obsessive and out of control?

If we use every gadget consciously, if we use everything for our well being and others well being, there will not be any issue. Technology is not what we need to handle. Technology is a tremendous enabler, nobody should ever complain about it. It is humans who use it exploitatively.
