Cell Phone Addiction Presentation Transcript

Slide 1 - Cell Phone Addiction Andres Cortez
Slide 2 - What is cell phone addiction? The American Psychiatric Association defines addiction as: “a chronic brain disease that causes compulsive substance use despite harmful consequences. Health, finances, relationships and careers can be ruined”(American Psychiatric Association). The definition of cell phone addiction can be debated but be thought as: a lack of control over the use of a cell phone, with consequences such as the inability to succeed in school, harm relationships and fear to be out of cell phone contact also known as nomophobia(Family Bootcamp and English Dictionary).
Slide 3 - Dopamine Loop and Opioid System Theory Susan Weinschenk’s theory is that our “wanting system (dopamine)” overpowers our “liking system (opioid system)” which results in us seeking more than we are satisfied with. In other words, this can explain why people have a tendency to constantly be checking and responding to messages.

New research suggests that people, on average, check their phones every six minutes (Willard). And I believe that there are young adults that check there cell-phone every minute when they do not have anything else to do
Slide 5 - Signs of cell phone addiction Excessive compulsion to check cell-phone Usage of a cell-phone in an inappropriate place Replacing face-to-face Interaction.
Slide 6 - Excessive compulsion to check cell-phone This is when people have the need to check their cell-phone frequently. It can be to check if they received text messages, calls, emails, and notifications from social networking applications.
Slide 7 - Usage of a cell-phone in an inappropriate place Two examples of this is when people with authority like parents complain about family member using a cell-phones at dinner time.   It can also be when students prefer to check their cell-phones while a professor is conducting a class.
Slide 8 - Replacing face-to-face Interaction. This is when people limit their interactions with people physically in front of one another. Quick fact: “replacing face-to-face interactions is one of the most common warning signs of cell-phone addiction” (Borreli)
Slide 9 - Prevent cell-phone addiction People can prevent cell phone addition by being conscious, being strong, and being disciplined. Stay away from cell phone as much as possible until you don’t need. Turn off notifications Focus on the person you’re talking to Watch Video : https://bit.ly/2PgifT2
Slide 10 - Consciousness People can be conscious by checking themselves by determining if they check their cell-phone because of boredom, loneliness, or anxiety. If that is the case, people can start to find a something else to be distracted by. You may try reading books, playing sports, interact with people (group discussion) , traveling etc.
Slide 11 - Be strong People can be strong by avoiding to answer any incoming notification, but if it is too difficult to do that because of the beeping sounds and vibrations, that can be solved by turning off the alert signals.
Slide 12 - Discipline People can discipline themselves by not using a cell-phone during certain times. People can start by choosing a certain time during the day, and set a goal of not using a cell-phone during that period of time. For those who cannot gain control over their situation, they can use StayFocusd. A browser extensions that will block any website after reaching the time period that it is set to.
Slide 13 - Conclusion Stop using cell phones until you don’t need it. Be Strong Stay focused
