    ban cells unless handsfree from cars especially ban texting & driving with a fine comparable to DUI.

    i have the opposite. i have to encouraged myself for weeks just to make a phone call. when someone says "call me sometime" it sends me into a panic. my friends think that i avoid them and i cannot even tell them about this as i did once with one friend and they just looked at me and said "just call me". thank god for email lol
