1. As much as I don't like to admit it, I am properly addicted to my smartphone. I cannot imagine a day without it and forgetting it at home in the morning is guaranteed to make me sweat. Do you consider yourself to be addicted to your smartphone?

Yes, I very much am !

2. Always having a smartphone in hand or in sight has caused me to aimlessly browse apps and websites without even realizing it, much like going to look in the fridge with no intention to actually eat or checking the time on a clock and then immediately forgetting the time you just read. Do you feel this way too?

Yes, I find myself opening apps and websites mindlessly or just mere seconds after closing them

3. Another side effect of smartphone use is a decreased attention span or inability to do just one thing at a time. I find it more and more difficult to focus on longer tasks, watch slowly developing movies or tv shows or just wait while doing nothing. Have you noticed this too?

Yes, I think I have these difficulties too

4. Even though I consider myself to be addicted to my smartphone, there are some instances when I would never use it, no matter how tempting. Do you find smartphone usage in theses situations (other than to take pictures) to be disrespectful? ( I do !)
