So what's the most destructive addiction which is now harming our lifestyle a lot? Is it alcohol, drugs, gambling, etc, or something different? I think it's different which many may know and guess right.

Smartphones or Mobile phones, the current Gen-Z ( people born between 1996-2010 ) is heavily infected and addicted to them to the point that they don't understand what they are doing or going to do.

I have observed that my elder brothers, sisters, or parents who were born before 1996 actually had some idea and target of what they will pursue in the future, whether they fail or pass that wasn't their worry.

But now most of the gen Z people don't have any idea nor visions or plans for what they will do, they sure have big dreams but what they will do to achieve them has no answers and I wouldn't say I was not one of them.

What Went Wrong

What's the reason for this confusion? I think the main disturbance here is the smartphone which shows us abundant varieties of carriers and people get confused in either watching others or in selecting any carriers.

The smartphone was invented for a different reason and it's no shock over time its usability and influence changed which happens with every other invention.

Personal Experience

So a good amount of distancing is needed or else you will get addicted to it. I have personally been a smartphone addict for 3 years instead of using it to gain something, I wasted it on entertainment like playing digital games. I had an option to go for a streaming career also but the smartphone addiction was giving me so much pleasure that I lost any ambitions until life spanked hard on my butts, lol.

It's not hard to get away or cure this addiction. Just follow some of these points which I implemented myself and you will be good to go, but the time to cure it varies from individual to individual.

  • If you have a charging board close to your bed, either change that room or charge your phone in a different room so that it will be out of your vision till it gets charged.

  • Switch off the notifications of social media apps and allow access of notifications to important apps and mostly either mute the group chat apps or notifications. I have personally realized we spend way more time than what we are supposed to while chatting in groups. Simply use social mode for no distractions at all.

  • Find a different hobby or activity. C'mon there are so many awesome and interesting activities to get a refreshing and quality time other than your phone like going out for a walk, exercising, playing outdoor games, reading books, etc. Multiple interesting and productive activities to choose from.

  • Have a strong willpower don't let that puny non-living creature control your actions. Compare the harm and positives of your addiction. Is it supporting your dream or goals if no, then why man? You were far better than this earlier before addiction c'mon get that self back if you want a different kind of life and to achieve your goals or dreams.This is the most working point to cure it.

Final Thoughts

The outside real world is better than the fake reel world if you like to accept truth, just try to look outside of your phone you will be able to see it. Smartphones are like knives that can be used to cut fruits as well as other things, haha.

One who can use phones without getting extra distracted and wasting time doesn't need any changes in their life. C'mon see how lazy you have become after hitting teenage, you stop the works which adds value to your life and procrastinate and switch to using your phones. you do have a sense that your priority is the other work yet you choose the phone. See this is where the problem starts and you immediately need to cure this addiction.

Again I will say this wake up early from this addiction or someday you will face a very troublesome situation in your life completely changing your life and getting on track after that will be be hard. And the easy way to cure and not to fall into addiction is to have a disciplined, strong willed motivated self. Improve on these traits first and you will be good to go against any addictions.

The scars of that spanking aren't great at all so I would advise you to get in track without experiencing that phase.
