How ACUTE is
Your Phone
Addiction?
LOVE IS IN THE AIR BUT SHOULD YOU AND YOUR MOBILE SPLIT UP?

1. You're out with friends when you
notice your battery is on 3%, you...
Ask the barman if he can charge
your phone behind the bar.
Do nothing. You'll just enjoy the
moment and leave it to others to take
any pictures of the evening.
Grab your back-up battery. You
always carry two spares in your bag.
Turn it off. You'll turn it back on
later to make sure there hasn't been
an emergency at home.

2. You're at work but during lunch
you post a really funny photo
online so you...
Set your phone on notification
vibrate. Then you can focus on work
knowing you'll be alerted if someone
comments.
Check your Instagram on the way
home from work.
Set the phone on loud and vibrate,
and wait with bated breath.
Check your phone during your coffee
break and whenever you nip to the loo.

3. Your romantic life and your
phone are...
Intimately linked, but you don't
answer your phone during sex.
Related - you couldn't do without
your phone for arranging nights out.

a.
b.

c.

So interchangeable you can't decide
which is more important to you, your
love life or your phone?
A fun combination. With your 'find'
app, you know when your partner is on
his/her way home.

d.

4. Your phone is not where you
think you left it. You...
Feel unnerved. You can't remember
the last time you remembered to back
up your data.
Carry on with what you were doing.
You'll locate it in a bit.
Feel your stomach churn and pat
every pocket as you rush from room to
room trying to find it.
Immediately check all the obvious
places, then look in the fridge and the
cooker, just in case.

a.

b.
c.
d.

5. When you're with friends or
family you...
Use your phone quite a bit. Someone
needs to take the photos.
Turn your phone off or ignore it. If
it's important whoever it is can always
call you back later.
Get frustrated when they frequently
tell you to leave your phone alone. It's
not that simple.
Can't resist checking your phone in
between chatting with everyone.

6. You've been sent to a mountain
retreat, no phone or internet access
for a week, you feel...
Fine with it. You managed to get
one bar of reception by scaling the cliff
behind the cabins, so you've managed
to download your daily yoga moves.
Okay. In fact, you're thinking about
deleting some of the social apps when
you get back to civilisation.
Anxious. You keep reaching for it
even though you know there's nothing
new to scroll through.
A little unsure, but then liberated.
Without relying on likes or similar
to feel good, you actually feel better.

a.

b.
c.
d.

7. It's night time. Your phone is...
In your hand but you've got it set
to 'night shift' - you know you should
limit blue screen time before sleep.
In the hallway, switched off.
'No radiation or bad vibes in my
sanctuary, thank you very much.'
In your hand while it's charging
- after all, your phone needs refreshing
and recharging during the night just
as much as you do.
On the bedside table.
Then you can hear any
notifications so won't miss
Check out your results.
