The Phone Addiction Workbook : How to Identify Smartphone Dependency, Stop Compulsive Behavior and Develop a Healthy Relationship with Your Devices
by Hilda Burke




Overview -
A Step-by-step Guide to Stop Your Endless, Useless and Anxiety-Inducing Checking, Swiping, and Liking
Smartphone technology has fundamentally changed the ways humans live, work, and communicate. But being always connected has trained people to constantly check in and instantly respond to messages. Even worse, many smartphone apps are specifically designed to prey on users' addictive impulses through the use of compulsion loops that work like slot machines, rewarding one with dopamine surges in the brain each time a notification or like pops up.
The result is the recognized disorder of phone addiction, which is closely related to gambling addiction and substance abuse. Its consequences include stress, anxiety, intimacy issues, and more. This interactive workbook, written by an expert counselor and psychotherapist, offers a guide to understanding addictive behavior, its effects on you and your loved ones, and the steps to curtail use and make more time for yourself.
Limiting smartphone use is much easier said than done. Luckily, this helpful workbook offers exercises and activities for creating healthy relationships with all devices.
