    Blackberry addiction 'worse than drugs'

    Advertisement



    [via PC Advisor] Apparently. It seems unlikely to me, as I live in a less than salubrious part of sarf London and have yet to be offered pure 'push email' on the street. But it also seems to be the concensus – exclusive to all newspapers (to borrow a phrase from Private Eye). 'Experts' are warning that Blackberry email devices can be so addictive, their owners may require Priory-style care, similar to that given to drug-addled celebs. -- More

    Re: Blackberry addiction 'worse than drugs'

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I remember awhile back, I was at work and just texting away on the ol berry. Well I wasn't watching where I was going and walked into the tines of a forklift. Had a big ol knot on the my forehead above my left eye for awhile.

    Then there was the time I was jumping in my truck and was reading an email, whacked the side of my head on the door jam.

    Come to think of it, where can I get one of those Blackberry Helmets?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~now are I think people are taking this a little to far. I have had my blackberry for 2 months and I really enjoy the fact that I receive all my stuff to one place but just because I type while I drive doesn't meen that I'm addicted .besides in our society everything either causes cancer or its addicting!

    Re: Blackberry addiction 'worse than drugs'

    Addiction –noun - the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming, as narcotics, to such an extent that its cessation causes severe trauma. (dictionary.com)
    Now...does anyone here actually exhibit 'severe trauma' when they don't check or use their Blackberry? Seriously?
    I really hope not...because that’s just SAD.
    Having addictions isn't cool people....

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ i just post on on thread like this. There is any article about this in today's New York Post. And no, just cause you use it in the shower doesn't mean you are addicted. Haha.

    Re: Blackberry addiction 'worse than drugs'

    I do more surfing and e-mailing from my device than I do a computer. Also I will be talking to my mother and I will pull out my BB and start typing. Yeah it's rude but who actually waits to check there BB when it goes off? IM ADDICTED AND WHAT? And if we can get free time off by "saying" im going to re-hab who wouldn't take it???

    You say that if I take a vacation and don't bring my bb with me the world won't end. But that's like saying that hard work never killed anyone. Why take a chance?

    I thnk we all are addicted to the BB wouldnt you say? Why else would we have signed up for pinstack.com. Having addictions is not bad at all, its actually healthy. I am addicted to my grilfriend, is that unhealthy?

    Re: Blackberry addiction 'worse than drugs'

    I posted this in another thread, felt appropiate to repost here.


    I know we joke around on this site, however seriously..there is a thing called the "power" button.

    We all have berried at some inapproapiate area or time, but I weighed the options.. deal with it NOW and avoid a huge mess later, or deal with it later and miss a major deadline, contract, goal..etc etc. Realistically most of us, myself included can and have turned off the berry.
