    Researchers say that many workers are now completely addicted to the use of their BlackBerrys, and the habit shows no sign of waning.

    Workers are now increasingly connected to both their personal and professional lifestyle, leaving the two irreversibly merged.

    "I've heard stories about partners of BlackBerry users asking for a table for three at restaurants... one is for them, one's for their partner and one's for the partner's BlackBerry," Dr Julie Cogin from the Australian School of Business told News Limited.

    I would have to agree, blackberry does take a toll on the personal life, but while that happenes, it also makes our personal life easier, as we don't have to go to work and know that there will be a billion of unanswered emails that will attack you untill you die!

    See?
    I fully expect "Blackberry addiction" to be included in the next DSM [The
    American Psychiatric Assosiation's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual ]

    "dude I was a cocaine addict for three years, but I went to rehab and I am now living a new life."

    "man that's nothing. I've been using this new thing called 'blackberry' since it first hit the streets way back. I think I'm going to be on it for life."

    "can't you go to rehab?"

    "naw man, I don't wanna. I mean really, I could leave it if I wanted to! Really, I, uh, I could!"

    Nice. Maybe we could get drugs off the streets if we have every addict a BB?
