Do you suffer from Nomophobia?

Quote:
Nomophobia :the fear of being out of mobile phone contact.

The phrase was coined by a U.K. study commissioned by SecurEnvoy as an abbreviation for no-mobile-phone phobia, and it found that two-thirds of mobile phone users get anxious when losing their phone, running out of battery power or finding themselves in a location without network coverage.

The study also showed that younger people (18 to 34) are more likely to be nomophobic, and the level of nomophobia has increased from 50 percent to 66 percent in the last four years. It also found the average case of nomophobia causes stress levels similar to those of suffering anxiety related to "wedding day jitters" or going to the dentist.

My phone stays switched off unless I'm testing apps or need to make a call (I cant remember the last time I did that though).

I used to suffer from that years ago, but I've now been a non smoker since February 2006.

Hell no.
I would just assume go back to before every damn person seemed to have one, and a tablet, and every other little damn tech-toy. Things were much simpler then.
