I'm Addicted

Hi, my name is RevRee and I'm addicted to my cell phone.

Being an addict, I sometimes look around and observe other people with cell phones. Seeing those beautiful, magnificent, shiny objects, big and small. So many different ring tones, so many functions! I think to myself "I wonder if they feel like I do? I wonder if they have this shaming secret addiction too?"

I remember when my addiction first started taking over. I was on my way to work one day, I was even running slightly late. Half way to work I realized I had forgotten my beloved cell phone at home. I quickly took the first exit ramp nearly causing an accident making my way back home to rescue my phone. (Yes, sadly I admit, I was late to work that day.)

I feel so naked and exposed without my love, my sweet cell phone. I panic when I hear that forever frightening beep as my battery runs low. "What do I do? I must find a charger!!! SHIT, I left my charger at home!! What if I miss an important call or text message???"

People, I'm here to tell you it's an evil web of Satan and It's taking over my very soul! I thought I could stop when I wanted. But when I feel that smooth vibration against my thigh, I can't help but tingle as I know I've just received another "important" text!

Since coming to grips with this very real and very serious "sickness", I've been doing a lot of soul searching. I've developed my own 8 steps to help me cope with this "Illness"

1. I admit I have become powerless over texting and my cell phone.

2. I've Come to believe that a Power greater than myself could restore me to sanity with out constant text messages.

3. I Made a list of everyone I have hurt while using my cell, and I am willing to make amends to them all. (not via text message)

4. I can use a cell phone without falling in love with it.

5. If my basic cell phone needs are not being met, I can set it down and leave it at home.

6. I love myself more then I love my cell phone.

7. I look to my Higher Power for strength, guidance, and the willingness to overcome.

8. ...

Sorry, I just got a text, I'll have to finish this later!...

I used to be addicted to my cell phone. But when I got a PDA, my cell phone got jealous and ran off with my iPod.

Oh my god, I didn't know I had the sickness until now.

Come to think of it, I'm also addicted to MySpace.

If I get fired from my job from being on MySpace too much at work, is that really really sad or just sad?

My addictions typically center more around Laotian prostitues.
