  • Yes and no. I've already spent way too much time on this website, way more than I normally would have or should have.

    I think I've already made my goals clear here. 2 TGIF cards to be redeemed and then I'm pretty much out for good, well maybe log on once per week after that.

    As for everything else, I think It varies, I don't need to always have a smartphone with me, don't need a game console with me either, and I rarely watch any movies or TV until I have time for them.

  • Yes - and no. ยจ

    I do admit, I like being online and I love the fact, that I can "isolate" myself by going online, as I have a few mental disorders, where stress and feeling overwhelmed occurs more than ten times a day.

    However, I can live without it easily. I'm not "hooked" or addicted, and most of the time I prefer not using electronic devices.

    (Please pardon the grammar mistakes - English isn't my main)

  • Yes. Definitely.

    I think I need to go live on like, a farm or something.

    Hell, even doing that probably wouldn't really get me away from technology I bet.

  • My phone is pretty much strapped to my hand , my food stays fresh because of the fridge , I have lights because of electricity , my clothes are woven in a factory and I get around town using a hunk of steel powered by dead plants and fossils.
    Let's pencil in a yes lol

  • No one can live without technology. Technology doesn't just mean electronics. Made a knife out of bone? Technology. Made a fire with the old cub-scout two sticks and a vine? Technology. Taking technology away from humans is like taking the teeth out of a coyote.

  • I went a little over a month without a phone and I was fine other than the fact that it was hard keeping in contact with friends.

  • I'm allowed to use technology for the next two days only. I'm banned from using technology because I was having too much of an impact on humanity through League of Legends.

  • I love technology but I am not addicted to it. I think it is more an issue of families growing apart. When everyone lives alone, or works different hours than their partner, it isn't like they can always play board games with each other to entertain themselves or seek out the companionship they need from other sources easily. So i think people use technology to fill that void, more than it having to do with them being addicted.

  • My career sort of requires me to, which in retrospect was an odd choice given me generally apathy towards it.

  • I will survive just fine without my phone, tablet, computer, and Internet. I will probably spend even more time reading and do a lot of cooking. Then again I live on a farm.

  • Being on electronics reduces my anxiety temporarily, so I use them a lot, but I will put it away when I need to.

  • I don't use my phone at work but I'm always on it out side of work because I run my business off my phone so I always have to be connected. Which is also a down fall of all this technology
