Instagram is the first thing I check in the morning. Yeah, the first.
I might still be partly dreaming but I wanna know where my school friend, who I totally don’t care about, was partying last night (and with whom because, obviously!).
This is routine for most people around the world with access to technology.
Social media has become an important part of our lives.
The high from that one ‘heart reaction’ on a picture of you and your boyfriend makes the relationship worth the effort.
Coffee tastes better after 15 people double tap on its picture on Instagram.
Work seems bearable after someone retweets your ‘life is tough but I am tougher’ quote.
But we do not realise when we cross that thin line and get sucked into our digital lives.
Now, addictions are serious and they need to be treated.
To help people with this, a rehab center was opened in Bengaluru in 2014, and it’s not surprising that it’s doing a decent business.
Run by Dr. Manoj Kumar Sharma, this centre in Nimhans psychiatric hospital gets around 4-5 patients every day.
Some patients are in such a bad condition, they have to be admitted to the hospital.
In an interview given to Gadgets Now, Dr. Sharma talked about one such case and said that he handled a patient who would take more than 500 selfies a day.
This is scary.
