Technology can be addicting
Re: Street smarts (March 7-13, 2013)
Technology once affected my stress level, as I was spending way too much time on the computer at my home, as well as the computers at the public library and Camosun. I had to hit a rock-bottom before I could get the help that I needed. After losing my home Internet and losing my Internet privileges at the public library and Camosun, I admitted that I was powerless over technology, that my life had become unmanageable. I came to believe that a power greater than myself could restore me to sanity. That was almost two years ago. To this day I have no home computer, no laptop, no iPod, no iPad and no cell phone. I still have a landline in case of emergencies; I still have an alarm clock with an AM/FM radio to wake me up in the morning; I still watch TV from time to time. But when I leave my apartment, I know that I am free from my technology addiction. I beat my technology addiction, and so can you.
