It’s a well-known fact of the 21st century that from the moment you get up in the morning to the moment you go to bed at night, technology rules. Smartphones wake us up, we get our news from online, we check our social networks, chat on IM, watch videos on YouTube, and text on our phones. Whether we like to admit it or not, we’re addicted to our gadgets and to the Internet.

Our infographic this week comes courtesy of OnlineSchools.org, which has a rather strange looking guy who looks like he has had one too many Botox injections (his face in the “Eating Breakfast” section a case in point).

Are you this addicted to your gadgets and the Internet? Which part of the infographic do you identify the most with? Are you guilty of having an affair with your phone? Let us know in the comments. Oh and if you want a bigger version of the infographic, just click on the one below.

    I'm frankly surprised that AA hasn't developed a specialized program, much like NA or the other branches of dependency recovery groups, for the purpose of serving "tech addicts."  If it doesn't already exist, Technology Addicts Anonymous WILL be emerging imminently.  Silly as it may sound, I've seen families at odds due to excessive use of a family member's "gadget of choice!"  It seems as though this problem has begun to infiltrate my family as well- This is a subject that should be taken seriously.

      Oh I agree, this is a serious and very real affliction. There are documented cases of "internet addiction" in China and the Far East, where the child / teenager had to be physically pried apart from their computer and put into rehab because they were not eating, not sleeping and generally not taking care of themselves.

      If they were put into rehab, that would imply that they have some sort of Tech Addicts Anonymous out there. But I haven't heard of any such support groups in Europe or the US.
