I probably put too much of my life on my phone
« on: January 14, 2017, 12:55:51 AM »
My cellphone is basically my life. I'm always on it. I have my kindle and google books there, I talk to my friends regularly on it, I work on my blog on it, answer my work emails, etc. It is a beautiful tool that has helped me keep organized, social, and gives me a bit of privacy in a time in my life where I'm getting busier and busier.

Just an hour ago, my cat knocked over my phone and now the touch screen no longer works. I'll have to either replace my phone or order a repair kit. Either way, I won't have a phone handy for a while and the idea of that is driving me goddamn crazy. I realize this is very Undude of me, to place so much on my life on a piece of technology, but there it is. Not only that, I snapped for a moment and almost lashed out at my cat.

I guess for a little while I'll have to pretend it's still 1997 and cellphones haven't been available for regular schmucks like me. Still unsure what to do with all of this pent up aggression though.

Sucks about the expense but dude it's cool that you're able to use this as an opportunity to notice where it's turned into a need to "feed the monkey" instead of being a useful tool.  I myself have had a similar purge by deleting the apps I find myself using the most that do not bring me any joy but rather numb me and/or take me out of the moment.

It's cool to surf the wave of the future but yeah... we all should still live manually I suppose and turns out that usually feels better after a little while.

I used to enjoy going to the mountains for a while.
Doing the wild thing.
Just me and the universe.
The ultimate disconnect.
Not really sure why it's so effective at shedding stress but it is.
It really formats the hard drive.

If there is one downside to not having a phone is that I have nothing to listen to on my commute. I haven't the slightest idea where my MP3 player is so I'm stuck having to listen to the noises of the city during rush hour. Still though, this also means I don't have to engage with telemarketers for a while so that's cool  8)

For a couple of years now I've been using a basic phone. All it does is calls and texts. The only "extras" it has are an FM radio (which will be obsolete before too long, unfortunately) and a couple of very basic games (sudoku and snakes). Love it!

At around the same time I removed myself from Twitter and G+ (G+ was a bit of a wrench as I had some great debates/conversations on there and it was awesome for science information). I stopped using failbook years before that as it was, basically, an online, continuous, Jerry Springer episode (I describe it as an online, continuous, Jeremy Kyle episode with my fellow UK friends as that man's show is like the very worst Jerry Springer shows but all. The. Time! Ugh.).

I haven't become a total technophobe. I still visit websites, still have my Playstation, still want a 4k tv (when there's more 4k content to watch), still 'ooh' and 'ahh' at the latest tech-devs. I've just removed myself from the more toxic elements.

All the whiz-bang phones do is make you *rely* on something, rather than *using* something. They should be *something* to help you in life, not the *only* thing. At least, that's how I feel about it.
If at first you don't succeed ... Um ... Yeah. Whatever and stuff.

This hits home. I'm going to use it as an intervention. Didn't realize how many damn apps/games/shit I've mindlessly thrown on my cellphone. Just let them accumulate and, pretty soon, I'm clicking on Clash of Clans, opening a document, googling the name of Buddy from Charles in Charge (Willie Aames, btw), playing Star Wars...it's a time-sink.

No more. I'm taking back my conscious life and immersing myself in my surroundings instead of an artificial reality of my own assemblage.

Thanks, dude.

CONFESSIONS OF A PHONE ADDICTED DUDE
    Hi everyone, my name is RevDaveMan and I am a phone addict.  It has been 2.1 seconds since I last checked my phone.  I didn't realize I had a problem until reading this thread. Perhaps I can start slowly by deleting some apps...but making the jump off of facebook will be the real feat. I can only hope that somehow I can draw upon the inner strength of the universe to unplug and become the dude i aspire to be. 
I'm calmer than you are

Yea-ah, that's trivial this days. People have everything on there phones, so there phones almost become there life. I don't have that problem, I use an old cellular phone, without camera, only have Sudoku which I don't know how to play or I'm too fucking lazy to finish it. Some people use excuses to be logged 24/7: "I need it for work man!", but dude, I'm constantly receiving phone calls all related to my work, some/most I don't answer because I'm jerking off manually or I don't fell like answering it.

Right now I'm on vacation, I know I should have my phone turned on, because there are probably ten individuals after me trying to tell me what mistakes I made in the two weeks they were on vacations while I was working, but guess what: I don't give a fuck, they better clean that shit while I'm drinking lemonade under my banana tree in my super comfortable couch.

Anyway, my advice is: do what celebrity stars do, turn the fucking phone off, tell your friends to speak after the beep and you check the voicemail in the end of the day and if you think it's important you call them back. About the work e-mail, check every one/two hours and answer those who should be answer ASAP, the other's fuck them. Oh, delete your fucking facebook page.

Yeah, I know you will not do a fucking thing I told you, no one said was going to be easy.
