Most of us are attached at the ear (or thumb)to our phones, computers & tablets. Save your sex life!
It’s almost impossible to live in this modern metropolitan world without some form of online attachment and it can really get in the way of our romantic relationships if we don’t watch out. I was rather late to the internet-party but now I’d say I’m certifiably addicted. Leave the smart phone home for the afternoon…? Not a chance! I’d hate to be ‘out of touch’.

There are different types of addictions, some more serious than others. Hard core addictions to things like drugs and alcohol are clearly the most severe and warrant cause for concern.
