There are few signs that proves  you are completely addicted to your phone.    


1. You have your phone in your hand 24/7

Chances are that if you are completely addicted to your phone, you will always keep your phone in your hand or somewhere close to you. People who are addicted will always, or in most of the instances, be seen with their phones, either chatting away, being on call, or using some random app or the other.

2. Not a day goes by that you are without your phone

People who are addicted to their phones will not be able to live without it even for a day. If, by mistake, they ever leave their phones at home and realize midway that they did, then they will make it a point to go back home and fetch it.These people need to have their phones with them constantly, without which they feel incomplete.


3. Your phone battery does not even last a day

You will know that you are addicted if you always find yourself charging your phone multiple times in a day.While smart phones are heavily equipped with a lot of apps and other entertainment sources, they consume a lot of battery, especially if used continuously. Data transfers used by most entertainment and social apps tend to drain the battery extremely fast.


4. When you are running out of battery, you run for your charger

Some people are so obsessed with their phones that they will use it constantly until their battery is running out and then immediately run for the charger to charge it before their phone dies on them. In some of the cases, they will sit right next to where their phone is charging so that they can use it as it charges.


5. You worry about losing your cell phone

Cell phone addicts are constantly worried about losing their phones, and they will most likely have a panic attack if they lose their phones even for as little as one second.Being constantly worried about losing your phone is certainly not a healthy behavior, and hence indicates clear signs of addiction.


6. You take your phone to the bathroom

If you are addicted to your phone, then chances are that you would take it everywhere with you, even to the bathroom. If a person starts taking his/her phone to the bathroom, then he/she will normally take longer than usual to come out, since he/she will become all too consumed with the phone inside.

7. You check your phone constantly, in most cases without any reason

8. The first thing you do after getting up in the morning, and the last thing you do before going to sleep at night, is check your phone

Keeping your phone close to or right next to you while you sleep can cause serious disruptions to your sleeping patterns.Therefore, this behavior is not healthy.


9. Even while getting ready to sleep you feel the need to check your phone

Addicted people want to check their phones all the time, even while they are preparing to go to sleep. They will then be in their beds and using their phones until they fall asleep, either going through random apps or talking to someone.


10. Vacation time is more like an extended phone time for you

Most people would spoil their whole vacation by being on their phones instead of spending quality time there and enjoying the different place that they are at.There is no point of a vacation if you remain on your phone constantly there as well.You might as well then just stay at your home and use your phone there, at least that would save you from wasting any money.

11. You carry it in your hand instead of your bag or pocket

If you are addicted to your phone, then chances are that you will be carrying it in your hand instead of your pocket or bag in most of the cases. Keeping your phone in your hand constantly can also lead to addiction, since then you have better access to it and you will be turning the screen on and off without any reason.

12. You turn to your phone whenever things get awkward

Sure, the phone can be your savior every once in a while, but if you find yourself relying on it a little too often, then you might just have a problem.

14. You’re on your phone even while watching TV or eating food

Phone addicts will most likely be on their phones while they are watching TV or eating food. This also means that they will be more focused on their phones as opposed to being focused on the aspect at hand, i.e. food or TV. For them, consuming food or watching TV is a secondary activity to using their phones.

15. You have a panic attack if you leave your phone at home

Being a phone addict means that you have to have your phone with you at all times. When addicts leave their phones at home by mistake, they might have a panic attack the moment they realize it. In most of the cases, addicts will make sure that they have their phone with them before they leave their home.
