    Question CrackBerry
    Are You Addicted To Your BlackBerry?

    "Wilson found that a compulsion to reply to each new message led to constant changes of direction, which inevitably tired and slowed down the brain. The distractions of constant e-mails, text and phone messages are a greater threat to IQ and concentration, he says, than taking cannabis."

    I put mine down for the most* part 3 months ago. I'm a happier man.

    I recently traded in my Blackberry for a "normal" phone. I spend at least 12 hours a day in front of my computer. When I am away from my computer, I should let my brain rest from email etc.. When I am away from my computer that is my time to re-charge and clear my head.

    I'm totally addicted to my Blackberry (Pearl) ... so much so my fingers have reshaped themselves to conform to BB typing ;-)

    It's not a hip new iPhone, but I love all the things it does and how easily it slips into tight spaces.

    I'm not addicted at all - but have the need to use it quite incessantly. I can stop whenever I need to.

    I'm addicted to my Treo but if I can give it up and turn to weed, with the same results, it's worth some consideration
