In these days people live two different lives: a real life made of love, relationships, struggles and difficulties and another (fake) one made of followers, likes, videogames, posts and pictures.

The cellphone addicted are people who spend most of their life using social networks trying to avoid their problems and looking for relief on the internet. They suffer of sleeping problems, sometimes they are affected of terrible headaches and they don’t manage to stay away from technology.  Most of these people are affected by this problem because of difficult moments they had to run through during their life and a way to escape from all of them is actually using the Web. It makes them feel protected and extremely powerful. The problem is that whenever they finished to use their devices their life is still the same with all the issues they tried to avoid. So instead of using their time to solve them by, for example, hanging out with friends, staying with their family and doing other activities they just close their mind in another world devoid of feelings, struggles, love and happiness.
