Blackberry Addiction

Signs of addiction:

1. The addict receives 1,000 or more emails average any given day. We shall call the steady stream of email back and forth as “the flow.”

2. The addict suffers from withdrawl symptoms even if the service merely reduces the flow. A total cessation of flow causes severe physical reaction including sweating, panic and paranoia.

3. Upon immediate cessation of the flow, the addict goes into denial, frantically pounding messages on their devices, hoping to see a sign of the return of the flow.

4. The addict then lashes out at the flow provider, blaming it for their physical pain while simultaneously begging for the flow to be started again.

5. Resumption of the flow causes immediate relief, with some after effects of the physical trauma inflicted.
