San Diego, CA, July 15, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- This week on "Addicted to Addicts: Survival 101" on webtalk radio, Denise Krochta, host of the show, interviews Dr. Don Grant, PHD, an expert in media and technology addiction, on the topic of smartphone addiction. In Dr. Grant's recent article "The Digital Drug" he argues that the smartphone "can be purchased over the counter and is often dealt by parents to their children. Its use has been associated with emotional and psychological trauma, untold numbers of illegal activities, and even death."
Just this past week, Tony award winner Patti Lupone snatched a cell phone from an audience member texting during her performance. Can't we do without that smartphone "fix" even for an evening of entertainment and respect for the performers?
Listen to this interview and decide for yourself. Are you addicted to your cell phone?
Denise knows the right questions to ask for the answers we all want to know. She is the mom of an addict in recovery and the author of the book "Sweat: A Practical Plan for Keeping Your Heart Intact While Loving an Addict."
