I’ve read no fewer than a dozen articles in the past two months ([example](https://medium.com/personal-growth/smartphones-harm-your-productivity-more-than-you-think-62e105655992), [another](https://apple.news/A4U-BJJSFTgm_kmPR5KUF3w), [another](https://apple.news/AGKmUWwpxP4OUP4__RHH1og), [another](http://www.lifehack.org/656665/external-content-6), [yep](http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2016/11/the-binge-breaker/501122/), [another](https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2018/jan/01/antisocial-media-why-decided-cut-back-facebook-instagram), and [another](https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/17/technology/apple-addiction-iphone.html)), all on a very similar topic: smartphones are addicting, they are the new smoking, and this is a serious health problem which needs to be addressed. It’s very hard to decouple a few items which I keep seeing, and keep in mind that I know next to nothing about the science and psychology of all of this — but it doesn’t seem the other writers do either, so yeah.
