Why Addiction is Killing and How it can be controlled


Sara is a writer and lives in Pakistan. Her vision is to spread optimistic thoughts, hope, cultural and heritage knowledge and motivation.


Everything seems to be very fast in this growing world.

We are self-centered people who love to live alone.

Hence, leaving behind the blood relationships.

This is general practice nowadays.

Puffed up with evil pride like the cruel king sitting on his throne.


Alarming Situation;

We are not in touch with our loved ones because we have a valid reason that we are very busy due to the shortage of time.

It’s quite a bitter reality that our close friends are mobiles, tablets, Television or any other source that connects us with the internet.

We want our generation should follow our norms.

What are we giving to our children?

We start our day by first scrolling the facebook.

We usually finished our breakfast, lunch, and dinner while reading e-mails, and commenting on Twitter, and Instagram.

We play mobile games when we get free instead of giving time to our family and totally forgot how much precious time we have wasted.

Aggression, short-tempering, anxiety, death rate while taking selfies has massively increased.

It’s quite alarming that our way of thinking has entirely changed due to social media addiction.

Unfortunately, we believe what we see without knowing the truth.

We can’t quit that addiction because we are afraid of missing anything on social networking sites.

Whenever I saw a toddler who has been given cell phones or tabs, it shatters me.

I am not against this technology but yes, I am against its harmful use.

It affects physical and mental growth as well as it ruins kid’s behavior.

If we want to get back our inner peace, we need to fix this problem.

Need a Change

We need to change ourselves.

Limit the use of mobile phones.

Switch off the internet at 10. P m and sleep early.

Keep check on internet surfing in teenage kids.

Set timings for the use of phone.

If necessary use landline.

I believe there is still a spark of hope that can bring a positive change and a bright future to this world.

Sara Shahid.

Elijah A Alexander Jr ...Many thanks for appreciating my work. I just wanted to create awareness and spread optimistic thoughts.

Elijah A Alexander Jr from Washington, DC USA on September 21, 2019:

Thank you, Sara, I'm sorry about the typos. Your testimony is doing the same as I am, it is encouragement to others who are seeking their way.

SARA (author) from Islamabad on September 19, 2019:

Linda Rogers ...I agreed...Moderation is the key.

We have to train ourselves to minimize the use of devices with internet.

Family is the first priority...I believe.

SARA (author) from Islamabad on September 19, 2019:

Elijah A Alexander Jr ....Thanks for participating...I truly admire your intentions as you are using the internet to "speak your piece"...That's great.

I wanted to create awareness regarding this growing addiction because we are neglecting our children and forgetting the harmful effects.

SARA (author) from Islamabad on September 19, 2019:

Ruby Jean Richert ...Yes, I have seen people addicted to their mobile phones etc and neglecting their families.

But doing something creative is a good thing. And you are doing a great job in this field of writing.

Linda Rogers from Minnesota on September 18, 2019:

Hi Sara, as with anything, moderation is key. The internet & technology can be useful if it's not taking away from living your life. I set time boundaries for my online activity. Thanks for starting this important conversation with your article.

Elijah A Alexander Jr from Washington DC on September 18, 2019:

Sara, as a stationary nomad, most of maytime is "alone with God" as I learned while wandering through Mexico that's what they call nomads. That was also the teachings of Jesus in so many places like what he told in John 3:8 about how to live "Born Again" is "speak your piece and go". Since I've been stationary I have been using the internet to "speak my piece" and seek others interested in what I have to say.

However, so many people have become addicted and killing their minds using internet but all things are destined by the greater and repeats itself forever. Those of us who are destined to survive the world's end are seeking others interest in understand and survive it because we know the time is very short as my interpreting hubs hubs show. We want to encourage those destined to survive it to do it. Those addicted will be so distracted that they will be discarnate before they really it is coming. It is designed to ease their pains fo the coming events.

Thanks for your sharing it, it brought the foregoing to my understanding.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on September 17, 2019:

I am guilty of spending too much time on the internet, not much on FB, but I,m definitely hooked on Hubpages. I think if we write something positive and useful is a good thing.
