Do you sleep cradling the phone? Sneak peeks at Twitter during meetings? Shudder at going without Internet? You're not alone.
Anecdotally, our Internet use seems to have spawned real addictions. And, according to several recently released surveys, we've got it bad.
More than half of Americans would rather give up alcohol, caffeine and chocolate for a week before parting temporarily with their cellphones, according to a recent survey by technology firm TeleNav Inc.
One-third would give up sex; 22 percent would give up their toothbrushes (versus 40 percent of iPhone users, who evidently love their phone more than clean teeth); and 21 percent would rather go shoeless before separating from a mobile phone. Sixty-six percent sleep with their smartphones by their side.
