Addicted!

...to cell phones? - Is your child constantly on the cell phone? In Spain, this is considered a mental illness?two teens there, ages 12 and 13, have been committed to a mental health institution for 3 months for this reason. BBC News quotes psychologist Jose Martinez-Raga, who is an expert in addictions, as warning that these cases are the "tip of the iceberg," and that cell phone addiction "could definitely be a danger in the future."

BBC quotes psychologist Maite Utges as saying, "They both showed disturbed behavior and this exhibited itself in failure at school. They both had serious difficulties leading normal lives."
