It damages our profession image. Another disadvantage is getting distractions. While taking care of the patients, we need to make sure we give our complete attention to the patients.

Solutions that could be used to solve this problem are certain restrictions that disable the phone after certain times. These restrictions could extend to certain times during the day where people are unable to use their cell phones or certain places that automatically shut down the devices. Those who agree with cell phone addiction being a problem stand by the idea of restricting access to mobile devices, seeing as this may also aid in the withdrawal from the devices. This debate should be a worldwide matter and should be taken to the government because it affects a whole nation. The government is more able to enable restrictions and laws that aid in the solution to cell phone addiction.
In recent discussions of smartphones, a controversial issue has been how the excessive use of smartphones are affecting the adolescents of this generation. Jean M. Twenge argues in her article, “Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation?” that the redundant use of these gadgets along with social media use is in fact detrimental to the current and upcoming generations.

I agree with the main arguments in Twenge’s article
