  • Of course. Texting, internet addiction, gambling, sex....are all what's known as "process addictions" . There are rehabs for these types of addictions.

  • A true addiction? No. But can you come to rely and depend on it? of course!

  • as twinkletoes said..

    ive seen a story about text addiction. its the basics of any other addiction. its a lil' "fire" that goes off in the brain any time u get txted. its a very small "hit of crack"... Yay someone is txting me, someone cares, someone thought of me.. and its a small high because u dont know who the txt is from when it rings or what it will be about. so its a very small skydive to the unknown.. lol..
    txting is also prefered because u can think about your response, to make urself cooler, funnier, et. al...

  • Yes and I think you can tell by people's facebook pages when they are constantly updating their status from their phone. I can only imagine how many texts they send out in between.........My sister does this A LOT
