29 Dec Social Media Withdrawal Part One
WHAT TO EXPECT. THE FIRST TWO HOURS.
At first you may notice an itchy sensation on your thumb tips. It feels like a rash, but it isn’t visible. But you will have trouble keeping your thumbs from wanting to tap something. This happens about two hours after locking your phone in the timed vault.
If you are used to using your index finger, or your nails to tap your phone, you should be okay, although there have been cases of women chewing expensive nail work to shreds during the first two social media free hours.
You also may feel tempted to resume old habits that you thought you had completely dropped. Statistics show that 99% of ex-smokers return to either e-cigs, or plain old cigarettes within one hour of not receiving a LIKE. These statistics are from the latest study of social media consumers between the ages of 5 years old and 65 years old. It was conducted by the Society Studies Center in Redhills, New Jersey.
Many Social Media abusers still work from a desktop computer. These are usually the most hardcore, i.e. hooked, SocMedAbs. They will just explode if they can’t get whatever it is off their collective chests. And when they quit cold turkey, somebody should be on call with a fast dose of LIKES and SHARES medicine.
