Debunking the 5 Biggest Myths about ‘Technology Addiction’

Technology has brought us a bumper pack – the good (ground-breaking innovations) and its myths (as conceived by some group of persons). Whatever the case, it’s hard to see anyone hating on technology. Nonetheless, we are kind of intrigued by the amount of mythical dust that has settled around the addiction to technology – but then; how much addicted can one get to technology? As such, we have chosen to take on 5 of the myths right about now – in this article.

MYTH #1: Excessive use of technology has the same effect on the brain as heroin, cocaine or methamphetamine

The drugs mentioned above have been reported to trigger a massive increase in the level of dopamine – this cannot be compared, in any way to the rise that could have resulted from the use of technology. Take for instance, according to studies; playing video games, only resulted in a 175% increase which cannot be equated with the 350% attainable with cocaine and 1200% for methamphetamine. And in case you’ve not seen it, there’s a cliché on the internet that ‘technology is not a drug’ – no truer words has ever been said.

MYTH #2: Technology addiction is a mental illness

Now this is gross: technology addiction has been linked –albeit fallaciously – to mental disease and the World Health Organization seems to have fallen for this by acceding to include gaming disorder in the next publication of the International Classification of Diseases. But it’s very unlikely for the use of technology to drive an individual into a state where the mental health is jeopardized. Think about it: some persons engage technological innovations to ward off depression while some just love to derive fun from using technology. How is it then that something that drives boredom away ends up sending one into mental asylum?

MYTH #3: Technology use causes teen suicide rate to rise

This statement is just what it is – a flawed argument. Suicide rate has been on the rise for the past two decades now and even before the trendiness of technological innovations. The rise in suicide rate is more connected to other (contributive) factors bordering on psychological, social and/or economic issues. Technology use cannot drive a teen suicidal.

MYTH #4: Technology addiction results from Technology

Ok, I think I get where this one is coming from, and that is that without technology, folks will be free from its addiction – the postulator of this myth could as well throw every human back to stone age. Accepting this myth would mean questioning the idea behind the use of gadgets; Likes für Instagram, Facebook and other technological inputs that are now of immeasurable benefits. Put the words – ‘technology’ and ‘addiction’ – apart and see how ‘guiltless’ technology is.

MYTH #5: Technology addiction is getting widespread

The truth is that most of the people who use technology are out to achieve an objective –maybe having pleasure; getting work done; learning something … and you name it – and is not really about any addiction. Technology addiction may however stay in the head of the mythmaker.…
