Eva Gómez, director of the Hospital Día Desconecta, warns that “there are people spending between 16 and 18 hours watching their mobile phones, playing video games”.
This is the case of a young girl who was addicted to her mobile phone and gradually deteriorated her personal relationships and replaced them with her phone. She started therapy two years ago because she recognized her mobile addiction. Like her, there are thousands of young people who have easy access to new technologies from a very early age, generating a strong dependency.
Eva Gómez points out that you have to be alert when you perceive “sudden changes in mood, a lot of emotional instability, when they are isolated or do not communicate”.
