Long before iPhones, the cigarette was the companion of choice for fidgety hands. And, long before Facebook, it was tobacco that promised to enhance your social life. Now, quitting smartphones has become the new quitting smoking.

Of course, technology does not yellow your teeth, cause emphysema or lead to cancer. But some individuals are so concerned that device addiction is damaging their mental health that they have spent January trying to reduce their dependence. Cal Newport, author of Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World, ran a digital declutter experiment with thousands of followers of his blog, while in the UK, Time To Log Off has run a 30-day digital detox campaign.

Even in Silicon Valley, people are turning off the notifications that constantly buzz for their attention, banning smartphones from the bedroom and, curiously, changing the colours on their screens to a less seductive scale of grey. Phone Smartphone 2018 Alexa Amazon “iPhone X” iPhone Android Life Vacation happy happiness “iphone app” “phone app” lifestyle life “family time” quit 5G 4G talk telephone “telephone call” tech technology people future “new tech” “new technology” “next gen” “next generation” deal contract “phone contract” The big tech companies will have to work out how to respond to this new generation of quitters. Facebook is the first to go public with its attempt, hoping its recent move to slash memes, brands and news from its newsfeed will make the social network feel more homely — filled with friends and family who encourage us to stay.

Last year the tech industry received a label — Big Tech — with unfortunate echoes of other industries that have faced fierce opposition, including Big Tobacco. Like them, the tech industry has to quell concern from a new generation of activist shareholders that are questioning its role in the world. Jana Partners and the California teacher pension fund have urged Apple to consider developing software that would allow parents more options to limit children’s phone use. Arjuna Capital and the New York State Common Retirement Fund have submitted proposals to Facebook and Twitter, calling for them to stop sexual harassment on their platforms. Trillium Asset Management has submitted a proposal to Facebook, arguing it needs a risk committee to consider research linking the site to depression What’s the first thing you do when you wake up? Read the news? Check your emails? Scroll through social media? Now, imagine your phone’s not in the room. If that makes you feel aimless or uncomfortable, it may be time for a digital detox.

This doesn’t have to be about giving up the digital world altogether, says Tanya Goodin, founder of digital detox specialists Time To Log Off and author of Off. “It’s about becoming aware of your own personal challenges around screens, gaining an understanding of what will help you overcome them, and learning to live with technology in a way that’s healthy. People are always amazed by how different they feel after not being on their phones and that motivates them to want to keep going.”

Goodin has devised a seven-day detox, to fit in with a typical week of work while still enabling improved sleep, productivity and mood. She recommends downloading a tracking app such as Moment (free on the Apple store) which measures how much time you spend looking at your screen and how many times a day you pick up your phone.

“Some of the challenges make use of the functionality of the device itself, others are about physically removing yourself from it. They build up over the week from those that involve still keeping your phone on you, to those that involve separating yourself from it. Going cold turkey is daunting, so the week eases you in gently – from cutting down on particular aspects of your phone use to getting used to leaving it behind from time to time.”

    I love my smart phone. I'm a heavy diesel truck mechanic and I have nearly every manual (for everything I work on) stored on the phone, instantly available. They're word searchable as well so while other mechanics are still flipping pages I'm already at work. I keep part numbers, torque specs and job notes all on google calendar and they're all searchable as well. And when it's time to mount up and go rescue a truck that's broke down, google maps is hugely handy to find the location and navigate there. That phone is one of my most valuable tools in my career.
    I'm also into Bitcoins and I have several bitcoin wallets including the new Eclair Lightning wallet. The lightning network is an amazing thing. It will allow the bitcoin network to scale and become very useful for 3rd word people who live in countries where the government prints their currency into oblivion. The price swings in bitcoin are nothing compared to the hyper inflation in venezuela and when people discover they can get out of their horrible currency situation and protect their wealth from inflation, it's going to help a lot of people.
