Vitaminwater is offering $100,000 if you can stay off smartphones for a year.

Could you actually ditch your smartphone for a year? Vitaminwater wants to find out, and it's willing to part with $100,000 if someone can rise to the challenge.

It would be hard for some that's for sure.
I rarely use mine to get on line, I mainly use a desktop.
I could probably get by with an old flip phone if I had too.

Easy. I hate the *** things. I use a tablet to visit forums like this. No social media! I got rid of my phone 2 years ago and felt...free. Took up magic at the same time and reminded myself how life pleasurable idle tome in life can be. Yes I got very into the phone at first, for about 2 years, but then I'm sick a lot of the time and so I felt it was my only solace. In fact it caused me more stress than anything. You won't find much compassion online.
Besides that though, Im sick of seeing the whole street looking down and rarely speaking to each other. I went on a train for the first time in many years recently and omg the carriage was like a tomb. Hardly a voice and all eyes looking at screens. I could've danced around them naked and no one would've noticed. Or if they'd have noticed they quickly would've looked down again.
I don't recognise this world!
Society is ruined. And all for instant gratification and addiction. We are a strange species indeed.

I lived without one for years. I've only just recently gotten one (2016?), relative to their rise in popularity. I could surely do it again. I do need a phone, though.
