Must… Tweet. Can’t… Resist.

Tweeting or checking emails may be harder to resist than cigarettes and alcohol, according to researchers who tried to measure how well people could resist their desires.

They even claim that while sleep and sex may be stronger urges, people are more likely to give in to longings or cravings to use social and other media.

“Mmm, a cocktail, some sex, then a cigarette (of course), followed by sleep would be awesome right now, but I haven’t left my cave in ages. Maybe someday there will be a way out of this lonely, lonely prison of my own making, if only an escape into an imaginary world full of friends, and friends of friends, and friends of friends of friends who are into having sex IRL.”
