Nomofobia – My Spanish Word Of The Day 10/29/2015

Nomofobia es la adicción al teléfono móvil.

Nomofobia (nomophobia) is the fear or anxiety of being without your cell phone.  According to E. Villar at LA RAZÓ, nomofobia is: “el miedo a estar Sin teléfono” and “es para muchos, la enfermedad del siglo XXI”.  It is an irrational fear of  not having your cell phone with you wherever you go.  It is interesting to note that people who are addicted to their cell phones can be completely unaware of their dependency.
