Mobile phone addicts would rather do without alcohol, chocolate and sex

Mobile phone addicts would rather do without alcohol, chocolate and sexWe're addicted to our phones. That much we know, or if we didn't before we do now thanks to that recent Ofcom survey.

But just how much do we love our little pocketable friends? So much so that a large percentage of us would rather go without caffeine, chocolate, alcohol and even sex than have to give up our mobile fix.

The stats come to us via TeleNav, and are delivered via another of those nifty infographic thingies that everyone (including us) loves so much.

And it's as interesting to read as it is to look at. When faced with the prospect of living without their phones for a week, a full 70% of those asked said they would rather do without alcohol, 63% were willing to give up chocolate, 55% caffeine and yes, 33% said sex – perhaps they weren't getting any anyway.

More worrying to us is that 22% would happily not brush their teeth for a week if it meant not giving up their blower.

There are loads of other goodies in the survey too – click on the graphic to the left to view it full-size.
