You feel anxious when you are not online:
The world is not going to end if you miss one tweet or don’t post a picture of your lunch. You should be able to spend a decent amount of time living your life sans the Internet. If you can’t, then you are probably near that thin line of technology addiction. Try out a few days where you leave your phone at home (I know, the horror!) or at least keep it in your bag while at work. Do this until you feel OK not being plugged in every second of your day.
You can not keep away your phone while with friends:

Your friend is also telling you to keep the phone away but you are too much addicted that you can not resist staying without your phone. You are losing those fun which you used to get during your school days. You will gradually start feeling alone. (Also read: What Are The Negative Thoughts We All Should Remove Right Now)
