I have a habit that every night, when I go to bed and before ready to sleep, I will play with the cell phone for ten or fifteen minutes, then I will sleep. I will chat with friends, play a little bit games, or just search the internet. I don't know it is a good habott or not. what about you, do you have this kind of habit?

I do have this habit, as well. It is no different for me reading from my cell phone as it is reading from my Kindle. It is just easier. Before these devices, one had to have the lamp on in order to see to read. Since these devices have been developed, there is no need for a lamp that has to be turned off. That means I can fall asleep reading the device and the light on the device will go off by itself!!

I don't really do much with my cell phone... I don't play games on it or listen to music on it or watch movies on it like some people do... I mainly use it for voice calls & text messages... I don't use my cell phone unless I absolutely have to...

It's not really a restraint issue... I like using my phone for what it is, a phone... Not for an entertainment purpose...

Hi,sk66rc, you showed a great restraint in not playing cell phone on bed. i want to change this habit too, but i still do the same thing in the night like wathing TV. i find it difficult to stop it so that it had some bad effect on my sleep.

No, I don't. But I know someone who does that in the house. I think it is not good for your eyes.

I also have the same habit.I find it necessary playing cell phone before I fall asleep.Even though most of people said it is really harmful to our eyes,I can't help doing it.I usually watch some news and search the web pages,and I sometimes forget the time.I really want to get rid of this bad habit,do you have any suggestions?

I want to get rid of this too, maybe we can try to turn off the cell phone before go to the bed.

I probably like to chill in bed and surf the internet by my smartphone for a while before falling asleep.But before I read a survey which says that if we want to sleep well,put away the phone,turn off the TV and shut down the laptop.They would all lead to a poor night's sleep.And meanwhile,the radiation from phone would cause headache easily as well as cutting the time spent in deep sleep.Or when we use it,it is better for us to change as night displays.

For me, especially in winter, i will be in bed and play with the cell phone,because outside is so cold.

I sometimes play games in the phone when i am at bed, especially when i just want to be able to doze off to sleep.. but recently i am just reading an ebook with my phone and not playing games anymore. haha i think or felt i had better use my phone and time wisely and just read some good books instead of playing games.

i wouldnt be able to say if it's a good habit or not because I do the same thing. It takes a few minutes after going to bed before I get actual sleep and playing on my cellphone helps.

My husband has a new phone - an Android one. He downloaded games and now, he is beside me in bed playing a game. I have to tell him to shut the sounds because i am also doing Mylot!

I don't play my mobile before sleeping. I used to read one chapter of novel. If I have the time, I just watched movie and turn it off if I am ready to sleep.

Hello Shavkat, if you do not use your cellphone at night before sleep than it is very good. But i do not switch off mobile at night. But any ways good luck and happy new year.

Well i am with cell phone nd internet half of the day. Well my habit is more of an addiction. I am in trouble with that addiction but if you spend with 15 minutes that is not a big deal i guess. I started with such a habit but you don't end up with addiction like me.

I don't play in the cell phone in the bed. Because I used to read books in the bed. That is the only thing I do in the bed. And also I playing phone games is a useless thing to do. Therefore I request you do do a useful thing even when your are in the bed.

I believe most people have this habit. It is replacing booking reading before bed. I can't really blame people for it. A smartphone is so much more entertaining. So much more to do and, get into. Most of us have become addicted to our phone. It's not hard to see why.

I do that sometimes, but not often. I know that it isn't good to use electronics before going to bed.

Hi friend, my wife is also having this kind of habit. I don't think it is a bad habit, as you are doing it in your bad time after finishing all your work. Some persons will get sleep only after accessing cell phones, i think you are in this sort. Always i hear my favorite song using the cell phone before going to sleep.

No,i don't play games in my cell phone neither in bed nor any time.I use it only for talking and listening to music.And a friend of mine,which is a doctor,once told me to avoid keeping cell phone at bed,because it causes heart problems.So i use my cell phone when i have to talk to someone.And i listen song once in a week.

So did I.I would feel uncomfortable if I didn't played my smartphone before I go to sleep.I love the cartoon One piece very much,so I would watched a few sets of it on my cellphone.Since I exhausted myself in the day,I would feel really happy when I was watching the One piece laying in my bed.If not,I will fail to fall asleep.haha~
