The study says that excessive usage of smart phones is like drug abuse, and has its same effects as well.
The study was conducted on 135 participants from the United States. According to researchers, loneliness happens because the person does not have a face-to-face interaction with others. There is no form of communication where the body language is involved. Signals cannot be interpreted as well.

This does not provide any relief or relaxation to the body of the smart phone user. This in turn, will have a deep impact on the person.
