Psychologists are increasingly worried by a growing smartphone addiction in the US that has seen many adults confess to sleeping with their device due to separation anxiety.
 
Two-thirds of US smartphone owners say they keep their phone next to them at night after using the devices to surf the web or check emails and other messages to help them wind down before sleeping. With smartphone penetration in the country standing at 35%, that is no small number.
 
The practice runs the risk of causing sleep deprivation and a host of other social problems, psychologists told Associated Press.
