Or, better yet, this is only way to truly get rid of your computer

Every audience member watching on Netflix:
Realizing just how accurate The Social Dilemma really is about all of our addictions to our phones & social media might be the creepiest thing about the documentary.
Me fighting the urge to check notifications on my phone while watching the documentary from TheSocialDilemma
Must. Not. Look. At. My. Phone.
Those notifications are so tempting, but that’s the point isn’t it?
