8 Signs You’re Officially Addicted To Snapchat

Because the first step is admitting you have a problem, right? Right.


There’s a fine line between a hobby and an addiction and unfortunately some of us are falling towards the addiction end of the spectrum when it comes to Snapchat these days. Reckon you’re verging on obsession territory? Here are eight signs you may need to take a break from your fave-o app.

1. You snap every single meal

Breakfast? Lunch? Dinner? Every meal must be shared and you’re pretty sure that given the frequency of your food snaps your entire friends list could easily work out your daily calorie count.

2. It’s the first thing you check when you wake up

Forget about the lovey dovey good night texts from your SO that are still waiting to be read, Snapchat is your number one port of call in the AM. In fact, you’ve usually snapped a selfie and added it to your story before you’ve even gotten out of bed.

3. You never have any news to share

When you meet up with the gals once a week you find every time you try to tell a story you are met with the response “Oh yeah I remember seeing that on Snapchat…” Er, maybe keep your big news for IRL, yeah?

4. If you didn’t add it to your story, it didn’t happen

Because every single minute detail or your life needs to be documented in Snap form, right? Absolutely.

5. You literally lose hours looking at other people’s Snapchats

In fact, you spend so long binging on everyone’s snaps that by the end of the day you’re convinced you’ve been out and about when you haven’t even left your bed. Oops!

6. No one ever replies

‘Nuff said.

7.You feel like you know the celebs you follow

Feel like if you saw Kylie Jenner walking down the street she’d totally stop and have a good chin wag with you over her boy and lipstick troubles? Yep, you and her 30 million other followers, ladyriend.

8. You have no battery ever

All that snapping takes its toll on your battery life meaning your phone is either constantly on 10% battery or permanently plugged into the wall. The addiction has reached dangerous levels, friend. Step away now.
