KUSA - Ever feel addicted to your cellphone?

College students who are constantly on their cell phones are more anxious, according to new study completed by researchers at Kent State University.

The research found students spend an average of five hours on their phones each day and send an average of 77 text messages.

As cellphone use increased, so did student's anxiety levels.

Researchers suspect those who spend more time on their phones feel a need to constantly be in touch with their friends.
