Electronics addiction?

There is anecdotal evidence that people (like the amish) who make do without electronics are happier.

I’m extremely attracted to gadgets, and I can’t imagine giving them up. But I can also see that gadgets, not the least those with screens, are *extremely stimulating*, and that is clearly the reason they are so addictive. And pretty much it is guaranteed that anything addictive does not do you any favors in the long run.
So I’m conflicted.
