How addicted you are to Netflix

These are the first signs that you are addicted to Netflix

Attention: If you recognize yourself by the following text, you should reconsider renewing your Netflix subscription!

It's 10 p.m. on a Saturday night, you're still in your pajamas, and your dinner was a bowl of cornflakes that you ate your breakfast from. To create a balance between salty and sweet, you opened up a pack of chips. Full of crumbs and burning eyes, you reach for the greasy remote control to play the next episode. Do you recognize yourself again? The streaming service Netflix has become a large part of our lives - and in extreme cases even an addiction.

Signs of addiction

A 26-year-old Indian reportedly checked into a rehab clinic after a binge-watching session. Well, you probably (hopefully) haven't got that far yet - but you can at least check the following examples to see whether you have the characteristics of a Netflix addict.

You cancel appointments

A date has been planned for a long time, but it's the beginning of the month and the new season of your favorite show is out today. Shortly afterwards you find yourself sending away a message in which you "regret" not having time today and have to cancel the meeting while you are already lying on the bed and have almost half the season through .

alexa, make plans with all my friends that i’ll eventually cancel to stay home and watch netflix

The "Sorry" notification causes you to sweat

Like all social people, you share your password with others, but sometimes that goes very against the grain. Even if you are one of the "Netflix parasites" yourself.

Netflix: Sorry, too many people are using your account right now.

When a series comes to an end, it almost feels worse than ending it

Your heart hurts, you are struggling to sleep and you wonder how to get on with your life. No. We're not talking about being abandoned, we're talking about the feeling you get after watching the last episode of a Netflix series.
