The struggle is real.
If the thought of living a day without your smartphone seems unbearable, you're not crazy. You're normal.
According to a new survey, smartphones are fundamentally changing the way we live our daily lives, impacting everything from how we socialize and how we work to how we maintain our health.
In fact, 92 percent of respondents said having a smartphone has altered how they connect with friends, 58 percent said mobile devices changed how they manage their health and 49 percent say it has altered how they date, according to the survey.
And with 88 percent of respondents saying they plan to spend just as much time in front of their phone in 2015 as they did last year, and 30 percent saying they expect to use the device more, it looks like the impact smartphones have on our lives will only increase.
The growing attachment to our smartphones really stems from an attachment to apps, according to the technology research group Apigee Institute, which conducted the survey in collaboration with Stanford University's Mobile Innovation Group.
According to the survey, which questioned 1,000 people in the U.S. and the U.K., the top 25 percent of "top app users" are particularly reliant on their device, with some 55 percent saying they check at least one app every hour.
Also striking is that 1 in 5 of the top app respondents said they could not maintain a relationship with their partner without the apps on their mobile device, and 19 percent said they could not make new friends without apps and 17 percent said they couldn't do their job.
But perhaps being addicted to your phone smartphone isn't such a bad thing.

"Regardless of how much or how little people are using their smartphones, to me the bottom line is whether it is making their work, play and relationships better. While some of the usage data in our research is striking, on balance, I believe that smartphones are making lives better," said Bryan Kirschner, director of the Apigee Institute.
Kirschner said that 68 percent of respondents disagreed that mobile devices caused them to spend less time with family and 96 percent said their smartphones actually increased their ability to keep in touch with friends and family. Some 81 percent said they believe that they are actually more productive because of their devices.
While the most aggressive users skew young, it's not just a case of millennials being the only ones addicted to their devices. In fact, 1 out of 6 smartphone owners in the age range of 50-64 fall into the top app user category, Kirschner said.
