I'll give up money, sex ... but not the mobile
LONDON (Reuters) - Young Britons would rather give up sex than live without their mobile phones, according to a survey.
One in three people would not sacrifice their mobile phone for one million pounds or more, with women leading the way on those most likely to refuse, the survey by the Carphone Warehouse and the London School of Economics found.
Most respondents aged between 16 and 24 would rather give up alcohol, chocolate, sex, tea, or coffee than live without their mobile phone for a month.
In contrast, more than 40 percent of the those aged over 45 would give the phone simply to be able to have their favourite hot drink.
The online survey polled 1,256 adults aged between 16 and 64.
