Do you talk to Siri more than your own family?

Do you find yourself mindlessly scrolling Instagram into the wee hours of the morning?

Then you, my friend, may be in need of a digital detox.

On this Now or Never, we're nudging you to have a healthier relationship with your phone.

Meet a Calgary dad so desperate to reconnect with his 18-year-old son that he took him to one of the most remote places on earth. For a month. Without their cellphones.

And a guy who's vowed to break up with all 650 of his Facebook friends... in person.

Plus, hosts Ify and Trevor are forced to hand over their phones and go on a city-wide scavenger hunt. Can they do it without Googling?
