Adopt an "N2K" policy on text messages-- that is, "need to know" texting only! (e.g. I'm going to be late, In class etc.) Senseless texting ("what are you up to?", "we're going to rage tonight!", "I hate my life" etc.) only works with close friends, family and those with whom you are intimate. Everything else can probably be handled more efficiently with a phone call. I've been doing it for the past few weeks and it has proven not only to be a hit, but also contagious. Try it.
