I am addicted to my phone all the time even in the classroom. How to get rid of this addiction?

Question:   I am a student of 12th standard. I am addicted to my phone. I do not have a phone of my own, still, I am always cringing for the same, even in the classroom. How to get rid of this addiction? Teentalker , 19-year-old

Dear Teentalker,

Thanks for reaching out and sharing your concern.

I agree that social media or browsing the internet can distract. However, exercising self-control is crucial in this matter.

You can take the help of technology. These days phones have digital well-being apps that allow you to help you curtail your internet usage, based on applications and browsers. After a certain time, the apps get locked and only unlock after a few hours. You can try such apps to limit access.

If you find this method a tad bit complicated, you can simply hand over the phone to your par.....
