Addiction To Social Media (“Sucked Into The Endless Scroll”)

Feb 20, 2023

I was struck by a story I read the other day about a teen who was heavily addicted to social media, and he went on a complete, cold-turkey detox away from social media. In this episode, I talk about the following topics:

– The story of an addicted teen
– The addictive nature of social media
– What a complete detox is like and the results
