I have the exact same problem! I’ve actually had to use an app called app blocker and building times when I allow myself downtime. So I have limits on Facebook and games and websites and other apps set for mornings when I’m supposed to be getting up and getting my son out to school, even work time, and I just recently added and 11 bedtime for myself. I somehow seem to work around that, but what I can do is still pretty limited. I have also use the same app to block things on my son’s phone and it has a stricter mode where you can put parental controls on. Sometimes it’s a point of contention between us but he also sees me using it to help myself. I still have issues with time management and phone addiction. Can’t say this is mastered at all.
