Ah, FOMO ;-) Yes, it can be addicting, but you know that social media goes on forever and there's no end to the scroll. Get a little elevation and dispassionately observe why and how you use social media. Look at where the stickiness is, where the attachment lies. What are you getting out of it? You say no benefit, but there is something there or you wouldn't do it.

Turn fb/twitter/insta notifications off so your phone doesn't grab your attention all the time. Choose a couple of times a day to look at your feeds, BUT SET A TIME LIMIT for yourself. A gradual weaning works better than "cold turkey" but it takes self-discipline. I know you have that.
