B.J. Fogg is creator of the “persuasive tech lab” at stanford university. A research center that has shaped many of the minds that feed our smartphone addiction, including the founders of instagram.

First, be aware of your problem and how big or small it is. Check your usage data, most phones will alert you every week like it or not. Also take note of when you feel the need to take out your phone, what happens when you resist.
