Addicted to browsing on my mobile

Every free minute I browse. Usually addf, news or some other rubbish. My biggest timewaste sink is probably the guardian's online reader forum.

I browse very little at work and I don't browse when fuzzling is with me but every other free minute I do so it's interfering with sleep, getting chores done or doing any sort of leisure activity.

I don't get much out of it. Reading the news is depressing and reading reader's forums is infuriating mostly. It's marginally interesting but only in the very short term.

The only reason why I do it I can think of is that it's easy, effortless and distracting so maybe it helps with anxiety. Except that it raises anxiety when I realise how much time I've wasted and all the things I'm missing out on.

I don't know how to stop. I don't want to give up my mobile or even mobile internet. I do want it to look up stuff once in a while but I wish I could stop wasting hours on it. Any advice?
