The bad news is: habits can never be deleted entirely. The good news is: they can be replaced. Hence, the key lies in figuring out your habit loop, isolating your reward and replacing your routine with something beneficial. Hence the best method to a good replacement is:

Practice productive leisure that is more enjoyable than your current bad habit.

I found success by using this method to quit my YouTube addiction where I was wasting 3-4 hours per day watching mindless content. I know that reading is the one activity that has given me maximum happiness throughout my life. Hence, I replaced YouTube with reading. I now carry a book around the house (instead of my phone) and even when going out, I always have a book with me!

Another reason I was addicted to social media was that I felt lonely sitting at home almost every day. I made changes to that by meeting/calling/messaging friends and family. Yay!
