An increasing number of adults are falling victim to social media addiction. Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler, an eye surgeon who posts videos debunking viral health trends that aren’t true, says he was one of them.

“I developed over three million followers. I didn’t realize at the time it was costing me with my family. I was in complete denial,” says the author of “Influenced: The Impact of Social Media on Our Perception.”

Dr. Wachler says he experienced a dopamine rush watching his following grow, making him obsess about growing his online platform. When does he say he finally realized he had an addiction to social media?
