Support spaces for people who struggle with binge watching and social media?

I am really afraid of my inability to control my binge watching and social media consumption.

Yeah - I know it sounds dumb. I have a job I love, hobbies I care about, relationships that fill me up, AND I struggle with compulsive online streaming, youtubing, and social media use. For me, unlike for some other people, these are all numbing behaviors - escapism and easy serotonin hits - that are so much more immediately enticing than the things I care about and love.

I don't feel in control, and I feel ashamed. I can't be the only one with this problem, but where can I go for help?
