    Basically for the past year I have been slacking because I'm constantly on the internet watching youtube etc. My grades have suffered very badly. I've gone from getting As and Bs to Es and Cs at A level. My mocks are in 2 days. I know I am going to fail so there is nothing I can do about it but try to cram. How can I stop this addiction?

    Trust me, I'm the exact same. This is going to sound silly, but switch off your devices and disconnect yourself off the internet more frequently.

    You need to set yourself a to do list everyday and only use the internet / devices once everything on the list is done, eg finishing off homework/revising etc.

    I think the key is not to completely stop yourself from using the internet, as this wouldn't work. I recommend trying to plan your day every day, and set aside some time for revising certain subjects, youtube etc. There is an app called Forest which can stop you using your phone when revising. There are also apps on google chrome that can block websites for you on your laptop/computer which i would highly recommend. You could start with setting a goal to study for an hour and then watch one youtube video, and keep doing this over and over. Don't be too hard on yourself, but set yourself manageable goals with regard to studying.
