    I'm 24 now, and I didn't have a phone until I was 16 and a smartphone until I was 17. I really wanted one before then, but my Mom wisely held her ground. I remember life before kids had cell phones, much less smartphones. I witnessed my peers turn into dopamine zombies. Last year, I was in the dentist's office, and 3 middle-aged women were on their phones, but I was not. I remember receiving a compliment from my roommate's mom for not being on my phone. My advice: turn off notifications for social media and email, no games (or very limited), and don't pay for data. Sacrilegious, I know, but it has really worked out. Axis came to my school for 2 years, I think I still have the workbooks.
