Good that you recognize your own personal failings and that you cannot handle the app and use it like most people do and that you need to take a step back. According to everyone else with personal issues manifesting as "Strava" problems you will now be able to enjoy your rides way more than people that do use Strava. So you have that going for you.

Good luck!
I hear there is a Strava 12-step program ... the best riders can finish it in 9 or 10, the KOM is eight.
