app/Models/Post.php
<?php

namespace App\Models;
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;
use Illuminate\Support\Str;

class Post extends Model
{
    use HasFactory;

    protected $fillable = [
        'title','slug'
    ];

    /**
     * Boot the model.
     */

    protected static function boot()
    {
        parent::boot();

        static::created(function ($post) {
            $post->slug = $post->createSlug($post->title);
            $post->save();
        });
    }

    /** 
     * Write code on Method
     *
     * @return response()
     */

    private function createSlug($title){
        if (static::whereSlug($slug = Str::slug($title))->exists()) {

            $max = static::whereTitle($title)->latest('id')->skip(1)->value('slug');

            if (is_numeric($max[-1])) {
                return preg_replace_callback('/(\d+)$/', function ($mathces) {
                    return $mathces[1] + 1;
                }, $max);
            }
            return "{$slug}-2";
        }
        return $slug;
    }
}
Controller Code:
<?php
  
namespace App\Http\Controllers;
  
use App\Models\Post;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
  
class PostController extends Controller
{
    /**
     * Display a listing of the resource.
     *
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
     */
    public function index()
    {
        $post = Post::create([
            "title" => "Laravel Livewire CRUD"
        ]);
        dd($post);
    }
}
