You know what I read a story today about how someone played to escape their real life problems and troubles. I don’t know you, or your life predicaments. Only you know if your playing for enjoyment, and enhance your life, or are you playing to run away, and escape life.
There was a time in my life where I would play to escape my life. I was laid off, or I was working a piss poor job with a college education. Hell I was a bouncer with a computer science degree, I could solve for i, or kick your ass. Either one.
Addiction is a mother fucker. I myself was addicted to gambling. Like MMO’s it was a game to me, but with a different lure money. When all said and done, it cost me alot more than just money. I don’t want to see other’s go through what I did whether it be gambling, drugs, or MMOs
Do you have a problem? Do you think you have a problem?
Do you shirk your responsibilities at work, or home cause of video games?
Are you withdrawing from friends, and family because of video games?
Do you feel more alive, or happier online, and when you go offline are you depressed, angry, sad?
Problems with sleep, or have you gained alot of weight, or lost alot due to your addiction?
Do you lie about your addiction?
I myself had to ask these questions when I was addicted to gambling, and I had to take a long hard look at myself, and get some much-needed help. If you think you have a problem, you most likely do. I urge you seek some sort of professional help. If your afraid, or just want someone to listen, feel free to contact me cc0926(at)gmail(dot)com Do it anonymously, or not. I am in no ways a professional,or will I have all the solutions, but I have been around the block, and I always have an ear to listen with.
