How to Break Video Game Addictions
Really useful and effective ways to break video game addictions.
Everyone has been addicted to something before, whether it be drugs, smokes, alcohol, video games, TV shows and even food. Being addicted to video games is definitely better than drugs and alcohol, however, it is still a bad thing and it can have a big impact on your education, job, work and life. It can be hard to break addictions, but they can still be done.
The first step to breaking your addiction is to find out what is it that’s keeping you addicted. It could be that you’re trying to make a video and you need good clips. You may be trying to reach a certain level or rank or a certain unlockable. The game can just be really fun and you want to keep playing it. Peer pressure can also be the cause, as sometimes you might see your friends playing the game and you want to join them. All of these causes have different ways of breaking the addiction, and there are also some general tips.
If you are addicted because you’re aiming to reach a certain rank, level or unlockable, just tell yourself that they’re only part of a game and they take you nowhere in life. Every time you want to play the game, think about that. Also think about what you can do if you don’t play games – you can finish off some homework, do some work around the house or garden, find a job or make some money. To make things easier, you can just ruin the gaming experience for yourself by using cheats, trainers and hacks. Even if it is a multiplayer game, just keep hacking until you get bored of the game. It doesn’t take long to get bored of games by hacking. Don’t worry about what others will say if you hack in public, it’s just a game and they’re strangers you don’t even know. If you can get banned, then that’s even better. If you do get banned, its more likely you’ll stop.
