My Online Game Addiction
My struggle with online game addictions.
I'm struggling to create a comprehensive resource for people seeking help to stop being abusive because it has taken on a life of its own and has overwhelmed me.
Car repairs, Facebook and the economy are on my mind at the moment.
I haven't been able to get into the latest online game I have been playing so I'm suffering computer game addiction withdrawal. It's a state I might be stuck with, however, to keep myself safe from identity theft.
There have been a lot of articles lately about an increase in the number of people suffering from sex and pornography addictions. I have never really thought of these from an addiction perspective before but now I am.
In the dictionary, under the term "addictive personality", there really should be a photo of me! This entry is an update on how things are going with my food, gambling and computer game addictions.
The slot machine owners have begun an advertising campaign using the slogan "Just for fun". I have been watching more television lately and I can't help wondering if the recent increase in my problem gambling behaviour is connected to their campaign.
I'm feeling empty and discontent and it isn't just because I can't eat much. Eating does, however, seem to have been the antidote to these feelings until now.
Just another day without him but, today, it hurt more than usual.
Most of the new players who come into Syrnia, the online game I am playing, come from another game called Runescape. They come in all hyper and looking for trouble and wind up watching a timer count down and, maybe, doing a spot of homework while they wait.
At fifty years old I am in what some would describe as the winter of my life. Today I got a glimpse of spring.
