I know most people say you are addicted when you can't do without it, but I can do without it. I just play video games whenever I can, from early in the morning till I have to go to school and then when I return from school till late in the evening, and when I'm not playing I don't know what to do with my life most of the time.

I don't think your addicted at all i your just without reason. I'm 14 and I love playing video games. I believe that once one has a low self esteem or lack of reason in life they are sometimes confused by real or virtual accomplishment. So no I don't think you are addicted I just think you are without a reason essentially which is fine at the moment but as you will get older you may find it a problem

Get out of the house and find something else you enjoy doing. You'll be much happier that way in the long run. It seems as if you're using video games as a crutch. Well... Maybe stow it away somewhere for a while... See how long you can go without playing. You might not miss it as much as you think you do.

I do play badminton as well like twice a week, but when I'm playing badminton I constantly think about video games, or I sometimes skip it so I can play more.

Best Answer

Yeah. Sounds like you need to get out of the house more. Are you interested in anything outdoorsy?

Best Answer

Not really I think :(

Best Answer

Hmm. Well there's lots to do... Photography, walking, hiking, biking, swimming, etc...

Best Answer

Well, at the place I live at you can't really go hiking or walking and I already have to bike to school and back for a total of 2 hours so dont really wanna do that. Maybe I could try find something though

I used to play all day every day when I was trying to not think about my life. I lost interest in gaming when I started to have more things to do, more friends and purpose.

seriously though... I feel like I have wasted a lot of time when I was gaming. Go for a walk, read a book... You will feel better mentally.

I never played that. I used to play world of warcraft. Now I play minecraft with my 12 year old brother sometimes and that's it. You can stop if you really want to. It will be hard at the beginning but it's worth it. Everything in moderation is the key.
