Steps in Killing the Video Game Addiction That Some Find Extreme

If you’re having troubles in stopping video games, but want to, you might just be a step closer to that thought compared to what you know.

How do you stop the addiction?

First of all, you need to accept that you are really into playing video games. This is the first thing you need to do and probably is the hardest. You need to see that you’re spending way more time in the world of video games rather than in real life.

If you’re spending way too much time with playing, you can at trim down your game time by an hour a week so it would be easier on you and your cravings for playing. An hour less of gaming is a big difference and is a big step because you are now inching your way out of playing. You can do a lot of things in one hour already rather than spending time in the gaming world.

If you’re still having a hard time stopping yourself from playing, an instant help would be selling your online character. Yes this is pretty morbid for some players out there, but this will surely help you in stopping and doing something else in real life. Now, you have nothing to come back to. If you’re going to come back and play, you’re going to need to spend a lot of time in chasing your achievements again. Not only will you be able to stop, but you’re going to make some money out of your character as well.

Yes it’s still hard to stop yourself from stepping back into the 3D world. How do you deal with it? Spend time with your family and friends. They are great in supporting you in your exit to the world of video games because they are just that fun to be with. Go out of town with them, go to the mall or even go out of country if you can. Building relationships is healthy for the heart and is also a good training in your social skills.

Treat your life like a big video game. Treat these as levels or skills in a video game: studying, graduating, finding a job and retaining a job. These are the challenges of your everyday life that you may be missing out. You may not notice it but life is a big video game. The difference is you don’t have any re-spawn or restart modes…
