Addicted To Games - Computer Games Addiction, Online Games Addiction, Video Game Addiction & Computer Gaming Addiction Help

Playing computer games can be fun, exciting - give us an adrenaline rush, and relaxing (especially when a brand new game comes along). Enjoying our online gaming, we can have a sense of control. Computer games can offer us an infinite imaginary world of interactive adventures, be competitive in positive ways, playing inside the rules. They can be our creative resource, creating all sorts of worlds for us to play in. Playing online we can have a sense of freedom and connection with other players, crossing borders, as if we belong, are part of a clique or a team, sharing with others (of different backgrounds, race, culture, ages, gender, sexuality, religion and include those with disabilities), and may struggle to replicate this offline. Playing computer games can be a place where we can be curious, in our own universe and a means of escape, be in a fantasy world at times. It can give us a structure. Yet our online gaming can also be a means of escaping or distracting from difficult emotions or experiences out in the real world and we may become too dependent on gaming. We may have begun to give our virtual relationships more of a priority than those in the real world. Our online gaming can bring out our competitiveness in ways we hadn't thought possible. Not only may other gamers put pressure on us to endlessly excel and achieve, but we too may do this. We may have become very competitive and perfectionist. We may be pulled in by trying to get the highest score, bring our level up, beat the game, win rewards. We can get satisfaction from our achievements online, which we struggle to do outside of our gaming world. We may have become hooked. We may kid ourself and others about the amount of time and money we spend playing online games. Things may be out of balance. Inside we may feel out of control. We may have prioritised our online gaming over and above everything else. It can be as if can't say "No" to this. We may have become very preoccupied with games and gaming (developing a computer gaming addiction, online games addiction, video games addiction, computer games addiction or PC games addiction - whatever label we give to it). Becoming so immersed in our role playing, we may be compelled to discovering more and more imaginary worlds as if we are in our own cocoon, yet we may have numbed our feelings. Fixated, we may have made our virtual world a priority, hindering our advancements and achievements in the real world, which some of us may experience as alienating. Struggling to put our devices down, we may have developed a compulsive game obsession, video game dependency, as if it takes over our life. And by now we may see ourselves as a video games addict (or online games addict, online gaming addict, computer game addict, PC games addict, internet game addict, whatever we call ourselves). Our attention span may dwindle, sleep may be deprived, and we may be seeking video game addiction help, computer gaming addiction treatment through video game addiction therapy.

Continuously playing online, excessively thinking about gaming, we may have ignored or neglected our broader life. This may also include our emotional relationship (see also Stuckness, Staleness, Neglect & Apathy In The Relationship), other basic human interactions (particular if we are in the autistic spectrum, may have Asperger's). We may have closed off, shut down inside, struggling to emotionally connect with ourself and others. We may hide what we do from others and escape from other challenges in life. We may even fail to look after not only others but ourself, our sleep, diet and even personal hygiene may take a back seat. Our concentration may diminish and our states of relating may be affected. Our mind can go blank, trance-like, tired or sometimes exhausted, we may ignore contact and attempts from others to do other things. We may have become slowly addicted to online games. We may vaguely promise to stop sometime in the future. Even when we are doing other activities, we may continuously think about our gaming, as if we can't switch off. We may have tried to stop turning to computer games, yet been unsuccessful. It can be as if we become machine-like, similar to the very games we are drawn into. In our games addiction world we may have lost our ground, forsaken our sensual world of touch, taste, smell, etc. We may have become so attached to online gaming that we now find it hard to let go. What was once our "treat", a tool to relax, may have become a tool we can't put down, as if our urge to play has to be followed. Fixated on playing, compulsive online gaming can affect our mood and we can have a tendency to "zone out". Our mind may be spiralling, thoughts overwhelming. We may turn to computer games, video games as a means to respond to our stress or anxiety. Because we have been doing it for so long, we believe there is no alternative. When not playing video games we may become irritable, angry, depressed, empty, isolated or lonely inside as our social interactions, skills, contact with nature reduce and our sedentary lifestyle dominates (see also Addictive Element To Certain Attachment Styles). We may have become forgetful, procrastinating, lost our focus or connection to what else really matters to us. Computer game addiction treatment, video game addiction treatment or game addiction therapy can be offered to those of us who believe we are now addicted to games or have a computer games addiction. We may want to free up our life, utilise our free will, tune out of gaming, tune in to our other desires or areas of life, which include looking after our body, eating, drinking, exercising, resting, sleeping and giving our eyes natural light, breaks, taking more pauses and utilising reminders to do all this.
