5 Steps to Help Overcome Video Game Addiction

I was as bad as they come, neglecting schoolwork, my social life, personal hygiene, and pretty much every other obligation imaginable. For me, the game was World of Warcraft and I knew I had a problem, but I was just too dependent on it. Here are the steps I took four years ago to become a different, less obsessed gamer. (Culture, Industry, PC)

Get a girlfriend...or a boyfriend if you prefer that.

Didn't work (boobs, booze didn't either)...
Work and Study do work though, but not fully.
It may have something to do with me NOT wanting to stop playing games.

PD: Now my GF is getting into gaming :P

The first step is to overcome your breathing addiction.

Maybe the article misspelled "hobby" as "addiction".

Get a job
Have bills
have a wife/gf
Have a kid

All the above are guaranteed ways to slow down game time.

I'm pretty addicted to video games but I just see it as a Hobby!

I play games at work, I play games when I get home, I'm playing Planetside 2 right now and just browsing the net in between spawns, and my social life revolves around games as I usually only go out to Lan parties.

Gaming addiction is Good.
