More money being wasted on crap that doesn't need to be spent on. Good job i'm not paying towards this, oh wait ... I am!

So lets open a practice for those who would rather stay out of trouble than go and live like sheep in society? I had an issue when I played Final Fantasy 11; and on my own I broke out of the cycle and haven't looked back.

Simple communication, balance, and actually caring are what helps break addictions; not paid doctors who want a quick dollar over some made up situation that isn't an issue.

On the plus side, people over 25 and those who don't live in the UK can continue their gaming addictions in peace...and shake their head at the absurdity of this. Please let new "patients" be greeted at the door by someone in a creepy Dr. Mario costume.

What about the Netflix addiction clinic or the YouTube addiction clinic?
