Lockdown: Understanding Gaming Addiction ?
Online gaming is hailed a saviour for millions in self-isolation but playing too many hours of video games can have a negative effect on your relationships and work/education life balance. The first, and often the hardest, step is recognising the symptoms of a video game addiction and realising that you need to make a change.
Overcoming an addiction to video games, like all other addictions, can be a difficult process. However, in time someone can learn to enjoy them without being addicted to them.
