Online Text Games: Online Game Addictions – Part One

My name is Lorna and I am addicted to online games. I wrote this article to inform all of you about the addiction issues and to give a couple of aids in trying to beat it, and to bring you back to the real life without losing something you appreciate altogether.

To some people this topic will be laughable, but too many times we are faced with the scandal of someone having flashed up on the news, having passed on from playing a game too long. Of course that is an extreme scenario, but your life can still suffer in other ways in case you are addicted to what you are doing. Believe it or not, game companies really don’t want you to pass on; though perhaps they are slightly smug on the off chance that you become addicted as that obviously means they are doing something right, no?

Enjoying yourself in a text game means that you will put more time into playing it, perhaps spending money to better your characters as you progress through your adventures. This is good for a text game company as the more you appreciate, the more you spend and even spread the word about an awesome text game you are playing… but there are limits on what you should be giving up to get your fix.

Here comes some science. Presently, I don’t usually like science, but this is quite interesting. Being addicted to video games, computer use and computer games (like text games) has not get been given a formal diagnosis as an addiction – something about lack of proof – yet hundreds and เดิมพัน UFABET thousands of us are suffering with this critical need to return to our gaming worlds. So what do we do?

Well, recognizing you have a text game addiction is one of the first steps to solving it. Nobody needs a psych degree to understand that (and I don’t have one anyway). I completely suggest to you that on the off chance that you believe you have a serious, life-altering addiction to any game then to see further and professional help solving it. I’m no professional, but I have had (and still have) an addiction to some games like Achaea and World of Warcraft. For some, it can ruin their life. Let’s not let that happen to you, eh?

Step One: Figuring out you are addicted.

There is no hard and fast guideline for determining whether you are officially addicted to video games or text games. Many people will do their own odd things, but there are more common reactions. One of the major signs is when a player becomes more interested in the text game they are playing than their outside game lives. This can mean losing interest in socializing with friends, not answering the phone or replying to texts, and so on to more harmful behaviors like students not turning up for lectures or taking days off work (or even simply not turning up to work).

Did you know the recommended time limit that you should allow yourself on any computer or text game is two hours out of each day? I certainly didn’t. Hell, I can’t even manage to eat five fruit or vegetables a day, yet two hours seems like nothing compared to how long I normally spend on text games.

Addicted text game players may also not notice the loss of other things from remembering when they last ate (of they remember at all) to missing meals or eating a significantly higher diet of shoddy nourishment which can lead to unhealthy weight loss or gain. Personal cleanliness can sometimes go down the drain, as there seems to become less and less time to do such mundane things as wash or shave.

The one I have discovered most common in text game addiction, especially in myself, is the altering of sleep patterns. I have never really had a good one; always being a night bird and usually ending up in bed by 1:00am anyway, but presently I see myself hitting the sack at 4-5:00am. I have questioned myself on this many times and I have several answers; I am addicted to caffeine, and also the majority of the text game players (and my friends who play text games with me) are in the USA, thus leading me to adjust to their time zone norms.
