  1. Hi everyone my name is Michael and I'm 27 years old. I have been playing video games 20+ years. I suspect I have a gaming addiction and have suspected I have had one every year since 2015. I don't enjoy video games anymore but I can't stop playing them, it's been that way for years. I have relapsed over 100+ times. Video games have negatively affected my finances spending $1000 on games that I knew I wouldn't enjoy and still playing them, that money was suppose to be for student loans. Also I would tell myself to take 1 month break off video games and don't play no matter what and I end up playing the next day or the next week getting crazy urges to play games. Also I have relapsed 3 times this week, hating myself that I relapsed and felt so guilty, even my bank account went in the negatives because I bought xbox live. I had to rush to the bank and deposit cash because they would of charged me overdraft fees. I'm mostly a logical person but when it comes to this I'm the most irrational person. I was also suppose to learn programming months ago for my future but I neglected it and just played video games instead for months. Do I have a gaming addiction?
  2. I just feel so much denial, I can't come to terms being addiction. I feel I'm so dependent on gaming at this point. I just want to quit but get rationalizations to keep playing and have irresistible urges to play games I hate.
  3. Hello my name is Michael and I'm 27 years old, I'm wondering if I'm addicted to video games. I'm at a point where I don't enjoy video games anymore but I still play them and can't stop, it's been like this since 2015. It has negatively affected my finances, I have spent $600 on games when that $600 should of been towards savings and student loans. I would buy games not enjoy that game and keep buying them and not enjoying them, I have bought 20 games and didn't enjoy a single one but kept buying them thinking I will enjoy the next one. I also get irresistible urges to play game I don't like, I feel obligated to play it seems. I have also bought Xbox Live and refunded it over 35 times the last few years. I look up gaming videos when not playing, I do that 4-6 hours per day even if I'm not interested in gaming. I sweared off online multiplayer games saying I won't play no matter what for 90 days and I broke that rule on the 18th day watching so many gaming videos this week and playing lots of multiplayer games, I felt so bad about it. I just spent my money which should of been towards food and student loans on a $65 game, I couldn't resist it. I felt so guilty and hated myself. I have been in denial for years I just can't accept I have addiction. Lastly 10 years ago when my xbox died and the red ring of death I got very depressed and call my friend how I was thinking of suicide because my Xbox died. Thank you everyone for reading and hope you can help me determine if this is an addiction or not, I'm getting really desperate right now.

  5. Hello my name is Michael and I'm 26 years old, I have played video games since I was 5 years old. Now I'm wondering if I'm addicted to video games. If I play them but only play for 1-2 hours but delete them afterwards. The next day I re-download them even though I don't enjoy them at all. I have installed and reinstalled the game 50+ times even though I don't enjoy them. Not a day goes by when I don't look at gaming news on the internet, I have no interest in gaming but I just check the gaming news anyway, that usually is 4+ hours a day of checking gaming news/videos. I'm not like that surfing the internet with anything else. I also think a lot about video games in my head, for example I always think If I should quit multiplayer games and stick with single player(never enjoyed single player that much) It's constant everyday. Can you please help and give me some advice. Thank you. Michael
