Hi, this is my first time asking something on the forum. Three years ago: I gamed in all my free time. Grades suffering. Two years ago: I had gaming under control. Past summer, I managed to stay away from games for half a year. Then the cravings reintroduced themselves and I allowed myself three hours of playing. That was 68 days ago, and since I've experienced frequent cravings day by day, week by week, intensifying in the weekends and staying low during the days in school. The game I crave is Europa Universalis IV. I'm questioning my decision to quit; perceiving a sense of meaning in EU4 as it provides great insight into geography enhightening my grades in geography. And in combination with learning history, I strongly crave to start Steam, download EU4, and in the game changing the course of history as the Swedish Empire. My question is whether I may allow myself one to two hours of gaming each weekend; what are the pros and cons, and can I avoid becoming "addicted"? On the other hand, will the fantasies and cravings ever stop if I quit. And if so, how may I replace the needs apparently fulfilled by EU4? This is my first time asking on the forum. I thank you for any replies on beforehand!
