My favorite author, actually!
Hello to everyone. My name is Alexander, I’m 29 and I play games almost all of my life. From 6 years old.
My addiction destroys my life slowly but surely, like an anaconda. I’m playing games 20-30 hours per week, with usual consequences - shitty social life, short nights, head full of gaming thoughts... You know.
And I love gaming in broad sense. Computer games are just the tip of the iceberg. I love all games, love progress, love competition.
So, that’s annoying. I remember that once I really changed my life and decided not to play computer games anymore! Try to understand my line of thoughts: “Computer games are for stupid people and kids. I don’t play them anymore, cause Im old and smart... and what games do play old and smart people?..”
And after 2 months I found myself as crazy chess addict, that shout on online enemy’s and watch chess tutorials all night long.
And that addiction never really give up. Poker. Chess and checkers. Guitar shredding. Online games, offline games, real card games (I play monopoly like crazy, and usually hate everyone after). Even idle games, my god...
Now I really want to change my life and refuse:
- to play any games! Even chess.
- to watch news. In my evil country there are a lot of funny (in Mordor sense) news - Putin, wars, political prisoners, poverty, etc
- to watch YouTube videos (except learning)
I hope that today will be first day of my healthy non gaming life!
