NEW INTERVIEW: How Pauline Narvas Overcame Gaming Addiction to Become a Programmer and Build an Incredible Life!

Recommended Posts

I keep quitting and restarting. It's this damn paladins game. I just boxed up my switch and told me daughter I'm sending it to her as a gift. It is either that or I think I will wind up smashing it.

Is it normal to relapse repeatedly? To question your dedication? To need to get rid of temptation? Soon I am going to be working nonstop and it won't matter as much. But then I was thinking if I am working nonstop than any free time I have is extra precious making even a little bit of gaming ten times worst.

Yes - perfectly normal. Addiction is the inability for someone to self-regulate regardless of the outcomes/impacts/punishment.

I am not so much a console gamer but a huge PC gamer. After spending so many years I have tried so many tricks to get games working or bypass rules etc. As I told @stablish once, "Give me enough time, I'll try to play games on a toaster."

I got around it by downgrading. I packed up my PC, gave away my graphics card, and bought a $190 laptop and put linux on it. Now if I really want to play games there is extra steps between me and doing that - which usually ends up with me giving up or getting distracted by something else.

You're not crazy mate, just feeling the symptoms of addiction. You will have a completely different perspective after 90 days.
