This one is pretty self-explanatory. How have you tried to reduce your online time or gaming habits? What has worked and what hasn't?

Hi... try going to the gaming addiction forum on facebook. There is a counselor online who will answer questions specifically. I think you just like it and post up.

In my experience the only means of recovering from this disease is a complete psychological change of the person's core values. Also referred to as a 'spiritual experience'. While it is possible to achieve this by steadfast observance of a particular religious practice, I find it much more appealing to work with other addicts like myself and attend recovery meetings for recovered addicts.

Furthermore, I have come to learn and accept that this disease is more than a habit. While the word is technically correct it carries insufficient weight to effectively describe the affliction of addiction. The craving, powerlessness, and terrible anxiety ridden depression that we addicts feel on a regular basis, which only increases over time in conjunction with our craving and gaming.

Many of the things that I was told to do in order to help myself actually hold true once the craving has been lifted. Things like sleeping, eating, working out, taking care of my personal affairs and keeping organized. These are all useful and healthy habits that aid in creating a balanced and healthy life.

None of that is possible when you're overwhelmed with the desire to game, too tired to think straight, and too manic to go to sleep.

So in-effect, the best way to deal with games is to engage the root of the problem directly through a recovery group or other spiritual means and conduct an extensive inventory of our own emotional baggage and the cornucopia of skellingtons in our closet.
