WHAT ARE YOU ADDICTED TO?

avatar

When a particular habit becomes unbridled in such a way that it affects other areas of your personal life, then it becomes an addiction.

There are lots of awful things people are addicted to such as lesbianism, masturbation, gambling, drugs, and the rest. No doubt, there are also other good things people are addicted to and one of them is a paid video game which is the main theme of this week's edition three contest in #Hivelearners community.

However, I think that addiction of any kind is BAD no matter how much money we earn from it. I know of rising star game and splinterland in the blockchain, there are a host of other games too, these games are so rewarding to their players that they earn fat dollars just by playing the game. Earning becomes a source of motivation and some people are always glued to their screens from morning to night. Other areas of their lives such as family members, friends, and social gatherings become a forgotten issue. Some deprive themselves of good sleep and food due to this game.

Well, research shows that the human brain consumes lots of energy, and when one dedicates his or her whole being to playing a rewarding game, it could affect the health as lack of sleep and food is found missing. This might sound funny but it's the truth.
Even if money is involved in a game, I feel the addiction is still bad. Everything should have a limit so that it becomes more beneficial.

I was once a game addict though not a paid game. I remember how most of my food burn due to this game. I remember playing this game even on the road while walking🤦🤦. It was bad, maybe it entered into my bloodstream but I later had a rethink and told myself that I can do without this game, I uninstalled it from my phone and had my sanity bad.

Even if it was a rewarding game that gives me dollars, everything should have a limit. We should learn how to get some things balanced so that other areas of our lives will not be affected.

This is my view and my entry to [email protected] community contest with the topic titled GAME ADDICTIONS.

THANKS FOR READING !!!

You’re absolutely right. No matter the rewards we get from an activity, we shouldn’t get addicted to it. Other important parts of our lives could be neglected when it happens.

Finding the balance often gets hard when one is already addicted to something. It's so difficult to get off the hook of addiction but it's possible and that's if the victim is willing to overcome such.

Nice writeup Ma'am.

Everything should have a limit so that it becomes more beneficial.

People who are already addicted to video games especially if it pays, find it difficult to limit it as they are glued to it and is affecting their normal lives. I believe limiting something like this would benefit such a person and could focus on other things pertaining to his or her life.

Yeah... I have noticed that too much screen time causes one to lack sleep. And that is not good at all. We just have to be careful when handling it, that is the only way to cope. Because stopping the gaming completely might just be impossible.
Thank you for sharing this with us.

And lack of sleep can cause headaches thereby making one not to be active in the next day activity.

Limitation is the key if possible

😂 How many times did you burn your food?

It's obvious that any form of addiction is bad. Addicted gamers find it difficult to balance their social life with what they get pleasure from which is the game. It's such a bad thing. No matter how much a gamer earns from playing, the playing time should be moderated.

Thank God you uninstalled the app on your phone on time. Maybe you would have left a hot pressing iron on your million-dollar native attire while trying to end level 55. 😂—well-done mam.

one way to get rid of addiction in playing games is to remove it from the cellphone and not install it again.

I was addicted to chess until I found the addiction to martial arts more rewarding because of the physical conditioning. Anyhow, nowadays I limit my training to 3 times a week. Too much of anything take us out of balance. So we need to make sure we enjoy family, nature, good nutrition, excercising and peace of mind everyday.

Such a lovely write-up you've got here, it's true that we should at least try to get a balance between other activities and not because we're been paid, focus on those games and let other live necessity pass you by.

Well said, game addiction can make one to have little or no time for other necessary things like family, sleep, food etc.
Too much of anything is bad.
