Should We Treat Game Addiction As A Serious Problem? | OpenGrowth

Computers are often used not only for enterprise but for recreation in an increasingly technology-dependent world. Moreover, in the future, every individual in the world will own or use a computer. Thus, computers have become a social and economic need that penetrates every aspect of our lives. 

Also, computer gaming fascinates the public. This element of machine use is pleasant, and most people, especially children, have incorporated gaming into their routine lives. It lacks practicality. There have been two distinct kinds of machine players. The primary players are pro-gamers, professional and talented players who compete and make money in tournaments. A player can be sponsored and earn a wage depending on the success and reputation of the game. The second is the active participants who play for leisure without money. They will play socially, spend time on an outing with friends, enjoy the game or relieve depression. Therefore, all computing uses and the harmful effects of using machines regularly should be explored with the requisite precaution.

Why Are Video Games Termed To Be Addictive?

 

Some people risk their careers and marriages to spend 60 hours a week playing on the internet. Some kids and teens are so addicted to video games that they start throwing tantrums on their parents when ordered to drop the remote. 

Many of us have read or seen cases of this kind that prove that video games are addictive. Although observational data does not consist of experimental study, familiarity in the physical world and increasing consciousness in other behavioral addictions illustrate why the phenomenon of addiction to video games is progressively recognized.

In addition, video games have the same effect on the brain as addictive drugs: dopamine, a chemical that strengthens the action, is released while playing video games. Let us find out the various reasons that ignite addiction.

 

Stage 1 - Early experience of a person with video gaming, where pleasure and maybe the obsession with such games can be easily developed.

Stage 2 - Gaming begins to take on a more significant role in the player’s life, which may demand increasing requirements for equipment, software, and time investments. Additional tasks can start to take on a decreased importance.

Stage 3 - Gaming starts to play an essential role in the person’s lives, with their thoughts constantly focused on gaming and other hobbies. With the majority of the spare time of the person still being spent gaming, other activities are constantly being ignored. 

Stage 4 - The dominant or even sole concern of the person is gaming. Playing takes all their spare time, and energy is concentrated, likely at the expense of work or academic advancement. In addition, dietary and sleep habits can be greatly changed by endless play, and the player may be utterly distorted from friends, family or the natural world.

Symptoms

 

Symptoms

 

Many addictions lead the user to hidden and lonely behavior and potentially to loneliness, and indeed the normal isolated existence of most gaming is particularly harmful in this respect. As a result, many signs of gaming addiction can remain invisible or dissimulated for some time, as the addict leaves social circles and even major links. However, there are a variety of indications that occur when a person is addicted.

 

Physical Symptoms

A lot of physical symptoms of gaming addiction exist around us. Most prevalent in children are eating disorders, poor sleep, and learning enhancement failure. 

Recognizing the physical signs of video game dependence at an early stage is crucial to help them achieve the game addiction fixation they deserve.

For Instance, Fatigue, Migration, Eye Strain, Eating Disorder, etc.

 

Mental Symptoms

The withdrawal of addictive behaviors can occur if the person is addicted. Children with gaming addiction are less focused and less concerned about their commitments. 

People with video game dependence, in particular, may experience offensive behavior because of the nature of the games.

For Instance - Lack Of Concentration And Focus, Attaining The Giving Up Attitude, Deceiving Family Members etc.

How To Control Gaming Addiction?

 

  1. Set Boundaries - Make sure your children comply with time limits.

  2. Minimize Resourcefulness - To resist a relentless temptation, just select one 

  3. platform for playing games – they can get rid of games for all except one of them like they can use a tablet, a computer or a console.

  4. Reduce Phone Usage - Addictive telephone games can be more dangerous when your phone is with you during the day. By restricting the use of their phone, they can not be able to play games endlessly. And hence, controllable playing.

  5. Therapy With Loved Ones - Damaged marriages are one of the serious signs of addiction disease. Make modifications. Family and friends can be therapeutic. Allow them to establish the limitations during their game time.

 

The findings indicate that while approximately 90 percent of the population of players don't play cripplingly or adversely, there is still a large minority of people who succumb to video games and suffer over time from addiction signals.

These results also contradict the gamers in the backyard with their family, who cannot support themselves economically or get a career due to their attachment to online gaming. 

Therefore, attention and communication in terms of addiction to video game disease is the most precise factor regarding curing the same.

HOW I GOT THE RIGHT LOTTERY NUMBER FROM A SPELL CASTER: I am a 59-year-old IT worker and it was going to be our 25-year wedding anniversary but we had no money to celebrate it. I was given an assignment in the office so I went online to search for answers then I saw testimonies where people thanked lord Bubuza for giving them the right lottery winning numbers, I was very interested to win too so I contacted lord Bubuza via WhatsApp: +1 951 442 2214. Lord Bubuza responded, saying he will cast a spell and reveal the lottery winning numbers with his spiritual powers. I provided the items He needed to cast the spell and he gave me 6 numbers after casting the spell. I was so confident of winning so I went to a convenience store and bought a $10 Jumbo Bucks ticket from Gate City Express on East Lee Street in Greensboro and went home. I sat outside and scratched the ticket. When I saw that I won $1,000,000. My name is Licette Griffin, How can I thank Lord Bubuza enough? Join me thanks him via website: Lordbubuzamiraclework.com or email: lordbubuzamiraclework @ hotmail . com

I became vastly wealthy overnight. Being a winner of a multi-million dollar lottery certainly will be a life-changing event for almost every single lottery winner. My name is Mavis Wanczyck from Chicopee, Massachusetts, the famous PowerBall lottery winner of $758 million (£591m). I know many people would wonder how I had won the lottery. Would you believe me if I told you that I did it with spell casting? I met this famous spell caster known as Doctor Odunga and he was the one who did it for me. As shocking as it was to me, my famous comment to the press was “ I’m going to go and hide in my bed.” Never did I believe that Doctor Odunga made me wealthy overnight. If you want to have your chance of winning and becoming very wealthy just like me, contact Doctor Odunga at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com OR WHATSAPP HIM at +2348167159012 and you will be lucky. Thanks for reading and hope to see you at the top
