As someone with mental health issues I've struggled with addictions in my life, namely video game and porn addiction. Way back when the original Fable came out I used to play it a lot I would play it for 5-8 hours eventually it got so bad I was playing it for 24+ hours strait (yeah I know crazy right?) and latter when I got online with my first laptop I would surf YouTube a lot for fun videos but overtime I started venturing to porn sites and I collected a large mass of images to the point that it was consuming my life. Well getting to my video game addiction I eventually gave my controller to my mother so that I wouldn't be able to play Fable for 24+ hours. Overtime I got better but for my porn addiction fortunately I had Sandboxie which prevented most if not all of the malware from loading on my system. And just like my video game addiction I had to take action so I deleted all of my porn and not just delete but wipe it out so that I wouldn't be able to recover it with recovery tools, I'm now much more conservative with porn and as for my video game addiction I avoid certain types of games like open world/sandbox games or RPGs for example when I'm feeling neurotic.

Which brings to this video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wmtPh3z85c&feature=youtu.be&t=12

Gaming disorder really? What about other so called disorders like TV disorder or social media disorder for example, I mean all these addictions are forms of OCD take that from a person who struggled with it in the past I mean they should put my father into therapy because according to these authoritarians he has TV disorder because he watches TV for about 12 hours a day which in reality is just a for OCD again.This why politics should keep out of science just like religion.

 

Please share your thoughts. And have any of you ever struggled with addictions?

I'm always sorry to hear about addictions. I have had four children, two have died with smoking related diseases, and the other two, although trying to give up, are still smoking. Porn is an interesting addiction. When I discovered porn I looked at it for several days. I then stopped, because of the repetitive nature of it, It became boring to me. I suppose I was always addicted to sport. Now I am old and have back trouble, I can't do that anymore. I do watch a lot of TV these days, just to stop being bored. I do read a lot. Ever since I was a child I read. If I do now, after an hour or two, my eyes get itchy and sore. What a tale of woe. But you did ask!
