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.

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?
