What is video game addiction?
While an average gamer plays for 4 – 6 hours a week, you may have a video game addiction if you spend more than six hours per week in gaming. Video games can be a fun pastime activity for players of all ages and offer an opportunity for individuals to relax and connect with friends. However, a mere video game hobby can escalate into compulsive behavior and turn into addiction without you even realizing it.
Besides, video games can cause adults and children to develop unhealthy and obsessive relationships with fictional characters and lead to mental health problems. Video game addiction can stem from other mental health disorders like depression, anxiety, PTSD, etc. If you find yourself or your loved one spend too much time in gaming, you must consider professional behavioral addiction treatment to prevent adverse consequences.
