Carolyn Hax: Game Addiction Hurts Relationship

Dear Carolyn:

I have a close friend who's hasn't been doing anything but playing video games for days at a time! I'm getting kinda worried about him, he hasn't been using the bathroom, eating, or even sleeping. I fear that it's gonna get out of control. I just care about him, & I wouldn't want anything to happen to him. I think he's getting addicted & I'm certain if I don't act on this, it'll lead to things much worse. I just don't know where to start or how. I really need your help. How do I help my friend with his "game addiction" & stop it before it's too late?


- Concerned friend (Sam)

Concerned friend:

People who struggle with game addiction are often in denial about their situation & will be unwilling to seek help. They may not recognize the negative effects their behavior has on themselves and others.

It'll be challenging to help your close friend with this type of addiction. You should try a direct, heart-to-heart conversation that can help him realize what he's doing & how it's bad for him. But when it comes to addiction, especially game addiction, your friend will struggle to see it and acknowledge it. A more focused approach will be needed. You may need to gather with others and take action through a formal intervention.

Hope this helps!

The ultimately, stunningly beautiful action packed movie, Brain Jack, is a dystopian action-thriller that is guaranteed to capture the attention of an audience whom is obsessed with technology. However, one does not need to be highly educated on technology to enjoy this suspenseful film. Sam is an intelligent but relatable protagonist. His hacking skills cause the temporary shutdown of the internet, banking, television, radio, cell phones, and social media. When an old friend dies as a result of gaming addiction, Sam feels serious guilt because he was busy with his new occupation at the time. While much of the story's action involves cybercrime, the military becomes involved, introducing some intense violence as well. With a suspenseful action-thriller with a little bit of romance, families & friends can gather together to enjoy this breath-taking story that has two Oscar nominees since the first year of its release. Are you up for the thrill?


Over the past few months, there has been many reports of dead bodies found inside civilians' town homes. How, you may wonder, this is no murder case, this is the effects of Game Addiction. There were 5 bodies found that were from the ages of 13-24. All but 1 body was un recognizable. The only one that was identified belonged to a 16 year-old boy named Derek Fargas. He was found fallen out of his office chair, hooked with all of the headset cables attached to him, and what seemed like burnt skin from the Neuro Headset, electrocuting him. Is this a coincidence, or something more?
