This is heartbreaking. There is usually underlying issues behind any addiction, even computer gaming. Listen as Jacob tells his story of hitting his bottom with addiction, and how he finally got help for it, help that probably saved his life. If you identify with his story, get help, otherwise things will only get worse. Don't be ashamed. Others feel the same way, and while the details may be different, there's some part of their stories that are like yours. You're never alone. :wink:

"I've known more than a few people who have fallen into unhealthy gaming habits in the past, and in almost
every case the gaming has been a symptom, not part of the problem. The people who gamed compulsively
were suffering from depression, isolation, or were dealing with other social anxieties. The games made the
affects of these problems worse and gave the people something to use to escape their day-to-day existence
but, if you removed the games completely, the root problems would still be there."
