Anyone who has experienced it knows that computer games addiction is real. You feel unable to leave the computer no matter what else you need to do and how important it might be – and it can have a real negative impact on your professional and social life.
What usually happens is that your brain is using the virtual fantasy world to connect with others and substituting it for real-life human connections.In most severe cases an individual addicted to internet or other computer games can completely stop feeling the need for socializing with others, you develop a connection or loyalty to other players although they’re actually strangers.
But sooner or later you experience the effects of your self-imposed isolation to the real world: people stop calling, your job suffers and your romantic relationships start falling apart.
Fortunately, if you’re here it means that you’ve recognized the need to stop with this self-destructive behavior. The next level in the game isn’t really worth jeopardizing significant relationships and educational or career opportunities – and you now need a real addiction recovery treatment to stop giving in to your urge to play.
As difficult as it may sound to you right now, you can actually overcome this urge relatively easily if you make a real effort to change the way your mind sees the game and break the cycle of conditioned behavior. These affirmations can help you in the process, as repeating them will make you more focused and motivated to take action in real life and to remember this whole other world that you’ve almost forgotten about.
To make them as effective as possible, repeat a set of affirmations of your choice twice a day. Do it like you mean it, confidently and with a strong voice. The whole point is that you affirm to yourself that you’re ready and willing to make this change – so good luck and see you in the real world 🙂
