How Do I Know if I am Gaming Too Much?
- Do you spend a lot of time thinking about games even when you are not playing, or planning when you can play next?
- Do you feel restless, irritable, moody, angry, anxious, bored, or sad when attempting to cut down or stop gaming, or when you are unable to play?
- Do you feel the need to play for increasing amounts of time, play more exciting games, or use more powerful equipment to get the same amount of excitement you used to get?
- Have you felt that you should play less, but are unable to cut back on the amount of time you spend playing games?
- Have you lost interests in, or reduced participation in other recreational activities (hobbies, meetings with friends) due to gaming?
- Have you continued to play a game even though you were aware of negative consequences, such as not getting enough sleep, being late to school/work, spending too much money, having arguments with others, or neglecting important duties?
- Have you been deceptive, or lied to family, friends, or others about how much you game, or tried to keep your family or friends from knowing how much you game?
- Do you game to escape from or forget about personal problems, or to relieve uncomfortable feelings such as guilt, anxiety, helplessness or depression?
- Have you risked or lost significant relationships, job, educational, or career opportunities because of gaming?
