You may have heard the words: internet gaming disorder, gaming addiction or compulsive gaming. These are some of the words to describe when gaming is negatively affecting your life.
For some people, gaming is a way to cope with stressful, negative or painful feelings. Gaming can feel like a relief or an ‘escape’. Some individuals find gaming leaves them feeling more anxious, down or more stressed.
Other individuals experience stressful consequences from their gaming, such as: family conflict or poor school attendance or problems eating or sleeping.
As a result, they try to cut down or quit gaming on their own and find they can’t. This can leave them feeling hopeless, frustrated, guilty.
