Videogames have been found to create a dopamine response in the brain, much
like delicious foods, sex, love, gambling, shopping, and other addictive
behaviors. On eHow, there are some things you can do to offset the
withdrawal, which is a very real brain-chemical withdrawal. Me… I run
long distances…6-8 miles every other day. Distance running increases
dopamine, endorphins, and cannabinoids (the same chemical responsible for
MJ highs)…naturally. Build up slowly, though. Go easy.
Chocolate chip cookies! A wonderful mistake. In 1930, Ruth Wakefield worked
at a restaurant named The Tollhouse Inn, and wanted to make chocolate
cookies, but ran out of chocolate. She had a chocolate bar, so she broke it
into pieces and added it to the dough, thinking that the chocolate would
melt and make them into chocolate cookies. Instead, the chocolate chip
cookie was “born.” 🙂 Yum!
Yes, just like taking out a vice, which admittedly is a way of
self-medicating, finding another.
2:06 Exactly how I feel my parents are like.
I use to be addicted too games till I got older then I lost my interest in
everything, reading, drawing, playing guitar and now my only real interest
I am 15 and i feel i have this video game addiction that is being spoken
about in this video. I have had my Xbox 360 taken away from me but I
honestly don’t no what to do in replace of this. I have tried playing more
football, playing darts and doing more karate than I usually do. However I
NONE of these have successfully met my needs and I can’t think of anything
else to fill the void. Do you have any suggestions of methods I can use to
reduce my boredom or help with my situation?
I think I may have Aspergers but I am self-diagnosing. I remember when I
was 12, my mother took away the cord to the tv in anger and just left me by
myself because she said I watched too much tv. I was left all alone in an
apartment where I had nothing to do and was just left there with my
depression and anger. I was substituting tv as a coping mechanism from all
the trauma and depression I was feeling at the time and she just took it
away and left me without a substitution.
Go to a doctor. He/She can give you a real diagnosis.
The way i stopped my video game addiction was by getting addicted to
something else lol. For me sunshine and an outdoor hobby made games a lot
less appealing very rapidly.
I’m 28 and just recently found out about AS. I think I might have it and
never really knew, since I just figured “that’s just the way I am”. I’ve
seen a bunch of your videos and I happen to identify with several of the
things you describe. Videogame addiction since 5-6 years-old is one of
them. Really, just like you said: after a long, stressful day (or pretty
much any average day, for someone with these quirks); the only thing I want
to do is sit in the couch and play for hours. Good info! 🙂
I don’t really need to know if I have it or not. It’s not that important.
