My Video Game Addiction + Free Ebook

Yo! What is up!

I'm Simon

I used to be a real life zombie during the six years I was addicted to video games. I've been thinking about writing about this topic for quite some time now and I've decided to share my experiences with video games and gaming in general in order to help the ones who are still stuck in this destructive pattern.

I played games like GTA IV, Red Faction Guerilla, Motorstorm: Pacific Rift, Battlefield Bad Company 2, The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim and off course the biggest of all; Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. I got over a month of in-game playing time in that game alone!

I've spent countless hours in gathering my trophies in these virtual worlds only to realize afterwards they are empty rewards. I kept playing because I had the feeling that I was going places in my life, I had a feeling of pride and self-respect after conquering a difficult challenge and most of all I felt blissfully and happy in my self-created illusive world.

Until I reached my breaking point. The point where I turned this video game addiction around. I still vividly remember the day when the pain I was experiencing was just too much to endure. It was the beginning of the summer of 2013. I didn't have any real friends, no girlfriend, no purpose and couldn't even look myself in the mirror. I simply crashed by all the pain I had caused myself. I couldn't eat, work or concentrate for days on end. I hated the person I had become and was fed up with myself.

By all standards I've had a unhealthy relationship with video games and I would like to share some key tips in dealing with video game addictions that have helped me in the past. I've written this primarily for you. Because I want you to realize there is more to life than the things that happen in front of your eyes. There is no need for any escape into virtual reality.

Secondarily I'm also writing this for myself, as a reminder of the person I once was and who I'll never be again. I genuinely hope you too will eventually become the person you've set out to be and succeed in any endeavor you embark upon.

Anyway, the ebook is in kindle format and can be found @

Its temporarily for sale for just 99 cents, bargain price if you ask me ;)

If you're interested in a <strong>free</strong> <strong>review copy</strong> you can just send me an email to and I'll send you the book as a gift on amazon and in return I only ask you to review the ebook after you've read it!

Feedback helps me to improve my content and help others in a better way!

Take care and thanks for reading this post! Deeply appreciate it!
