&: Withdrawal Symptoms that may happen, when leaving the games

Withdrawal symptoms - these things can/may happen when a person quits gaming.

  • Anger (especially if forced to leave by parents or someone else)
  • Feeling of emptiness
  • Depressed
  • Relief
  • Sleep pattern interrupted
  • Have fantasies and dream about the game
  • Urge to go back to gaming and try to control the time played
  • Think about the game for extended periods of time
  • Feelings become uncontrolled
  • Rampant mood swings
  • Crying excessively
  • Feel anxious
  • Feel afraid
  • Feel irritable
  • Feel distressed
  • Feel sad, in mourning
  • Feeling lonely, bored
  • Don't know what to do next
  • Without direction
  • Very restless
  • Sleep alot, to catch up.
  • Feel sick to stomach
  • Procrastinate in real life
  • Feeling afraid and wanting to run, instead of facing the fears
  • Feel empty and grey, and in a lot of pain
  • Knowing that if you were gaming you wouldn't feel so crappy
  • Allergies act up
  • Have restless, unfillfillable, taunting dreams...
  • The extreme anger is very noticable, especially if the person is TOLD to leave the game (are not doing because of their own choice). The anger is the dark side. Shame leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.
