I've played video games since I was a kid. Sometimes more, sometimes less. Often, more than I wanted to.
I've been unemployed for 3 months now. In this time, my gaming time has dramatically increased. I have a job interview for my dream job tomorrow, and needed to prepare a presentation and understand a research paper. I did the presentation, I hardly read the paper. I had all day today to read and understand that paper, and I really wanted to do so.
I didn't. I played video games all day.
And I'm likely not getting that job because of that.
I clearly have a problem, and I clearly can't stop myself from playing, even if it is important.
I posted here, and I uninstalled Steam. Now I'm going to have dinner, and use the rest of the evening preparing as good as I can for tomorrow.
I'm going to read more about this programm on the weekend, and I will write in more detail about me.
I just needed to write this post, to prove to tomorrow me that I do in fact have a gaming problem. I do not have it under control.
