Important, interview on addiction

Hello, my name is Laura Lane and I am a journalism student at Columbia College Chicago. I am currently working on a story about video games and the addiction towards them as well as the social aspect of them. I was wondering if anyone would be available for an interview on the subject.

You can get back to me through this site or email. Thanks!

Laura, I would be delighted

Laura, I would be delighted to be part of your story. My son, who is 18 y.o. now, moved out about a week and 1/2 ago because we blocked the WoW portals on our wireless router. As of this evening, he was still lying about anything and everything. He was also telling us that he does not have a problem with WoW. They call it "World of Warcrack", probably because it is so **** addictive!

Barrett Hansen, mom of World of Warcrack gamer.

I also would be happy to

I also would be happy to share my experiences. I'm an ex-addict, been in recovery for close to 3 months. Feel free to pm or email me. Thanks for working towards greater publicity on the issue, even if it's just within your school.

HI Laura, I'm always willing

HI Laura, I'm always willing to help in any way I can if it means that I can help someone break the addiction. The only game I played was Second Life, which was my addiction. I don't know if you count that as video games or not?

I could get you in contact

I could get you in contact with my son, who recently dislosed his addiction, after failing all his college classes last semester. Thanks for bringing this addiction to people's attention.
