Interview for short doc on game addiction.

Hello,

My name is Robert Downey and I am producing a school news piece on the topic of video game addiction. I would like to interview recovering game addicts to hopefully spread the word about this problem. I personally have lost friends to World of Warcraft, and stopped playing it myself because of the repercussions it has on personal relationships. You don't have to interview in person (although if you are willing and in the LA area, we'd love to speak with you) we can do an interview over Skype, email or phone. The piece I am putting together isn't looking to find blame for this issue, we want to explore both sides of this. We are speaking to gamers dealing with addiction, and those who think it is a fallacy, we also have a specialist signed on to interview with us. I hope to raise awareness through this piece, because I feel a personal obligation to help people like my friends who've lost so much due to this affliction. If you have any questions please post here or contact me through e-mail: filmitreal@yahoo.com

It was a way for me to feel important for once i just thank god i started playing basketball i lost about 40-50 pounds but gained again when i stoped practicing i had lost contact with almost all my friends i droped out of school because of i didnt attend the last 3 weeks .. in those 3 weeks the Lich king expansion came im so happy that i have the support to do something with my life here in iceland im going now to school after the new year and im gonna do everything to suceed i have no one to blame except my self and i wanted to say ty to world of warcraft cause it helped me through difficult part of my life i am now off wow for 2 months doing well i even called my old friends and we are gonna hang out tomorrow so im happy but there is a part of me wanting to go play again and i fight that urge. Well thats all i got to say goodluck on your interview hope it goes well just dont make it a blame fest its our fault as gamers we should have more sense then wasting our brains on computer games i wont go into details of why we love video games and why they are addicting. well see you if you choose to use my story in any way you have my aprooval Ty.
