As a 21-year-old man, I have struggled with gaming addiction and the toll it has taken on my mental health. It’s easy to get lost in the virtual world and forget about the real one. But I refuse to let it define me. I’ve started seeking help and talking to others who understand what I’m going through. It’s not easy, but I’m making progress. I’ve found new hobbies to fill my time and have been setting boundaries for myself when it comes to gaming. It’s a constant battle, but I know I’m not alone in this. For anyone else struggling with gaming addiction, remember that it’s okay to ask for help and take small steps towards recovery. We can find a balance and take back control of our lives.
