For Parents: How do you help your son/daughter quit playing video games? The tragedy is that many of the people playing video games night after night are aware of this too! (If this is you, you’ve come to the right place.) One night you decide you have had enough and you try to quit. The reason they are playing video games is to avoid studying!
Maybe you even type “How to quit playing video games” into Google. A bunch of crap that doesn’t work at all, because the people who wrote the articles wrote what the What the fuck?

It was also a challenge to myself to see if I could move to another city and make new friends.
I didn’t play video games casually either; I played them to an extremely competitive level, competed in tournaments and ran one of my teams like you would run a business.

Video games are without question one of the hardest and biggest obstacles to overcome when you first get involved in a journey of self-improvement.
