Sucked into Addicting Games?

Most people would agree that it’s a good idea to be free from addictive behaviors. This holds just as true with gaming as with drugs, shopping, eating, and so on. People with ADHD may have problems with attention; after all it is called attention deficit disorder. But these same folk may be able to hyper-focus on things that capture their interest. Once someone is drawn into a game they might remain in that virtual world for hours at a time while the real world is ignored and tasks and obligations build up.

What do do? I guess quitting the game is an option. Using a timer to allow for a specified amount of playing time can help. Often the best bet is to have a coach, friend or family member to use for support and accountability.
