Be a Gamer in Life... Level Up your Health, Skills, Lifestyle and Save the Earth


As a reformed gameaholic, I have successfully regained control of my gaming habits. I would like to share some valuable information, strategies, and actions that have aided my journey. If you find these suggestions beneficial, please don’t hesitate to share your thoughts and spread the word.

Achieve before Reward

This strategy proved highly effective for me. It is to adopt the ‘Achieve before Reward’ principle in all aspects of life, especially with gaming and screen-time entertainment. It’s ideal to accomplish multiple real-life tasks or activities before rewarding yourself, as this promotes a healthy balance and a sense of achievement.

Points System
The reward should be proportional to the accomplishment; refer to our Screen Time Management guide for parents, which features a Points and Reward System for children that helps maintain a balanced approach.

Example Activities:

  • Hoddy / Build Something
    Developing this website was one of the accomplishments I pursued to earn gaming time. I committed to working on it consistently, and with a daily effort, I steadily progressed and continued to achieve results.

    I enjoy working on websites as an IT professional, but your interests may lie elsewhere. If you possess manual skills, consider taking on a hands-on project and dedicate time to it daily. Once you’ve put in a productive day’s work, reward yourself with gaming.

    Create something in the Real World.

  • Real Life Avatar
    Focus on personal growth, both physically and mentally. Approach life like a role-playing game, where you aim to enhance your real-life attributes rather than just those in virtual worlds.

    Physically, establish a morning exercise routine. Begin with 7 minutes and gradually increase to 30 minutes or more. Move your body daily and sweat to improve your well-being, strength, and agility.

    Mentally, work on honing your communication and persuasion skills, cultivating charisma, and understanding your weaknesses and strengths.

    Map out your Real Life Avatar (This is Coming)…

Develop a clear vision of your current self and your future goals by outlining where you want to be in 6 months, a year, or even 5 years from now.

Taking Control:

Gameaholics Anonymous

The Gameaholics Anonymous website is currently in the process of transitioning to this new location. Our team is diligently working on enhancing this section, and we anticipate its completion in the near future.


A gameaholic is someone who is excessively addicted to video games. This person prioritizes playing games over all other activities and may even forego basic needs like eating and sleeping to play. Gameaholics often isolate themselves from friends and family to spend more time gaming, and their grades or work performance may suffer. In severe cases, game addiction can lead to financial ruin, relationship problems, and even mental health issues.

Controlling game addiction requires awareness, self-discipline, and commitment. If you think you or someone you know may be a gameaholic, it’s important to seek help from a professional before the addiction spirals out of control. It is possible to break the cycle of addiction and lead a healthy, balanced life.
