Video games can be fun, but sometimes their use becomes concerning. An addiction to video games can leave you feeling isolated and disconnected from the world. In severe cases, it can lead you to sever relationships and even neglect your own physical health.

So, if you have a video game addiction, you should definitely seek help from a licensed therapist or counselor. Wherever you are located in California from Alameda to Yucaipa or even Montclair, or anywhere else nearby, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

How Do You Know if You Have a Video Game Addiction?

When does a love for video games cross the line and become an addiction? It can be difficult to tell, but there are some signs to look out for.

Here are five signs you are addicted to video games:

  • You feel upset when you can’t play video games.
  • Your gaming habits cause rifts or separation between yourself and those you love.
  • You pick up the controller to escape or numb negative feelings and stress.
  • Things that you used to enjoy don’t give you as much pleasure.
  • You always think about gaming.
