On the wrong road

by Anonymous

I am 13 years old and I have a video game/computer addiction. I get good grades in school (because my dad watches how I do.) I take part in karate; haven't been in it very long, so I'm a white belt. However, I'm concerned about my life style.

On weekends I play pretty much all day. Though that I'm concerned about it, I cannot help but to play. (I also have ADHD) Please, help me before its to late.


You may not have an addiction yet. You have a busy life during the week, but it's possible that you're just bored on the weekends. When you're bored the easiest thing to do is to go on the computer. So if you're concerned about this, you must change it.

If you're interested in sports, join a team or go to the Y. Go biking, jogging, hang out with friends, or get involved in volunteer work. Tell your parents that you feel that you're spending too much time on the computer and ask them if they have something for you to do, or perhaps they can spend quality time with you.

There are many things to do on the weekend, but you have to seek them out, and create a balance between activities and your computer time.
