It doesn't. I actually meant to write that it hasn't influenced me to have any serious problems like depression or suicide, but went off onto the effects of playing.Originally Posted by Govtcheez
I moved out, they disturbed my precious WoW time . Naw.. Thats how it used to be, when I was in grades 6-9 or so. I used to have a limit of 4 hours/day or so to play the computer, in grade 7 (which I spent on Diablo II), I actually didnt bump that up to 8 hours/day until nearly a year later. Like many teens, I begged for no bed time, and for grades to be my responsiblity. I've always been capable of getting A's easily in school, like a lot of people, but I pretty much eased from grade 4-12 on C- to C+ and sometimes A's. Mostly that was because I didn't ever ask for help on anything, and didn't like to spend ..well.. any time on homework (like most, but I took it to the extreme). Becuase I was still able to carry myself, I guess they didn't see any problem with it. My routine wasn't noticeably different from my normal one anyway. I usually always was in my room anyway. I don't know how I managed to get them to allow me to be in my room all the time (maybe its because they know I'd be going into computers as a career). So with that, and my addiction to computers over the years, and being almost 18 years, its pretty easy to see how they could let that happen. I keep saying their crazy, but they have high hopes for me, even with me taking half a year off, and still think I'll get where I want to be in life.One question Dae. Where the heck were your parents / guardians?
When my mom felt I was spending too much time on the computer she took steps to stop me because that was her responsibility.
The whole go to bed at 5am, and get up at 3pm only happened on weekends, and after I took half a year off. It took me a few months to lower my addiction to MMORPGs. I'm doing fine now, that was a typo in the last post - it should be "get my head straight ( which it is now".
