Video Game Addicts May Neglect Other Areas Of Their Life
Because an addict spends so much time on the computer or playing video games, other areas of life often become neglected. They may grow distant from friends and family who had previously been close. If they’re in school, homework may go unfinished, causing grades to slip. Their production at work may decline, which could ultimately put them at risk for being fired. In more extreme cases, they may even neglect personal hygiene, choosing to play video games rather than taking a shower.
