At the start of the show, Cam shared on his story and experience recovering from video game addiction, as well as how rejection can lead young men to turn to video games. Next, we talked about how gaming affects people’s view of the real world since it is a safe space to fail. We also talked about the role parents have in this addiction crisis. We also discussed:
- What parents can do to stop this problem
- Why kids need to learn emotional resilience
- The media’s role in glamorizing video games
Overexposure to video games numbs our pleasure response, numbs satisfaction with other experiences in our life, ruins willpower, and harms the quality of our relationships. From an emotional, physical, and mental standpoint: detoxing from gaming takes quality of life up from 3/10, to 7/10– in 90 days. This is how powerful it is. It is so essential that we solve video game addiction so that we can make men strong, emotionally resilient, well-adjusted and healthy.
