Another tool for robbing time is online gaming. As an adult, I had three experiences of addiction to online games.
The first time was in college. At that time, I had just finished studying hard for more than ten years. I felt that indulging in college was a compensation for the email list hard work in the past. I came across a PC game called "Dragon x Valley". The style of the game and the design of the characters are very in line with my aesthetics. With the counterattack of fighting monsters and upgrading, I soon became addicted to it. Running maps at night and teaming up to dungeons is like "creating" another virtual time and space for yourself outside the real world, where you can even make friends, fall in love, and build a union to be the boss. When I was most addicted, I often played all night, (when there was no class), got up at noon the next day, had lunch, and then played late in the afternoon...and over and over again.
Then in the second year of graduation, classmates from all over the world, who had not met for a long time, discussed what to do together, discussed several times, and finally jointly chose a mobile game. I was the most obsessed with it. Once, in order to capture the boss on the 100th floor, I hid in the toilet of the company and kept poking my fingers on the screen for more than an hour.
The most recent time was last year's Spring Festival. I felt bored, so I picked a mobile game and smashed 2,000 yuan into it. But it didn't last long, and it ended after a month, because I realized that something was wrong, and the effect of recharging could only last for a few days. If I wanted to keep ahead, I had to keep adding money to the game.
I was playing the game, not being played by the game, so I stopped the loss decisively - uninstalled. The phone returned to a state without a single game.
