Video games and depression

In connection with the development of digital technologies in the world, addiction to computer games has appeared. It occurs when a teenager or adult spends more than four hours a day playing.

Boys in adolescence who are addicted to computer games may develop episodes of depression that manifest with anxiety and irritability ( Journal ” Computers in Human Behavior “).

To overcome addiction to computer games and subsequent depression, friendships with peers are necessary, which should be formed not in virtual life, but in real life.

Teenagers who are overly addicted to computer games are at risk of developing various addictions , ranging from alcoholism to dependence on psychoactive substances. According to the Minutko clinic, teenagers with gambling addiction were brought up in families where there was overprotection , and were distinguished by a tendency to manipulate people.
