Hypnosis for Gaming addiction
Hypnosis for Gaming addiction is popular and effective. Do you love games? Almost everyone does. Games are a nice way to relax, interact with others, and sometimes a fun way to learn. For most kids growing up in developed countries, games are an integral part of their lives. Games provide a fun way of learning and bonding with other kids. Technology has made it easier for children and adults to access various games from the comfort of our homes. While this can boost learning with educative games and enjoyment as video games look very realistic and are very interactive; it comes at a price. Sometimes the games you play can play games on your mind. Many people have become addicted to video games and some others play games excessively. Why is addiction a problem? What is the difference between an addiction and excessive game playing?
Difference between gaming addiction and excessive game playing.
Video game addiction has similar characteristics to other types of addiction. We are going to give you some questions to ask yourself. If your answer is yes to these questions, then it is possible that you may be addicted to games. Ask yourself these questions:
- Is video game(s) the most important things in your life?
- Do you make gaming the first most important activity of your day?
- Do your spouse, children or friends complain that you play too many games and neglect them?
- Do you have this feeling of happiness or “high” that you don’t get from anywhere else when you play games?
- Do you feel moody, empty, and irritable if you are not able to play games for a long period of time?
- Do you find out that over time you need to play more and more games to get that feeling of happiness you normally get when you play games?
- Do you have conflicts with your family members because they think you play games too much and neglect more important matters?
- Have you ever tried to stop playing games only to find out that it is almost impossible?
If the real answer to at least 6 of these 8 questions, then you may be addicted to games. People who play games excessively and are more like game enthusiasts do not really find it difficult to perform their responsibilities. They can keep off games if they want and though they feel happy playing games, they do not really let their passion for gaming interfere with their lives. Hypnosis can help people with gaming addiction overcome their addiction in many ways.
How hypnosis can help.
Hypnosis for gaming addiction is a state of altered consciousness. During hypnosis for gaming addiction, your mind is more open to suggestions. Conventional therapies like cognitive-behavioral therapy work based on good communication and psychology techniques of which suggestions play an important role. Some techniques in hypnosis for gaming addiction can help you cope with and eventually overcome gaming addiction. Relaxation makes people calmer and more open to suggestions. For example, it is easier to give a bit of advice to your wife when she is more relaxed than when she is upset about a lot of things. A hypnotist may create images of a safe and serene environment in the minds of patients to make them feel more relaxed and comfortable. Ego-strengthening techniques can be used to improve the patient’s self-confidence. One reason why game addicts and other addicts choose not to do anything about their addiction is that they lack self-confidence. They are not sure they will succeed as they may have tried before and failed. Ego-strengthening techniques can help boost self-confidence and self-esteem and help them overcome that inertia when it comes to dealing with addictions. Autogenic training is especially good for game addicts having withdrawal symptoms. Just like any addiction, people addicted to games will experience mood swings and physical symptoms like trembling and palpitations when they try to stop playing games (no pun intended). Autogenic training in hypnosis makes them aware of these symptoms and helps them control these uncomfortable symptoms more scientifically known as withdrawal symptoms. This helps them cope with any difficulty in keeping off games. Hypnosis for gaming addiction can also help you restructure your thoughts and behaviors just like cognitive behavioral therapy does. By using techniques like direct suggestions, Ericksonian hypnosis, neuro-linguistic programming, and so on, a hypnotist can change the way you think and behave when aroused. For example, instead of playing games when the craving comes, a hypnotist can redirect that craving so you end up having a chat with your spouse or taking the dog out, or even loathing the thought of playing games. It is even better when you combine hypnosis for a gaming addiction with other forms of psychotherapy like cognitive behavioral therapy because hypnosis can reduce resistance to treatment if you are highly hypnotized. Some of the techniques we have mentioned are also in line with other psychotherapeutic methods which makes hypnosis synergistic with other methods.
