    I had the same issue as you in 2014, but over the years it settled down a bit. I lost passion in gaming, because it was getting boring after a while. Games like Overwatch and Call of Duty didnโ€™t make sense anymore and they got worse over time. I broke the addiction on the end of 2017. On top of that, I had more things to do in my daily life that diffused the time on playing games. Last time I really sat down and played, was 4 months ago. That time played for like 3 hours max. Iโ€™m now 16 years old and broke an expontential growing addiction in the 21st century. And I coudnโ€™t have a better life without it. Hope this helps.

    It is all in your hands. But playing games is not harmful anyway. I play games since 1994 I think. And I don't see any problem with that. No-one does anyway

    Buy a timed power strip. Some power strips you can set what time you want it to shut off whatever is plugged into it. Get one of those, plug your gaming system and tv into it. Set the time on when to shut it off.

    I think some of them have a locked feature. So when the time goes off, it can't be turned back on manual when the lock feature is activated.
