How to cure addiction?

Yes, in real life, I failed, but it's hard to change when you're not ready for anything. My family was noble. I had everything, all the opportunities, all the doors opened, but I played video games every time. I never spent a single minute to do my homework. With low grades in high school, my father took me away from English, Dutch, and sports courses. I missed opportunities to learn programming in good computer courses, one of them on Facebook. If I had always focused, it would be totally different. I know there is no point in thinking about this in the past but it is quite impossible to fight in the present. I was studying Japanese and a discouragement made me give up. For weeks I have done nothing but cell phone. I wanted to stop but it is the only thing that gives a little pleasure. A year ago I fought with my father and family and my world collapsed. I don't feel like a real man, just some loser who admires other great men like napoleon etc. but accepts his own insignificance and remains inert for his life. But the worst is that I know what I have to do, but I don't do it

    If you're talking about drug addiction, I have advice from experts in my answers. SMARTRecovery.org is like a brainy version of Narcotics Anonymous - ex-addicts who believe in psychology.

    You need to take control of your own life.  You mentioned you like computers.  Go to college and study IT or even computer graphics.  Move out, get a job.  It's better than asking random strangers on the internet for advice.
