Over the last few years we’ve noticed an alarming trend in video game addiction.
It’s on the rise.
While video games have been around for a long time, the more addictive mobile gaming and loot box filled world of today’s gamer is causing an explosion in people seeking help. But, what can you do?
Is video game addiction really a thing?
The answer is a resounding YES! A few months back we read some pretty alarming statistics on the video game industry and that got us thinking. We knew we had to do something.
That’s when we started wondering if the Sobriety Success method could work for people. We spent a few months researching and collating our feedback before developing a course.
After launching the course on our usual Udemy course we were blown away by the feedback and reviews. We honestly weren’t sure if we were on the right path when we started but this led us to believe we were on to something.
Here’s what just one reviewer thought of the course:
Now, we knew that just copying and pasting a Sobriety Success course that was built for more traditional recovery or addiction wouldn’t work. That’s why, for this course, I’m the main instructor and not Denise.
We structured the course in a very familiar manner however. Here’s the modules within the course that we think are incredibly important:
Section 1 – Introduction
By the end of this section, students will firmly grasp exactly what they will be doing throughout the course. We’ll a short assignment to help stimulate thought processes around video game addiction. Additionally, we’ll talk about the technological things students will need to implement.
Section 2 – Preparing to Quit Video Games
Preparing to quit video games is all about the preparation work that students need to put in before actually quitting. Preparation is absolutely paramount to success. Included subject areas are; scientific impact of video game addiction, logging your time, the pomodoro technique, nutrition, sleep, exercise and more!
Section 3 – Taking Action
Just like it sounds, Taking Action is all about taking action! We’re going to be walking students through the exact steps and actions they need to take in order to quit their video game addiction.
Section 4 – Relapse and Relapse Prevention
As with all addictions, the difficulty of relapse cannot be ignored. We’ll dive deep into how to work through a relapse and hopefully prevent relapses after breaking free from your video game addiction.
Section 5 – Conclusion and Wrap Up
Our course ends with a brief wrap up reminding you of the long term benefits of quitting video game addiction.
The course delivers just over an hour of action packed advice, support and strategies to help students through their goals.
