Are you a Gameholic?

Adapted shamelessly from another quiz.
Oh, and by gaming in this case, if you're being particularly obtuse, I mean video and parlor games, not gambling. Gambling addiction is a serious thing. I refuse to be taken seriously.

  1. Do you lose time from work due to gaming?
  2. Is gaming making your home life unhappy?
  3. Do you game because you are shy with other people?
  4. Is your gaming affecting your reputation?
  5. Have you ever felt remorse after gaming?
  6. Have you ever got into financial difficulties as a result of gaming?
  7. Do you turn to lower companions and an inferior environment when gaming?
  8. Does your gaming make you careless of your family's welfare?
  9. Has your ambition decreased since gaming?
  10. Do you crave a game at a definite time?
  11. Do you want a game the next morning?
  12. Does gaming cause you to have difficulty in sleeping?
  13. Has your efficiency decreased since gaming?
  14. Is gaming jeopardizing your job or business?
  15. Do you game to escape from worries or trouble?
  16. Do you game alone?
  17. Have you ever had a complete loss of memory as a result of gaming?
  18. Has your physician ever treated you for gaming?
  19. Do you game to build up your self confidence?
  20. Have you ever been to a hospital or institution because of gaming?
Apparently, if you answer yes to 3 or more, you are definitely suffering a problem. Unless you're a teenager, in which case that's just life.

Friday is PSA day. I can't guarantee that the sarcasm quotient won't be very high to extreme, but you may find help here. Of course if you're looking for help here, oh boy. If you like this post you may be interested in some earlier posts like CAFFEINE WITHDRAWAL RECOGNIZED AS A DISORDER or Harsh lesson in the InterTubes. On the other hand, if you're marginally offended and vocal, feel invited to leave me a comment. It's a low cost Internet.
