Hey, Alan. It's nothing to be embarrassed about--you're certainly not the first person to have a problem playing video games. First, though, are you positive it's an addiction? If it's interfering with your life and you're placing too much importance on the games themselves, then it could be an addiction. Have you tried talking to someone about this? That could be your parents, a counselor at school, or a religious figure (such as a pastor). They could help you identify why you want to play video games so often and what steps you can take to cut down on your time playing games. For the time being, however, my advice would be to find other hobbies that you like or try new things--anything to expand your horizons, so to speak. Hang out with your friends and get out of the house as much as possible. Playing a sport could also be a possibility, as could be joining a club. I hope this helps and you can PM me anytime.
