Gaming addiction—gone!

Originally appeared online in the teen series: Trending - February 25, 2021. 

The teacher was talking, but what was I doing? I had my computer sitting open in front of me during English class and was trying to level up in my favorite game. I couldn’t help playing; I was addicted.

At first it seemed fun. But soon my teachers caught on, and I started getting in trouble. That’s when I realized something had to change.

From the time I was a little kid in the Christian Science Sunday School, I’ve learned I can always ask God for help with anything; I’ve also learned how to pray so that I get answers and find healing. But at first, the thought of praying about this addiction felt like a joke. It seemed so silly to pray about gaming.
