We are all on drugs


Studies have shown that the brain of a gamer is using the same pattern as an addict:

A new brain scan study shows not only can that be the case, but also that Internet addiction might cause the same brain changes that are seen in alcoholics and drug addicts.

A new study finds changes in brain regions associated with addiction in frequent video gaming teenagers. But the findings raise questions about whether such research is really relevant to the understanding of true addiction

Whether it is true or not, I see many people playing  Clash of Clans in the train. Or overhearing a conversation from a business man…..I need to check on my farm!!!! And I see him take out his tablet and playing Hayday….

A friend of mine could not resist to pay some money for some extra options in a “free” game. And I also have been weak to do something similar. But I did enjoy it at the time so where is the harm in that? Of course there is a limit within a reason

I think it is a form of addiction but the withdrawal is just not bad, we adapt easy. Sometimes people think how could we have lived without internet? Easy ! Just don’t ! You will find your adaptive skills are still there. You can use a map just as easy as a GPS…okay…with the added bickering of taking a wrong turn….it has its charms doesn’t it ? *shivers*

However the new generation has not lived without internet, what is this…map thing you talk off? That is what they say ! With the rise of technology and its speed of progress, 25 year old people already feel old. I feel ancient.

This is a kick post 🙂 I got many drafts just working on a different domain and website at the time that has not launched yet.
