The Gaming Addiction
Parents want the best for us. That’s why they jump through hoops to make sure we’re getting a decent education and having wonderful, fulfilling experiences. But when this Reddit user was 14 years old, they had a gaming addiction. His mother wanted to put a stop to it, so she signed him up for a group that deals with people who have gaming addictions. But it turns out, in Germany, gaming addiction can also mean gambling. So instead of putting him in a group with young kids who also spend a bit too much time on the computer, she put him in a group with old men who have a detrimental gambling addiction that ruined them, and their family’s lives. Every time he walked into that room, he wanted to disappear from the sheer cringe (via Reddit).
