From telegraph.co.uk:
[QUOTE]
As many as one in 30 computer game players have symptoms similar to those of gambling and drug addicts, psychologists claim.
A study of nearly 400 "gamers" found three percent missed meals and went without sleep to spend more time playing.

They suffered withdrawal symptoms and were found to be more introverted, emotionally unstable and have lower self-esteem. Psychologists at the British Psychological Society conference in Dublin said gaming addicts had personality traits similar to Asperger's syndrome, a type of autism. affraid
