Default I'm addicted, can't focus on anything else

Hey guys, so I am stuck in deep shit. I am addicted to League of Legends, I play it for like 19 hours a day, and when I fall asleep I fall asleep while playing League (usually just crash in the middle of the game). I am cutting school just to play LoL. When my parents take my Mac because I am cutting school, I just go to the library and check out a laptop for the day or go to Howie's Game Shack (chain of LAN houses in LA). I cannot focus on ANYTHING ELSE. I am writing this post mid-game.

I want to stop being addicted to LoL, but I can't. Any ideas?

Persuade your parents to ground you and take away your computer? That way, you can't play it inside or outside your house, if you're willing to give up the addiction that is.
Somehow I don't think there is some sort of games rehabilitation so that is the best advice I can think of.

Think about the pros and cons. If everyone played video games 24/7 would any of us even exist. The game isn't going anywhere and I think that's where the issue is. You feel connected to this game too much as if other things aren't important. Such as education, health, exercise and just the fact that doesn't even sound healthy. Unless your getting paid to do it, you shouldn't be playing video games that much.

The point of skipping school is where the line is drawn. Limit yourself slowly to get over this. Play an hour less everyday than you normally would. Get a timer on your phone or alarm clock or whatever and once it rings turn the game off or start to abort. You should be fine, just start slow and don't panic. Usually video game and tv addictions go away soon.

Good luck my friend.

You should talk to your family about it and they will help you if not you will have to get your parents to talk to your school and ban you from taking out a laptop but ya talk to someone about it well tahts my advice
