A Letter On Computer Game Addiction by Tan Hao Ming

Dear (My Friend's Name),

How are you? How have you been so far? It has been so long since I write a letter to you. This time, I am writing a letter to you to inform you about the negative effects as to computer game addiction. I know that you are so addicted to computer games, you have to play them for at least 6 hours a day without stopping. I feel that this is not too good for you because when you play computer games, when you get addicted to them, what will happen is that you may get illnesses or sick.

Do you know that some people get sick and illnesses which may cause them discomfort for several weeks, and these may stretch to several months? Other than getting sick, this may also cause you to lose your temper when you are denied from playing computer games. I feel that you should spend more time with your family so that they will not feel bored. You could spend time with them by playing educational board or card games with them, or memory card games. Another way you can spend time with them is to go out to the nearby park to exercise or play sports with them, such as cycling, running, walking briskly, playing soccer.

Yours Sincerely,

Hao Ming

Internet addiction

Dear Fernando,

The last time we spoke,it was the end of last year and frankly,I am quite worried for you. I see your wall on facebook.Every post is on different games.Sometimes I even see posts at 3am. This has to stop. This addiction of yours,it is hurting yourself.I know it is so easy to get addicted but this has to stop. I wish you luck.

From,mirza

Letter By Abram

Dear (My Friend),

I have watched a couple of videos on gaming addiction during my advisory lesson. I learnt that gaming has no value and it wastes your time and your life after many years. I found out about a guy that had been gaming for 30 years and regretted for wasting almost half his life. He had wasted time to game and missed out much on life's best moments. He missed sleep, friends and even family. I really hope that you know what the right thing is and do only what is right. I will help you as much as I can and hope to see you change.

Cheers,
Abram

Letter to Ray

Dear Ray,

I would like to remind you that excessive gaming is harmful. Every time during recess/lunch or most of the time, I notice that you play minecraft most of the time. This may affect your lifestyle. Therefore, I encourage you to play moderately, and not to be obsessed with too much of games.

You also have to be more active. You should monitor your physique especially when you are about to go for NS in 5 years. You will get PWNed in NS. Wait, ignore that NS thing, okay? Gd luck with obliterating your gaming addiction.

Yours Sincerely,
Siah Wei

Computer Game Addiction Letter

Hi (Insert Name Here),


  I know, at times, computer games are alluring and makes you want to play them instead of homework. Also, facebook/twitter is also drawing you in. Yes, it is fun. But is there really a point in doing so? Even if you cannot pull yourself away, at least only do so after you do your homework.


Yours Sincerely,
 Joel

Computer Addiction

Dear brother,
Please do stop your gaming, It hurts to see you glued to the computer 5 hours a day, doing nothing but playing games. You neglect your own family, your sleep, your health. Not visiting family even on Hari Raya! I do not know what to think of you any longer, You had to retake a year of school in NUSH and lost even 3 cm in height! Be smart, You are wasting your time, Guess why I stopped playing a long time ago? I miss the old fun loving you, The one I called a brother with pride and joy, a person who always stood up for family and all. You need to start visiting again, Even family questions where you are at. I mean this with all my heart, If you start from the start, I'll accept you again.

Computer Addiction

Dear Bevan,

I am very concerned with your K-pop addiction. Every time the teacher lets you use your earphones, you always go to youtube to search for videos. This wastes a lot of valuable time and you are not able to complete the work assigned to you for that lesson. When I saw your history of the previous day. I saw that you mostly go to watch K-pop videos. You really need to need to do something about this problem.

Cheers,
Akhil.

JQ

We can make them involved in the outdoor activities more so that they do not want to go and play their computer games. After awhile, they would be addicted to playing with us instead of playing computer games :D

Dear me,

Stop Facebooking. I know that it is fun, but what's the point of Facebooking, adding friends, tagging friends? ZzZ. Well, you can blame Mark Zuckerburg for that.

Computer Addiction

Dear Anonymous,

I have recently heard of your serious obsession with video games as well as doing un-meaningful stuff online and I would really like to inform you that this addiction has to stop. Take all offense you want and cry but I seriously have to tell you that these unproductive online activity is fatal in a way and I think that you have really no life. Every hour you spend online everyday would mean another one hour less of doing fruitful and useful stuff such as homework, interaction with friends or even doing exercise everyday which would leave you stupid, jobless, have no life, have no friends and less healthy which you are. So now cry and you better curb that addiction of yours.

Regards,

A very concerned parent (Mother)

Dear, Me...

Dear Me,

Don't go and play counter strike later. I know you want to... Go and do something else. Like do your ADMT. Or do something with your mom.

Computer Addiction

Dear Charles,

I have not been in touch for you for a long time and I have been wondering why you have not been replying to me. Your Mom told me about your bad habit. Internet addiction is not good at all.

Your should stop internet addiction as it will pull you away from your real world and make you thing of ridiculous things due to your sub-consious gaming mind. I hope you do not do anything like that as you are my very good friend and I do not want to lose you.

I can help you from this. Please reply and tell me when I can meet you to tell you how badly you are reacting to others. Please let me help you. We can go out to watch a movie together, play, hand out but you have to stay away from internet addiction as it can cause much harm to me.

Your Favorite Friend,
Ronak

Game Addiction Letter

Dear Izzat,

At times, when you have free time, you will start to play games. The problem is that when you start playing the game, you will start procrastinating about doing other important things, such as doing school work. Although it may be temptation, you have to at least resist and do all our important work and complete all of it, then we can play games as a form of relaxation.

Yours Sincerely,
Izzat

Gaming addiction

Dear xxx,
I want to say that playing 3D games are not good for the health. Waiting for sms from others and facebook noctification are useless too.

Computer Addiction (CyberWellness)

Dear Jonathan,

I hope you will kick away this bad habit of chatting on your Mac while you are studying or doing your homework. This will distract you from your studies and will affect your results. If you continue this, it might get worse and so it might start to gaming addiction. I advice you to work out a schedule or timetable to plan your working and relaxing time. At least this will help you in your study planning, or maybe you can also use the time to just do more meaningful activities.

Your's Sincerely,
David

Your health and work is both more important, as well as spending time with families and friends. Please concentrate more on your work as it is for your good.

From,

Brendon
