My Friend and I are working on a project in school where we have to find out if you can become addicted to gaming and/or using computer. So we have been asking people around on other schools about how much time they have been using on the computer, and what they use their time on the computer on. We have also been asking about how much money they use on the computer. And according to our questionnaire
53% of the 11-13years (asked 53) use 0-2 hours in front of a laptop or computer, but 49% use those 0-2 hours to game, but 37% is using gaming is just to kill time, and 70% use around 0-500kr (Danish krone) on their computer
52% of the 16-18years old (asked 21) use around 0-2 hours on the computer 58% use it to chat on people, 39% do also use the computer to socialize with other people, and 95% use around 0-500kr
91% of the people around 20-65 (only asked 11) use 0-2 hours. 66% use their computer on other stuff then what we asked. 57% use their computer to read news and that kind of stuff. 73% use around 0-500kr
We also tried to get some expert view on it but we couldn’t find any so we read some articles where we read about what expert means about this. According to our research if you game more than 30 hours a week you may be in the danger zone where you are close to become addicted when you become addicted you may develop some symptoms close to gambling addiction, on a side not we read that people who game is less like to get stressed and they drink less alcohol but are more or less in the same shape like normal people who don’t game.
And the reason I’m writing this is because we would like you guys/girls to write what you mean about our project.
