#39 Develop an addiction to candy crush saga


I have always, generally speaking, avoided video games. The reason for this is that once I start playing I usually can’t stop.

During my wife’s recent stay in hospital, she passed quite a lot of the time playing candy crush saga and when I got bored of rewriting my second novel I played a bit as well. It didn’t affect me much until the moment when the phone told me I was banned from playing candy crush for half an hour. As soon as so became aware of the possibility that I might not be allowed to play candy crush, this ignited a desire within me to play  the game which outweighed any other desire. I now wanted to play candy crush more than anything in the world and twenty nine minutes later I found myself counting down the seconds before my next go.

Every time I failed the clear a level, the desire to play became greater until yesterday, I found myself not meeting my daily word count because I was too busy playing the Damn game.

Today, I had to be really disciplined to meet my word count, finish editing my second novel, breach my Mail Chimp agreement and write a couple of blog posts before opening candy crush.

Now that is all done I can get back to playing the game again. If you have recieve a request from me to donate me additional goes at candy crush please ignore it. (I don’t mean that).
