There are some people who are not aware that you can actually become addicted to online poker but the truth is, there have been many cases where people have developed a poker addiction and found their lives being destroyed by it. So, if you think you might be getting addicted to online poker, take a look at some of these signs and see if you can relate to any of them.
Back and Eye Pain: If you are sitting there, playing online poker and you start to notice that you are experiencing back pain, then it could easily be a sign that you have been playing it for too long and you need to get up and walk around. It is the same if your eyes start to feel tired or achy. Take some time to get some fresh air and only return to playing poker online when you feel 100%.
Not Responding to Your Name: If you find that you have become so engaged in your online poker game, that you are not responding to your name when people are talking to you, then you need to take a step back for a while. There have even been cases where people only respond to their username, which you really don't want to happen to you.
Sleep Problems and Poker Dreams: If you get in bed at night and you are unable to sleep, due to the fact that you cannot stop thinking about your online poker game, then you might want to think about having a few days away from the game, to get your sleep back to normal. Also, if you are constantly dreaming about poker when you do sleep, then you will also want to take some time off.
Forgetting to Eat and Drink: If the day goes by and you realise that you have not had anything to eat or drink, then you should definitely head to the kitchen and get some food and drink in you. Better yet, take the time to get yourself all cleaned up and go out to a restaurant to eat, so that you give yourself a breather from online poker.
Struggling to Hold a Conversation: If somebody is talking to you and you find that you can't focus or concentrate on what they are saying, because you are too busy thinking about poker, then it is a good time to have a break for a few days. We learn to be able to hold a conversation from a young age, so if you are struggling with this due to poker, then things need to change.
So, if you have been reading this article and you have found that you can actually relate to some of these things, or even just one of them, then you might want to consider taking a little bit of time away from your online poker account and to make sure that you do not develop a full blown online poker addiction.
