    Fortnite Game Addiction Blamed For 200 Divorces

    Fortnite Game Addiction Blamed For 200 Divorces



    Fortnite is not just the most popular video game in the world. It seems it is also a relationship destroyer...

    Spouses are not the only ones complaining about the viral video game. It has caused problems for schools and even professional sports teams. In July, the free-to-access game passed the billion-dollar threshold through in-app sales alone, and NBA player Andre Drummond released a statement in April that he was hooked. So much so, that he said, "It took my life over."

    Health Experts: Video Game 'Fortnite' Is As Addictive As Heroin

    Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,
    Health experts have come out declaring the video game Fortnite to be just as addictive as the drug heroin. And with millions of daily active players, Fortnite Battle Royale is currently the most popular game on the globe, heightening the concerns.



    According to VGR, the Fortnite hype has taken the world over, and almost everyone has heard of it. Unfortunately, some people are addicted to this video game, and the latest report indicates that this addiction can be very harmful. It appears that there are some Fortnite players who can’t live without the game, and their addiction is even being compared to that of a heroin addiction.

    Just last month, there have been several reports about how Fortnite has ruined numerous marriages. According to a report by The New York Post, over 200 marriages have been ruined by the highly addictive video game. This time, experts are comparing Fortnite to heroin because of how bad it is, and it doesn’t seem that things are getting any better.
    “These numbers equate to roughly 5% of the 4,665 petitions we have handled since the beginning of the year,” a Divorce Online spokesperson wrote in a press release.
    It is no surprise to us that more and more people are having relationship problems because of our digital addictions.
    Health experts also state that the popular video game can “get in the way of your child’s brain development.” Further explaining what exactly happens with kids in a video game addiction situation, Fortnite gets kids’ dopamine system involved and it releases addictive chemicals. These chemicals are very similar to a drug addiction, and the game creates cravings some people can’t live without.
    “I am obsessed,” one 13-year-old gamer told The Post in March.
    “‘Fortnite’ is special. I never wanted to play so much in my life.”
    Some of the kids who were tested by health experts for a gaming addiction were teenage boys, and one of them actually admitted that he was so addicted to the game that he continued to play Fortnite while a tornado was sweeping through his neighborhood.
    In June, the World Health Organization announced that compulsive gaming has been classified as a mental health condition as well.
    Taking personal responsibility for all addictions, whether they be drug or alcohol related, or behavior, such as social media and gaming addictions is not something many are prepared to do. And as society increasingly becomes more and more dependent on technology, these types of addictions will continue to worsen.
