My Little Addiction
Its almost 3am , I reach over for my phone eager to see if the troops and ready for battle. It seems I have become an addict to this fad of clash of clans. Its been about two weeks and I honestly think I've spent over 120hrs of my precious life trying to gain victories that hold no true value but then again not everything in life can hold value, right?
I had dismissed the game for long enough but due to a recent turn of events I found myself perusing apps on the Google play store and I thought to myself, why not give it a try, I had nothing to lose anyway. This has only equated to me spending countless hours watching timers count down so I can unlock more troops or gain elixir and gold much faster.
This got me thinking on the way we start to develop addictions, I once read that it takes 21 days to either acquire an addiction or break from one (don't take my word for it). I am yet to reach that day 21 but it is my belief that my fascination with this game compares to a new sound track that I will listen to over and over until it'll just stop being fun (I hope).
I'm starting to regret downloading that game but I know like cake, all good things must come to an end(Big fan of cake, big fan). So as I begin this new week I will try to slowly wean myself off the game by setting constructions that last more than 12 hours lol.
In conclusion ,if you're looking for something to pass the time and you don't mind a little addiction then to you I say play, play to your hearts content and I will see you on the flip side. Just SayinG
