The Primal Happiness Show

This week's show is with Cam Adair, a Speaker, YouTuber, and Founder of GameQuitters.com, the world’s largest support community for video game addiction, serving 25,000 members a month in 80 countries around the world. Born in Canada, he currently lives in San Diego, California.

In today’s show we spoke our digital/tech addiction - almost all of us are somewhere on that spectrum. We talked about why we've ended up this way and what we can do about it.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  • Almost all of us are somewhere on this spectrum of digital addiction - whether it's full on gaming addiction or just checking facebook a zillion times a day.
  • We do this because we're trying to meet four very human needs: Temporary Escape, Social Connection, Constant Measurable Growth, Challenge (Sense of Purpose)
  • Coming from a non-judgmental place allows for change and choices. Whether it's ourselves or others with an addiction, stopping to understand WHY this behaviour is happening allows us to make different choices, more in alignment with our values and vision.
