Do you like sports? You could follow your favorite team, or collect cards in your spare time.

Find something else that you like to do, and then while you do something else that you like to do, it will take your mind off of video games for a while. You don't have to stop playing video games, just try to think of other things you like to do once in a while. If it helps, make a list of your favorite hobbies:)

Do you have a GPS? Go geocaching which is a form of treasure hunting. A quick search shows there are 637 geocaches within 10 miles of your Zip Code on your profile.

geocaching.com. A basic account if free.

If you're over 18 join a health club/gym and star working out. Trust me you won't regret it later in life.

depends on how much u want to cut back. im a big gamer but i also watch tv, do personal projects, or find other things i like to do and it keeps me away from games so i would suggest those things... but why would you want to cut back on gaming?

Take interest in something new by studying a new subject that you like and turn it into a hobby. Spend your time researching this hobby. When we get excited about things we are more likely to do them.

Honestly, I play video games everyday and I can't find a single way to stop. The only way I don't play is if none of the consoles are plugged in because i'm too much of a lazy bum to plug everything back in.
