They make lame excuses like they don’t feel hungry, or they don’t like food, etc. Lack of eating means continuously increase in bad health.
You start Isolating
A game addict just loves to play games and for games, they lock themselves into their small world which consists of their computer, their room and themselves. They isolate themselves this much that they never wanted to meet anyone and by this, their social skills get destroyed. They cannot interact with any person because they don’t know how to communicate.
