How can I stop taking Pokemon GO so seriously?

For example I don't want to sit somewhere to eat if there's not a Pokestop or a gym nearby, even if I feel very hungry. I try to, but I want to be the best trainer among all and show off my powered up Pokemon to others.

  • Leave your phone at home if you go out to eat. Or turn it completely off when you're going to eat. Try to break away gradually.

    • I have two phones. I bought the second one, exclusively for Pokemon GO.

    • Then don't bring that one with you. Or keep that one off when you go out to eat or go to events.

    • Use it as a phone instead of something to play a game on. Or since you have 2, just sell it or something. That way the temptation will be completely gone.

  • I'm not being mean when I say that you are an adult and have the ability to not allow a game to dictate your life. Only you can do it. If or when it really bothers you, you'll stop it. Make some friends that aren't caught up in a game running their lives. If this is your biggest problem in life, you are lucky.

    • How am I lucky?

    • Because most of us, at your age, have things going on in life that are bigger concerns and more important than not playing a game. Again, not trying to be mean, just honest.

  • Well you can start by realizing that it is pointless. No one plays pokemon go anymore. You would do a lot better to use your effort and time on one of the 3ds pokemon games. With those you might actually be able to make a living with it. Where as no one takes the go game seriously and it is a laughing matter among the serious pokemon players.

  • I assume you are my age, yes?
    Well I think there's a deeper issue here, I think you play too much cause this game is fulfilling a desire you have, could be a desire to acomplish something, maybe a desire for control, I don't know that, but you will continue escaping to this virtual reality, you need to make changes in your real life in order to quit playing games, if you unistall the game of sell your phone, this game will be replace with something else, and also it's not a bad thing to have hobbies and things that help you escape reality, it's bad when those things stop you from living a normal life

  • find another hobby, do you have job? or are you possibly still in uni or college. There are many hobbies out there, like picking up a new instrument for example. You could even discover new games which are much better than pokemon go that will not destroy you daily necessities. Ask your close friends for advice, or simply socialise more. 'hey lets go see a movie'.
