This thread if for light-hearted suggestions to managing Go Addiction. If you have a serious suggestion, please add it here: Managing Go Addiction - (serious)
To the best of my knowledge, the only cure for Go Addiction was invented by Joseph-Ignace Guillotine:
Given the serious side effects any other light-hearted options would be welcome.
Play AlphaGo day and night until you drop.
Find a girlfriend/boyfriend who doesn’t play go.
Clearly the only solution is to quit all other responsibilities and go pro.
I know many people for whom this has been completely ineffectual.
I’m not convinced this would be sufficient. Can you link to any peer reviewed studies that have compared the post guillotine go addictions to those people who only received a placebo guillotine?
I suppose we could devote a separate thread to a discussion of how exactly a placebo guillotine might work. A delightful word pairing, probably unprecedented. Well done!
i reviewed one of my own games —> insta-cured
Just listen to Dan players complain about how bad they are at the game haha
You know you’re a Go addict when someone says OG and you think OGS instead of Original Gangster.
@wind_water I suspect you were looking for this thread but that’s cool.
