    I'm still a teenager but i'm getting interested in BH and Coding.
    I've been addicted to a few games and i keep failing to prioritize.

    You need to reprogram your mind. Download some subliminal programs or something. You also need to practice offline things, and obviously... you can continue reading BHW and you will drop those habits quickly... I guess. You can also hypnotize yourself if you have to resort that far. :)

    Don't look at this as something negative. You can turn that negative into a positive. This is nothing new but just today I read where gaming at this time of the year is big business. Use some of the blackhat tools here to create a money making niche.

    You're good at certain games? Write or sell ebooks, create a website or blog and write about the best games to buy, cheats, make hub pages, digg accounts, squidoo lens, post on social networking sites, what's the best sytem to use with certain games, make a list of forums pertaining to the games you're familiar with; the posibilities are endless, just think outside the box.

    Your love for gaming can turn into the love of making a lot of money.

    I'd say don't worry about it, unless the type of game you're addicted to is an MMO. Because that stuff sucks up way too much time. I lost a lot friends to WOW and EVE and WAR haha.

    On second thought, you can probably make some money with MMOs by using a grind bot and then selling the gold.

    Edit:

    If you wanna learn how to code, you can probably start off by learning how to create games. It's fun!

    Whats wrong with playing a video game? I'm still a teenager so I try to enjoy the free time I have while I'm still in school. I say hey, enjoy your youth and play all you want while you can. I've actually even made some money off playing games like counter strike in leagues :) If theres any CS or Dota players here, let me know!

    Addiction is a powerful tool. I was addicted to a game called revelation, a small community of players, i felt special because it is so unknown and a wonderful free game with no ads. Also a wonderful community. Problem is i got permanently banned twice (weasled out of my first permaban lol). But as soon as my dad showed me richjerk.com i was so curious i gradually got into trying to make money online, this became my new addiction. Heck, it still is. I turned an unproductive addiction into a (healthy) hustlin addiction. I want to be fucking stinking rich, and i aint ashamed of wanting that anymore, i tell everyone now, that i am trying to get richer and richer. If they say, 'oh you one of those guys who thinks hes gonna get rich quick off the internet' I go off talking about ctr, adsense, ebooks, domain forwarding, redirect, golden palace loophole, virral script, ewhoring, and some other stuff i forget to mention. That shuts them right up! People gimme respect for that cos im proud enough to say i want to better my life and im willing to whatever it takes to do that! No matter what others think. And when i show em my paypal account, well, thats just icing on the cake ^_^ people thought i was crazy... whose crazy now mother fuckers!! soon enuf i will be able to donate millions to people who need it =) i cant wait for those days... i wish my real life friends would join me in my efforts though... that would be a great help.

    Anyways! Enough of the ranting wakkaoaka you nutter!

    Set your home page to blackhatworld.com

    read blogs like blackhatzen.com

    theres so many opportunities out there to take your mind off gaming man. Wanna quit gaming? Get attached to a different community, like i did with bhw.

    Once you start making money it becomes as addictive as gaming, if not more so. Make it your game! Ive got friends that spend so much of their time reading, socializing and dreaming about wow that they would be filthy rich if they just took up making money as their "game".

    Focus on what's important - or what should be important (making money). Video games are a massive waste of time unless you have things running on autopilot. If you change your outlook to time = $$ you will find yourself reevaluating every task you undertake. Also, read here until you find an idea that sounds good and feasible and take action immediately before you forget that idea and begin browsing again.

    Best of luck to breaking your habits.

    if you are addicted to games, then use your gaming addiction to make a website about games.

    make a blog about the games you play, invite your gamer friends to the blog, place adsense, and maybe some cpas targetted to gamers. Thats not such a half bad idea. simple post pinoy, but smart nonetheless.
