"[Gaming] goes into my sleep zone … I was working five days a week doing 10-hour days and I’d probably be getting four hour’s sleep at the most every night.  So, yeah I was on the high spectrum of gaming."

"The gaming problem is an end point result of a whole range of underlying conflicts and it does take a lot of time to tease that all out, but I think on balance, it’s a good step that it’s recognised as a disorder because a lot of parents and families are often, frankly, quite desperate for help."
