I've been participating in it for far too long and when I reflect on my life, video games played a large part in harming my development.

When I was younger all I did was stay in and play video games, I did not get out and play sports, which was a big mistake. I grew up fat and the consequences of my obesity still follow me to this day as I lose weight. I was always bullied as a kid, and no one liked me because all I had to talk about was video games, and I wasn't very good at socializing. Kids were brutal to me. It taught me lessons about life.

Back to the topic, I think the whole loser/incel phenomena can be traced back to video gaming. Without question, every single incel is a video gamer or has been at some point. I think getting raised on video games as opposed to on a sports field is a major contributing factor to people becoming incels/being bullied, which are both VERY closely related. 

I'm trying to right the wrongs and make a better life for myself.

Yeah, excessively playing video games is a waste of time. You always end where you have started when you put down the controller. It's hard to find a middle ground since it's so addictive.

Going cold turkey is a tough way to break with a bad habit though. You have my sympathies.

Hard to tell what's cause and effect here. Perhaps some men just abuse video games as an escape from their shitty real life.
Videogames, just like TV series, movies, internet random BS, etc... are just some empty entertainment.
But that doesn't mean they are bad, you that just need to understand what it is and put it in perspective. Like eating some junk food or drinking in the context of a somewhat good diet and exercise.
