“I fell hook, line and sinker for this mobile game, and lost £100 in the process”

My name’s Kayleigh, and I’m addicted to mobile gaming.”

As a rule, I like to consider myself a sensible person. Sure, I have a silly side – one which usually makes itself known via my penchant for dinosaur print shirts, Jim Henson movies and haphazard approach to baking – but I keep a level head where it matters. I always aim for five fruit-and-veg portions a day, rarely splurge on something I don’t need, and never ever try to rescue hot cross buns from the toaster using a knife (not without switching it off at the plug first, anyway).
I know why I’ve fallen hook, line and sinker for Choices, of course: playing games breaks the cycle of attention and gives the brain better things to do than focus on potential (not real) outcomes. And, even if we feel anxious while playing a game, we become too preoccupied to imagine the worst. Which is, you know, ideal for these Covid-19 times.
