Dear Surgeon General,
Hello, my name is Leo Freidhofer. I'm hooked on video games. I tried to quit lots of times, but I couldn't. I tried by just buying the table-top Pac-Man, but that wasn't enough. The video games are almost everywhere! When I see one I just have to play it. I hate them! They just eat up my money. My father just doesn't understand what I'm going through. I think nobody does who isn't on video games. It's just ripping me and my father apart, and my mother a bit. My mother and sister smoke, but I don't. I liked Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and lots of others. Now I'm hooked on Zaxxon (It's a 3-D video game). Please help me! I also like computers. I want to buy an Atari 800 or Colecovision in the near future. This is the first time I told anybody this. If you have any helpful hints, can you tell me?
Truly Yours,
Leo Freihofer
