Scientists from Britain sure, the game Tetris can help people to get rid of a number of dependencies. The findings were made during the experiment with the participation of 31 volunteers from among students aged 18 to 27 years.
During this week the participants of the experiment described desires that arose from them at all times. About 30% mentioned the desire to eat or drink, 21% wanted to use alcohol, cigarettes and coffee, 16% wanted to do something that brings pleasure, for example, sports or love.
After the volunteers were asked to play three minutes of Tetris. As a result, the level of desire has fallen on average by 13%. Scientists believe that the resulting information can be used by anyone to cope with their desires.
