This is my personal tested method. This is the way how I left my addiction to video games. I was addicted to PUBG and couldn’t stop thinking about it. In short, it was not in my control. So, if found another interactive game and started playing it instead of PUBG. Whenever I get an urge to play a video game I start a new game.

So, by the time my interest started dropping down in Pubg. And as I felt that I am not addicted to the old game anymore I stopped playing the new game. So, convince him to play some other game. And if you made him ready then there are huge chances that he will get out of game addiction.
