The results revealed that there was significant difference between young and middle-aged woman candy crush gamers with respect to leisure boredom and loneliness (p<0.05). There was a negative correlation between leisure boredom and self-control among young women candy crush gamers (p<0.05). There was a significant relationship between leisure boredom and loneliness among the middle-aged women candy crush gamers (p<0.01). It was also found that there was significant relationship between loneliness and self-control among the middle-aged women candy crush gamers (p<0.05).
