Is chess damaging to one's mental health?

It's not a passing test it's the level I am at math and English.

@pawnmulch Yes, Tal had serious medical problems throughout his life, including some minor birth defects, and liver trouble which was likely made worse by the drinking, and multiple rounds of surgery. His drinking was not debilitating in itself.
When Tal was in the hospital during the Mar del Plata event, Fischer went to visit him (!), as did no other contestants.
Among many 'correlations' between chess and mental illness, an extreme example was David Bronstein, as detailed in Sosonko's book Rise and Fall of David Bronstein.

@ruzgar9543 I did not say one darn thing about causation or logic. What's wrong with you? Can't you have a simple conversation without turning it into a debate?
