Hello, Is this community still open or has it dwindle to much?
It's open :)
God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it's me. ~Author Unknown
Hi, EL. Welcome to the fellowship of recovering gaming addicts. Here are the things that helped me when I came here:
1. Post my story and read other people's stories and respond.
2. I went to a lot of meetings. You can find meetings by looking under the Meeting tab.
3. I made connections with other people--got phone numbers, skype info, etc. I talked with people one-on-one a lot. It's a way to really get good support.
4. I got a sponsor and worked the steps.
There are many other things that can be helpful and you'll find them if you read around in the forums. See you at the meeting.
I am a recovering computer game and gambling addict. My recovery birthday: On May 6, 2012 I quit games and began working a program of recovery through OLGA No computer games or slot games for me since December 12, 2012. No solitaire games with real cards since June 2013.
Hey Polga and Dan1, thanks for the responses.
I'm currently at work but I hope to be able to add some more information later this afternoon, or if I get a chance.
This place is extremely active and riddled with a wealth of information and helpful people. Keep coming back and you'll undoubtedly be swamped with help at any given time... as long as you ask for it.
It's time to make up for lost time!
Game free since May 20, 2013.
We are very busy and active! Need help!!!
