As awareness increases, the need for personal secrecy almost proportionately decreases.
We hang onto secrets when we're unsure of ourselves and the role we're asked to play--secrets about our inner thoughts, our dreams and aspirations, our feared inadequacies.

I thought up a plan.
I will be able to do business and banking and even hmm xxxx some music.
My son will be the admin of my comp. I will have him block the Internet after 11 at night. He will surely think of places I would be wise not to surf.

This thread actually says that ppl are dreaming about playing Age of Empires! I played that game a lot when I was younger but I don't think I actually dreamt about the game.

As a gamer myself, I want to say thank you to all who have shared their stories. They are poignant reflections of the damage that gaming can cause in our lives when we can't stop.

Once in a while a post from one of you brilliant people will catch my eye as this one did from one of our new visitors named 'Squeakie.' I thought I would cut and paste it here. Thank you, Debbie - I hope you don't mind me 'sticking' you out in the open

When we are locked within negative, hostile thinking patterns, we go around in mental circles. What seems perfectly rational to us at the time looks misguided and blind when we look back. Carrying a grudge or a desire to get even with someone is a cancer inside us. It belittles us and holds back our spirit.
