I've been addicted for quite a few years now I'm 33 and used to play games since a kid.
I stopped for a few years over uni and had a good social life then.
A few years after uni i got back into games and for a few years it was online poker and gambling not gaming. Managed to stop gambling and got back into games.
Been a serious game addict again for a few years now.
Tried CBT again last month or whenever for 6 weeks.
Started to do Pilates, gym classes and want to start guitar again. Trying to do meditation and cooking also but think I still need more activities.
On top of all this i have a more serious mental health problem underlying that I've been diagnosed with both schizophrenia and anxiety and also had a diagnosis of mild dyspraxia as a child. Take medication but sometimes do forget it accidentally.
