Although I haven't touched an MMO or FPS for the past four months, I will say I have been playing Facebook games.. yes.. face palm. But will say my partner doesn't mind that at all so long as I'm keeping to my word limiting my time playing and the amount I'm playing also only to game with family and friends we both know and if I do add people to game with, I have to run the names past him.
Which I don't mind, he has been my biggest support system in helping me break my habit. And it has not been easy on him. I love and appreciate him for sticking with me throughout it all. He still game's but major difference between him and I, I got lost in the gaming world, and I'd been gaming a lot longer than he has. He knows his limits where as I did not have any.
Ok sorry from diverting from the path of what I wanted to ask. What triggers do you all have? I know for me there are certain songs, I listen to that I used to PVE or PVP with. I honestly enjoy listening to them It does bring up found memories of certain event's in certain game's and I do smile about it. Also I have looked up old YouTube clips of Raids, castle sieges and ganking parties I was involved in.
Reliving glory days on line, I feel guilty admitting that to be honest. I do get that itch to just go back into the games and check what's changed and who's on. But reality slaps me on the face. I'd be jeopardising my relationship over it. Something I'm not willing to do
Does make things hard when I know my little sister still games and talks to me about all the old players we both used to play with. I have taken to not engage in conversation with her concerning the game or any other. I do have days where I do ask about it. But then realise what I'm doing and change the topic of conversation.
What are some of your triggers? And how do you handle them?
