I've been addicted to games for years, and it's only gotten worse since the depression hit (since i used it as escape), Now i quit (compeltely by my myself), and have been clean for a month now. Everything has taken a turn for the better since i quit, both with my mental health and my addiction recovery.
I'd love to have somewhere where i can talk to people going through the same thing since there isn't very much help out there for this. Howver I have a lot of experience with addiction outside of video games too. My best friend was a drug addict, I went to many 12 step meetings with him so i know all about the 12 steps.
What i'm trying to say is, i want people to talk to to, but I A) don't believe in the 12 steps, because i'm not religious. I have a philosphy on life already that has served me well, and has helped me stay clean. Also B) i've read through some of the forum posts here, and many people seem to think video games are inheirently bad. I totally disagree, I think anything can be a addiction, that doesn't mean the thing it's self is bad. I know many people who play games and maintain normal, healthy lives.
I'm not here to argue, i'm just wondering if i will still be able to find help on this site with all that in mind? what do you guys think?
EDIT: i read your guys 12 step forum, i might be able to do this! I like that it's no strictly religious like other 12 step programs i have been to! So that part is kinda answered already. if you want to add anything please do!
