I've been a gaming addict for over 20 years, which is sad because I'm going to be 28 in June. I've never had any real friends. I spend every waking moment of my life playing games or thinking about games or spending money on games. My family deserves better: a husband and father who spends time with them and cares for their needs. I have ADHD is well, so I can't just play one game for a while and wait until my stamina recovers, I have to move through dozens of games to keep myself constantly occupied. The worst part is I feel more responsibility to the game community than I do to my own family. I've wasted so much time, effort, and money that could have been spent playing with my children and teaching them. I feel physically sick when I think about never gaming again, but I just can't control myself when I play. It has to stop. Someone, anyone, please help me!
The things I counted once for gain now I count for loss.
