I have played games for most of my days growing up and when on my own in the Marines I basically spent any time I wasn't working was spent playing games. My time was split between WoW and Call of Duty. It wasn't interfering with anything then but with playing so much I had no other activities I was interested in and this has been true up to now. I have been out of the Marines for 5 years now and I have stopped playing as much as I used to but now the problem is that I play during my shift at work and put in about 8 hours during a 12 hour shift of playing on some days and it has caused my performance to be a problem and can cause me to lose my job. I have trouble staying away from playing games or thinking about them at work and need help with getting away from this so that it stops affecting my work. I have stopped playing for about three months on my own but ended up starting again and it is worse now than it was before. I'm worried that if I keep playing or even start again that it can cause me to lose my job. Any and all advice is welcome for help.
