Hello fellow addicts. I'm here because I have a serious gaming addiction - specifically flash games. My addiction is reaching the point where I am unable to control the urge to game by myself and am worried that there will be serious consequences if I do not stop.
A little more detail about me - I am married and have a son, with a second child on the way. I am the sole income in my household, and my job is the senior software developer working on a large online project for a small company. I have recently gotten into the habit of opening a browser window to various flash games while I "work", and I am ashamed to admit that I have stolen many hours of work from my employer - to the extent that my job would be on the line if my boss knew about it.
To state what should now be obvious to everyone reading this - I need help. I need to break my addiction before it leaves me jobless or worse. I want to do what is best for my family. I want to do what is best for my employer. And I can't do it alone.
Flash game addict since 2007. OLGA member since 2016.
