I look forward to my next gaming session

Hi, all! My name is Timothy. I’m new here. I am gaming addict. I’ve been a casual gamer my whole life. As a kid, I used to play the 8-bit classsics every weekend. As I got older, I learned to play more sophisticated RPGs on my Gameboy and PlayStation. Nearly all my money is geared towards my next gaming fix. It’s gotten to a point that I play even during my lunch break at work. I know that it’s out of control, and I need to stop and focus on growing my career, but I just can’t find the will. I need help. And I hope by sharing maybe I can get some help on how to get my life back on track.

welcome

Welcome Timothy.

My will to stay off games got much stronger after meeting other people in recovery from gaming addiction and hearing their stories.  Here's the link to the daily voice meetings:

And a listing of stories on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=recovery+video+gaming+addiction+stories

These helped me stop gaming and stay stopped.  My career, relationships, health, self-esteem, sleep, hobbies, friendships, mood, hygiene, home cleanliness, and energy are all much improved.  I hope you're able to accept some of the help that is available.

More resources

Going off what the others said, I would be sure to start a daily journal on gamequitters. There is a forum specifically for that, geared to help you quit this addiction. Good luck!
