Introduction -- I'm new here -- is this site currently active?

I need help quitting Game of War.  I've been playing just over two years, and it has taken over my life.  i have no friends outside of the game (I also had no friends before I started playing because of uncontrollable life circumstance).  But I do have a husband and 2 children who would like a present wife/mother, and I would like to build a real life, which I haven't had in about 14 years.  

At this point I've reduced my time in game and significantly decreased game purchases.  Now it's time to quit entirely and build a real life!  

I know it won't be easy.  It really is an addiction, so I'm seeking out help from others who have been there and may be able to help.

Welcome.  Yeah dealing with

Welcome.  Yeah dealing with addiction ain't easy.  I tried for so long to get it under control on my own.  So many times, I thought I had found the trick, turned the corner, and it seemed I was going to be okay.  Then I'd give in and binge and soon it was worse than ever.

You got the right idea seeking help, learning from others.  Don't hesitate to ask questions here or in the meetings.  Try out some of things on this list: http://www.olganon.org/forum/i-need-help-gamers-open-forum/please-read-first-how-get-help and I highly recommend the voice meetings.
