Hi all, I have had a long-standing problem with gaming, from World of Warcraft, to League of Legends, and then to Hearthstone, and now to Overwatch. I have spent many, many months of game time among those. Choosing League over my girlfriend was a huge contributing factor to our breakup in 2013, as well as missing many opportunities at school and not making it into the school I would like to go to. I also chose gaming over my involvement in theatre. I fell out of that around the same time I lost my girlfriend back in 2013. My social life is pretty much limited to gaming friends. I also think I manipulated the new job I got to get off an extra week to relax and game, which ended up almost in me losing out on the opportunity. Now, I have depression, and I can't seem to face my true emotions, and instead choose gaming to numb them. I'm hoping I can quit gaming to start me on a path to rebuild my social life and career.
Thank you for reading
