I guessing tihs is the right place to post. I have an ongoing gaming addiciton to the game MapleStory. I've been playing it for 2 years now. The first year, it wasn't that hard to stop playing the game, but then I got a job so I was able to afford buying special items like clothes, pets, boosters, and other things I couldn't stop playing.
There isn't a day I'm not playing the game. The only real breaks I take from the game is when I'm in class or eatling/sleeping. I wake up, get ready for school, but not without checking out and selling things on the players' market. Im consumed with owning the most rare of items and boosting my avater's damage range and likeability that I've spent $50-$100 every two weeks on the game alone. So that's almost $2600 a year on this game alone.
My grades are suffering. I'm barely meeting the standards to graduate next month. I feel like I can't even save money for my own apartment anymore because I'm so lost that to this game now. I barely even have a social life anymore outside online interactions!
I need help. I want to go to collage and become more financially stable.
Don't Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night
