My name is Alex and I'm addicted to gaming.
My story started in 2002 when I was 14. I got hooked on Asheron's call with a friend. I don't want to get too much into the game-a-log. My social skills immediately stopped improving and I became ineffective at personal relationships. My gaming career went from Asheron's call > WoW > Eve Online > other online games. I continued to form ineffective personal relationships. The social ineptitude continued, substances became a part of my story. In 2009, I hurt myself pretty bad and the state almost put me away indefinitely. My grandmother has been begging me to stop playing video games my whole life. I could never admit to myself that playing video games was my main problem because I took ADD medication that kept me up all night playing them. I was a total zombie. I completely neglected my partner of 6 years and wife of two. I don't know what to do with myself or my personal relationships.. Insanity is to want to fire up a video game while typing this knowing that I could spend 5+ hours a day on a work day playing. This year, March, I joined Alcoholics Anonymous as a remedy for my substance abuse problem. I have had good success at that fellowship and I need help quitting games.
:I think game addiction has led to my doing my best to ruin my entire life. It wants me dead. But I know today that it's a only a symptom of a spiritual malady that wants me dead. I'm here to stop gaming and help others to recover from game addiction.
