My last game

Hi all,

I've been playing games addictively on and off for the last 25-30 years. I tell myself I'm having fun when I'm playing them, but I always feel worse when I'm done.

With any luck I just played my last game. I'm getting ready to go to bed. Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of my life. I have a great job, fiance, and all around a great life. I'm active in another 12 step program, but games keep getting the best of me. It seems that I need to be active here as well.

I'm looking forward to being a part of this community.

Jack

Day 1

Today is day 1 of the rest of my life. I am determined to go without video games and enjoy my life!

welcome

Welcome Jack, glad you found us here.  I used to be in a similar situation.  I loved games, but I felt like hell after bingeing on them.  I was (and am) active in another mutual support fellowship but for years I continued to game compulsively and obsessively.

Getting active in the meetings and getting to know the other folks around here really helped.  Hope to see you around!  If you struggle with staying off the games, don't beat yourself up about it.  Come to a meeting.

Day 2

Thanks Ritchie! It's good to be back. Today was definitely a struggle. I didn't sleep very well last night. I work as a computer programmer for a large internet company. My team has been trying to get something out the door and I've spent about 14 hours so far today trying to help them do it. I suppose it's good, as I haven't had time to think about gaming. Interestingly, I have the strage feeling that the obsession has been lifted. Just posting here and reading through the other posts helps significantly.

I'm looking forward to lying my head down on the pillow tonight after another game-free day. Thanks everyone for your support :)
