New and need Help

Hiya I'm new here and well my Local GP referred me to yourselves.

My story of my addiction started around since 2011 heard of a game called Monster Warlord and started playing it at first it was fun and noticed you could buy stuff it allowed me to get top 10 ranks on rankings for a week then noticed I had a £300 bill on my mobile phone bill. So paid it off and kept it hidden from my family but the spending slowly increase over the years. Now to date I've spent over £10,000+ and have gone cold turkey but recently spent £30 last week and worried I'd lose myself to spending on game again. I am also in debt of £1300 but I am paying it off. Any support would be great.

Welcome Edot

Welcome Edot

Here is a link to a helpful thread to get you going with this website and your recovery.

http://www.olganon.org/forum/i-need-help-gamers-open-forum/please-read-first-how-get-help

I would recomend you keep coming back to this site every time you would otherwise  game, and read about the experience of others. You will see that you are not alone with this and you can change.

Thanks for sharing your story with us and keep coming back. I'm glad you are here and somewhat amazed and pleased that a GP recommended you come here ! Good on him/her.

Keep coming back and connect with others like yourself through meetings and the accountability thread. This site and the meetings are aimed at people who cannot moderate gaming and are looking to give up because they are starting to realise that abstaining may be their only option to have a real life.

All the best to you.

relax

It might help to go for a small holiday and leave your computer and phone at home. try to spend time in nature and maybe with someone you feel comfortable with.
