I just found this site because I have just recently come to terms with the fact that I am addicted to playing video games. I have been playing them since I was 6 years old (am now 30) and my excessive gaming has become a severe liability on my life now. I'm a father of a new son and my wife is pregnant again and due in february. She has come to not trust me anymore based on my previous habits of putting off everything else in order to play games. 2 days ago (day before thanksgiving) I deleted ALL the games off of my phone and ALL the games/save files/programs that run games off of our computers. I now find myself unable to think about anything but playing Hearthstone or VainGlory (Mobile MOBA, like a smaller version fo League of Legends) and wanting to watch videos of the upcoming releses of Overwatch and Hearthstone League of Explorers Adventure.
I recognize that my habits have already started deteriorating the things I hold most precious in my life, which are my relationships with my wife, son, and my siblings/father/friends. I want it to stop, but at the same time want to just put it all off and keep playing games. I'm struggling and just wish I could turn it off.
I'll keep poking around the website to see what I can find, and I hope this is posted in an appropriate spot.
