Starting from another day

I cant leave the game today. Why? I keep telling myself that I will do it starting from the 1st of January and it doesnt happen, or on Monday because, you know, it is the first day of the week and... it doesnt happen. Why do I enjoy gaming and hate it at the same time? I want to leave this vicious circle once and for all. Maybe it is too late...

Nothing is impossible. Thats only if you believe it.

Welcome Dave

Welcome Dave

I'm glad you've found us at OLGA. I recommend you keep coming back to check out the info on this site such as the sticky posts in the blue area at the top of this forum, so that is can help you to prepare for quitting games.

What I find positive is that you are looking to find a way out; you are on step one of the process. That is a big step and realisation in itself. I have heard stories from addicts that have spent years wanting to quit after having realised that the games need to go, in a similar position to you now. And they have gone on to become game free and happy in their real life. So don't lose heart!

Welcome Dave.  I could have

Welcome Dave.  I could have written the same thing some months ago.  I loved it and hated it and was stuck in a vicious cycle.  I too kept setting new dates for quitting, and then blowing past them, or only sticking to it for a day or two before deciding, what the hell, may as well game today and go back to quitting tomorrow.

After years of struggle, I thought I'd be stuck like this forever.  But that was just my Addict Brain telling me to give up all hope and just game my brains out.  The reality is that people like us can and do stop gaming, by taking it one day at a time and supporting each other in meetings.  I hope to see you at one soon.  You'll meet many friendly supportive people.

Thank you Ritchy. I decided

Thank you Ritchy. I decided today to quit gaming once and for all. I need to take it one day at a time for now but it is so difficult to think clear and not to give in. This is not an easy feat since I gamed for like, 15 years or so but I hope I can do it.
