WOT Blitz Addict

This is my first post  -Ive been playing this game (WOT Blitz) on and off for about 2 years, I must have spent months of my life staring at my iPhone and iPad... and I've poured some IRL money into it as well... this game has got all the regular hooks and I know they spend money on psyche research to help them exploit addiction, the whole game is set up that way! It has started to replace my social life, I often spend family time with the iPad instead of 'with my family'.

I'm glad I found this site, I was considering reinstalling the ap today after removig it this morning at 01:00. But I'm feeling rested for the first time in weeks. And I spent a lot more time with my kid today as well... I can't go back to it.

Thanks for sharing, keep

Thanks for sharing, keep coming back!

I can completely relate to what u wrote about wasting family time. During christmas i used to sneak away to my room to play games instead of hanging out with my family... how awful. There where countless of these examples where i would game instead of connect with family

If you feel you are having trouble to quit i would recommend going to meetings and getting a sponsor :)

Perhaps try to keep coming

Perhaps try to keep coming here to read the forums rather than to your game

Trying to grin and bear it alone only works for so long.  Connect with other people who are finding good ways to turn their lives around for the better.  It made a huge difference for me.
