2 months - 60 days Hooray!

Hello,

Happy Birthday to me.

KCB - Keep Coming Back

It works if you work it.

Less important to me than for those still gaming or who have only recently quit. It is possible to quit gaming. And yes the obsession will eventually lift. And yes it does get better.

Otherwise - not much to report. Still dont have a job. It is Monday! But the sun is shinning at the moment, and it is a bit above freezing. And I had no compulsion to game today.

One small miracle at a time.

Yes, one small miracle--or maybe not so small!

One thing at a time...one step at a time...

All the best,

Congrats on 2 months!!!!!

The question is....will you be able/courageous/adult enough to sacrifice that which merely pleases you...for that which will truly fulfill you? That is the question of personal growth.

dark ~ Congratulations!

It is an accomplishment that has a certain REAL feel, taste, touch,

and fragrance. I was given this link today and found it useful.

I am sending it on to those I know that are in the midst of

struggling with demons of one kind or another:

I am so glad that you are participating here. I do not think that

there are many Ex-Second Lifers here. Reading your posts helped

me to make my decision. You are an inspiration to me!

Serena, I just wanted to say that we are glad you are here. We have folks who played MMOs like EverQuest, WoW, as well as games like Second Life, and folks who got addicted to FaceBook games as well as iPhone apps.

Feeling grateful for all you folks tonight!
