2 Years Game Free

Today. Two years ago, I had my relapse. That was the last time I said to myself "just one more game." Since then, no electronic games of any kind.

All credit goes to power greater than myself, the biggest source of which for me is the fellowship of recovering gaming addicts--my alien family. Thank you for giving me my life. Thank you for giving me the last two years--two years where I've made countless friends, supported others and been supported myself, started back to school, and gained a huge measure of inner peace and a huge pile of hope. Thank you to each one who shared your struggles of addictive gaming with me, for your generosity, for your love. 730 game-free days, and hoping for many more. A real life. Hugs to all my people.

And thanks to Liz, for creating this website where we can meet and begin to help each other heal.

I am a recovering computer game and gambling addict. My recovery birthday: On May 6, 2012 I quit games and began working a program of recovery through OLGA No computer games or slot games for me since December 12, 2012. No solitaire games with real cards since June 2013.

Congratulations dan1! Thank

Congratulations dan1! Thank you for sharing the wonderful news with a hearth warming message!

You may or may not realize but you have been a great help to me. I have learned so much from the you tube videos, radio programs and articles you recommended on this site as well as from your replies to my messages when I was desperate. My son is now on-line game free for over a year and game free for more than 6 months. We owe this progress to this site, my OLGA family and a great fellowship here.

Hope you keep coming back and continue helping others who are in desperate need....

Hugs back to you!

Really wonderful to have you

Really wonderful to have you in my life. Especially back when we were in Olga together and remember when you stuck up for me when the Admins wanted to ban me for a whole month!!?

And congratulations friend.
