It's been a few days now..going through the darn withdrawals again, but I feel better this time, stronger. I saw what a waste of time it was...and said my proper goodbyes.
I also started therapy for some issues that happened ingame and in rl..I see that I need to do that...feeling scared, but better.
I wrote yesterday, today and worked in my yard..solid, positive things that I can see.:)
I'm facing my "avoidance" of the internet as well...I think that figured into the relapse..I was trying so hard to just squish it ALL out..(okay, a grown woman saying squish..but squishing doesn't work).
...working on balance.:)
Played two years at an MMO, started as an hour here, or there, ended with me being there 10 hours a day. Became overly involved in a "game-relationship" that started carrying over into my RL and caused many, MANY, problems. Also stopped contact with "game-friends" because of their own game-addictions. Game-free since Sept. 2013.
Starting to feel much better and the withdrawal symptoms are lessening. I have limited myself to two days online a week, for only two hours, until I'm six months into my recovery. Then a third day. Thank you for this site.:)
