Hey  - good luck!  Same

Hey - good luck! Same deal here. It is a struggle. Hang in there - take simple practical steps. NOT a way to deal with stress, I've learned that, and have to keep learning that, and even reading your note helps. You can do it. All the best!

Hugs, Tam.  It's not that

Hugs, Tam. It's not that you can't game, it's that you can't game and have a life worth having at the same time. I hope you make the choice that will help you be happy in the end, and it sounds like you want to make it, which is nice. Hugs again...

Be strong, Tam! Hugs for you. To relieve stress you can walk out, do physical activities (possibly outside your home), call a friend to talk with her/him. Interaction with others can help you overcoming the desire.

But if you really feel you can't resist, maybe you can do like I did: put yourself in a condition in which playing is impossible. I brought all my consoles and my computer to an unreachable safe place, so even if I want to play, I just can't, and I can't do anything about it. So I have to stand it. Hope I was helpful even just a little bit.

Definitely stopped playing on May 22, 2014.

One day, or one hour, at a time! Hugs Tam, hang in there & keep praying.

thanks for your support

thanks for your support guys, I was feeling overwhelmed and so I came to OLGA and posted. Then I went to the Chat meeting and then I had a good talk to my sponsor. I still feel a bit vulnerable but also a little better now. Tonight I will go to my local f2f GA group as well.

Please God help me stay away from games today.

Just for today.
