Today was a very hard day...

Today I was already on my way to a market to buy some new console stuff. "Prices are so low, find out if you can moderate now - bla bla bla!" it went on in my head. I had already bought my ticket for the subway train but before entering the train I turned around and went home. I'm not gaming today! Sadly I'm not feeling like a winner right now but rather down.

I wish people here would fire up the chat more often...

Not feeling like a winner--but you *are* one. Today, you turned around after you had already bought the ticket. That's a big win!

When I feel down, it's really hard for me to look at things realistically and see what good I've done, what progress I've made. Hugs.

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.

Give yourself a big hug for not getting on that train, Silverback! I agree - you did great! even if you're not feeling it s'much right now.

Acceptance. When I am disturbed, it is because a person, place, thing, or situation is unacceptable to me. I find no serenity until I accept my life as being exactly the way it is meant to be. Nothing happens in God’s world by mistake.  Acknowledge the problem, but live the solution!

Without you people from OLGA

Without you people from OLGA in the back of my head I surely had entered this train. Thank you all.

Well done mate! I can

Well done mate!

I can relate. I'm only new (sober 4 days). Been pushing myself to do the "good" things and the "right" things and it sucks. It doesn't feel awesome at the moment. Feels like things are getting worse before they will get better. I'm bracing myself for the worst withdrawal symptoms. I have confusion and fear big time. I hate when you do something "good" and you don't get the good feeling that you expect with it. I guess that will come along later. I am praying to God it will.
