OLGA Reflections

As I've been going to face-to-face meetings, I've noticed that each group has their own literature, which stems from the addiction and recovery experiences of the members. I has occurred to me that it would be good for OLGA to have our own literature. Some work has begun on this.

What I'm wanting to do is create some short "daily reflections" pieces based on the experiences of recovering gaming addicts. What I've done is taken a chat meeting topic and written a reflection inspired by some of the commonalities in the shares at the meeting. The idea is that it's really about us and our experiences, not translated from AA or NA or another fellowship. That literature is good, but I'd like to have some that's specficially for us (and from us). There are no specifics or direct quotes; just a general sense of what this topic means for recovering gamers.

I've written a couple of these so far and I'll post them. Please put comments on the overall idea here, and comments on the specific reflections on those threads. Thanks for your feedback.

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.

I definitely like the idea. The AA and NA stuff that I've seen has been both good and helpful, but I definitely like the idea of doing something closer to "home". Thanks for starting this...

I agree! Great idea!

I agree! Great idea!

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!
