Folks, this essay (below) is powerful. He's an addict, I'm an addict, I get it. This is why we need each other. This is why we will need each other every day forever. (I think this may have been posted on the site before, but I just came across it and finally read it.)
If you are an addict, read this because it's about us. If you aren't, read this because it's about people you know and love.
So today, I won't game. I'll talk to other addicts. I'll stay on this planet that I don't really like. I'll ask for help when I need it and I'll offer help freely to my people. Today, I will try to live the life that the Higher Power would have me to live. I will fail to do it perfectly, and I accept that. I will then get up, admit my mistakes and start over tomorrow.
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.
