Welcome Family and Loved Ones!

Dear family, spouses, significant others, parents, friends, loved ones, and concerned others of those affected by excessive gaming,

Welcome to OLG-Anon.

We know this is a frustrating, sad time for you, or you would not be here.  We are here so you are not alone.  We share our experience, strength and hope to help each other recover and heal from problems caused by excessive gaming.

What your heart is telling you, is right!  Excessive gaming can suck the real life out of a person and any one who has relationships with that person.  It is baffling, cunning and powerful. 

Please read the Welcome Letter that best applies to your situation. These have been written by those who have gone before you.  They contain words of encouragement and things you can do, now!
