Thanx bro, a few days ago I entered an online gaming site to take some images for a board game I built, I wasn't really into playing it still I feel that since I watched a video game screen maybe my 3 months are nullified?? What is your opinion?

I did it guys 3 months completed woohoo! Now what?

I didn't believe that I would feel an urge to play ever again but after my goal was completed I did. Hmm that is funny maybe I have trained myself to catch goals so my brain reacts from the stillness and quiet, who knows..

Wookieshark I have read some of your journal parts, you are an inspiration my friend! I feel proud on your behalf

I'm feeling like a new person these days.  It's been over five months since I last played any games and they're mostly out of my mind.  Once in a while I get the urge to play one particular game, but that feeling passes within a minute or two.  Part of that is because that game has things in it that are relevant to my studies so I am reminded of it.

A big thing for me is that I sold some of my old video games including my very first video game I got as a seven year old.  It wasn't as hard as I expected it to be, and I was actually happy that somebody would use it that doesn't have any problem with video game addiction.  I plan on selling all of the games that I can.  My plan is to catalog all the games I have once this semester is done and post it on my company's classified forum.  All the proceeds will go straight into my daughter's college fund so I feel really good about it from that standpoint too.

I feel at peace with my video game past.  I've been able to talk to people in person about it which is huge for me because I always tried to be secretive about my gaming problem.  I put a game quitters sticker on my computer too and always share what it means when people ask.  My mind is more focused, I enjoy all of the little things I would have ignored in the past, and I experience things without the distraction of my mind wanting to game

I feel free now that I don't have that secret to guard.  Sharing my journey to freedom is a great feeling, and trying to help others with their struggles is so fulfilling.  I have a feeling of gratefulness that comes to the forefront of my mind every single day.

I still have struggles in my life, but they are so much more manageable.  Video games no longer fuel my senses of shame, anxiety, depression, or isolation.  I am so much more effective with dealing with these problems these days.

I feel like I want to give back to this cause that has freed me from my addiction.  I was considering donating to NPR, but after all that I have receive here I decided that I wanted to back this cause instead.  I journal every day because it has helped fuel positive changes in my life, because I want anybody who looks at it to see what a journey to freedom can look like, and because I want to help this site grow.  When I started here it wasn't the most active forum I have ever seen, but I could see that Cam was onto something big, and I needed to become a part of it.
