Hello all! Call me Red; I'm a gaming addict from the state of Oregon in the US. This year I'll be 34 years old, so that means I've spent nearly 30 years playing video games. 3 decades. For the past 7 years I've been using gaming unhealthily to escape from my difficulties in life, and eventually that meant I missed out on life itself, apart from the necessities of adulthood. It's been difficult for me to arrive at this point as I also self-medicated depression and anxiety with gaming accomplishments and activities, so cutting it out has been like cutting out my purpose for life. Today, I am proud to say I've been over 30 days without playing a single game, but it's a long road yet as I'm just now living my life with both eyes wide open and not jacked into a pixelated fantasy. Goals: Pick up any of the instruments I used to play in college and start playing.Expand my developer toolset and knowledge. Go back to school and further my education. Get physically fit.
