  1. I am moderately gaming now. I am in a relationship with an amazing woman that loves me. She loves me as a sinner and as a saint. I don’t let my hobbies interfere with my relationship or work or health. You can get so engrossed in anything that you’re not self aware. If you’re not taking care of you then you can’t love anyone else right either. Someone here needs to go back and read my story. It does get better. You can do this. Others are here to help you. You are not alone.
  2. Post 90 Day Detox Notes How did I succeed on the cusp of such a great personal trial? 1.) Removing all games from my immediate vicinity. 2.) Choosing to take opportunities to advance at work. 3.) Making time to engage people whether on this forum, on the phone, or publicly. 4.) Experiences like travel, reading, working out or whatever. Replacing time spent on games with other activities. 5.) Reflection through prayer, solitude, and quietness. Basically, learning to embrace being alone to some degree. Thank you @Cam Adair and everyone else for this forum an
  3. Day 90 - Friends... Made it. If I can then anyone can. Go back and read why/how/etc etc. I will try to give a better update later. It is doable. You can too!
  4. Day 89 - Game free. Well, I’ve been out of town for work a lot these past few months. I have lots of work to do to prepare for winter at home. This divorce has been a hard hit. Miss my children. Going to keep training and leveling up at work. Talking to a new woman that is good at communicating and has similar values. My guild mates in a game I’ve played a lot want me to come back. One day at a time... I’ve changed a lot these past 3 months. I’ve had lots of challenges and feel good about the direction my life is going at this point. Yes, some things are still raw,
  5. I didn’t read a whole lot of your story, but there are two things that stood out that may be helpful. I get two impressions fairly quickly. One is that you tend to overthink a bit. That contributes to your anxiety or stress. I am a thinker too. Analytical to a fault. Rock climbing and boxing helps you manage your mind. It’s okay. Two, this over thinking sometimes has you being too hard on yourself to achieve or attain. Contentment is something you seem to discover when you sort of lose yourself in living in the now. I think dating and having this perspective from a good f
  6. Day 83 - Did time stop? This job... One day at a time. Keep moving.
  7. Day 82 - Closer. Talked to my children. Work good. Sleepy.
  8. Day 80 - Game Free. Haven’t talked to the kids in weeks. My ex is not allowing communication with them. My lawyer is helping me. Met a lady that is amazing and we have been talking almost every day this week and have a lot in common. Feeling rough today. Keep fighting out there! One day at a time.
  9. Yes, I am writing poetry again after a 13 year famine. I’ve done about a dozen or so in the past several weeks. Thank you for reading my story. I hope something I said helps. Sometimes I get too zealous and then I do push too hard. Thanks for the reminder. ?
  10. Day 78 - Wow. Killing it. One day at a time... You can do this. Whoever you are reading this. Get to a place where you put all your gaming stuff completely beyond your reach. Bury it in the backyard. Whatever... My success has been largely in part to being physically removed from temptation except for my phone. Worth considering if you are struggling out there.
  11. Be strong. You got this. When you are struggling try reading a journal from someone that seems to be having some success. You are not alone.
