    Looking for someone from the UK

    Hey everyone. The UK Parliament has launched a new committee looking into video game addiction and they are looking for someone in the UK aged 18-25 who would be willing to testify and share their experience. Often these inquiries only showcase academic researchers and not the people struggling themselves (like us!) so it's a really great opportunity to share our actual experience with the issue. If this is you, please PM me and I can connect you. Here are the details:

    I am not who I want to be.

    Hi Matt! Glad you decided to stop lurking and join the community.

    Relapse can teach you a lot about yourself. I don't play in moderation because I can't. It's relieving to just accept that.

    Relapse after 4 days.

    What's your resistance to a community? You mentioned you were lonely in your journal and then here you post that you don't want to be a part of a community. I relate to it because for a long time I was lonely yet I pushed everyone around me away. It was when I started to really look deep down as to why that was (I was bullied a lot so afraid of not being accepted) that I was able to shift it and start building relationships again.

    Thanks for sharing. 150 days is still incredible and if you did it once you can do it again. One day at a time. Learn from the relapse and use it to grow.

    I feel like a failure.

    What is your social situation? Are you staying home all day? Could you go to a cafe with a book or something? Going to a gym can also be helpful.

    Good job starting your journal. 🙂

    It's never over. Another afterparty journal

    Check out the book Mindset. One of the concepts in there is about the idea of a growth vs. fixed mindset. Right now you can see that you're focused on "well I am the way I am so I might as well go back to gaming" instead of "this is where I am and this is where I want to be, so I will do XYZ to change and adapt." Gaming isn't going to fix anything. Nor is simply quitting. It's what you do instead that matters.

    Moving on

    Hi Vera! 🙂
  22. Cam Adair

    A few suggestions.

    Thanks for your suggestions - will consider them. We used to have a lot of subforums for specific niches but found they weren't used much. For now the Ask the Community section can be used for a lot of these to have more megathreads on topics.
