  1. I have tried to quit gaming for a while now and it is hard. I have just come out a personal nightmare from being strapped down in the hospital because pf Schizophrenia and believe me its not fun I quit smoking for a month and 10 days/ I started back to smoking again yesterday despit being in mental and physical and emotional pain for almost 6 months. So I left the hospital on my birthday now what does it have to do with Gaming? Well I came home and started playing Call of Duty and it has really brought me down because I am always the worst player on any given match I am 59 years old and to be honest all these games require or put too much pressure on me to perform everyone wants you to play meta I am tired and worn out Literally. I am scared because not only has my life been altered and because I only feel negative about myself its killing me and with my imagination being a slightly better than some I cant for the life of me find for me personally what to do with myself at one point I wanted to get into Falconry but that requires a state and federal license and I dont have the room to take care of the Hawks and birds I would want to have. I used to put hours and hours in the guitar I finally gave that up because noone seemed to like my music. I feel lost and alone and dont know where to begin. I am outta control and need some help on this journey. Please for the Love of God someone give me something to make me feel good about myself not only for me but my entire family. Thanks for reading this.
  2. My name is Terry and I am a gaming addict and today I started over. Last night I felt so lost and away from the world. I have played games for years and something has always been missing in life. I am 58 years old and have mostly been playing Star Trek Online. I have spent maybe 3 to 4 thousand dollars and wasted a lot of time. Now I am also a recovering alcoholic I have been sober for 33 years and 1 week. But gaming is my worst enemy beside 2 other addictions I plan to conquer. but I deleted windows and put Linux on my computer so I have started. I also used to play the guitar but have quit for like the last 3 or 4 years for gaming. I am not sure but I do feel better now that I made this decision any advice and can someone tell me about any withdrawals I may have and how to deal with them? The type of advice I am looking for is what should I do to fill my day with positive actions and thoughts I can think and do. Thanks guys I have been stalking this forum for about 4 years now cause I knew I had a problem but I expect to quit.
  3. This is my first post. A little intro might help. I am 56 years old and have been playing games since I was a kid basically. I was introduced to the internet with my first computer in 1998. I messed around with it but got into gaming in 2005 since then I have been hooked but in the past year and a half I have lost interest in almost everything I used to do. I played guitar, read books, and mostly played games to the point that I have spent a lot of money, and valuable time and neglected the rest. Like I said tho I am losing interest even in games. I just log in and sit for a few minutes may talk may not depends then I log out. I have discord on my computer and about the only game I am active in is a browser game based on the Star Wars Universe it's called Star Wars Combine. I am on that every day but it seems not to take to much time. What I really like in this game is the community I am involved in. Anyway I am wanting to give this game up too as I am getting older plus I smoke and I want to quit so I can live longer. Where do I start? How do I go about telling these people I can't play anymore and how do I find some new interests. I am depressed and apathetic finding it very hard to find anything else to get going on. Sorry for such a long post but this is my story and my delimma.
