So this is actually day 6 of my gaming detox, but I didn't get desperate enough to seek help until today. I thought about journaling, but didn't want to write in a place or format where anyone else might see it. I like that this is pretty anonymous. My gaming addiction is something I'm really embarrassed about, which has made it hard to admit and thus hard to quit. When I finally worked up the courage to tell my psychiatrist about it, he just nodded dismissively and never brought it up again. I no longer go to that doctor. Frankly, I'm a little surprised I've made it this far. Usually when I try to quit, I make it 3 or 4 days, tops. With any luck, though, this will be the time that sticks.
