  1. Hey @UsualSuspect Make sure you find a psychologist that you feel a connection with. Not the number of certificates or whatever. Also, in my opinion, therapy is about finding yourself, listening to your own voice and making sure you, yourself, find your own solutions. It takes time to develop a good, trusting relationship with your shrink but also with yourself. So if you feel the relationship with the shrink is okay, give it time :).
  2. I say this with kindness: You're starting a turning point in your life as you're turning away of your own defense mechanisms that shielded you from all the miserable feelings. Does that sound like an easy thing to do? No, it is probably one of the hardest, but the most rewarding. You say it yourself, I need to grow up. Yes. You will grow up.

The cause is always pushing away / running away of very strong feelings. The thing that numbs it - for you masturbation, for others something else - is just a symptom of the pain. Take on the pain and the symptom disappears. You will succeed. You will.
  5. Hi all, I'm Peter, 29y old and I guess addicted to gaming in general but specifically to League of Legends. When I was young, my mother (father left) forbid me to play video games while all my friends could play. So when I was at a friend's house, I played so much and watched how everyone else just had fun together while I was the one who 'couldn't play' or 'wasn't good enough' cause they had practice and I did not. They also could play online together and I could not. Also, our computer was way too bad to play something on decent FPS rate. Long story short - gaming was the forb
