New Beginnings


Recommended Posts

Hello all!

This is not my first foray into the realm of Game Quitters, but I thought I'd briefly introduce myself. My name is Paul, and I'm currently 19 years old. I was first introduced to Game Quitters at 13, and I was a fairly active part of the community until I decided to distance myself from it, because I began to spend an unhealthy amount of time on the forum. It was like taking one addiction and replacing it with another. I hope to change that this time around though. A lot has changed since I was last a part of the forum. For one, I've grown up a fair bit. I've developed more as an individual and as a man, but admittedly I still have a lot of growing up to do. I started making music (rapping, mixing, and mastering) and I've got a job now selling furniture. A lot has changed since 6 years ago, but the one thing that has remained constant is my on-and-off relationship with video games. I'm able to kick games for a while, maybe even a few months, just to return to gaming with a vengeance. My most recent run was about 2 weeks of nonstop, compulsive gaming, which severely strained my relationship with my family. My dad even threatened to kick me out of the house. Luckily, I was able to cut back significantly, but I've decided I might as well give up this old crutch of mine for good - for real this time. I purchased a copy of Respawn Elite and I've committed myself to quitting gaming forever! I'm not sure what the future holds for this decision, but at the moment I'm excited and motivated to move forward into the next phase of my life - a life that's free of any vices and addictions. I'm simultaneously working to curb my addiction to PMO (porn, masturbation, and orgasm) as well. This is probably the more sinister of my two addictions, but I digress. I've been using a crude practice of mindfulness and meditation to quench my urges and cravings, with mixed results. I'm hoping Game Quitters will provide me the resources to beat both of these addictions. I just wanted to express my gratitude for a community of like-minded individuals like this one, and I wish you all luck and success on your individual journeys!
