Zeeko 77 Posted August 8, 2017 Share Posted August 8, 2017 Hello all.I have attempted the 90 day detox twice now and have relapsed twice now. The second try was worse than the first.Its far more upsetting for me when I did this in the face of such support I received at the time... I realize that there were two main reasons why I relapsed. I couldn't find other things to fill in the huge gaping hole gaming fulfilled for me. It mainly served as a social instrument and a time filler.I tried alternatives, for example I'd want to read a book but feel discouraged that I was tired and didn't want to invest enough mental effort when it was late afternoon. I'd want to see friends but I don't have too many and I live far away to conveniently meet people. Everything constructive felt like it required that extra mile while gaming was at the tip of my finger. But things have changed. I have been offered a job in Sydney which requires me to move away from my family and live independently. Its both an exciting and daunting prospect. Suffice to say, I can't go the way I've been going anymore. It simply isn't an option if I want success. I'm terrible with organisation and I reading a book to improve that (forcing the mental effort). But I feel the withdrawals immediately, clawing at my mind to just let go. Hopefully the third time is the charm. I know i can do this and will do my best!Thanks all. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
