NEW VIDEO: I Quit MMOs and THIS Happened

Hello, addiction and thank you.


Recommended Posts


I just wanted to introduce my self. I have been an avid gamer for decades. However, it is really only in the last 12 months or so that I have recognised the impact that gaming has had on my life. I have previously quit and then slowly the gaming crept back in. Now, I can see the pattern of addiction: trying to stop but failing, having gaming dominating my thoughts to the exclusion of the people around me, always looking forward to the next time I can game. I can no longer deny what is the truth.

I would be what would be called a high functioning addict. I can maintain the status quo with work and fitness. However, I am alienating the people closest to me. I have also  given up other skills and hobbies that I had invested large amounts of time in. In addition, my ability to invest into changing my situation is effectively choked off because what little spare time I have is spent gaming.

Thanks guys and Cam, who I have been following for some time now. Very inspirational.

See you in the forums,

Welcome to the forums Leon! 

Sir, you show great insight with your words! Seems that you have your current situation well sorted out in your head. That's a great starting point. I can bet you already have an idea in the back of your mind of what do you want to do with yourself, and now you would need a period of detox to give space and clarity of mind for that idea to materialize. My two cents at least.
