Hi. I am 25 and I am from Russia. I used to play video games(with some brakes) since I have been 7 years old or something close to it because the year when i played first video games was around 2k. I had a long story of gaming issues and relapses. This would be a way too large wall of text for a simple greeting so I hope to share it later.
I can't say I feel much problems with gaming now but I also can't say that I am completely rehabilitated. Currently, I play  one or two video games(not online) from time to time(like 2-3 hours session) usually in a way people use TV just to pass the time when I got nothing better to do or the weather is bad to go outside. I did the quiz and it said that I have 3 out of 10. So I think I am doing good so far. However, my final goal is not bothering myself with such kind of stuff at all. The reason why I decided to register on this forum was the fact that most people i know(knew) aside from maybe 1-2 people tend to underestimate the issue of gaming addiction and one day I thought that it can't be possible that I am the only one who started getting a vibe that gaming is actually an issue ruining his life and started to do something about it and that was how I found this website in the internet.  As I said I would like to write my story later and I think if it somewhat somehow will help someone(like at least one person) it would be actually nice.

Hey Niko, welcome. It's good to hear that you're doing better than you maybe were in the past - celebrating those small wins is key.

Thank you for the support. Sure it is way better than the time I started that "war". I plan to make a journal soon and elaborate some things because I plan to stop bothering myself with video games once and for all(don't really feel like an overcoming something at this moment more like finishing it off) and I also would like to share my story so its time to keep pushing not resting on my laurels . Relapses taught me that this thing is no joke though. But the last thing to me was the fact that this thing ruined my relationships though in that case, I was not the one who was addicted.
It might look like it but I actually don't blame video games themselves(though some of them are clearly done in a way to be addictive) but video games addiction is really a serious thing that can ruin ones life.

Welcome! I also share your sentiment about gaming and how people underestimate the impact, even if it's not completely destructive to the entire life. Good luck!
