!Help needed in deleting my Steam account!

Recommended Posts

I didn't even think that I would need to delete my Steam account, and now it horrifies me. I wasn't even aware that it means so much for me to have this account. Would it be alright to give it to some friend, but there is a risk I would ask to get it back, right? I am not sure how to do it. And what to tell to people in my friend list in there.

Any tips?

Thank you

Honestly it's probably for the best if you delete your account altogether, but at least for the 90 day detox, you can set up a temporary email, move your steam login credentials to that email and set the email and its password to your main email 90 days later using a future email service.

I'm doing this as at the moment and my god it was hard. However, I simply know that I cannot rely on myself to not go back into Steam and start up a game for a 'quick session'.

So, I've followed the steps provided and am now talking to steam support to get it shut down. There is 30 day period to wait until it is fully gone and then...that's it. 

I've also seen about gifting games to friends of mine who I know would like some of them.

It's a brutal move but it is a necessary one for us. I look at it like this, what am I actually losing? No one will care about achievements, gamer friends will get over it and it may even make some of them refocus on their own situations. You can tell them the truth and say you are re-evaluating your life and need time away from games. Or, simply don't say anything at all and ust cut the cord. Remember, a true friend will understand and be supportive. If not, then maybe you shouldn't be friends.

See it as a move toward freedom, think of all the things you will be able to now do and make new friends and new experiences. I myself am looking forward to making some rel-life friends and play sports, read more books, going to a boardgame cafe and get into some fitness classes.

I hope that helps but you got this and can do it. Think of the liberation on the other side and myself and everyone here to support you through this.
