obelix_mtg 22 Posted May 5, 2020 Share Posted May 5, 2020 I have tried writing journals in the past, but nobody would read them, so I always stopped. I like the anonymity of being able to do this in an internet forum where nobody knows me, I think it might help me get more real. Today is my first day without gaming in a looooooong time. It hasn't been 24 hours yet, and I'm excited to be on the way. I've known I had an issue for years now, but I never really wanted to stop. I tried many soft approaches, like stopping one game to go to another one, but never really said the words out loud: I'm addicted to gaming. I did that yesterday, to my therapist first, then to my wife. Today, I feel excited about the prospect, but still struggle with the idea of never playing games again - rationally, I know that's what I need, but it does feel painful. To say goodbye, I have started a process to sell my full Magic collection. I've had some of these cards for 20+ years, they are in many ways my most priced physical possession, and it breaks my heart to send them away, but I do think it will help me commit to this change. 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
