Here We Go Again :(

I'm back here after yet another tumble down the rabbit hole, and it's 100% my fault. I should have known better than to try using a Gaming PC for regular stuff. This relapse lasted two months. Thank God we had a busy Peak Season at work. All that time away from the games gave me a buffer zone.

Now I'm trying to get back on track. I used the extra money from Peak Season to buy a new PC that can only play card games. I am starting to visit the Gym again, and I have reset my "stopped gaming" signature on this website. Today is day one of my new attempt to quit this terrible addiction.

Stopped Gaming: June 22nd, 2014.

Welcome back, Andrew. It's so easy to fall back into that hole. I know that from experience.

Hugs Andrew. Welcome back! I

Hugs Andrew. Welcome back! I hope you learn something out of this relaspe and then move on. Relapse is part of recovery, progression, not perfection! Never too late to quit again. We are not perfect human being, no need to beat yourself up. We are here for you. I still find meeting is the most helpful tool in my recovery. Will see you around.

It's good to have goals and dreams, but while you're waiting for things to change, waiting for promises to come to pass, don't be discontent with where you are. Learn to enjoy the season that you're in--Pastor Joel Osteen

Love that quote,

Love that quote, kyunga.

Welcome back, Andrew!

Acceptance. When I am disturbed, it is because a person, place, thing, or situation is unacceptable to me. I find no serenity until I accept my life as being exactly the way it is meant to be. Nothing happens in God’s world by mistake.  Acknowledge the problem, but live the solution!

Welcome back Andrew, I hope you're still keeping strong as you return to the program. I've heard it's very difficult to come back after a relapse. I am here if you need someone to talk to.

Prayer for the Day: Higher Power, help me to be realistic about the challenge I'm facing and to take good care of myself. If you need help PM me! I will gladly offer you whatever aid I can.
