Dear I am, Welcome. Please

Dear I am,

Welcome. Please make a point of attending the Wed and Saturday Skype meetings. Since it is not possible for us to attend evening meetings in Amerca, we will appreciate your support for the meetings in our time zones.

Welcome to OLGA I am! I

Welcome to OLGA I am! I would have liked to write longer but I am very busy lately with overseas visitors staying with us and Xmas around the corner. But I just want to say how pleased I am for you that you decided to quit and deleted all the games on your PC. Acknowledging your problem and taking actions like that are really important steps. So, I congratulate you for that.

My son (who is also 20) uninstalled his game of choice (Leagues of Legends) a few times in the past but after a few days or sometimes weeks he installed back again. What really helped him to stay away from the games for nearly 2 and a half months already is that he finally sold his gaming laptop and his game account. Therefore all the temptations are removed. He has decided to do that after we discovered OLGA. He now shares my spare laptop which has no games whatsoever on it and we also have limited internet time at home only to do essential work. Internet is no longer a source of entertainment but a tool to do what we need to do. I don't know how things will progress in the future but he has never been away from the games and the internet for that long before ever since his excessive gaming started.

I just wanted to share some of our story with you to give you something to think about. I hope you can join the chat meeting here. OLGA community is very understanding and helpful. There is a lot of wisdom and knowledge shared here. Hope you stick around. Good luck and take care!

Dear Tommi,

Thank you so much for your reply. I am really looking forward to it. I checked the meeting that is scheduled today and saw that you are the chairman.

I got a question though. How do I "attend" those meetings? As far as I know, in order to start a skype call with someone, you need to have him in your contacts list. Regarding this, how can I add you? I can give you mine. My skype nickname is jacquamous. If this is how it works.
PS: there are billions of tommi :/

Welcome I am! I am glad you

Welcome I am! I am glad you found us. I hope to see you around. Recovery is a long journey, so make yourself comfortable. Olga meeting was essential in my early recovery, and I rarely missed any in the 30 days. I also created a personal blog to share what has helped in my recovery, and I hope you will find it helpful.
