I'm a new member. I've been playing Clash of Clans for three or four weeks. I've had trouble with excessive gaming in the past but was always able to deal with it by deleting my saved games. When I deleted all my progress I found it easy to stop playing rather than redo everything. However Google Play has saved my Clash of Clans data on their "cloud" and try as I might I haven't been able to delete it. I keep coming back to it and during the last couple of weeks had several nights where I was up too late and didn't get enough sleep. I have been putting off other important tasks to play the game. One night I was furious for once again staying up too late despite being sleep deprived, but the next day I played more. I've called my brother and he's agreed to let me call him every evening to report on whether or not I've played the game. I'd also like to report on this thread. It is humiliating to admit powerlessness, but recently I haven't been able to control my behavior. I appreciate this web site and the support of any who read.
May we all be well.
