Some people, including myself, like to check in daily or weekly or whatever to be accountable. I know I need that accountability, so have started this topic. Please feel free to check in here as often as you wish.
I've just stopped gaming again after 12 days of relapse, thanks to another gaming addict in recovery, who helped me to stop. I found that I could access an old game that was formerly blocked (we have filtered interenet) after reseting my computer. I couldn't resist the temptation to play it again and downloaded the client, made an account and started playing one evening. As always, when I've relapsed, I thought I could moderate THIS time. Of course, that's addict thinking and I ended up, by the end of the 12 days, playing most of the day and not ever wanting to stop. I don't think I would have stopped yesterday, either, if it wasn't for my HP sending my friend to give me a hand in finding my way out.
So today, is my first day of getting back on track and being game-free once again.
