Hello everyone!

My name is Nicholas R and I am a gaming addict.
I'm seemingly the first in my family to have a gaming problem.
I also did drugs and drank to excess.
So, I'm an addict all the way around.

I attend AA meetings in my home town of Houston regularly. These help keep me sober, connected, and on-track to what really matters in life, which is living in God's will of helping others.

I use the word "God" to signify a Higher Power. My idea of this Higher Power is pretty inclusive, but I don't feel like sharing what it means to me.

I'm diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorders. I am on medication for those.

I'm going to school for computer programming and in my free time I like to play piano and produce music, among other things.

The Mumble meetings I went to a few months ago really helped solidify the fact that I was a gaming addict. I'm so grateful that they exist and that they're attended so that I can relate to the people in them.

That's all! Thanks for reading! Peace

Hello Nicholas. I'm glad that you're here. My other addictions are not substance related, but you aren't at all alone here in having more than just a gaming addiction. It's good that you've been to some meetings...I suggest also looking into getting a sponsor and working the steps in this program as well. All of the things that you've found necessary to do in order to stay sober from your other addictions will probably be required to stay sober from this one, and maybe some other things that you've not done in the past as well. Regardless, you're welcome here, and thanks for posting.

Glad you're here Nicholas. Hope to keep seeing you in the meetings. They're a great help in many ways. I've definitely found it true that together we can do what we cannot do alone.
