Hi everyone,

I am also a new member. I still am not abstinent. Much less usage but I know I cannot do it in moderation.
I have had difficulty navigating the system so I am hoping this post does land in the right place.

Welcome! I'm glad you found us here. Come listen in on some of the voice meetings, every day at 10:30am and 7pm PST, also we have them weekdays at 5:30pm. Some of the 10:30am meetings are chat meetings on stepchat.com

I know what it's like to try to get my gaming under control. I really did not want to stop completely and tried every moderation method I could think of. Certainly if any of them had worked, I'd still be using them to game in moderation. But no matter what I tried, I was soon enough bingeing out of control again.

Today I'm just aiming to go this one day with starting that first video game. Just from now 'til bedtime. It helps to keep it simple. Strong urges to game will hit. I highly recommend the meetings and making contact with others through this forum, skype, phone, email, whatever. Together we can do what we cannot do alone.

Hi, Zoom. Welcome to the fellowship of recovering gaming addicts.

Hopefully you have already been to some meetings and gotten some phone numbers. I haven't been to many this week, so I'm looking forward to meeting you soon. See you there.

You have to go the way the way your blood beats:
If you don't live the only life you have,
You won't live some other life,
You just won't live any life at all.

I was dan1 in a former life.

I know the feeling. I tried moderation at least 8 times and I relapsed completely within 1 week. One time my parents locked my computer in a safe which I got out by intermittently stealing the key. I'm happy to see that you're able to cut down your hours! Geez your mind must be killing you :x
