Good job!

hi there,

i'm new and wondered how to get permission to view posts in the 'sticky' section of this forum? my husband is an addicted gamer who wants to quit (i'm a member of eq widows) and we're looking for a forum where he can talk to people who are going through what he is/we are. i'll post more after he gets a chance to introduce himself but i feel like i've got a great support group and would rather he gets the chance to "be here first" if that makes any sense? I'm just 'scouting' today. thanks! jen

Hi Jen :wave

The Rehab Room is the place where gamers, current and former, discuss gaming and quitting strategies. It is a public forum; he can just register and have at it. Most folks make a post to the Introductions forum when they first come to GW, but he does not have to if he does not want to.

Unfortunately one of the problems with many of these "links to stories" is that they sit in other forums and many of us in the rehab room dont have permission to view them.

I have raised this with the moderators of these forums and hope to have the problem resolved.

thanks for the info (and the hello :wave ). is it strange though that i can access some of the links in the first post of this thread but not all? the game theory links are blocked (tips etc) and only some of the intros but not all? i sent a pm to lyoness last week but haven't heard back yet...thanks, jen

Hi all.

I hope this is the right place to put this. This is a link to my Gaming Addiction (and smoking, alcohol and Rx drug addiction) recovery story:

My forum name on is MickyO.

I joined that community two years ago and just signed up for a new Challenge. It's a beautiful community and trolls are very quickly captured and carted away. =)

I hope you do check it out since there is support for any kind of addiction you can imagine. I found it extremely helpful, once I gave up WoW, to have a new focus and passion. My husband and son are still into it, so it's a bit tough but definitely doable.

If you do decide to join, please send me an email. I'll be very happy to answer any questions you may have. Feel free to email me here as well.

i'm new and considered how to get authorization to perspective content in the 'sticky' area of this forum? my partner is an dependent player who wants to stop (i'm a participant of eq widows) and we're looking for a message board where he can discuss to individuals who are going through what he is/we are. i'll publish more after he gets a opportunity to create himself but i experience like i've got an excellent assistance team and would rather he gets the opportunity to "be here first" if that creates any sense?
