Wow, I applaud you for your strength, self-awareness and taking control of your life (and gaming-habits). It’s truly no small feat. This post may be a bit bitter-sweet - as it’s always hard losing a valued member - but the power [in your honest words] emits a message of hope. & That is truly remarkable (especially as, nowadays, it’s increasingly more difficult to find - especially here )
I’m no stranger to depression (nor addiction), so in my own way, I can understand how difficult this must have been - arriving at both this decision, and sharing it with us, as well. I hope to one day find the strength, as you have, to say “no more” when I’ve finally had enough. It isn’t always as [seemingly] simple, especially when RL is its own battle too, and addiction takes the wheel… But at least the game itself is making it easier [on all of us], so silver lining maybe?
Either way, it still takes quite a bit of will-power - especially when you’re in deep - so I truly admire [that] & I do have to commend you for sharing a piece of your truth with all of us; I found it incredibly relatable and inspiring.
Thank you for sharing, and for all that you’ve given to both this forum, and E&P. I wish you all of the best [in your future endeavors]. May you continue on, finding peace in this positive decision [of yours], and in the plaguing battle that is depression [as you move forward]. I wish you all of the luck, and happiness, [that you can find] in this world
All the best
