I have got an addiction on these forums.

The forums are effecting my social life with my GF she has come up to me and told me i post far to much and i spend to much time on the forums and its effecting our social life well mine mostly.

I tried leaving forever and that lasted 1 day lol.

I have tried going outside walking the dog but i always think about world of tanks eu forums :S.

Any suggestions or advice guys ?.

I am 30 years old made redundant from last job worked for 6 years, GF works as a chef big plus for my meals of course ;p.

Does anyone else suffer these problems ?.

Please Help.

Are you really serious?

If so, dont try to go away for good, you can start by having 1 or 2 days in the week when you wont look into the forums. In those days try to do something else really interesting and enjoyable. Maybe going to some courses or joining to some sports club would help...

Theres a simple test where you can see how addicted you are to internet.

I have an addictive personality. I guess you need to replace the forum with a healthier pursuit. I would begin by only posting between set hours. You continue to read it as much as u like . Over time you can replace the forum with something else.

If u are unemployed I would try to find some structure to your day that also includes learning something. It may make the misses happy too :)

Its quite high, almost problematic. IMO you could think about your goal, write it down and set a date in your calendar. Maybe 2-3 months from now. On that date you can check have you reached your goals. If you failed in reaching your goals then look for a professional help. If you reached your goals, get yourself a nice dinner or something and set the next date in the calendar.  When you reach the second date, just check are you still living by your goals.

Ps. My score is 57

I dont think a site can render me worse but it is high.

If i was to set dates they would be forgotten missed or dont exist so not a good idea.

I will see if i can reduce my posting maybe play the game more instead but its so hard maybe i do need professional help but im poor i cant afford them things ! :/.

Thumbs up for you, hopefully you can do it. The site is just to rise awareness...

In most countries there are some groups or nongovermental organisations which help people with addictions, you must have heard about AA clubs for example. Usually those will provide help for free or with very low expenses.

The key is to be active, many people have gotten help from those peer groups.
