Kicking the MMO Addiction

Been a long while since I've posted.  I've never been that great at keeping up with my blog, for various reason that are really not important to this post.

I've been playing various MMO's over the last 12 years, moving to new games as I go bored with the old one, even returning to favorites as I discover the grass is not always greener.  MMO's and gaming in general have always been a part of my adult life.  Habits like these are always the hardest to kick as you become accustom to them being there.  At least that is until now.

What's changed you may ask?  It's hard to pinpoint any one factor for me.  Be it a change in attitude as I've gotten on in years or the general poor condition my body is now in from so many long hours at the computer eating foods that are not healthy and having little exercise.

What's kept me going for the last few year are the friendships I've created.  This factor is the one reason I will never regret my gaming addiction.

So as I go onto new and better things in my life I wanted to post this parting message.  Soon I look to reverse the damage done to my body by years of abuse and enjoying other hobbies that come my way.  I've always wanted to do more outdoors and camping/hiking appeal to me a lot.

As far as cyberspace goes, I'm toying with the idea to start a daily/weekly blog that chronicles my journey from an overweight ex-gamer to a svelte outdoors-man.  Well, maybe not svelte, but at least in a condition where I won't pass out taking a walk.

I'll update this post later with the details of my plans.  Hopefully my experiences I share will help others in the same position.

UPDATE:  New blog, Svelte Gamer Project, started.
