Hello, my name is Oryus and I'm a recovering DDO addict.

I had to quit cold turkey and just not come by for months.

But then... after about a year. Yes, it's been about a year now of intense recovery and treatment that I'm finally able to post casually without getting sucked in and letting DDO take over my life.

That's pretty awesome. Now I can go to the DDO party without getting sh1tfaced on The Drunk Thread, vomiting in the RAAMP thread, losing my phone and car keys in the Personal thread, and waking up in some strange place called the "Religion forum" with no fvcking idea how I got there or why- GOD, WHY?! Yes, now I can just post in the DDO forum, Society, and Personal casually, read over some horrendous misrepresentations of science in the Science forums and NOT feel the need to fruitlessly respond. I can read about DDO politics without giving a single fvck about what's happening behind the scenes.

I'm proud to say that I'm a casual DDO user.

Please, share your story of addiction and recovery here. No judgment.

I support you babe. It's not a relapse if you rationalize it.

I used to be a DDO addict. But then Juggle successfully catered the site to appeal to a mainstream audience, and turned what was once a rare and special website to a select few people into utter sh1t. And then my addiction to DDO ended

That's right, dk. Get it all out.

I feel your pain. Luckily the influx of mainstream audience appeals to the hipster in me too.

I'm pretty addicted. I think about it all the time, but if there's nothing pending, I can tear myself away. It's my form of entertainment and community, so I spend lots of time on it, but in short broken up intervals.

It's human nature, you can't expect everyone to embrace the esoteric DDO past. Icons are eternal and universal.

That's pretty awesome.

Please, share your story of addiction and recovery here. No judgment.

I think there was a point where I was addicted, but I don't think I am now. I just like the people, and love one of them.
