Unhappy I need help. No, seriously...I have a problem.

I don't know if this is the appropriate place to post this... if it's appropriate to post at all... but I'm getting kind of desperate here, and I thought that you guys of all people could help me.

I am addicted to Heroscape.

Now, before going on anymore, please realize that this thread is in all seriousness. This is not a place to post funny/snarky comments about how you have been arrested for public displays of your "Jotun," or smoking some grass...tiles, or selling the kids for an extra Ticalla Jungle expansion.

I am almost positive that I am seriously, if not dangerously, addicted to the game, purchasing, and even concepts of Heroscape. I have spent nearly all of the money I own on eBay just on Heroscape items; I find myself unable to concentrate on anything without relating it back to Heroscape--even morbid conversations with friends or family meant for solemn concentration; and I have even found myself missing full days of classes simply to stay in my dorm room and design custom maps, characters, or armies.

This is a plea for help. I am reaching out to those who understand the draw and the power of the incredible game of Heroscape--great, intelligent and lovely people who might relate to me where a counselor never could.

If anyone--anyone at all--has any suggestions, tips, advice, or methods that I can utilize or seek out in order to help me do more with my life than just do Heroscape all day, please, let me know. I sincerely hope that the brilliant minds here can assist not only me, but others who are truly struggling with Heroscape addiction.

Thank you for your time.

Re: I need help. No, seriously...I have a problem.

If this is serious, then I would suggest seeking professional help. Talk to a therapist, a school counselor, or clergyman.

Addiction or perhaps in this case, obsession, is serious. Its good that you have realized you have a problem, now seek the help you need.

I wish I could be more help. Good luck.

72 tournaments. 173 - 142 - 1 overall record. 6 tournament wins.

My goal, play every official 'scape unit in a tournament at least once. 149 down, 55 to go!

Re: I need help. No, seriously...I have a problem.

Start Reading Threads. Every thread beginning to end. You will get so sick of hearing that DUND sucks, Taelord costs to much or that we need pirates that you will burn out.

The key to an obsession is to indulge until you are sick then you will return to a healthly relationship, or die, I guess Dieing is always an option.

I just tell myself to STOP. After talking about 'scape for a bit, try asking the other person a question.

If you aren't taking care of yourself and you aren't being responsible - and it sounds like you're worried about these things - then read it again.

Everybody needs help sometimes. Some people really struggle with how to ask, that's all.

Re: I need help. No, seriously...I have a problem.

I used to be addicted to Xbox. I went into withdraw on the weekdays when I couldn't play it. I played all weekends and did little else. However, my parents finally allowed me to play on weekdays, and I played all day then too. Eventually, I got bored, and now haven't played it in a month or so. I hope you don't get this bored with Heroscape, but I do hope that you lose your obsession. Good luck!

Go to a twelve step meeting. Its great for perspective even if you're not an addict/alcoholic. They have them everywhere and they meet almost every hour.

Sell the stuff. Out of sight/mind.

I am serious.

Heroscape is a gateway into a wonderful world of games that I never would've known existed otherwise.

That's good advice, if it's as bad as you say... I'd also suggest blocking this website from your computer.

Re: I need help. No, seriously...I have a problem.

While I'm not at all familiar with Wisconsin, more than a decade working in mental health has shown me that there are a good number of outpatient services available, free of charge even. Talk to your family, friends, even your physician about referring you to someone who can really help you get a handle on your obsession.

It's good that you're recognizing your obsession, now it's time to take action. Best of luck to you; you'll find your strength.

Re: I need help. No, seriously...I have a problem.

The serious next step would be to seek help.

You need to talk to a therapist. They can help guide you through breaking your obsession with Heroscape. Parents, friends, etc. can all help, but all have a vested interest. If you want an honest non-biased opinion, and real help, therapy is the way to go.

You have identified the problem or see something you don't like in yourself. Thats a Great thing, even if it does not feel like it, because your going to change it.

Self improvement hurts, but it will make you stronger.

Good luck.
