Feeling the love again
Hi all, not posted for a while as i lost the will to play due to poor performance, now having hopefully overcome the low darts problem that plagued me for over a year, i am starting to love the game again, i think the break also did me some good, as constantly throwing when you know there is a problem is so frustrating, and also causes more problems through bad practice, now that i think i have finally identified the problem and found a solution, which for me is heavier darts, throwing is starting to be enjoyable again, so now to find some new darts just to give me a bit more of a push forwards lol.
cheers Carpy

Good on you Carpy. Smile

So you found it was a "Catch-22" trying to play through the tough times. I fully understand that. I too have had some frustrating times on the dart board, especially when dealing with the dreaded dartitis that has hit me twice over the past 30+ years of playing.

You try to forge on, only to get more and more frustrated, and that brings on more issues to deal with. Stepping away is sometimes a good thing to do and glad to see you have your desire to get back into the game again. I've found as I've aged, the darts have gone up a bit in weight and I can no longer throw darts in the 20-23 gram weight with any consistency. Most of my current darts in use are 25 & 26 gram darts.

Often the most overlooked part of the whole game is making sure you have fun.

If you are having fun the rest just follows.

Glad you are enjoying darts again (It is a fun but sometimes frustrating game!)
Back playing and having fun!

Don't put any undue pressure on yourself, just keep it fun.
If you know what I'm doing, don't tell me .... I find bliss in my confusion.

I am kinda mentally going through this right now.  I am playing poorly and am having the mental struggle of do I play through it or take a break for a month.  My issue is that I love playing, but hate the play right now and that I do not have anybody to watch me and tell me the error in my ways.  I know most of it is mental as I know I am a better player and am striving to get to the next level.  The other side is that I am trying different darts right now and am not sure if it is the dart or the throw.

I had a rough year so far with my game so I know how you feel. Heck, I posted my meltdown all on here and some other facebook groups so I'm probably on some bad books of some members.

Take it slow, 'cause we all are facing tough times in darts. Just as long we can pull through with a smile, that's the most important.

Glad your up and running again, I had a break a while back to re ignite my love of the game and it worked for me,

That's great to hear. Other than the break, what else helped you bring that passion back?

Thanks for the post I think most people go through highs and lows. Be good to hear what people say they do to overcome theirs. I enjoy darts so my low wasn't exactly giving up but moving to soft tip darts. I found the different game and way to attack the dartboard a breath of fresh air.
