Used to be good...

Post by bradurrrrz » Thu Oct 03, 2019 2:04 am

Long story short. Played darts age 8-17, was obsessed. Played pub league at 13 and superleague at 16. I even had a 9 darter when I was 16 and remember just not thinking about anything when I threw darts other than the target.

I had my son at 18 and walked away for 10 years from darts. I’ve just started playing again and I just can’t get to where I was. I am overthinking everything. I am nervous playing league matches and I’m now trying to think what I did when I was younger. 29 now and I honestly used to think I had the game to make it all the way.

Now I’m debating what the hell has happened to me. It feels to me it’s all in my head, but I know I’m 50% of the player I was even with practice. Gonna give up if I can’t work it out.

Welcome to the forum mate

You almost played for 10 years so it's no wonder you're not as good as you used to be. It takes a lot more time to get back to that level. The right thing is to stop comparing yourself to your previous level. If there's too much pressure, you will just get nervous. Have fun playing and don't think that much about actually hitting things.

Problem is between your ears, stop thinking about the game, and admit to your self you won't ever be that good again...you might surprise yourself..
