Cameron Largent, 26, lives with his mother in a big suburban house in Rock Springs, Wyoming. His favorite spot at home is the basement couch, where he’s set up to play the fantasy video game World of Warcraft.
“I’m a priest,” he said. “So my job is to run around and heal people. [My character] is the highest level you can get: level 100.”
Largent has had a lot of time to level up recently: he has been sober for six months. It’s the longest he has gone without drinking for years.
