I had dartitis for many many years, tried everything possible, but in the end I went to a well know and respected sports psycologist who said he had worked with a dart player before but said dartitis was no different to shootings "trigger freeze" golfings "yips", etc etc, i took on board what he had to say - which worked, gotta say its like trying to give up smoking - its always in your mind- hovering in the background for a long time but finally at least the shackles were lifted, if anyone wants to get in touch with me re this "curse" - contact me please.

Am having dartitis and am struggling with my release of the dart. I just hold it but I can't release it. I end up just throwing for the darts to leave me, as I can spend up to a minute, just pointing, at the dart board. Temporarily though it dissappears, but reappeares again.

I First disvovered that i had dartitis after playing for about 7 years.I quit playing for a few years,but then decided to try & beat this.It took me many years to over come it.I can help anyone to do the same.It is a mental problem that with help can be fixed.
