    Hey there. It si a good thing that you share your problems. It seems like you feeling afraid to let someone near you and thats why your brain focusses on their bad attributes. One Thing you could try is to find one little thing every day which is good at the people around you. Start small with things like they leave you alone if oyu tell them too or smth like this.
    I hope you figure this out but I would advice you to see a psychiatrist. It is ok to seek help. We are all human beeings and we all feel like crap if we are alone and have noone to rely on. A psychiatrist will show you the flaws in your thinking from an objective point of view. Just try it out. If it is shitty/unhelpfull you can still stop. We tend to just evade the things which could be the most helpful. And I saw many People greatly benefit from going to a professional. Just because it feels bad to admit that you need help that is no reason at all not to seek it out.

    Hey. It looks like you are in an ok place. I was wondering was happened to you.
    I am glad that the place you are seems helpful. I personally have friends who go through or gone through similar things, so I am glad that you accept all the benefits you can take out of your stay there. Also it is always a bonus to have cute nurses around.
    I stopped using gamequitters but check in from time to time. Best of luck to you man.

    Hi guys and girls,
    I hope you are still doing well,
    I lately started to browse here from time to time for little study breaks and will soon talk a little bit about the time after I stopped being here regular. Tomorrow my last exam is done so I maybe find half an hour for it then :).

    Hey Steve, I just returned to gamequitters for a little learning break and to catch up a bit on you guys and see that you returned again.
    Awesome. You are here the third time and thats something you can be proud of. Sure you relapsed but you reflected about your decision and came back from it again and again. Also your gamefree periods get longer and longer and I am sure you achieve more then you think in these periods where you otherwise would gamed away your time. Even if it maybe doesn't seem like a lot of progress but you did make progress and I am proud of you!
    Well nugh said... Tomorow is my hopefully last exam so wish me luck ;).

    Adieu gamequitters. It was a great time.
    Hello guys.
    I am an active gamequitter since over a year now . The people here gave me a save environment to change my habits and gain a new perspective on live. But in agreement with the motto of the year (Simplicity) I decided to say goodbye to the gamequitters community and focus more on other areas in my life and the people which are in physical reach of me like my friends, colleagues and most importantly my family.  I am ready to stand alone on my feet and gamequitter has become a crutch where I lean on to heavily. So I let go of this crutch with a heavy heart. It is possible that I will be back someday.

    I am sorry to break our accountability Group but I think you should do great without me too. I jsut Need to cut as many dependencies as possible to Focus on the things which are most important to me. I hope you do well and have a awesome life. Thank you all for your support.
    ‌@Cam Adair

    Thank you!
    Hi fellow gamequitters,
     
    I just wanted to thank you all for being awesome.
    Especially now that Cam seems to have some time issues and prioritizes other things about replying to every post 2 times a day it is imporant that we support each other. This way noone gets the feling that we don't care about him/her because noone oosts on his/her Journal. This is working great so far I can tell and you seems to take the advice to focus your commenting on a few selected journals. I personally tend to over do my activity here instead of working so i am really glad to see that the dystem works and noone is feeling left out. So let's keep helping each other!
    Gj guys and girls. You make the difference!

    The question is not only what you prioritize but also if it will help you to game again. As I see it you have now more time to deal with your private issues be´cause you don't game.
    Would gaming now really have a positive inpact on the other Areas of your life? In my experience to escape into gaming isn't as pleasant as you imagine. Me personally did it always stress more to game then not to game (ofcourse I still wanted too). Especially if things got hard and difficult I couldn't totally escape into gaming anymore. That was one reason why I quit in the first place. It seems to me like you Need another activity where you get temporary escape where oyu can relax a Little bit. How about listening to audiobooks or watching documentations? Sure this isn't "productive" but it also can take your mind from problems for some time and usually doesn't is as stressful as gaming.

    Ja er ist sehr hilfreich* (hilfsbereit is being ready to help: hilfe = help,  bereit = ready; hilfreich means delivering a lot of helpful stuff:  reich =  rich.
    Good Job on replying in german. It will help you a lot to apply your knowledge.
    One thing which helps me  lately to get some reading done without effort is to use audible and lsiten to adiobooks. You can put them most of the time on1,5-2 times speed and do them while running/cleaning/etc. I would really recommend you "Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynmann". It is made out of stories from Richard Feynmann who was a famous scientist nobel prize winner and helped to develop the atom bomb. His attitude towards science and physics is really great. I wish I had read/listen to it before starting my studies.

    Hey gj on investing in you. I'll check daily if you did Journal. MAybe put a Meditation Counter up so we(and you) feel the pressure of the chain method. I would davice oyu to go for a limited time first. 2weeks or so.  A time frame you can realisticly say that you will mange to do your daily Meditation whatever happens. I' ll start together with you. I am lately a little bit inconsistent with meditating.

    yeah I stopped my daily Journal and subsituted it through a private one and the weekly experiments. I feel better this way. It felt so limiting to have to worry about privacy issues. And I don't need a reminder to come here anyway
