Joba added a topic in Celebrate11 months!Hi Everyone,
I just realized this today and just too damn happy not to post. What an incredible journey it has been. I going to do an in-depth post once I hit a year however I'm just so happy to be sitting here realizing that my life is going in the direction I want. I wanted to let anyone know who is struggling to keep going because life only gets better and it has the biggest return of investment. Strange and wonderful things happen to your mind; you start to think clearly, creativity skyrockets, and you even sleep better! The confidence you get overcoming VGA outweighs any game reward, especially when the world tells you otherwise. Its incredibly empowering to realize your own strength and to liberate yourself. I feel free!
Thank you Cam for starting this movement, and to everyone else to keep on persisting because your time is valuable and it only gets better!
PS: I have some very exciting news that i'm DYING to tell everyone about but thats' a secret until next month!

Joba added a topic in Celebrate5 months!Hey GQF!,
Just realized how long its been today, to be honest I actually forgot how long its been since I played. I still get cravings from time to time, but then simply choose a better option.
Plans with time now: Getting a part-time job, so in about 5 months I will have an epic production computer for world domination Music and art... I'm genuinely excited and it gets me out of bed in the morning to go to work.

Joba added a topic in Social Skills, Dating & RelationshipsReplaced gaming with chatrooming?Hello GQs!
I'm still going on strong with no video games (Since March 13th.. i've stopped counting days now hah) but I find myself spending more time in chat rooms, talking about specific interests (audio production) but in the long run I don't think spending 2-4 hours a night is really benefiting me. I've tried cutting out the chat roomy stuff before then in two weeks I start to sort of miss them and then boom, back into chatrooms.
Has anyone else gone or is going through this? What did you do to overcome this.
Thanks in advance!

Joba added a topic in CelebrateDAY 100!!!
What a high, What a high... I'd never thought i'd ever see 100 days of not video games. Going back to gaming seems so toxic now, like smoking cigarettes or hard drugs.
Things i've done in those 100 days:
-Going to the gym consistently every 2 days, Read 2 books, socialized more, more inspired about life, introspection into my own psyche and self... and a lot more!
if you're reading this and contemplating quitting, or even on the detox and having difficulties. Hang in there! the cravings do pass and its worth every moment

Joba added a topic in RelapseAbout to relapse? Go here!Hey Fellow quitters!
I've been having cravings on and off for a while now... i'm on day 97. After the 90 day buzz has worn off, I started to think of things like "Well, that 90 days is over now... maybe I could play again.. " And just before I considered re-installing games "just to see"... I discovered this handy website.
Its a website for learning a second language, registration is really easy and simple, and best of all you get to see your measure of progress and growth. You can jump into it fairly quickly and start learning, right now I decided to learn dutch. So far De Krant is my favourite word to say outloud
Ahh.. its the little things
