    HAPPY AF, thanks to GQ!
    I am now long time back from my eternal wandering in the obscure paths of Gilienor. 
    I still play chess, but gaming doesn't affect my life anymore.

    Immediate recovery. I instantly recovered from this craaazy relapse. Thanks to the GQ community.
    Now I don't go that often on discord, which offers immediate contact with fellow (ex) gamers. I even met some mates that wanted to learn my language!
    Back to the facts. 
    3.0+ hours of studying.
    1.5 hour of music
    Time spent on Social media.. worth
    Sleep recovery... Totally legit
    I use a website called course hero (if anybody knows), which is paying, but it let you get access to study material. I have already downloaded 20+ midterms and finals samples from that website. That 'll be food for thought.
    Nevertheless, TheLight is still strong in this journey to conquer the Void. The Bright Side shall overtake Darkness!
    I'll try to find something to post everyday single day and I realize how close I am to the 90 day detox. Perhaps I will succeed, perhaps I will not. But let us have in mind unlimited Optimism!
    The Dark Soul is slowly disappearing..
    Ahem.. time for the real stuff
    I actually found a lot of pretty girls down the streets near my school. Not depending on their out fit.. lol
    Gaming is a useless piece of crap...
    Indeed, a lot of things superior to that.
    For instance.
    -800 million people are obese. Yep. That's a fact.
    -There might be a chance that the Earth's population reaches 30 billion by the end of the century.
    -Water may disappear one day?
    -Fuck MLMs. And crazy shit like that. They take you money and go away. Have you ever been robbed?
    -Bru, we are in 2016, but in reality that's not the case (I won't specify why)
    That what you get when you listen to class.
    I just listed a bunch a things there, without any precise order.
    Goal (wish list):
    Write a book. 
    Spend more time on music and even MORE on studies.
    Talk to girls. 
    .... to be continued

    So yeah. Let's face it.  Let's be honest. Can't let this [thing] control me any more! Free !! FREE!! (I always write like that..)
    Nutrition: 4/10
    Physical Activity: 4.2/10
    Music: ---
    What the fuck?
    I haven't progress a bit!
    The REAL reason 
    I kind of feel ashamed of telling everything here on the forum. People here are improving everyday now and I don't want to spill my negativity over the community.
    Today I talked to fellow ex-gamers on discord. What a nice pleasant chat.
    Midterms are extremely near, so what the @$% should I do?
    It's a terrible vicious cycle. I talked to Cam recently and I think the best solution is to right the journal every day. Remember, it is like a mirror, a reflection of one's thoughts.
    So what I am going to do? Right now, my mind is a mess.Thank god this is not the end of the term. I have been on a high negative cash flow these days (I don't earn income).
    Lack of sleep makes me drowsy. Yesterday I slept at 4.am because I spent some considerable amount of time finding free RP for LOL and ending paying 10 bucks. Man, that's so stupid...
    I don't know how to manage my time, organize my schedule, and the biggest problem of all, PROCRASTINATION! That's right.
    I recently got a driver's licence knowledge test which I should have been preparing for months. Until the very last minute... I changed the time of the appointment...
    What is the root of all evil? Computer, games or that devil that strives in our mind and seek to guide us to fate? O, pathetic creature! Why you enslave us to Doom!
    Anyways, I think I got to spend some times with girls out there.
    Whenever I think about LOL, I fail to survive.
    Whenever there is access to a computer WHICH I can Download LOL, I fail to survive.
    To the point that I almost missed a CLASS!
    I think the reason I fail to quit games, is because I don't commit, or because I don't take it seriously, for example that I don't invest myself enough in GQ.
    I want to avoid arguments with my parents. They are there to help be quit games, but there are arguments..
    Now, I want to upload a detailed list of all my objectives.
    It is because the number of times I tried to quit, the number of relapses I had so far that made me likely to fail again.
    1. Create a task organizer, a time management scheduler and UPDATE REGULARLY.
    2. Create a to-do list using Eisenhower's method and CROSS OFF STUFF REGULARLY.
    .... To be continued

    Hellooooooooo world!
    I must come back to reality, for it will transform in a total night mare.
    Things have happened at a such quick pace.
    I had several relapses between that period.
    I learned quite a lot of stuff, getting advice from a counselor.
    I noticed 
    I progressed in vain, my results were useless,,,
    RED ALERT!! 
    I haven't gone to gym for centuries!
    But the good thing is, at least I am back to my natural state.
    I'm seeking the Great Lord's help!
    Truely yours,
    TheLight OI

    Only time wasted: waiting for some1 to come.
    The more he achieved greatness. The more he was closer to the holy Spirit.
    So basically here's what I did today.

    -2h Business Conference

    This sentence directs my thinking to the following statement. Games are fun, it's true. But to be a slave for having fun......
    It is not truely a pleasure if your "master" consistently oblige you to "work"
    Life is not a game. Game is part of life. However, certains elements of life can be addictive. (Many examples are art, music, and books) 
    Shall we consider gaming as a passion? 
    Heavens, no! 
    Gaming is a S0ul stealer, a energy thief, an destructive Devil....

    It sure is dangerous. No doubt. But saying it could affect your future relationship...
    Yep. Anything that's stimulates us are mostly depreciative influences.

    Good evening.
    As it is a Dark Day of Augustus 20XX, I am currently writing this.
    There is called the cognitive biasis which lead us consistently into the deep well of gaming....
    The great knight said: There must a be a way to channel Positive Energy!
    We must no rely on ourselves, he said. We must admit our mistakes, leading us to victory!
    One must master himself to attain discipline. Then he can go to the next level.
    Our minds are often controled by desires, or needs. Hunger is a desire greater than water, however drinking is more essential than eating.
    We must be strong to than the temptations's power, for we shall lighten our way to-morrow.
    May our S0uls leave in Peace! We must me clever and ingenious in our way of thinking, the perfect strategy to win battles.
    No fear of failure, no moment of regret!
    Believe in the mighty God of Wisdom, and we shall succeed!

    I start to see a pattern...
    If I consistently write my daily journal, there fore I will gain results. It's a routine, a chore, a task that you HAVE to do everyday
    Unfortunately I had my relapse (not my first one) on LOL when I started playing 四国军棋 (strategy game like stratego)
    My first fail since two weeks.
    Anyways I'm making searches on habit tracker and stuff. Life style RPG (NOT a game) to improve productivity.
    I'm currently searching ways to make some cash. If anyone have suggestions, please comment.
    All that happened when somebody suggested me a book called Rich Dad Poor Dad.
    And I'm thinking (never gamble, never smoke weed) of investing in stocks to make profit.
    Other ideas i'm having is tech biz. I have over 200+ ideas.  Like i said before, music and tech  is my life + i'm studying in Econ
    My desire to be famous is also diminished.
    About my state of mind: i noticed how my mood changes (i get more irritable), my concentration fells, as well as my mental skills after only 3-4h of gaming! remembers, GAMING IS LIKE A PRETTY GIRL 
    I need stay active. And life is all about balance. The key to success.
    When you are motivated, you forget about those dirty games.
    And by the time I writing this, I know hanging out with friends IS a waste of time when you are in university or when you want to develop a business in the summer instead of working for min wage. I have enough friends for now.
    Is it normal to have a lot of sexual thoughts? I mean.....
    And also, I need to have a schedule. especially for sleep
    Your capacity to resist it's like an wall of life. Everyday, it melts a little bit. The thin ice will break depending on your thoughts and mood. That's why keeping a journal is the perfect way to track your daily dangers and traps.
    I multi task a lot. Is it good?
    And what a wonderful community is GQ!

    Hello everyone, after two weeks no posting, here's what I have done
    Installed some really useful apps: My Effectiveness (Productivity), Wallet (Money management) and some other
    Met some people that could be useful for my career (I compose music)
    HEY, you know what??
    I stopped gaming (well that excludes chess, PoGo, and other) LoL (my worst enemy) for at least 12 consecutive days!
    I just have to keep my laptop away for now. But I don't know how to prevent myself from downloading LoL again.
    Be4, I've tried may things (anti-website, DSL..) until I realized the best way is self control.
    Like Cam and Tyrone (a fellow I met here on GQ) said, replace gaming by something as exciting, as challenging that will Detox you and give you vital energy. Resplendish the Soul...
    I now have two part time jobs (sales and MLM), thinking of becoming a piano teacher. Getting more stuff involved with music. Promote myself. Send email to orchestra, organise events, perform in concerts
    My ultimate Goals is in the tech field
    I now study Economics at Concordia University
    By the way here is my website to all my compositions: musescore.com/delaite
    I also draw manga (multi-interest dude that I am) : http://thelight01.deviantart.com/
    I love history, Dramas, poetry, geography, philosophy, technology, landscape
    And much much more
    Goals: making an action movie, GURLS,  kung-fu, books, stocks, programming, Chinese, Writing
    Always go to the gym...

    I was not serious enough. Ok... let's get some real stuff done.
    Let's consider today day one. (although I stopped playing two days ago)
    I read Cam's article and definitely agree with it. I chatted with one of GameQuitter's members and he gave me advice.
    Now I have to struggle on my own.
    Day one: the thought of LoL came to my head like a butterfly when I pictured Veigar (if you don't know that, it's ok) with his dark matter doing massive AOE damage. The thing is, with games like League of Legends, you know once the enemy team goes to your nexus, the game finishes. That's why you are bored again. Then you have the feeling to choose another champion, with makes the game highly addictive.
    But what is more attractive is the game mechanisms. I love life steal. I **n love it. The colors green makes it appealing for the eyes. When you see the red bar dropping, you litteraly in ectasy.
    It is like a emotional roller coaster indeed. Have you ever experience your heart bumping when you're like about to be ganked?
    It's time to get out of the vicious cycle.
    Right now, I neeeeed to go to exercice. I have a full year Platinum membership that allows me to access to all gyms in my city. It's a matter of will power.
    Instead of focusing on the game and the time spent on it, now we understand it, Quitting Games is about thoughts and mindgames (not that kind of game..). It is psychological and researches has been made about it. So why not read some?
    I greatly suggest reading books like How to Win Friends and Influence People and Rich Dad Poor Dad. They are among the best self help books written.
    That is for now....
