    Today is 30 days Game Free 👍
    It hasn't been easy, and I've had good days as well as bad days but I haven't let my emotions get the better of me. Since I quit gaming I've had a lot more free time and have had to try and manage my time more effectively. Some days were more productive than others and some days I didn't feel like doing anything, but it's a work in progress. 
    I will keep working towards the 90 day detox and then to go beyond that to quit gaming forever. I will take everything one step at a time.  
    Thanks to everyone for your continued support. 😊

    @Mhyrion You're absolutely right, gaming is low risk and high reward for the brain. It's an escape mechanism so we can forget about our problems even for a moment. 
    You got this, you can do it!!!

    @Mhyrion Keep at it, I know that you can do it...You've been a great support for me throughout it all, through the good times and the bad ones. As @KevinV1990 said it isn't pathetic that you still need videos, this addiction that we're all fighting is a constant work in progress.
    This journey is a long one but it doesn't matter how long it takes you to get there, but how you get there.  Not everyone completes their journey in the same way, or at the same pace. The important thing is that you keep fighting and clawing your way to the finish. No matter how many times you get knocked down, get right back up and keep pressing forward.

    Day 26
    I've been doing good, this is the longest that I've been able to go without gaming. I have more free time now and I'm trying to be more productive with my time and I've had some success but it's a constant work in progress.
    What I plan to do is to try and go back to what I did before which is to plan out my days, so I can keep track of where my time is being spent. Also when the weather starts to get better for walking, I will get back into a routine of walking.
    Right now I feel like I'm gaining momentum but I won't get too ahead of myself and continue to take things one day at a time.

    @LuminousBean Though I'be been able to stop the gaming streams after a short time, I still find myself watching other videos which also can take up a lot of time. It's a constant work in progress to limit the amount of time I spend browsing the internet. 
    As to what I'm doing to support my life changes, I'm not really doing anything special, just taking it one day at a time.

    Day 23
    It was a pretty good day but I did have some moments throughout the day that I had the urge to game but I didn't. 
    For the past few days  I've been really lacking motivation in doing much of anything and I've been wasting a lot of time. I guess I'm just going through a bit of a rough patch right now, but I have to keep fighting through it. 
    Today I did watch a few gaming related videos but then I realized that it was only going to make things harder so I stopped after only 1 or 2 videos. YouTube is a good service but it also can waste a lot of time. 
    No matter how hard it is, I'll keep working towards my first goal which is to complete the 90 day detox.

    Today is day 21 Game Free, it hasn't been easy but I've been fighting hard. There have been days that haven't been productive as I would have liked to had been but the main thing is that I haven't played any games. With that being said I have watched some game related videos but strangely enough they didn't cause me to want to game. 
    I know that it still won't be a walk in the park but I'm determined to keep going this time. In the past I feel that I may have given in a little too easy but I'm going to keep fighting. I'm going to try and remain positive and also to try and be more productive each day. 
    @Mhyrion I agree with what you said in one of your previous comments, if I can do it one day, I can do it any day.
    After 21 days I feel as if I can keep pushing forward but I'm not going to become too overconfident and I'm just going to take it the way I should, which is one day at a time.
     I've decided though that I'm not going to do a daily journal but I will post updates from time to time. 
    Hope you all have a great day and keep fighting to reach your goals.

    2 weeks today😊
    My day has been pretty good, it has been a pretty relaxing day. I never really had any urges for gaming but I did have some moments where I felt a little down but I didn't let it get the better of me. 
    I'm going to continue to fight to reach my first goal of completing the 90 day detox.
    Keep fighting to reach your goals

    Today is day 12 that I've been Game Free and its been going pretty well. So far today I've had no urges to play video games, the thought hasn't even entered my mind. It seems as if I'm picking up momentum but I'm not going get too ahead of myself. 
    I know that the journey is going to be a long one but I know that it's possible for me to be successful.

    It has been just about 2 weeks since I walked away from Gamequitters and I've had some time to try and sort out things. I did have a temporary relapse but I was able to take back control. I restarted my game free life on Feb 26 so as of later today it will be 10 days.
     I really want to be successful this time around  but I'm not going to get too ahead of myself and I'm going to take it one day at a time. I realize that this isn't going to be easy but I know that it'll be possible.
    Thanks again for your continued support and also for not giving up on me when I had given up on myself.

    I've been really thinking as to what I should do and I've decided that I'm going to step away from Gamequitters. I feel that this may be best at the moment so that I can prioritize some of the things I'm dealing with and focus on those first.
    Sorry that I wasn't as supportive as I should be, but I hope that you'll all continue to fight to reach your goals. 
    Even though my time here was short I appreciate all the support that I was given. Thanks for everything and maybe one day I may return.
