I put these two days together because it felt like a bad low-budget remake of groundhog day. Traded one bad addiction for another one and spent both feeling sorry for myself while destroying myself.

Adventure Log:

Woke up late(10:30am) instead of my usual 5:30 am-6:00 am. Went to the gym and had an interesting conversation. It was a nice change of pace because we I go to the gym I usually keep to myself. We had many things in common such as being reserved and anti-social in high school and being late-boomers. He talked about practicing conversation with everyone and being patient with self-growth. I put this off a lot using excuses such as "I need to focus on my own development", "My studies are more important than relationships", etc. My main takeaways were try to approach more people and connect with more people because my social skills are still lacking.

Engaging in your communities will make a big difference in your life. I used to go to the gym and stay to myself too, but now I enjoy it a lot more ever since I started to meet others who go. :)

Adventure Log:

Typical Sunday. Nothing Productive going on, ZEROOO. Week 1 review!

I survived, but I did not thrive! I abstained from playing video games and porn but I continued to stream videos and browse the web. Trading one addiction for another  instead of properly replacing the bad habits. I need to find more hobbies and or meaningful work to do.

+Abstinence

-No direction/plan

-Slacking off

-Lack of consistency

Cheers man. When you feel a strong craving get out of the house. Go for a walk.

Check out the Habitica App for android or ios, could work for your style.

You are doing great, mate! When I had cravings, it helped me coming to the forum and reading some journals.

What if you changed your achievements section from the things you want to stop doing for things you want to do?

That's still better than quitting video games to snort cocaine lol. 

IMO videos and browsing the internet is less addictive than video games and porn, and I would consider that progress - of course ideally we want to quit videos and internet browsing all together. I swear, some of the sites like youtube must be investing huge amounts of money to figure out how to make you continuously view videos for as long as possible.  

Good job on working on your social skills. 

Stay strong man!

YOOO! Thank you, I'll check it out.

YOOO! Thank you, I agree. I've been focusing too much on quitting. The more I think about quitting, the more I want to go back to my old ways.

Day 7. If you can do one week, you can do any week!

YOOO! Thank you. Same old sh*t just a different day. :)

YOOO! Thank you. Interesting you say that, I'm going to be reading the book, Hooked next. I always wondered why certain things catch on and what makes them so appealing such as Pokemon Go.

What are some other things you can do together instead?
