Day 58

Been having a lot more depression that usual. It's from the normal sources. Loneliness,money worries, family issues. Watching too much youtube.

Chart shows that I'm going too bed to late.

Day 59

Ok I'm sure I'm just addicted to youtube now instead of video games. I feel the same way about it as I did the video games.

Day 61

Been reading up on how to start an online business, save money, business ideas, ect. Having a lot of trouble with analysis

 

I feel pretty terrible right now. the past few days have been filled with very high highs and very low lows. But throughout it all I have not had any irresistible craving for games. I want to play games but it's optional.  I don't have to play them. I'm pretty proud of myself for that.

 

Today make 45 days of no games.

 

I just came to a realization. Dealing with life long depression is a lot of work. But I've been battling my faniacal problems. I'm still programming and I have not relapsed into gaming again. I've really been beating myself up for doing a good job. That's something I need to look out for.

45 days is impressive, keep it up.  It seems like you are doing a good job of tracking your time, which helps inform your decisions.  That is the essence of improvement.  Are you keeping track of what you are grateful for anywhere?

Day 62

Had unsually strong urge to game triggered by youtube. But not nearly as bad as it was in the past. I'm doing a better job of monitoring youtube time.

I have not. This may not be a bad idea.

Day 65

 

Been doing a LOT of study on forming an online business, and I took a few, shaky, baby steps. I noticed that my depression has dropped of tremendously.

Day 67

Did a lot more research and I'm very close to coming up with a solid business plan. I'm feeling pretty proud.

I realized that I may not be able to go back into gaming, even in moderation, since this would take critical time away from the business.

Third time is the charm... or whatever time it needs to be! Keep at it. For me it was the eighth.

Day 71

One of the things I've been agonizing over for the past 6 months was my decision to quit my job. I'm trying to get my startup out of the mud now.

I just found out that the company I used to work for has just been bought out, and I would have lost my job in the merger.

I kind of knew, ok I was absolutely positive, that this would happen soon. We had a layoff, followed by constant threats of layoffs, and the heads of the company kept making outrageous price cutting demands. 

I feel a lot better about quitting. It led me to realize that I needed to quit gaming. And it made me realize the importance of having control over my income.

Day 73

I made took the first steps in getting my online business going. I have never been so proud of myself in my life. 

I feel like the lessons I learned from quitting games and my long term depression has thought me valuable lessons that have put me on the path I'm on.

Day 77

Have been working full steam on the business. I saw a  farming game that I would have been interested in, in the past, but it seems like the game is a huge waste of time now.
