  1. Thanks for the support, giblets! You've pretty much summarized the exact way I felt when dealing with people. Even friends in my "gaming group" were hard to deal with, as I was always yelling at someone to get to the checkpoint. I'll do my best to keep you all updated!
  2. I'm Yousef B, and I'm a gaming/ internet addict. How addicted? Well, if I could summarize each day from the past two months, it would look a little like this: Wake upbrowse redditwatch youtubeClassesgamingbrowse the internetClassesmore gamingHomework (usually at the last minute)Even more gamingGot to sleepTo be exact, of the 126 hours of the week in which I'm awake, I spend 20-40% of it gaming/ browsing the internet. But why am I interested in stopping? Well, to put it briefly, I want to improve myself, but my addiction keeps getting in the way. With big responsibilities, like scholarship applications or my steadily dropping grades, My addiction will only serve to hinder me. On the other hand, my own aspirations and interests are being put to the side to play another game on steam while telling myself that I can "do it tomorrow." To top things off, I'm also pretty socially awkward and prone to anger issues, but gaming has only furthered my personality flaws, as I'm always easily frustrated and depressed after playing any multiplayer games in my abundance of "free time". To be honest, I haven't hit rock bottom. Far from it in fact, as a majority of my grades are A's, and I know how to kick into gear when I really have to. But I feel as if I'm wasting my potential, and a lot of the problems with myself could be solved if I only took the time to stop gaming or internet surfing and actually confront them. I can't wait to finally break this old habit and replace it with more life-fulfilling and positive ones! I wish you all the best of luck on your journeys, as I begin to start my own today.
