    Daily Journal - Samon

    Hello everyone, today I saw this forum and I knew directly it can help me to get rid with my problem. Is it just a problem or an addiction? I dont know and I dont really care. Im not the person who is scared to say he is addicted to something like gaming. I am simply not sure, but its not important I think. I read the sticked thread, templates I can use. Etc. I will see whether I use one of that in the future. But first I want to tell you something about my current situation. I play since I was a kid. Started with offline games, went to online MMOs soon. I played much, even as a kid. But it was never such a problem, because you had parents who kept you away from gaming too much. So the years went on, and I kept playing games. All those games didnt make me really addicted. It was fun, but nothing serious. But then I started with League of Legends. First I just played it regulary. But as soon as I hit 30, so I could play ranked games(competitive games), I started to play hardcore, whole days... This was still not the big problem I have today. It got more serious when Lol was more like a way to get quick fun, without putting work in it. Im not a native speaker, so I cant express myself that good, so excuse me if my sentences feel a bit "not beauty". You know, everything in life is based to putting work in something to get something lucky out. School(Grades), Job(Not only bur Money), Sports(healty, good feeling after it) etc. But in Lol its different. Sitting on your ass start the queue and the show goes on. It doesnt matter how good your are in Lol, at the end you get matched with people who are on your level, so you will never ever win more games than 6 out of 10(average). So basically you have 50/50 Chance to get the victory screen at the end of a game and so you get a nice feeling without doing shit. Just some mouseclicks. Lol is no fun for me. The only fun is to get those victory screens, carry a game etc. but as I said you cant win every game, so 50% of the time you feel bad. So I knew pretty fast that this game is bad for me. I tried to quit a lot, I forced my friends to quit this game, but no one could. I feel like a big problem is that I dont have alternatives to the game. My whole day is basically at the computer, so if i dont play, i watch youtube etc. so also unproductive things. My friends are also addicted to games, so they are no alternatives. I think there will be enough time to tell you more about my story. To make it short for now: Today I played some round of league, tilted as usual much and googled lol addiction. I saw guys with literally my story. They gave me energy so I try to quit with this game again. This time forever. I uninstall it today(again). this should be it for now. I will try to write something everyday! Edit: I want to add that Goals to reach: 1. 90 Days without LoL, Lol Videos on Youtube 2. Lowing computer Usage in general(need to think how many hours I need to keep me updated and to do my work on it) 3. Practicing my instrument every day

    Hey everyone! i just wanted to give a quick updated: I think I am somewhere at day 105 or so. However I made it through 90 days And as a result of that I am proud to say I made it. Usually I say whenever i achieve something 'it wasnt a big deal' so I forbid myself to be happy. But I want to let this end step by step. So gz to myself for making it!! OF COURSE its not the end there is still so much I need to improve. But little Steps are important, little goals. I try to update this again more often, I will see however I am also happy that the people I follow are still on track too and give their best!! Thats all for today, see you tomorrow guys

    Anonymous Journal

    Hello, sometimes I see journal entrys of people here, which contain, that they dont want to tell XY in detail because they want to stay anonymous. I also ask sometimes myself 'should I write that in a public forum?' so I wonder: How you guys think about that? Do you want to stay anonymous here? Do you take care what you write here and what not? greets

    72/90 without any LoL Content | Played Instrument: Yes! | Coding: Yes! | Learned for driving license: Yes! | Writing in my Journal: Yes, right now! good day overall I think. 72 days so far. Tbh im mostly proud of the fact I practised now every single day with my instrumemt. The detox itself is of course also nice, but you all know detox is good, but its even better if You do other productive things while not gaming! What I want to improve: Keep up the work routine for university. Finishing now in some weeks the theoretical driving license test. Sport routine. And I really want to learn french. Not really urgent, more reading some french text, watching vids etc no pressure.. Those are just things where is room for improvment step by step.. I know I am far away to become what I want to be, but its ok. No pressure, no doubt myself if something doesnt goes perfect. Its important I improve, not how fast. A bit is enough and even if not keep on track so yea ill read some journals and call it a day for today Thats all for today, see you tomorrow guys

Had again a long talk with my friend who quitted games too. It always relax me and keeps me on track, although our relationship was really not always good like now. However after those years, he is probably the one you are miss the most (when your family is there). Yea rest of the day did most of my tasks. Not much coding just checked somw things really quick, but its k helped also my bro with his application, i enjoy meaningful things like that Thats all for today, see you tomorrow guys

Sometimes These thoughts still come, its not like I am near to Game again, But yea. Today I listend some Music and usually Music Pumps me up to do my goals. But in the past I didnt use this Motivation. Instead i kept listening, watching things which motivated me. I wanted to be Perfect, but did not much for it. Today I dont want this Fake Motivation, i know its ok to be Not Perfect ad Long äs you improve Yourself. Thats all and its good!

    CR - When do I level up outside?

    Yes, try to clarify more goals. No gaming is good but mindless surfing gives you also those good feelings which you dont want to lose. Thats why you keep grinding in front of the display. I also recommend to put this time to a minimum. Maybe not could turkey, because you need alternatives. Things you can do instead of doing that. Otherwise this will definetely not work. Wish you the best

    JustTom's Journal 2: Summer Edition

    Hey man, I think everyone understands you here. You simply dont want to face the problems, or start with your tasks, because you know it is "hard". But isnt it even harder to keep playing and saying everyday "this is the last day of playing"? Stop the "tomorrow i will start". I know, you relapsed and its easier to staying in the relapse than being on track again. I mean, you probably think "3 weeks gaming, one more day is ok" or maybe even not. But you are here, you want to start again, so just start man. Ok you cant imagine how good your life would be if you stood clean for 90days. But I can promise you one thing: in those next 90 days you will either say "damn i still dont know how good my life would have been" or "hell yea I made it and it feels good". So dont look back, you maybe lost this detox but this doesnt mean you lost the whole intention to stop gaming and starting to be productive. Go ahead open the new journal - start again. And ill look forward to your daily journal entrys. You can do it man!

    59/90 without any Lol Content | Played Instrument: Yes! | Coding: Yes! | Learned for driving license: Yes! | Writing in my Journal: Yes, right now! good day overall I think. Did my tasks again pretty fast. After that I just closed the computer till evening(3pm-9pm) that was nice. I feel more and more when I am at the computer "hmm what can I do?". But I know the longer i sit in front of the display I will feel again like I want do sit more infront of it and so on. So Ill try to simply close it, whenever I dont want or I have an alternative. You can always look something up etc. but you need to stop yourself while doing that. yea not mich else to say... Still cold, cant go outside much. Today just to buy some food. reading some journals as always and call it a day for today Thats all for today, see you tomorrow guys
