    Let's see if I can get out of this mess

    Day 2/90 done. Didn't sleep all too good and woke up really late. In a bad mood all day. Went for a walk and now trying to get to bed early. Meh.

    90 days.

    I was just looking into blocking software. Coldturkey blocks sites you want from everything, and you can get StayFocused for chrome. It's such a habit to go to those sites without even thinking. So if that's an option for you maybe try it.

    Thanks. Tried to stay out of my apartment for most of the day, and managed to loan all the books I need. Other than that didn't get much done. Cleaned my kitchen at least, so I guess that's something. Better than playing anyway. Pretty long day, but went surprisingly well all things considered. Realized today all my music is streamed, so that no-internet plan took quite a hit. Need to figure something out for that. Guess I could just block youtube, twitch and the like completely. Oh well, 1/90 done.
  4. Things have finally got so bad I need to make some drastic changes. Went back to university after a long long break, and messed it up completely. I was supposed to be graduating right now, but after talking to the student councelor this week the earliest I can get everything done is by next June - if I don't fail anything. And I knew this of course, but still just played 14+ hours a day, stressed out, enjoying none of it. Tried removing all my games earlier this year. That worked for a few weeks. But then I just browsed the internet, watched twitch, youtube, imgur... anything but what I was supposed to. Then I thought "just play in the evenings, it'll be a nice reward for getting some work done". That worked for a day, by the second day I was playing right when I woke up and never stopped. It's the strangest thing, I know I'm not really enjoying gaming, haven't in a long time, but I just keep doing it. Been reading this forum for a few weeks, and reddits stopgaming and nosurf and trying to come up with solution that will actually work for me. Moderation is right out, I just can't help myself at this point. I feel like sitting in front of the computer for at least 8-10 hours a day, and even up to 16 for years and years, has just wrecked my ability to think and concentrate. Even while playing I'm watching twitch or youtube. Can't watch a movie without browsing the net or looking at my phone. Reading a book is a struggle. Can't get rid of my computer, but I think I need to get on by without the Internet. That way I'll only be at the computer when I need to write or code. So I think i'll remove my ethernet cable, write down what I need to look up on the net during the day and then turn on mobile net for that, once a day. Part of me is saying this is too much at once, but I just think I need a big break from all these screens and entertainment. I'll regret this tomorrow morning , but this needs to happen. Can't go on like this. So, I'm committing to 90 days. No more excuses. I'm sure it will suck, but it's so bad already I doubt it can get much worse. Anyway, plan for today: delete all games, steam and battle.net. Delete twitch account and remove all useless youtube subs. Clear my phone from games and useless apps. Tomorrow I need to map and write down all the work I need to get done this month, and try to get started on some of it. Also need to start thinking how I want to fill up my free time. But that'll come later, just need to get this started. Tomorrow is day 1.
