  1. Hi how's it going? I've quit Gaming for about two years now and I hope I can help. My journey started when I felt like I was wasting all my time on video games in general. First playing RE2 then this PS4 game then that one. Then I stumbled upon Fortnite. I played all day. Like 14 hours everyday for 5 months at least. My parents were so frustrated with me. I was frustrated with them and myself as well. My study life sucked, my social life sucked and I tried to fix it by connecting with other people on Fortnite. I think the main reason I was playing was social connection and the l
  2. Hello everyone. I joined this forum to quit gaming and wrote in my journal for around 14 days. I must admit, Gamequitters Helped me a lot. Thank you all. And now here I am, in 2020, haven't played for at least 10 months. I stopped watching gaming trailers/streams etc all together. Now I'm going to the gym and doing powerlifting every other day. I used to run every day too until I was too busy but I'm going to start again. My sleep is also back in normal. I sleep full 8 hours from 9:30 pm to 5:30 am. I finally feel healthy. Now let's look back at 1 year ago: Now my 2019 Playstation Wrap-
  3. The power of habits Atomic habits 7 habits of highly effective people Bryan Tracy books(it's about self-improvement, though) The compound effect by Darren Hardy Best ways to track your habits: Use an app like "Loop Habit tracker" For Android and be sure to use a reminder and enable the sticky notification feature. "Goal Tracker" is also a good app for Android. You might want to check out other apps on your own. Use a notebook. It's going to take more time.
  4. OK don't think bad about yourself. I just wanted 2 things to happen with this action: 1. Thinking bad about video games which makes them less enjoyable and removes the "Reward" part of the habit or at least makes it more subtle. 2.Taking this matter seriously. Most people who are addicted to something don't quit just because they don't take it seriously. They don't want to come out of their comfort zone or take any action. That's why sometimes you have to talk to yourself and make your EGO feel the pain.
  5. Hi, that was a real introduction. It's gonna help us help you (I know I suck at writing.) First of all, try to decide if you're going to quit cold turkey or step by step and slowly. Congratulations, you already have a goal(Going to that school of yours). So you want to focus on that goal and ways to achieve it. Start tracking your time; Finding out how you spend those 24 hours will help you a lot. What do you usually do when you're not playing video games? If you want to quit cold turkey=> You have to find a way to make it impossible to play. Don't use your willpower. So many peo
  6. Hi Richard. I'm glad to meet you. What platform do you usually play your games? Where do you play video games at your house? Are most of your friends gamers? What do you usually do when you don't play video games? What do you want to achieve 1 year from now? What do you want to achieve 5 years from now? What about 10 years from now? Who do you want to be in your life? How do your parents usually describe you? And why the hell are you still living with your parents when you're 25? (Sorry just kidding....) What are your hobbies other than playing video games? And how healthy do you think you are
  7. Hello everyone. the reason why I haven't been updating this post was that I was busy and my Internet was blocked... So in the last two months, I completely changed my lifestyle... I started jogging every day. Sleeping 3 hours a day. Studying 10-14 hours a day. And not playing video games or watching ANY movies or youtube. Here's what I've learned. When you want to quit a bad habit the best way to do so is to make it impossible to do it. That's what I did, I used block site on chrome to block Youtube, Instagram and Twitter and also all movie-related websites. I blocked Blocksite using a c
