  1. Thanks Lea! I am really happy about you that you haven't lost hope like I did. 13/90 Long term goals: Quit gaming/internet surfing Learn german language Feel comfortable talking to people and find gf Find a hobby I am passionate about Get a summer body Find a job and move out from parents Short term goals: Prepare for exam which consists of 12 parts untill next thursday (12/12) ✔ Return the uniform back to paramedics Go to sleep before 00:00 Visit friends basement gym Force myself to study for a hour daily without breaks (it will help to increase my atention) Meet friends or new people What happened today? Ahh, it is getting harder and harder each day to restrain myself... I am starting to dream playing, thinking a hour daily will be nothing wrong and other bad thoughts are coming... I am scared, I fear I might get back into playing, because temptation is very large... Stress from exam and people, really pushed me into that direction... Finally, i got week off from medicine school, but wait... without studying... what I will be doing with all that free time??? Anyways, to sum up this day, exam is over(I would say not too hard, but also not that easy, might get about 70%), talked to old friend, who is studying psychology, she said, that gaming addiction is incurable 😞, it is permanent struggle for all life, also started to fear again with my fathers lifestyle(smoking, drinking, obesity, sedetary life, but somehow no serious illness) and for last... argued with the new date girl. I have made a mistake, because I started to rush everything. I don't know why I did this immature move, but it scared her a bit and I have lost my self confidence... Maybe I am not ready for this. How I feel? Depressed
  2. @Doug Welcome to the community! I am glad that you finally decided to leave gaming and have a wonderful person in your life who will support you to overcome this terrible thing.
  3. @Can'tComeUpWithANickname Welcome to the community! First thing to do, I would suggest is to try finding a hobby, because without gaming and movies you will be spending lots of time on youtube or mindless internet surfing
  4. Hello, I have seen many people take no masturbation challange and I wonder why? Just because it works with dopamine-reward system? We gain dopamine on daily by doing almost everything. Eating tasty food - dopamine. Being with person you love? Dopamine. Even completing workout? Dopamine. Excessive and in huge amounts of dopamine, can damage this system (like it does in addiction), but if you are not "playing" with yourself every hour, you should be good. The first thing I learned studying about male genitals, that ejaculation reduces prostate cancer. Seems pretty good thing, because prostate cancer is the 3rd most common cancer around the globe. Of course, doing it 3 times a day might be too much, but going 90 days and more without it? Can't find any benefits. Feel free to debate over this, because I might be missing vital information here.
  5. @killua145 Welcome! I am medical student myself and believe me, it is worth all the pain, created by studying huge amount of hours. I would suggest deleting every game, so you would avoid temptation to play games. Also, start journal in this forum, it will help you to lay off feelings, make goals and track your progress.
  6. @jsup Welcome! I feel exactly same as you. Lonely, scared, afraid of living real life. Been fighting with gaming thoughts for couple of days, searching for reasons to play, but I am holding. I have fully decided myself to stop this alternative reality world. Yes, people support helps to fight this addiction, but all the hard work needs to come from you. They just can show a way to go, but only you can take it. Believe me, it is bumpy road with many roadblocks, but in the end it is all worth more than anything. Your life goal/purpose is to defeat this monster called addiction...
  7. @arq loved it, even though, i am not christian (but not either atheist) @NanoSalah liked the one with country music style, but couldn't find playlist (my german not that great 😁)
  8. 11/90 Long term goals: Quit gaming/internet surfing Learn german language Feel comfortable talking to people and find gf Find a hobby I am passionate about Get a summer body Find a job and move out from parents Short term goals: Prepare for exam which consists of 12 parts untill thursday (8/12) Return the uniform back to paramedics Go to sleep before 00:00 ✔ Visit friends basement gym Force myself to study for a hour daily without breaks (it will help to increase my atention) Meet friends or new people ✔ What happened today? I was out for couple of days, but not because i relapsed. I studied hard for these days, 10 plus hours and felt to tired even to check on what is happening around. Today was kind of a special day, I went to neurosurgery group meeting, even thou I didn't say a word, I still feel proud of myself for going out. In the end of the day, I met interesting girl on dating app. She studies veterinary and is active camper(this could be a key for myself to become one). Seems like we have many things in common, but one thing worries me, that she admited being often cold and never loved a guy. Hope to be first and last lover for her! How I feel? Very tired, but happy for having crush on someone again
  9. @Lea ohh, good old I will survive 😁 plus noticed you are really into korean singers. Have you ever thought learning korean language? @spacemonk liked Plini song, but metal song maybe was too hard for me. Whats up with you germans always into metal songs? 😁 @katsudo19 saw Johnny cash in your list, i knew i am going to like your songs. Try the original version, made by nine inch nails. @Philipp left you for last, because I stopped checking your list after Yatao -Prag... That song is fucking awseome! And you said don't expecting anything from it 😂. Smashing replay button for 30th time! Wish it was longer. Anyways, like to hear what other people also listen!
  10. @info-gatherer hmm, the answer really depends on you. You should never run away from your problems, but try to face it or they will be following you for. But, if I was in that position, i think i would quit it, because my current self-esteem is very low.
  11. @Silverlining Congratz! As someone who just started detox, you give me hope that there is a way out of this gripping mess.
  12. Welcome to the community! I would suggest to start a journal, it will help you to track your progress and lay off the emotions. Also, introduce sports in life, it will help you to keep away from gaming. Your main task should be to find a hobby, you truly love doing more than gaming.
  13. Why 1h Fitness per day is not in progress or completed? 😁
  14. I have noticed, that all of my songs are very depressing and mood killers. So, I would like to ask you guys to share any song you are really into now. It can be any kind: from motivational(expecting lots of eminem-till i collapse 😁) to rock music, doesn't matter. Need to refresh my playlist and maybe you guys will find something fitting for you. Plus interested what people are listening around the globe. Put a link or write it down! For example: Macklemore x Ryan Lewis - Otherside (orginal) (been listening for 4 days this song)
  15. 8/90 day Long term goals: Quit gaming/internet surfing Learn german language Feel comfortable talking to people and find gf Find a hobby I am passionate about Get a summer body Find a job and move out from parents Short term goals: Prepare for exam which consists of 12 parts untill next thursday (2/12) Return the uniform back to paramedics Go to sleep before 00:00 Visit friends basement gym Force myself to study for a hour daily without breaks (it will help to increase my atention) ✔ Meet friends or new people What happened today? Damn, fighting this illness is getting extremly hard. Today I barely held myself from gaming, but spend huge amount of time watching tv cop shows. Still i would call today a minor progress, becaue probably it is first saturday in last 6-7 months in which i havent played any video games. Also, studied a bit for exam and thanks to @info-gatherer planned my tomorrow. One last thing, I think i need to start going to actual sport instead home training. Thinking about 3 things: krav maga(mainly for self-defence), karate (mainly for sturdier, athletic body) or gym(mainly for bulkier muscles). All did in the past. Probably i ll choose gym, because other 2 involves groups and my anxiety is over the roof. How I feel? Hopeless
