    Im back

    Day 4-5, Still doing well, still wasting a lot of time reading and just hanging out (have schoolwork to do, as well as people to talk to that i keep putting off) No progress on the job hunt so far, but with the climate right now, its to be expected. Have a wonderful day people, John

    Im back

    Day 2-3, Havent broken any of my rules yet, and have been spending more time with my brothers and parents. I find this statement to be very truthful, and its the type of pain that takes some time to burn through. My issue was the slow but sure dissolving of my time being dedicated towards gaming, and the resulting depression (which started as unnoticeable, but over the past months has grown out of hand). Last time I had quit until September, when I switched careers due to a lay off and had more free time on my hands. Im hoping to get back into work shortly here, and hope that correcting my sleep schedule during these other times will help once demand returns! Thanks for commenting and welcoming me back @BooksandTree´╗┐s and @Captain_Pilz always great to be reminded how welcoming it is ­čÖé John

    Im back

    Although not the best idea, Im likely to curl up and watch a show or something tonight rather then spend the time doing something creative. Tomorrow starts the arduous process of building new habits, finding new hobbies, and learning to love life as it is

    Im back

    Hey everyone, Im back. I decided to see if I could game in moderation starting about 4 months ago, and it turned into a full on relapse. I ended up back on a team, and I quit today. I feel bad about giving my friends short notice, but know I need to go on with my life, and that without the distraction of gaming, Ill be better off. I have no idea how this is going to go, and as its a fresh wound (quitting 20 minutes ago) i know it will be hard. This time, Im moving forwards, changing passwords and giving away accounts I can to others who will use them. John-
  5. Day 38? Been working heavy hours, volunteered at a boys camp for a week, and generally been sleeping a lot more, also going out a lot. Sorry for posting less often then mayhaps I should, but being able to vent/talk every once in awhile is still nice. I have been slowly improving at work, moving faster and faster until i wear myself out by Friday, then I recover over the weekend. Hoping to be used to the labour before fall arrives in full force. Johno back again ?
  6. Day 12- 16 Worked out of time all week, was pretty good, but leaves you tired, practicing waking up real early today since I leave once again on the 2 hour drive. Spent the day hanging out with my friend and volunteering a bit which was awesome! Today looks to be involved with packing and buying groceries for the week Life is weird folks John
  7. Day 10-11 Meal prep family time and then work, lots of driving today Packing because im driving 2 hours tomorrow to start work at 7, will be in a hotel the rest of the week Kinda excited kinda just normal tbh Cya soon ?
  8. Day 8-9 Worked out at the camp which was pretty cool, we built a cage and fixed up a deck. Went over to another friends house after work on Friday and had a couple beers/talked until 1 am. Woke up about 9 this morning and then hung out for a little prior to leaving again and finishing up out work. Heading to my cousins for supper in a few minutes here (have some paperwork to complete for next week to do first). Feeling pretty good, but a little lonely. ?
  9. Day 7 Work was once again pretty enjoyable, encountered many burrs today, and as is normal had the same lunch as always and grabbed Booster Juice on my way home from work (9-10 hours of physical labour + protein sounds like a good idea to me). My brother is having friends over for a BBQ today, and it's kind of fun to be around. I'm cleaning the basement because my grandparents are coming over tomorrow for a few days, and they'll be using it. Plan on helping a friend build something for a camp that I volunteer at tomorrow after work, and then we'll probably hang out and have a few beer afterwards ? Peace ?
  10. Day 6 Work was good, my meal prep is starting to grow on me. Bought new gloves today which is fun ? Im not sure what to talk about on here rn since mostly I just wake up early work all day, eat supper with fam shower and go to bed Maybe the weekend will be more interesting for y'all John
  11. Day 3-5 Migraine week ended on Sunday, and I went to lunch-ish and a movie with a friend. Monday I started my new job, the 12 hour days are nice, but take a lot of time Today it decided to rain which wasn't fun, but otherwise, it was good ? Cya later guys
  12. Day 2 This is day 3 of migraine week, and as such have been lethargic all day. I also ended up sleeping through my alarms, and missed a hike because of it. It would have been a good opportunity to spend time with friends, as well as say goodbye to a couple who are leaving on Monday. Going to a movie with my family tonight ? Movie was good, realizing post that I'd never submitted this. John
  13. I'm back! Starting an actual career job now, and seeing how well taking 90 days off gaming at the start of the last one went, I'm doing it again ? This time I'm also going to be looking into my diet, cutting out extra fats and carbs, and switching processed sugar like pop for natural sugars like fruit. That along with re-trying to complete my daily prayers and use the gift these detox's are to build good habits again. Looking forwards to talking with you all again, John

    Day 25 Just got off work. Ended up sleeping almost all day after staying up too late on social media the night before. Missed an opportunity to help my mom out and to do some repair work on my van that I have to do tomorrow now ? Will do better tomorrow I am not a gamer

    We continue

    Day 22 Weird day, worked night shift last night and didn't get to sleep until about 4 am. Then I drove my sister to her piano exam at 8 am and napped in the car. Went to work again at 4 and was supposed to close, but got told by my manager that they didn't actually need me anymore so got off at 6. Volunteered with a boys club until 9 and then got home I am not a gamer
