  1. Damit!!! i hate myself at times...... I was so sure i learned from my previous mistake. 3 weeks i made it with few urges..... searched for something work related on google.....fell over another news post..... a link.....ended up on a twitch stream for Elder scrolls online.... closed it down and got some dinner. next morning i had played 9 hours of the damn game.... right back where i started. GRRRRRR...... and now its been daily for 2 weeks. Why must i fail every time i'm close to a month, its like a i lag the energy to start doing something else for to long and end up dropping back to gaming again.
  2. We need a chrome add on to filter out all banners, posts and news about games. I feel no matter where I go it's screaming games right in my face. YouTube is absolutely terrible at it as well as Facebook. ? Got a long weekend ahead of me, due to holidays. First long weekend after I quit again and it was a long weekend that was the cause of me trying to play a little last time. Will try to stay busy and away from the computer. ?
  3. be careful though, i tried that with GTA V cause i found it boring fast, but it quickly turned from GTA to another game and another and another and then i was back to gaming 15 hours a day. ? I know it can be different from person to person, but for me it was all or nothing, there seemed to be no middle ground.
  4. thanks ? The second time around here i at least know how easy it was to fall back again, before i was sure only an hour gaming wasn't going to hurt. This time around i know there is no such thing as "only an hour". ?
  5. we gotta fight those urges ? Be strong!!!
  6. weeks just fly by. today was the return of the gaming urges though, feel a bit under the weather, 0 energy and then the urges came to slack and play a game. trying to keep it off with watching a movie ? gotta make it.
  7. starting over in, attempty nr 2 ?
  8. oh my, i just realized its been a week already and without any urge to even play. i think before when i was trying to force myself into doing other stuff to pass the time, it didn't work out as planned. Now that i am just going about the day, doing whatever comes up, it feels much less overwhelming. 7 days down, 83 to go.
  9. Thanks ? and good tip.
  10. First attempt seemed to go great, but a dumb decision to try and just play on Sundays, quickly turned in to daily and then all day.... This time I won't get and force myself into new hobbies, which I think was part of me getting bored of it fast. I'll take a day at the time and see what interests present themselves. First focus is cleaning the apartment again, study for drivers licens, which failed and treats got to old due to gaming, so it's back to page 1 and Fitness.
  11. Yaa.... I failed ? Sick, bored, quick peep in a game.... A month later and roughly 6 hours a day, 15-16 in weekends.... Why must I do this to myself... ?
  12. DAY 22 - Time I woke up: 05:00 AM Time I went to sleep yesterday: 11.00 PM Goals:  Making the apartment, presentable again. - In Progress! (pending new furniture) Drivers License - In Progress! Learning French - Getting in better shape - In Progress! Walk at least 6k steps per day 1h Fitness per day Start Playing Golf again Socialize Made a big mistake today, that almost had me reset to Day 0. I ended up logging into a game, in order to transfer a deed to some friends i used to play a game with, in order for them to not lose it, being in the middle of their town area. The transfer was not hard, i did it, logged out and deleted the game again, but all day i have had that damn game in my head, like "could i maybe keep it to just an hour....", missing the feeling of making stuff in the game. baaaaad cravings today and just proves to myself that not even a peep in a game, is a good idea. ?
  13. nice ? thanks for both suggestions.
  14. So gaming took a lot of time, making dinner took a lot of time. So its a no brainer (literally no brain ?) to skip cooking dinner and just order a pizza and keep playing. So not that my brain started booting up again, i need some idea's for healthy meals. But being single i don't really feel like making any huge dinner, when its only myself and standing for an hour cooking for a single meal, is not where my energy level is at yet. So what are / what did you guys make ? ? Any good idea's for "easy" and healthier meals, i hope to find some else then Chicken and rice hehe Gonna try make some more calculated meals, once i get some real work out started, but i gotta start somewhere. hehe
  15. As others said, technology is a big part of the lives we live today. So much is depending on having an internet access and even though its possible to drop it all, it may also limit your abilities to move on to something else. To Avoid gaming, an idea could maybe be to sell the gaming rigs and instead by a smaller PC not meant for gaming, Like a Laptop (non gaming), which basically has a crappy GFX, so its possible to surf and all that, but gaming is more or less impossible at an acceptable quality. It of course don't stop the ability to sit on youtube and other time suckers like that, but its a step in the right direction. I set my browser start page to Gamequitters, not to just keep an eye on things, but to give me a bad feeling if i open a browser ready to youtube or facebook ? i will get Gamequitters in my face and think.. damn right, maybe i shouldn't ? That being said, i think quitting gaming and such, requires that ability to actually have the ability in your reach somehow, to make you fight the urge to jump back into it. Just like a drug addict can quit using drugs, but they will always have the ability to get their hands on it, so they have to not just drop the ability to use, but also fight the urge to fall back into the addiction.
