    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. 😫

    What's cooking ?

    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

    Should we quit everything?

    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.
  6. I think there are a lot of members on here that come and go, many might not stick to quitting and leave after a few days. So like everything else in life, we need to just show ourselves and the more we show, we are willing to work for it, the more "interesting" we will be and the more attention we will get. 🙂 Writing in the Journal felt like a great start for me, it took a bit of posting on other posts and writing my updates and it got more and more attention. I feel now that i post an update and i get a like or a reply, either a question, suggestion or just a positive boost in my progress and even on days when i get no response it just makes me wanting to progress more and post the next day update, to share my progress. 🙂 Keep it up, keep fighting and if you ever feel like you're to isolated on here, feel free to reach out and ask for some helping hands. If it helps you sticking to the quitting, maybe we can even make a small support group on the forum here, helping each other by daily reading up on journal posts and commenting, just to keep eachother going forward. 🙂

    Thanks 🙂 ya the early wake up, have been part of my life for many years, due to work, i do find myself going to bed earlier, like around 10 PM. When i was gaming i had set my "bed time" to be at 10PM...... but it almost always quickly became 11PM....12PM....01AM and then up at 04AM..... terrible days, yawning all day long. i put my french learning a bit on hold, think i took a few to many things on, all at once. So i plan on finishing the drivers license study, before i start with French to really dedicate myself to it. Do wish to up the "getting in better shape" with real fitness in a center and not just at home. But thanks the gaming, im not good with many people around me like that. I feel it's all a competition and that everyone is judging me, for not looking buff already. On one side i know thats not what people thing and most likely no one in the center will even care what i do there, they just do their thing and mind their own business, but even if i tell myself that, i will go there.... sit at the weights or a machine... just see my pulse sky rocket, till i almost pass out and then just go home again. 😛 annoys the hell out of me. Which sends me to the next goal of better Socializing hehe, then maybe i can get some friends that workout, so i can move on to working out at a center 🙂 But one step at the time.

    DAY 20 - Time I woke up: 04:00 AM Time I went to sleep yesterday: 10.00 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 Minor setback in a way. Had my nephews over for the weekend, they brought their Nintendo Wii, so I played a little with them, but never been much of a console player, so I hope it won't affect my will to stay away from pc games. So far nothing 🙂 was fun to play with them though. So I agreed with myself that this did not fit in the category of real gaming 😇

    DAY 14 - Time I woke up: 10:00 AM Time I went to sleep yesterday: 01.00 PM Goals:  Making the apartment, presentable again. - In Progress! Drivers License - In Progress! Learning French - In Progress! Getting in better shape - In Progress! Walk at least 6k steps per day 1h Fitness per day Start Playing Golf again Socialize a Weeks vacation was a bad idea. so much available time, so luring to play again. So ended up going to my grandparents summer house, bit cold there in the winter hehe but there is no internet and it was a nice week totally without internet access. 🙂 Back home again now and 2 days left of vacation. i can't say its become more easy, catch myself thinking about a game or what i should have tried in a game. It's not until you stop, you really realize how addictive it really is.

Drivers License Learning French Getting in better shape - In Progress! Walk at least 6k steps per day 1h Fitness per day Start Playing Golf again Socialize Headache all day, blah.... but one way to stay away from the computer i guess. found out that i better put Instagram and facebook on the shelf to, since those seemed to be taking more and more time as well, now that there was no gaming. Last day at work tomorrow before a weeks vacation, to really get started on goals and test a full week, without work to distract me.

Walk at least 6k steps per day 1h Fitness per day Start Playing Golf again Socialize Saturday was easy, Sunday turned out a lot harder. Raining like crazy, so a whole day inside, got reminded of the first game I played, when I saw a video about an emulator for it came out. Been fighting the idea of installing it, for most of the day. Driving me crazy. gonna turn early to bed. 🙂
