    That was such a wonderful time for us. Three years. Eight hundred fifty four days exactly. Subject remained cooperative for such a long time. What have we do? What happened? What happened?! Why is he waking up? Days 10 to 864: FAILURE Day 0: Dear diary. I won’t even call it day 1. I’m writing this after playing for 15 hours. I’m going to sleep now, just posting this to have sth to come back to. Till tomorrow.
  2. Welcome back! Im back too after a very long break, I know how you feel. Stay stronger this time!

    We realized our plan. We located a girl that the subject showed affection towards and made her send some error message to the subject, asking for help. Subject hesitated but helped and solved the problem successfully. Afterwards the subject told her that games were bad. She told the subject he should get fucking real. That hit him hard, but bounced off his armor... We must find another way... Day 9: SUCCESS It's actually so good to feel the time flowing once more. It's been only 9 days, but it already feels like months. Today was a good day overall. I woke up (second alar
  4. Well now, since you have more free time because of not playing, you won't drop out, if you use this time to learn the required stuff ?
  5. @Lea Oh my God! I hope you get better soon!
  6. Congratulations, what a productive day! The juices formation is magnificent! I hope nobody ruined it... Who is Eve?

    Subject broke free again. We must prepare another ambush, involve more of his friends. Day 8: SUCCESS Today was similar to yesterday in the sense that I woke up and didn't have any purpose. This time, however, I mindfully decided to do manual labor (tidy up the apartment) instead of launching games. Then I watched a volleyball match, ate breakfast and even, impressively, performed some basic physical exercises. I'm feeling like a rusty robot, everything hurts when I move. Apart from that, I'm feeling better - the medicine helps a lot. I stuck to the evening ritual, tim
  8. @Gaming Zombie hey man! good you prepared for the exam! i'm afraid any sort of addiction is incurable. but manageable with certain methods and a huge dose of will power, right I feel like you're trying to rush everything too much. You will not fix your entire life in 90 days. You can try to fix certain things (like the gf situation) but do not expect to succeed at everything. Focus on the main goal: staying sober from games. Fixing everything else is secondary, so if it doesn't succeed, don't let it get on you!
  9. hi @Doug! I've had similar thoughts during server maintenance ? You have our support
  10. Hello Dmitry! You're doing pretty good in terms of expressing your thoughts in English! Are you planning to re-enter the university? as Gaming Zombie said, it's time to ditch the good ol'hobbies and pick up some brand new ones!
  11. hi! I admire how you still succeeded despite not being able to come up with a nickname ? also your post is a showcase of perfect English warning: consistency > perfection

    Hiding was a wonderful idea. Subject fell pray to our sneak attack. The subject deleted browsing history but we managed to setup a trap with session restoring. The subject logged on another computer and boom 20tabs of gaming content flooded him. Foolish was he not to close them immediately. The subject got so drawn in that he finished the main quest of the game. Then he shut down the computer. Partial victory we'd say. We ambushed the subject, he got beaten down, but he stood up and ran away fast enough, before we were able to drag him back into our loving arms of addiction. Day 7: Not a

    What freaks me out is I don't know what THEY did today. I'm having a lot of flashbacks from the past. Like way past, at the beginning of my gaming disaster. And also from the end of it. In my mind I see how I changed. Also how I progressed as a player. I started at the very bottom of the ladder and crawled my way up to the 0.000001% or so of the players. Despite getting so good at this, I never wanted to become pro, nor did I even want to play. It was meant to be a past time, and I haven't realised that I was addicted. The problem lied, paradoxically, in school. I was always among the best stu
