  1. Well its been another day I got through. Was debating about gaming to night explaining to myself that I have gone a whole month without gaming that it would be alright if I did it once a month. I would even just play my guitar game so it was some what productive. The back of mind though there is this thing that says gaming ruined your life starting in middle school when you would choose that over doing homework or developing a useful life skill, you devoted your time to that life drain. Your parents tried to get you off it but Dad was tired of being a cop and just stop getting super upset abou
  2. Thanks for the comments :). That was an unexpected surprise. I almost caved in today explaining to myself that there's too much wrong in my life(car troubles, relationship troubles, healthy eatting\exercise troubles and money troubles) but I ended up watching The Orville which was entertaining. I like how it kind of resembles Star Trek and still has ethical story lines. Anyway ya today was better than yesterday. I was pretty run down yesterday I think because of withdrawing from my anti-depressant that I take. I ran out and didn't take it for 2 days. Its amazing how it effects your mood and th
  3. Having a tough time. Cars not working, have no friends, hooked on drugs, feel like shit unless on drugs. I didn;t even think I would be on here journaling, but I did. Its just rough out here by yourself, with nothing to do but watch tv shows, at least there funny and make me laugh but life just feels like a cruel grind sometimes. I got to work but I can't connect with anyone because I am on drugs. so the drugs give me the feel good chems. but thats the whole reason I am on them is because I couldn't connect with people when I moved away from home and found myself alone and all my highschool fr
  4. Today went well. I planned to do a walk at 8 and go it done. Then came figuring out what I would do for the rest of the day. I ended up doing more things I planned on google calendars and got them done. Maybe not at the time I planned but still got them done. I think part of the success is because of what Cam said about getting to a point where you feel better and then you thinking its ok to go back to doing the same things again but that would just lead you to relapse. The mind is tricky. This got me to thinking about why I was doing things. A few days ago I was sitting in my room and was fee
  5. Got through another day. I had really strange dreams last night. I was using cough syrup to get through kratom withdrawls so hence the strange dreams. I dreamed about my ex girlfriend from like 11 years ago. I find it hard to not to beret myself but, doing so won't help. So as i talk to the 6 year old me I find it very sad for the guy because hes still finding feelings after 11 years and doesn't know how to stop them or get over it. I became pretty drepressed and shut down after that. i was already pretty emotional before I met her. Just knock me down to not feeling anything and gaming all the
  6. Today was an alright day. It got pretty hectic at work because we have one less person but my boss wants to keep working pushing on. Its annoying. The company will make more money but, we won't see anything. So I try to go slow to show that we need another person. Hopefully we get someone new. As for quitting games, I've gone 25 days. its been tough. My car broke down and I have been busing everywhere. Looks like its a fuel issue and probably going to cost me some cash :(. Sucks but that comes with owning a car. I have started scheduing my days and that has been making me more productive. My r

    All I can say is never underestimate your enemies.
  9. Good Job on five days! Keep it going with the creativity!
  10. Give your game to your parents and tell them its too distracting for you.

  12. Hi, My name is Brandon and I am looking to find something else to do with my life outside of work that isn't video gaming. Gaming has been a big part of my life for a long time but now it seems like all I do or can do with how my life has turned out. In high school after each day I would pass the time gaming when I got home. I was a smart kid if I applied myself but gaming was far more interesting then school. So my grades suffered. I felt like my social skills suffered as well as I would be gaming when all the other kids would be hanging out with each other. I was also a big push over (a
