After going through the loop of uninstall -> detox -> moderate -> relapse (binge) -> uninstall -> regret cycle too many times, I finally pulled the trigger and sabotaged my online gaming accounts in an irreversible fashion. That was a week ago. It feels really good, I'll say that. I've been making actual progress on my studies to catch up on a month or two of work that piled up. It's kinda hard and I'm sick right now, too, but if I have to get my diploma and qualify for universities, I'll just have to live through this for two more weeks. There are a dozen assignments, college essays, the normal schoolwork, on top of end-of-semester science exams. I think I might be screwed, but I'll try my best to get it all done. I don't know if I can. Even when I was really productive I didn't do this much work in such a short time frame. I got myself into this shithole, I guess.
Hi guys, I'm Thientai, from Argentina and its been exactly 52 days since the last time i played. I'm studying industrial engineering, had a girlfriend until april (now we are trying to repair the relationship and be together again), and my life was a mess until 14 days ago, since i started to reorganize my life again to the basics when i had a schedule and most of my life was going well. by those times i used to play without feeling guilty or anxious because the rest of my days were organized by schedule, and i had time to play the guitar, sing, go to the gym and play in my free time. The mess started when i broke the schedule and i started to improvise work and study times. Thats when i started to feel guilty when playing or even when going to train or do whatever else besides studying. Now i could organize my schedule again and i think im going back to gaming but i think i'll only play offline games, not community addictive online games. In these times i didnt play i got bored sometimes but not much to be honest. But i feel like there will be no problem if i add normal and not so much gaming into my life. What do you think? cheers!
