I just joined game quitters. I'm 16 and I feel like the main thing holding me back is spending about 4 hours every weekday playing video games and probably 20 hours each weekend. I want to stop, but the majority of my friends play almost as much as me which enables me, and I feel like I've already invested to much time and money in this "hobby" to stop. I've heard of people going cold turkey and just deleting their steam accounts, and although I'd like to go cold turkey, my steam account is worth nearly $2000 and I can't bring myself to throw it away. My questions are: How do you stop yourself from gaming? Are there preventative measures you can set for yourself? Did you lose friends when quitting gaming? Any responses are appreciated.
