  1. Keep pushing yourself for your dreams (you got this!) and try to enjoy the recovery time (with non-video game ways, of course)! Love your Hamilton quote by the way: one of my favorites and I have a shirt with it.
  2. Hang in there! Don't give into the temptation to play: the first week seems to be the hardest. Gain consistency and do more fun things like basketball to help occupy your time (just studying all day will eventually leave you lonely and depressed). Exercise is great and running is very immersive: I used to run cross country in high school and I remember loving the runner's highs. Overall you're making progress and doing good work it seems: congratulations!!! 🙂
  3. Day 6-11 No I have not been playing video games. I had a couple of rough days last week, but overall I've been good. I got some writing done finally today and yesterday, and I am almost done with the first chapter. Will be heading to the gym soon: I made it to the gym twice last week (not excellent, but good for me). Overall I'm doing great and will try to get some consistency in these journals and my life overall. There have been temptations with gaming, but luckily I have not given into them. I did reinstall Steam on my computer so my brother could play a game, but it is signed in on his account and I do not have access to mine, so I am not too concerned. I still have to send Cam Adair an email for the final action step 🙂
  4. Day 5 Wrote today: not as much, but still glad to be making progress. Been hitting the gym. Felt exhausted towards the end of the day, which is probably a good thing. It's definitely getting harder, but it's worth it and can be overcome with focus and trust in Him.
  5. Day 4 The writing has started and progress is being made. I did a little over a thousand words, which may not be much but it certainly makes me proud! For the second day in a row I got up early and went to daily mass and have been much more productive. I am extremely happy about this: this system may actually work!!!!
  6. Day 3 Excellent day today! Finally completed the modules and I feel that I am well on my way to finding a more meaningful life. Now that I've completed the modules, I plan to start writing tomorrow and to learn to alternate mentally engaging activities and resting activities effectively and productively. I am having a blast: thank you Cam and thank you all!
  7. Hello Sarma! Seeing a therapist is a great idea if you're struggling with anxiety. Oftentimes it's just a chemical imbalance and can fixed fairly quickly. Even if it isn't, they'll teach you techniques for handling it, which can be very helpful. Don't worry about having done this x many times: what matters is what you do going forward. We cannot change the past, but we can learn from it. We're all here for you!
  8. @bonno51 Welcome to the forum! Rebuilding your life from the start is going to be difficult, but you seem to be taking all the right steps. Remember to congratulate yourself for the progress you have made so far and do make in the future. Meetup and going to the gym are great ideas! We're all here to support you through this, and don't dread on having this be the second time you have tried to quit video games: just keep moving forward. Remember the old Batman quote: "Why do we fall, Master Bruce? So we can learn to pick ourselves up." I wish you the best in your journey.
  9. Day 2 Had a great day today. Got through the fourth module of Respawn and made my calendar for the upcoming weeks. I'm excited to get started tomorrow (which will coincide with me starting my book). I am feeling hopeful and have almost a "love of life" feeling. "In Him was life, and this life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it." John 1:4 One of my favorite quotes, and a perfect quote to describe my feelings today. May God bless you all!
  10. Day...Let's start over Although I did not have a relapse, I have not been productive the last week or so, and have not posted to this journal forum in over ten days. That being said, I did have a major breakthrough and decided to write a book, which will occupy much of my time. I finally am making progress again on the modules. I am considering this a new start, one where I will actually do the daily journaling and occupy my time, rather than laying on the coach, watching Frasier, and contemplating why I am not playing video games instead. That "Fill the Void" section was something I really needed to pay attention to, and I am beginning to learn just how much of a void there now is. I will push forward and pray for God's help in this. Thank you everyone for your support!
  11. Life is challenging, but no matter how your relationship goes in the future know that God infinitely loves you and all of us and wants us to actualize the potential that he has granted each one of us. Things will get better as you continue to improve yourself and your life: do not fall back into a relapse. Praying for you and best of luck 🙂
  12. Day 3 Did not do much work on completing the ebook or continuing with the action items, but I have not played video games today, and am infinitely happier because of it. Thank you ElectroNugget for the greeting and for the advice: I may very well take it and I do have a few friends who would be more than happy to do so. I hope for the future.
  13. Best of luck on your continuing journey. Trust in God, and He will guide you to your path as a warrior in light. I'm praying for you.
  14. Day Two Started the second module, but have to get up early and will complete it tomorrow. I am struggling with deleting my video game accounts: I deleted any games installed on my computer, but deleting full accounts (i.e. Steam, SWTOR, etc.) is proving difficult, both because of their value to me (probably mostly emotional) and the difficulty in doing it (I can't find a simple and legitimate way to delete either account). I have not played any video games today, and am grateful for that. There is temptation and nostalgia lingering, especially when stressed and bored, but overall I am doing fine so far.
  15. Day One I have been delaying fully starting this program, playing "Detroit: Become Human" and wasting a ridiculous amount of hours and causing my sleep schedule to become that of a drunkard. Today I got the book printed out and read the first chapter and have completed the worksheets and will continue this process throughout next week. Once the book is concluded, I intend on doing the 90 day detox and getting my life back on the track that it ought to be on. I am worried and scared of failure and relapse, but hopeful for the future and the fulfillment that it may very well bring.
