  7. 11th day of the 4th month Enough only counting my sobriety from video games already I have a new detox to start! I have made a decision to go without digital technology for 90 days which means no internet, no computer, no television, no smart phone except to check email for job interviews, no radio, no music at all even unless I am creating it .. .. and I will begin this week - yikes! I will be spending the day getting ready to begin by applying for a lot of jobs and will print a lot of resumes. Just the motivation I needed to get the ball rolling here, this is going to be fun!

  9. Glad to have you here Colorado Kris, video games & addiction here we dis. I dig Linux do you GNU? That is an amazing color that deep vibrant blue. I got slightly into speedrunning & setting unique challenges myself just to make the old games feel fun and challenging again. Really glad I woke up to the fact it was all doing me a disservice anyhow so happy none of that needs to be on my mind anymore. Good decision going for the detox best of luck.

  10. 10th day of the 4th month: simple yet effective omega 3/6 .. .. 1T Chia seeds + water for .. Chia Water! 2019JUL13 - Chia Water.mp4
  11. Penne Spaghetti Pasta upgrade! Penne & Spaghetti noodles in saucepan covered & cooked about 10 mins. Added broccoli, onion, & mushrooms around 6 minutes in then as get rid of most remaining water by boiling open on medium or strain - then added garlic & onion powder along with a chunk of tomato paste. This was an awesome change-up to my routine foods❗
  12. Though you have been here before I will share a newcomer briefing with you here, maybe part of it with be a help, best of luck. @Sarma Neil
  13. First off this is something new to you that you don't understand because you fear it. I suggest scheduling an appointment with a therapist to hash it out a bit. Sounds like addiction withdrawal to me. Back when I was quitting alcohol having people to chat to that related really helped I would just drink myself into a drunken stupor otherwise. Maybe the StopGaming discord chat would be a good place to stop by next time you feel an anxiety attack coming on. Best of luck. @Sarma
