  1. Hi everyone! I quit games back in August of 2019 on my birthday. Had about 8 months of doing pretty decently and played a game or two occasionally but ended up stopping once quarantine hit. It's been about a year and I'm trying to quit again. I have a 10 month old son and I'm trying to keep my relationship with my fiancé intact. I've been gaming since I was 2 or 3, I'm almost 32 now. I've been in therapy and talked to a psychiatrist about depression, sleep apnea, anxiety, and ADHD. I've stopped playing games for about a month now. I'm currently having trouble finding some
  2. Thanks a bunch! I'm definitely going to start journaling because this sucks haha.
  3. Hey everyone, I wanted to respond to how things have been going for me. October was a pretty tough month, my girlfriend and I were having a ton of issues and I ended up turning to gaming for comfort. Come to find out she was pregnant so that was what was causing a lot of the issues haha. We've having a boy, which is pretty crazy because I wasn't planning on having kids at all but that's fine! That being said, I've been having a lot of issues staying away from games and regulating my moods. I realized I've basically full tilt gone back to games but I reason to myself that I'm n
  4. Really great man! I've had so many problems with sweets and I've been having issues sticking to quitting games as well. It's awesome to see all these journal entries from you. Almost a year! Keep it up!
  5. Hey all, I dropped off the face of the earth since my first post but I have been pretty happy with my results so I wanted to post again. I'm going on 7 weeks no gaming, I still play board games and dungeons and dragons but I don't devote the same time to them like I did video games. I've started a lifting program and have gone to the gym for about 2 and a half weeks straight now, stopped buying vending machine food, and started packing most of my lunches. The result? I feel amazing. My mind is the clearest it's ever been, eating less sugar and not having the insane video
  6. Hey all, I've been gaming since before I remember and yesterday I hit one week down! I've had a lot of introspection and I definitely feel like I can do so much more with my life, but I realized something last night. When I used to play games I had the feeling of being unproductive at all times. I knew I had things to do but I would never get them done, and even if I was productive I still wouldn't feel great. Last night I realized I don't feel that feeling at all anymore! And that is HUGE. Just thought I'd share, I'm enjoying my journey and have been excited to pa
  7. Thanks everyone, I really appreciate the replies. Games definitely do drain me and make it hard to stick to healthy hobbies. I'll check out that detox video and I'm excited to talk to a psychologist and psychiatrist. It's exciting to think that I can become pretty adequate with some skill I choose in just 2 years. Makes me feel like I can accomplish quite a bit! Things have been going well, I'm messing around with the thought of some hobbies that I had never dreamed I would have the time for (writing, drawing, programming). I've definitely thought about play
  8. And now I'm here! Hi guys, I'm Caleb. I've had a very rough time coming to grips with needing to get away from games. My parents didn't pay much attention and didn't help me along much emotionally when I was younger and instead just threw games at me for as long as I've lived because it seemed to keep me happy. Now I'm 30 and just now realizing how bad this has affected me as an adult. I've done things to help but quitting games is most likely one of the best next steps I can take. I have been depressed all my life, dropped out of college three times, left school my senio
