  1. It doesnt makes my life really better, it makes one moment better but at the end of a round in Lol u just feel bad. There are a lot of reasons why not to play, and only 1-2 reasons why you could play. And because I cant play moderate I just had to stop totally. After quitting now for 1-2 years I feel a LOT better
  2. focus on waking up early(but go sleep early too so u get enough sleep!), then go DIRECTLY on ur study work and after that you are free in the rest of the time that worked good for me but: time after work should also be used with meaningful things.. sport etc all the thingsu mentioned are normal (deleting games -> replace with also addictive stuff like youtube) we are all addicted to internet not only to games.Thats why we have to get away from internet totally(only use it for work)
  3. Sell your laptop buy a cheap one. Sell your steam acc or delete it
  4. self improvement doesnt mean to work 24/7 ? it means also to make space for free time and actually enjoying things if you achieve your goals and Ou still doesnt feel happier, then u need to think why. The sense is to feel happier because u start to do you actually want to do
  5. Sometimes I thought my issue with university was a long time a social problem. I didnt know many people there to hangaround and so I had also not much motivation to start with my learning. But currently I know pretty many people there and I have many guys to speak with. However now I see that this isnt the game changer problem. Its surely a good thing, but it doesnt lead to much improvement in my learning routine. Still my biggest problem is to learn at home. At library etc. its going good. Of course there are also many things I can improve there (more concentration etc) but at least I can sit my ass there and do some work. At holidays it works good but during semester...hard. Christmas holidays are coming but sadly all librarys are closed during that time till new year ? University just started 2months but still I see myself now again in a pretty bad situation. Its not thag bad because I know I can just take again a semester off and study on my own again. But obviously I dont want to lose time on finishing my degree... Thats the current situation
  6. Hey, lately some pretty big problems with being productive. Im trying to make it step by step. Its not like im the whole day unproductive but some issues in the family made it really hard to do my work. So its definitely not 100% my own fault. Of course all of us can be productive even in hard times. You can literally work everywhere/everytime. But as humans we normally have preferences, we are no machines. Like we do in our gaming detox it as hard as possible to get back to games(sell pc, sell steam acc etc), we should also try to make it as easy as possible to be productive. I remember in the past I always thought like: ‚Hey, you need to make this detox, but dont make it easy. Let the games installed etc. you have to prove yourself you can make it‘. I somehow have this mentality everywhere. Even in games I hate to play sneaky. I am the guy who likes to rushing in, even he knows he will lose, even he knows what is smarter. But I hate it to play ‚intelligent’(sneaky). Thats also a reason why I got so mad by playing lol. People played with their mind did a bit dmg over time to win the round at the end. I was like’Just go in’. I always thought I had to win in the hardest way to prove I am strong. But I am not that strong and thats totally okay. No one at the fcking world makes it harder for him to achieve something. Everyone tries to make it as easy as possible. So I have to do that too. I am not sure how to manage again to be productive with medical school.Its not like I dont do nothing but I just cant do my work after classes(exhausted at least I say that to myself). Normally I wake up early and do my stuff. Thats cool because I learn 6-8 hours and then i have the whole day free. But that only works in holidays. During semester there are many classes... Yesterday I learnt at least a bit I will do that today too.. Who knows It can be the start of a productive time again haha... we will see guys
  7. exactly! Doing what you are actually supposed to do leads all the time to less cravings. We usually just cope with games instead of just do our damn school work, which make everything worse
  8. Keep it up mate! I am following your journal
  9. Hello many peoples are addicted to games/internet. But just a few actually admit that. Obviously as an ex gamer I have/had a lot of contact to other people which have a giant internet consumption. Most of them usually doesnt reflect, they take arguments like ‚a bit gaming is not bad‘ although they play all day. ‚papers show that gaming leads to faster reaction time‘ arguments like that to even say gaming is a good thing. Some days ago I asked people in game, why they dont stop gaming, why they play all day every day. People were extremely negative about. They didnt admit the addiction etc. Personally I never did that. I think I knew since ever that this high internet usage is bad for me. I always wanted to quit and I admitted that I have a problem. But I simply couldnt. I wonder whether you admitted your addiction before or you also ignored any advice of other people and you lied yourself too?
  10. I understand. There are mainly two groups of gamers. People who dont have any targets in life, they just game because its the only thing they can and they like to do. The other group is full of people who actually have many life goals, many things they want to do, but because its tough to start those things and its actually work and it brings stress, people are playing games to forget all this pressure. You are in highschool so you have time to think about what you want in life. I would really give you the advice to do research on that. You need goals. Otherwise its tough to stop gaming if you have nothing you actually work for daily
  11. Good luck mate! My advice: you should try to do things which are actually meaningful for you instead of grinding right into the next addiction like binge watching anime/movies/series. Get some hobbys which are fun for you, it will feel a lot of better than just to do something so you can forget about the gaming
  12. Good luck mate! Take your time about your steam account, maybe you can even sell it for money?
  13. Which program language u want learn? I think thats a good thing, I learned one too with success when I did my first detox(python).
  14. You know its hard to stay on track at weekends because of the freetime -> get hobbys to fill this time with useful things! Dont risk a relapse just because u think you will have the discipline.
  15. Big goals. Wish you the best!
  16. Passed a very important exam with success! Yea! Somehow I didnt feel that good compared to all the struggle I had while learning for it. But I guess thats because semester started and It just goes on, no break. Next step is the physiology exam in one month. After the exam I mentioned before I didnt went straight to the new learning stuff + most of the other students already learnt dome weeks for the courses of this semester while I learnt for this exam from the year before because I failed it at first. So currently its kind of gab between my education level and theirs. Therefore I habe to study hard now. I am waiting for some books I ordered online. I want to learn with them. They should come the next days. Not really happy with my work rate currently... Should do more. But its again as always: Dont have the right plan how to start. But as always: just start with the learning, it helps to ger an overview -> leads to a plan. I dont want to stress myself much, also when I didnt do my work. Just take it as it is. But: I obviously have to do work my work. do my routine! That helped me always and I have to focus again on that. Im sure I can make it then through this tough year at university. Thats it currently!
  17. So this werk started good, made some important exams with success. Of course I want some kind of break now, but I need to go on, otherwise I have a lot of stress with university later again.
  18. Hey, long time no see The main reason why I didnt write anymore is that I simply lost the interest into writing this journal. I usually check gq anyways from time to time to see how other people progress. But, to be honest, its sometimes frustrating. At one side gq is a pretty ‚sad‘ place because all the people here are having problems in their lifes and they are obviously writing about that. I think its natural that people doesnt want to see that much sad things, especially not in the internet, because for people like us, we normally only get dopamin here and not the view into serious problems. However there are also many people here which succeed they are getting out of the mess and I can truly say that makes me happy. But at the other hand I feel bad when I read how people write about their better life now. Probably I compare it to mine. My life is not even bad its running good, smoothly lately. Of course the usual struggle. But somehow I feel bad reading about peoples ‚better‘ life. Thats strange because I used to get my dopamin also while checking people out who had success in their life. However thats the thing. So I am not sure what to do. Mainly I just write now because I have some serious exams in the next week and I should be learning for them. My library closed due to some renovation, therefore I learn at home, which is hard but it works.. Also there are now a lot of classes I have to visit because semester started again -> no much time to learn, feeling stressed when I come home. But this year is very, very important. I have to give my best after that I am not done, but it will get easier. So I thought I should write again here, because till now it always got better when I wrote here again. Maybe not directly, maybe not even because of the writing I have no idea, but it went better. I blocked many sites at my browser. I never did that before, but it works soo well. I wasnt sure whether Ill just delete the block after some time but that didnt happend. Lately there are not much things which I can procrastinate with, only youtube and a bit of runescape. Ill give a break to runescape too now. At least for 2-3months. Im not addicted to it, I only play due to nostalgia, but currently no time for that.. So I sit my ass now in front of my computer and do my university stuff ? Ill keep u updated guys I hope it will help me through this tough time (again..)
  19. I guess its time to stop going into the detox without real alternatives. Do you work or do you go to school? Do you do sport? Other hobbys? I think you need a solid base of activities you will do when you quit. The music thing is good for example. You just need to add some things and to actually start them. Or what are your thoughts why you keep relapsing? For me it wad mostly that I had nothing else to do or simply wanted to forget the stress/work(so gaming -> relax). Both things disappeared when I started to work for school as much as I had to + added sports/learnt new instrument.
  20. Well here they say you need 3 months to introduce a habit. You do good, it will feel better with time. Patience, discipline and faith, youll be good!
  21. Hey, I struggle since a long time with nofap. I know the benefits are huge, but also because personal reasons I want to do that(hard mode). However I cant manage it... So I wonder whether you guys have some tips? Its time to get another thought because my own system doesnt seem to work.
  22. big load of motivation to refresh the dopamin system completely. But this has to be a clear decision, otherwise it will end in a relapse anyways(-> even harder to start again). Motivation doesnt lead to a better life, its just a moment you feel good and maybe you do something, maybe even not... pointless. You need the discipline and then it will work so before I start a whole dopamine refresh maybe I just improve in simple steps... sounds way more possible -> clear mind decision, no motivation/dopamin bs
  23. Daily struggle, not much new. I wonder when I want to start to actually do something to reduce the computer time stronger. Its just that currently med school is so heavy anf time expensive, that I have not the ‚energy‘ to do something else. This is prolly not true, I just have to do the first steps. I mean, I can do that. Why not start today again with some jogging? lets see...
  24. Nice decision, stay strong
