  1. 01-15:20- played for 4 days. Jan 10, 11, 12, and 14th. I keep hearing a voice telling me I can just play single player games and moderate them. And while SP has kept me from going back to MMOS which are probably the worst. I need to note play ANY games. As long as I play games I will never feel 100% energetic and motivated in my life. My brain will want the easy dopamine path and everything else will feel gray like the below video explains: I literally hate my life. I feel stuck and I feel like the only way I will be able to gather the energy I need to break
  2. I use to play MMORPGS. I've been using single player to help get myself completely away. I'm still relapsing, but too single player games. Obviously no games at all is the goal, but I find its alot easier to stop playing a game you can pause vs a big MMO that sucks you in and has a social element. Single Player still effects your brain negatively however.
  3. 01-09-20 , Day 3: Yesterday 01-08-19 was pretty easy, I took a nap after work then went to the conventional gym after work. I watched videos meditation and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ( BJJ ), then an episode of Star Trek before falling asleep. No too many thoughts. Today 01-09-19, has felt harder. I went to work and per my schedule go to BJJ on Thursdays. I felt a strong urge to not go and play Star Wars Republic Commando or Battlefront. I thought about the gameplay during the day a few times. I managed to overcome it. I took a 20 minute nap after eating and went BJJ class. I'm
  4. Haven't made it all the way there, but Ive managed to keep away from WoW at least since nov 30th. Starting a journal and hoping make that 90-day finish-line soon.
  5. I second giving away/selling your playstation. Creating barriers to entry will make it easier to stay away. Your brain is smart and can figure out other ways to game still, but if it's inconvenient , it's less likely you'll relapse again. I know for me deleting my accounts has helped get me further than when i still had them.
  6. For sure. I'm currently still quitting, but I had a period of 4 years prior to this without gaming. It was defintely easier to focus on more mundane activities. Even now , although i'm not all the way there, it's still alot easier than when I started this process.
  7. I think for me the biggest thing is that gaming changes your biochemistry in a way that makes it hard to enjoy anything else in life. Your brain adapts to it's current level of stimulation to achieve homeostasis. If gaming gives you this huge rush of a dopamine and other neurotransmitters, it's going to compensate. Soon the easy hits of dopamine gaming gives, will be the only thing your brain wants to do, and other tasks that aren't as exciting, like say other hobbies, or even just having a conversation won't be as exciting. I would say the biggest benefit really is being able to enj
  8. Hello, I originally found game quitters and bought Cams program at the end of August. It's been a difficult journey, after reflection I've decided that creating a journal is probably a good idea. So far my experience has been a series of ups and downs. While I've managed to significantly reduce my playtime and make a few 4 week stretches without playing, I have not been able to make it the full 90 days without relapsing. To give a short summary of my background I started playing video games at 4 years old on one of those old gateway computers. I think I've been really i
  9. Hello all, I've been trying to quit World of Warcraft. I've played this game off and on since it came out. I managed to quit and stay away for 4 years while in college. It was hard, but being surrounded by so many people and having so many different groups to participate in made it not bad. After graduating college and finding myself alone in a job I absolutely hated, I found myself turning to an old habit. I have a different job now which isn't as bad, but I've still been struggling with stopping gaming. I spent all of September quitting the game for a few days only to
