  1. I want to sell my Xbox, but my parents won't let me do it, because they told me they spent alot of money on it, it will be a waste. Even though, I've to them about my gaming addiction, they just fail to understand my problem. So my mom suggested that, I should let my dad have it. Is it really ok to let him have it? My dad used to have a smoking problem, but he quit smoking cold turkey for about 3 or 4 years. I'm just a little worried he might get addicted to video games.
  2. Hi, my name is Jimyree Martin and I'm 15 years old. This is my second introduction post, and the reason why I'm making another introduction, is because I relapsed on the 89th day of my detox. I know it sounds crazy and stupid, but it happened. Honestly, it didn't matter at all, because I didn't do shit during the days. All I did, was read articles (including respawn), watched gaming streams, and procrastinated alot on the things I wanted to do. I've found activities, but never bothered to try them. On the 89th day, I felt so happy to talk to my online friends for so long. I reinstalled all my games and played Smite and Black ops 3 with them. It was very fun, but I felt this huge disappointment in my life when I got off. I started to feel depressed and anxious while I was playing with my ONLY friends that were online. So that's when I decided that I would have my final laugh with them for 1 week. During that week I neglected everything in my life and played about 14+ hours, so I can have the best experience with my pals online and I started to feel worse and worse physical and health wise. I actually started to feel bored and extremely mad than usual. On the last day of my gaming week I made a montage of my best moments on Xbox and sent it to all my friends and telling them I won't be on anymore and they were very angry and sent me msgs saying," But y" and "I don't understand" I just ignored them and uninstalled every game and removed my account. And so now I'm here for my fourth attempt to quit playing video games. I don't know why, but I just feel really good about this attempt, and is it just me or did anyone else have a dream that night about regreting what you just did and that no one will understand why you did it? Well, anyway I'm glad I did it and I hope I can succeed this time.
  3. Thanks for the post Jeremias, it really opened my eyes. I'm gonna exercise and give some activities a try today. It's time for me to finally move on from gaming and start the next chapter in my life. I'm sick of procrastinating and feeling depressed everyday. I just wished I would've realized this sooner, because I wasted sooooo many days.
  4. Well I've tried Spanish, but I don't think I like it like that,I also tried origami and magic tricks.Those are ok, but it seems that I can't stay consistent with them and I don't know what other activities to try on the 60+ hobbies list. I don't know which one to choose and I'm sorta not interested in most of them.
  5. I'm on day 63 and I haven't done nothing productive. I've been watching YouTube videos and trying my best, to not watch gaming streams. I'm thinking about relapsing, because I'm not doing anything at all. I tried finding new activitys, but it's not working out for me. I don't think I should have started the detox, because I don't even feel like quitting. Even though, I need to quit, this addiction is very strong. Also, I already know what will happen if I relapsed, I'm gonna be on 10+ hours everyday, I just don't know what to do at all.
  6. Hi, my name is Jimyree Martin, I live in Atlanta, Georgia, and I'm 15 years old. I have been playing video games for 10+ hours on weekends and holidays, and played like 4 right after school ever since I was young, and finally knew it became a problem when I turned 12, and I have 3 online best friends that I knew for 4 years, but my parents never thought it was a problem. They just thought it was something that I do and that it was never a bad thing to do. When I actually think about it, I think they have done terrible parenting, when I first introduced them to your channel, I told them all about how this game addiction is harming my life, but they said," why would you quit something you love." It just left me speechless, but I've decided to start the Detox (Day 54 btw and still feel like a unproductive loser) and to change my life, although I've just been sitting on my ass all day doing nothing m, but watching streams and other stuff. Anyway, the reason why I want to quit (tbh I don't even want to quit, I love video games and my online friends) is because, I have been feeling depressed and lonely for 5 years, at school I just sit and watch other people talk to each other, having fun and stuff, their are moments when I talk, but it happens rarely. Also, I have been saying, " I hate my life", more than usually lately, (don't worry I'm not having suicidal thoughts) and I really want to stop saying that when I feel depressed. I know that I am really late, and should have joined the forums sooner, but I'm really shy. I really hope I can change my life and end this depression. Also, I feel like my little brother is heading in the same direction as me.
