  1. Update haven't been here for a while but I wanted to share something I realized about games. I found out after some thoughts about games I played in the past that games implement the doing things for other people element. Think about it, when in games have you ever done something for yourself (the protagonist of the game)? I can't think of any. If you don't believe me here are some examples: Mario; save a princess and stop the bad guy from taking over the mushroom kingdom (Mario could easily not give a shit about this but he is doing it for the princess, saving HER and HER kingdom
  2. Glad life is going good for you! I hope those classes go well. Keep things up, 10 days left!
  3. This is all of us, who are still in school currently. The sad truth is, we will have to put up with being on screens for a bit longer, at least till the whole covid situation dies down. I understand completely, i am doing great but i just can't stand online learning. It'd be nice to go back into full time school but what we deal with now is the reality unfortunately. In terms of advice, i'd say if your school has break periods, like in between classes, find something beneficial you can do in that amount of time. For example, at my school between classes is usually about 4-5 minutes, so what i
  4. Update: 1/5/21 Thoughts on restarting Although I haven't relapsed to games yet, I have been thinking of restarting my detox. Here are a couple of reasons why: 1. constant phone use While I have been doing my activities like exercising, drinking water listening to podcasts, i still look for that stimulation, something to entertain me, and so instead I just go on my phone and use it for hours. As everyone knows it's hard in the beginning, and using things like our phones is fine, but using it still for like 7 hours or more is not what i want. In fact it's gotten to the
  5. I'm glad your grandpa is doing alright for now, i hope he stays well. For your father picking arguments. I understand if the adults in your family are useless and lazy, that can be frustrating. Like what @BooksandTreessaid, the reason for the arguments might be because of the stress/frustration from grandpa's fall and other external sources. Besides the cause, i am assuming that he also might be yelling at her due to her laziness. Maybe there is a way you could encourage her to help and be productive so there's less fights? I am not sure but i hope things improve in your famil
  6. I never personally masturbated myself but I'm glad you have been learning to accept it. I don't know much about this topic as i said before but i do know that it's important to accept some parts of ourselves that one we aren't fond of and two dont get in the way of our dreams or our hobbies. Not only does it make us more accepting to be in our own skin, but it's another thing we don't worry about anymore. So i am glad you were able to prove to yourself you can still masturbate and have sex.
  7. @Bird By Birdyou are exactly right! This is why it's extremely important to complete the detox and re-wire our brains so we CAN do the activities like we see in media instead of just a game version of it. Let's be honest too, the game doesn't get us anywhere. 1/2/2021 Update: Dream blocker? Hope everyone had a good new year! I have already set up how my 2021 will play out. Each month I will pick up a basic easy skill every young adult should have / do, and each month I will begin one new hobby. I realized that since I am going to start my freshman year in August, that the
  8. @BooksandTreesdone! 12/25/20 First hand experience of how gaming impacts people Today i did spend time with my family. However I then decided to go and see how my online friend was doing, so i hit him up on Twitter. We talked a bit and I suddenly realized how gaming impacts them. When i was gaming I thought he was cool and understanding. This time we didn't talk about games, no, he brought up the old discord server i was on and the activity. While active in some parts, sometimes it's dead. I thought this was surprising because Christmas is the time when it's MOST active
  9. To avoid confusion my achievements and life journal is where i will mostly be posting. Only posted here yesterday to post another update before moving so from now my journal updates will be under my life & achievements journal
  10. I am so sorry you failed the exam, that sucks after putting hours of work in. I hope you are able to pass future exams. I am proud you noted you weren't going to passive consumption to hide the pain. Most gamers would in your situation. Good on you, use the pain to improve and succeed!
  11. Hey Breaks can be tough. You are making some good decisions like making a to-do list and cooking, keep those up. For the to-do list, don't go crazy. Only write like a few top priority things on there, you really want done. For the rest of the free time, try thinking of other hobbies you are interested in; like art, photography, writing, or hiking. I think a mistake i made was seeing all of this new free time as a daunting task that i just had to fill. While it is important to fill up the time, realizing you have so much time now, spending or wasting a few hours in front of the t
  12. I also find going to other places help with studying efficiency. Besides library i would suggest a coffee shop, or a park. I would also suggest putting what distracts you in your bedroom and then working in a different room, then studying. I also think the pomodoro technique works if you are really struggling. goodluck
  13. @Bird By Bird Thank you in a short amount of time I have actually changed my plan. In my journal rn, I will share why, and some other things too! Day 0 Journal:
  14. Update: I will now be posting about my life and achievements here. I have decided i will post whenever i want, and when i come on I will communicate with the community. Notes 1: Started binge watching cam's videos, I forgot how inspiring and helpful they are! Now i will break up hobbies I want to do based on seasons (things i want to learn) Spring: Fishing (or summer) Kite Flying Orienteering (includes hiking!) Canoeing Summer: Sailing Swimming (i can swim but I want to practice my strokes) Barbequeing (I have n
  15. @Jason70and @Commissar Thank you so much! I am really looking forward to it, especially with being bullied, when i entered high school i was nervous my bullies would tell potential friends their assumptions about me and no one would wanna be friends. College on the other hand is a fresh start, and i am excited to make school friends finally. For gaming i went off here and thought i could handle it myself i was incorrect. A few days after i relapsed and have been playing since, however i think my 40 days away from its been helpful as i have structured my thing so its the last thing i
  16. haven't been here in a while but just came on to say that i was accepted into my dream college 😭😭😭😭
  17. Day 41 49 days to go Although today was less accomplished, im still happy for it. I got to experiment with creating a new morning routine. I think it will help with the productivity Improvement: Start morning routine tomorrow Gratitude: my health currently, my education, my friends
  18. Congratulations on the youtube milestone, the apartment, and the job! Seems like things are really looking good for you, I'm happy for you! Cheers Panda
  19. Day 40 Day 40, 50 more days to go.... Highlight of the day was: completing all my homework when it was immediately assigned. It actually felt good compared to pushing it off and then stressing Improvement: Waking up earlier, less phone Despite being in quarantine now for school, I can do other things beside my phone. Also i don't have to be isolated in my room Grateful for: Mom, living another day, my current health.
  20. I'm glad you've been doing well so far, keep up the good work!
  21. welcome, i think it's good that on your list you are including water. Drinking water is so important for all life and drinking less can cause ugly things like headaches or migraines, chapped lips, overall dehydration and more. Having it as part of your journal i think is good, to remind yourself. For this I think it's good that you are pushing yourself to get 75% or more on the metric, but if it doesn't work out don't worry, every little bit of improvement compared to your two rocky days is good. Anyway, best of luck on your journey!
  22. Sounds like you are doing good, keep it up! I totally agree with this! Yoga is so beneficial and relaxing. Which is why i want to get back into it.
  23. Day 39 Today I wrote a to do list and got a lot of it done, didn't get to my language or my piano/guitar playing but still got a bunch done and crossed off. My phone still is a big distraction for me, but by the end of this detox hopefully it will have leveled out. I have not watched any game related content or played any games today, so still chugging along. Today idk why but it feels like I'm more me, like a mask is off my face hiding my true self. Idk what it is but I'm glad this feeling is there. Tomorrow, i am going to wake up early to finish up some studies and work and make
  24. Sounds like you're still keeping strong. I wish you the best of luck on resetting your sleep schedule.
