  1. Thanks a lot @Pochatok. It was a general quiz competition, so there is really is not a fixed topic. Lomg time since an entry, I have been travelling a lot, especially to villages, with 0 network coverage. Cheers. Thanks for tye the encouragement @Jason70. Typing in a moving car, so excuse my spellings. Cheers!
  2. Dear Journal, Quite a few days since the last entry. have been extremely busy lately. Had a lot of quizzes. Won a state level competition. Caught up on my reading. Preparing for exams. Missing my aggression, it kept me alert. Source was AC. Started learning Chess. Playing Chess in free time. Let's see how it goes. Cheers!
  3. Hey bro, As a kid, this is my advice. Go back to your childhood. Throw your tantrums. Refuse to eat the sweet stuff. Eat a little outside, or stay hungry, but do not eat that sweet food. If you cave in to your mother's food (only sweet stuff), it will reassure her that even though you say you hate it, you actually love it. This is a common psychology for all mothers. NO OFFENSE. Be strict. Drink water ( a lot) to satiate your hunger. It will work eventually. Trust Me. All the Best! Cheers!
  4. Dear Journal, Day 4: So I have started inculcating new habits into my daily routine everyday. Yesterday, I started reading before sleeping again, since it gives me something new to think about other than games. Today evening, I plan to start visiting my school library everyday to refer to reference books on my academic topics. This is the plan. Let's hope it happens. One thing about quitting gaming is it makes life better than normal. If I never started gaming, I would never had thought about going to my school library. This improvement is amazing. I think even non-gamers must get a
  5. Revelation! [Note: Written in present tense, refers to the past] Yes, I had a revelation. I was never addicted to the games, all thanks to my dad. He ensures to put on a timer of 15 minutes daily, in which I play. We haggle a lot over the timer duration. He finally settles for 15 minutes after loading! Haha! He ensured I did not waste my life on stupid games. As mentioned before, I have always been the topper in my school academically. He has a lot of hopes from me, as do I myself. But my addiction was not to the games, but it was to thinking about the games. It is very distracting.
  6. Thanks a lot guys. @James Good and @Bird By Bird. What you guys say makes sense. However, I think since it was my first time using a forum (since I only read them, but never respond[I do not bother creating an account]). i think I got that working fine because now I check it only twice a day or so, and have disabled all notifications. BTW, how do I check if someone has DM'ed something to me? Anyways, Cheers!
  7. Dear Journal, Day 3: Feeling much better. participating in at least 1 school quiz daily. Got this super cool extension on Microsoft edge. It is called Tide. Helps me focus while studying. Also locks all websites. It plays music in the background. It keeps me from thinking about gaming. My life is on a better path, and hope everyone else's will soon be too. Cheers!
  8. Dear Journal, Day 2: Set up a goal for myself. My goal is NOT to run away from video games, BUT, to stare them in the eyes, yet feel no temptation to play them. I am fond of quizzing, so have picked up on that. I have always been a consistent first ranker, and I intend to keep it that way. Picking up on lost arts, revisiting them, and adding them to my routine again. My body has stopped the autonomous stuff, good news. KO to the Addictions and the True Downfall! Cheers!
  9. Thanks a lot guys @Pochatok and @WhoCares! It means a lot to me!
  10. Thank You for the support guys
  11. @James Good, Can you share your real life story in detail? I find you very inspiring!
  12. Is it possible to get addicted to this forum, especially if you are hoping for a reply to your question, or want to see how many people saw your questions, or how many likes?
  13. Body has become autonomous. I have been playing ac for nearly 4 months now. My first video game. Realized I was getting addicted, not on playing it, but on understanding and adopting it. This required a lot of thinking, disturbing my study schedule and sleep schedule as well. I was completely distracted, finding trivia on it. Today, being Day 1, I am feeling way better, as if on a way to being born again, following @Cam Adair's tips to as far as I can. Thank you for those tips @Cam Adair sir. Somehow my body has become autonomous. Everytime I get up from a chair where I've been sitting o
