  1. Hey. If you need any support, we're here to help. Hope you can take care of that problem.
  2. I'm resetting just because. Day 0 I'm getting really inconsistent with my journals. I need to journal so I can keep track of my gaming progress
  3. Day 2 Feeling fine. It's always short those feelings. Anyways, the patterns I see is that school days are almost pause days, in which not much progress is made into defeating this addiction. In addition, it often leads me tired at the weekend which is where the addiction continues. I realize that I need to accept this. Just need to remind myself my path, how important it is to me.
  4. Day 1 (?) It's been so long since I last journaled. That must suck a lot. They say journaling your day is like the gateway of knowledge. Who knows how many missed opportunites I missed. All I could blame is myself I guess. How do I feel about this addiction. Right now, I had some urges when I went to the living room where the TV is but I managed to defend myself from them. The biggest thing I feel is regret over not knowing my journey the last week over. I might've even saved myself from the relapse last weekend. Lessons here to learn. I've only watched one of Cam's videos so far (about valuableness of time and energy) so I would like to watch more when I have time. I don't remember much from that relapse but I do know not to test yourself. Basically, don't get cocky and try to do something that's dangerous. That's how I lost to the TV addiction and my day sorta fell apart due to a sense of "missingness". Since I'm thinking long term, for the most part I will probably stop playing video games, social media and most youtube for a long time so remind myself of that.
  5. Day 1 School day so obviously I had less opportunity to "indulge". I felt fine about it, nothing that special I could figure out. In fact, my day had been sorta in a rush since I had a lot to do. Barely any time to reflect and feel. I did meet an urge when my little brother watched TV. At first, I was interested but reminded myself not to go any further. Lessons for me? Remind yourself you have a TV addiction to get through. Some further thoughts. I wonder how I could help my little brother with this. He's very young but, I just don't know. I hope to at least give him good advice. Happy reading! Stay curious, for until everything disappears.
  6. Day 0 Broke streak again. Though less serious than before, it's still serious. I broke the streak by watching TV shows when my little brother was watching TV. I felt compelled and curious on what episodes the TV show had. It was also the end of the day and I was tired from doing various things that were both productive and unproductive. I have to remind myself. Me watching TV shows at this point is a obsession. If it wasn't, why didn't I quit after the first episode and go do something I had wanted to do next. TV shows are almost an addiction to me. Still, don't be ashamed, just accept this and move on with your life. It's for your future.
  7. Day 0 Gamequitter-wise, I think I need to readjust the rules No Video Games No Social Media (Except Educational content) No Videos or TV shows (Except Educational and News related) Can't really escape them huh. Still, this should solve like 90%. I don't know why I broke the streak back there. I guess I thought of my life and thought of my old life and saw my current life is too stressful for me. Since I learned more about comfort, I think I should make sure to accept your abilities and indulge in comfort once a while. Here's a question though. What comfort to choose from?
  8. 2 Day 0 (Didn't Journal) Worst part is, I don't remember what happened. It was as if I just blanked out which is really concerning.
  9. Hey Bird by Bird. I appreciate your view. It seems comfort shouldn't be this evil thing. It's about balancing comfort and discomfort which most accurately reflects your wishes. I read more about this and realized that humans tend to go for things that are stable, which is usually comforting. I believe this supports your arguement that comfort is not something to throw away. Now I believe that habits and comfort are related in that habitual rituals are comforting to us. So if we are to change our habits, we must strive for a new comfort level, not a ever-changing level, unless we're comfortable with that. Reaching out of your comfort zone requires step by step climbing to a higher comfort level, while reminding ourselves that we can suffer for better. Basically, go for that new comfort zone.
  10. Day 3 I feel fine right now about this game quitting journey. I can see now that without games and social media and most videos to fill my soul, I'm slowly getting more productive on non-school days. I still notice how much I surf the web sometimes which is a concern. Since right now it's a challenge to see whether I'm surfing the web or not, I don't know if I should include them in the rules (to be honest, I feel a little scare adding them to the rules, a concern). Now lessons I can teach myself. With an empty soul, I now realize after watching one of Cam's videos how valuable time and energy is to me. I'll admit that I usually don't act as if it's the case but I know that I want to ingrain this belief into my lifestyle.
  11. Day 2 (No Journal) Summary: Little worse urges. These past 2 days not memorable to me so concerned.
  12. Day 0 I broke the streak. My first failure huh. This reminds me that even if the journey is easy, I still have a long journey ahead. I'm extending the rules to the following. No video games You can only watch music and educational videos. No social Media (though news is allowed since my dad frequently watches and analyses it) It might be harder, but they all seem to sorta sum up my internet surfing problems. Plus, looking at one of them usually makes me feel like watching the others, since they put me in a "I failed" mood. Why did I break the streak? I don't know for sure. I didn't do my morning routine and when my dad since if I could use the computer, I said that I'll use it. Ended up just consuming my entire day. I feel very sad and very not in mood. Here's my reflection to myself. Comfort is an addiction, growth comes from discomfort. Which to choose? Choose growth because this growth will positively impact not only your future but the entire world's future. Currently, I feel a bit anguish and just not in mood, moody per say. I'm going to keep the bolded in mind for the future.
