  1. Greetings all, I've been doing short v-logs for my journals. I've found them to be more useful than typing it up as I write a lot for work and talking through the stuff I am observing has been more helpful also. The channel is here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnPInylyJAmjw8htmuO33Qg I'm not trying to build a youtube career, genuinely. I have a great job already. But if there are people who like that way of interacting more or want to follow along with someone in a more personal way while they quit themselves, they're up there and up to day 26, so plenty of days to start wi
  2. Mate, Similar situation here with all of that. I think the hiding it from the partner is part of the Man Child Cave theory I have. Stick with the outdoor pursuits and if you're indoor, make sure you have a list of things to do inside that aren't gaming or adjacent to gaming. If you want to see more being done, how about doing it yourself? Good luck sir, and good luck with the IVF stuff. It's no joke but well worth it if you are successful.
  3. Hey all, Todays video is about when the universe shuts a door on you because it's not right for you and how that repeated for me recently with games and cards. Why it happens and what to do if you feel it happen. All personal experience and opinions but things that have resonated with me greatly.
  4. Greetings all, In order to make journaling easier, mine will be on youtube as 10 minute long video logs (ish). For those of you who don't want to read or reply in the forum, this may interest. I'm not trying to build a career on youtube, it's just the easiest way for me to get my thoughts off paper and out into the world. As JP says, "Your speech creates your reality" (paraphrased) and that's why my journals will be in video format. Days 1-3 are on the channel now. Thanks, and kia kaha to all you quitters. Link to first video:
  5. That's the sacrifice of changing your life. There is no gain without sacrifice. Embrace it, the pain tells you you're doing it right. It should hurt.
  6. Then my suggestion is to do your best to remove as much of gaming from your life as you can and that may mean sacrificing things you want. I have the same issue with video editing and my desktop, but I've removed all steam, origin, bookmarks to sites, youtube subs etc, so when you're on the machine, it's just work.
  7. Thanks. I am ready for the struggle. As it is said "life is pain and you learn to enjoy it."
  8. Hey mate, You're on the right path, small changes are easier to maintain. However, you may need to ditch the things that allow you to relapse. Your PC is probably on of those things. Reading your post, it seems like you think about WoW in terms of playing it, and not in terms of the damage it's done to you. This leads you to compromise with yourself. removing the portals that allow you to relapse is an important step in breaking from addiction. An example from my experience with quitting drugs, I have to get rid of all the equipment and tools around that habit. Even one glass pipe is
  9. Greetings all, My name is Sam. I'm a 37 year old kiwi living in the US. I started playing videogames when I was around 12 or 13, when it was almost more educational than leisure. This developed into a habit after high school on consoles, but eventually I got a PC and it was daily, for hours. WoW was what really sucked me in though and from 2004 onwards it has been a part of my life that I've spend well over 10's of thousands of dollars on over the last 20 years. Consoles, new PCs, new games, subscriptions to websites that talked about games, swag, merch etc. During all this time, I was a
