    Day 4. No gaming but feel hella tired and miss the online “friends”....Someone gave me good advice. It’s alright and even good to acknowledge that you’re sad or scared or angry or grieving. True, someone in the world probably has it worse than you but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t accept that you are experiencing those emotions which are a natural response and perhaps even a remedial human process. I found gaming an excellent distraction and way to suppress sadness. It started when I was 10 and there was family trouble, I’d isolate myself in my room and play pony friends or something like that and forget temporarily about the real world; but that didn’t fix the problem only pushed it aside. Today I acknowledged and accepted my grief over an event that happened last year. Usually I would turn to gaming to numb it all, but I think it would be truly healing to all who are in some way grieving to accept that grief and let it be processed.
  2. Really really inspiring to see you hit day 40. Gives me a lot of hope! I also find running to be a great hobby. It really helps get rid of that energy that gaming seemed to expend. Good luck and stay strong.

    Hi not really into this online stuff but will give it a go for accountability and the great community...day 3 without gaming and feel really tired lol. I was able to exercise more and hang out with friends which was really good. Good luck to all of you out there!
  4. Do y’all feel tired after quitting? Maybe all that lack of dopamine contributes.
  5. Hi, I’m Tess. I graduated college last year during covid and picked up gaming like crazy this past year. I work as a kitchen supervisor and gaming has negatively impacted my social,work, and personal life. I realize I need to stop running and face reality. I’m really grateful to be part of this community with all of you!
