    Transcendency journalentry #23 I was playing, and better things could be done during that time... I want to play, but I know I shouldn't... I will want to play, but I hope I won't do it... I want to thrive, yet I'm afraid of taking leap in my life...

    Transcendency journalentry #22 Ok... So I couldn't omit that one... RuneScape - shadow of my past... Although I very much enjoyed it and even now I sometimes crave it, I know it was that game that made me hook to computer. From my experience with it, company behind this game used many psychological aspects to make you play more and now pay more. Since the leaving of original creators of the game, it really went downhill, into the treacherous practices. To all players of this game, be conscious about what this game brings, because in my case, it was only lost time where I could have my childhood, make friends, learn new skills, improve my social skills, maybe have a girlfriend, improve my finances, spend time with my family, create better life and the list go on... There is always a better thing to do, than gaming!

    Transcendency journalentry #21 Long time no... Entries... Over a year have passed since I've last wrote. Gaming wasn't an issue since then, only few, minor, 15 minutes relapses. This didn't affect my life in negative way, but still, better activities could be done. Sometimes I have a feeling of emptiness, like something is missing in my life. I desire a calm life, yet it is impossible to always omit negativity. It would be nice to have my own business but I'm so afraid that it will fail, and I won't have any funds to support myself. Just a quick share of my chaotic thoughts to ease my mind. Thank you all, who read this!
  4. Hej, wielu z nas udało się z tym wygrać więc uda i tobie! Po prostu się nie poddawaj pomimo upadków.
  5. Wooot! Party is coming!
  6. No computer, only studying. Good luck.
  7. Taking responsibility for your actions is an evidence of maturity. Sometimes I thought I was completely unprepared for an exam. But then I've got very easy questions. If I wouldn't show up, I would waste such a good chance to pass. This thought me to always show up.

    Transcendency journal entry #20 Days gaming free: 3 Days procrastination free: 3 PM free: 3 I went to the gym today. Received my training plan and diet. I was a bit stressed(anxious) about how will my first training go, but my trainer was very kind and explained every move to me. This way anxiety quickly turned into feeling of positive excitment. I'm getting my physical activity and nutrition into a completely new(higher) level - something completely opposite to what I would done when I was gaming. I'm really proud of that, despite the feeling of... missing gaming(which I'm not proud to feel; ashamed in fact).
  9. WHO gaming disorder publication is our success! We're getting heard and recognized, it's really pleasing to see that. Don't really bother about distance breaking up your relationship. I've been in same situation where distance rose, but when it came back to normal all this showed to me that this bond is really strong. I know that relationship requires presence, but if it can't survive distance, what about tougher situations?
  10. Congratulations on your certification and studying! I really like your goals, they are so simple yet so "game changing"(pun intended). Good luck on them!
  11. Just don't give up @IfIEverGetAroundToLiving we all started just like you and most of succeded! Just don't give up. WARNING: Amazing life awaits you! ;)

    Transcendency journal entry #19 Days gaming free: 2 Days procrastination free: 2 Yesterday I've went to the gym and signed up for three trainings a week. I've also talked with personal trainer which will make a training plan and diet for me. I hope that this will increase my commitment into my personal development. Today, nothing much happened. I had to stay additional hour in my work. Spent some time with my gf and now I'm trying to get my tasks done. Just one of many boring days in my life. WARNING: Don't read following spoiler if you feel prone to cravings or relapse.
  13. Hi Pharmacist, it's good to hear that despite some relapses, you're still fighting. Keep in mind though, that it's not only about quitting video games, it's about choosing wisely what to do with your life, so plan your day, do new things and get better at old ones. Games although very appealing, are nothing compared to real life. Remember that.

    Transcendency journal entry #18 Days gaming free: 0 Days procrastination free: 0 It supposed to be a transcendency year, but instead I've relapsed. Funny thing is, that I've managed to achieve all the planned tasks. Unfortunatelly, some spare time lead to relapse, which to someone unfamiliar with gaming addiction might seem like nothing, because it didn't had negative impact on my life. Still, I feel bad because of that time which is now gone, which could be used for something productive which brings result and not increase my kill counter. I crave to do things which give results, which are productive. The struggle starts again this week!
