    Yes, I've read about this concept in The Willpower Instinct and The Science of Self-Discipline. It seems that for some people beating their record might cause a relapse. It might be better to only acknowledge it and move on instead of celebrating it. I'm approaching my rehab differently this time by keeping a journal, keeping myself busy and by setting a very clear goal. I feel like I can keep going. It got way easier after a month, but I'm ready for when the addiction strikes back. I'm waiting, come at me. 😉 BTW, what's your method for staying on track when life gets hard and you're in a dip? Day 33/34/35 Done. Stay hard.

    Day 18 I wasn't productive at all today. I've been following the coverage of hurricane Ida in USA pretty much all day. I hope you're all ok out there. Stay hard.

    @Zubb Thank you so much for your kind words. I'm trying to create a schedule to bring some structure to my life. I know I'm more productive and relaxed when I have a whole day planned out, but I couldn't maintain a schedule when I was gaming. That's why I'm currently reading practical books on self-discipline and time management and I'm trying to incorporate small changes here and there. I recommend Atomic Habits as a practical one and Can't Hurt Me as an inspiration (but it also has many practical tips). Hopefully, these improvements will accumulate overtime. When it comes to leisure activities, I play electric guitar and listen to a lot of music, but I really try to listen to it by playing a whole album from start to finish and paying attention to details - I recommend everyone to do that from time to time, because imo you'll appreciate the artist more. I spend more time with my family as well. Day 17 Done. Stay hard.
