  1. Day 86 - 90: June 24th - 28th, 2022 So it's been 90 days without gaming in Roblox, and I have successfully finished the entire detox! Great thanks to myself for not giving up especially when I had withdrawal symptoms, and also thanks to everyone who have supported me along the way.🙂 Well, my exams are around the corner and I guess I will continue on this detox. Will be keeping my entries here short. Have a nice day to all of you reading this :)) ----------------------- Yes I've done it, and it is my first step to self discipline. I believe I can still move on and improve in the future. Maybe I will be starting another counter on creating another habit (haven't decided yet).
  2. Day 81 - 85: June 19th - 23th, 2022 Lol still can't believe i'm near the end. It doesn't feel real yet it's real. Have been sleeping early these days, at around 11-1130 pm. Have been really surprised by the effect. My mind was a lot clearer than before and I would certainly love my brain to function properly every day instead of being so drowsy. Aiming to get on bed at 1030-11pm tonight, since I don't have much to do today. Was in a pretty good mood today. :)) (comparing with disasters in previous days..) Will be continue counting my days without games after the detox as well. ----------------- 5 days to go!
  3. Day 75 - 80: June 13th - 18th, 2022 My finals are coming soon, my other schoolmates are already preparing while I don't feel like studying at the moment.. Tests and schoolwork are piling up, and I have quite a number of projects due on Monday. Will be adjusting my sleep schedule starting from tonight, hopefully creating a good habit of sleeping early during my exams. (I still remember cramming before the nights last year - i slept at 1 and woke up at 5 for almost the whole week..) It will not happen again. ----------------- 10 days till I finish the entire detox
  4. Day 71 - 74: June 9th - 12th, 2022 A typical weekend with a moderate number of tasks to do. I found it difficult to concentrate during weekends - I ended up procrastinating again. So I pushed all the work to Sunday, and I still managed to finish them. I’m only about two weeks till I finish the entire program. I won’t be going back to roblox ever again. First it’s because my computer doesn’t have much space left. Second, it's crashing more frequently than before. Third, I feel degraded when I know the fact that I’m actually playing with a bunch of 8-year-old kids. Lastly and most importantly, I’ve read an article today that says the CEOs of gaming companies never allow their own children to dive into games. Of course they won’t lol. They know the harmful consequences the best, cause they are the ones who invented these addictive games. They are great psychologists who know exactly what we’re craving for - challenges and success. How selfish are they? They’re using daily awards, challenges, and the fake sense of achievement to pull us into the abyss of addiction, to make us ignore our progress in reality, while they earn huge profits and their children are being more and more successful lol. I feel so dumb and angry jumping into this trap and sacrificing all my precious time in it. Last day till my milestone ! (75 days)
  5. Day 68, 69, 70: June 6th, 7th, 8th 2022 What I’m happy/grateful for: - Have revised for 4 hours today (comparing with doing nothing) - Staying healthy, eating healthy food - Spent an average of 1 hour per day on writings - Reading every day - Found the Atomic habits cheatsheet, which gave me some motivation to work hard and create new habits - gained new insights on how to work effectively too Next milestone: 75 days It's 5 days till my next milestone!
  6. Day 67: June 5th, 2022 Things I’ve done today: - Applied for a medical programme. Hope I’ll get accepted! - Rewrote an essay to improve - Did revision for a test tomorrow - Read 10 pages of a book today - Made some plans for the coming weeks What I’m happy/grateful for: - I’m alive and healthy - Peaceful at home - Did exercise in the evening - Wore new clothes - No cravings for video games Next milestone: 75 days It's 8 days till my next milestone!
  7. Day 66: June 4th, 2022 Chatted with an online friend today who I haven’t been in contact with for so long. Updated my computer and the entire interface changed, looks like I have to get used to it soon. Slept very well and stood up late in the morning. The afternoon was mainly spent on a meeting, then I used the rest of my time on schoolwork. What I'm grateful/happy for: - I'm alive and healthy - Listened to my favorite soothing music - Ate my favorite fruit - Slept well - finally came. Next milestone: 75 days It's 9 days till my next milestone!
  8. Day 62, 63, 64: May 31st, June 1st, 2nd 2022 Normal school days but my computer was malfunctioning. It crashed a lot recently, so I did some research and got a fix on that. Hope it’ll go well. Day 65: June 3rd, 2022 It has been a long time since I had a casual talk with my dad. Went for a walk in a nearby park after dinner for around an hour, and we shared a lot of our thoughts together. I really treasure these moments since we rarely had free time or the right occasions to have a casual chat. I’ve learned a lot from him, about life, career, and relationships. Tomorrow I’ll be going to finish all my schoolwork, and I will not procrastinate. I need to get them done before Sunday. My detox is going very well, and I am definitely not going to give up. NEVER. It feels like a miracle to reach 65 days, and I am not going to destroy it. Next milestone: 75 days It's 10 days till my next milestone!
  9. Thanks and hope you'll keep at it too! Also thanks for doing extra research :):) I've got this and you too!! ----------------------------------- Haven't got the mood to update journals here these days, but I'll get it updated soon. I guess I'll be updating journals every two to three days and combine them together, especially during the last few weeks before my finals.
  10. Day 59, 60: May 28th + 29th, 2022 A typical weekend. Day 61: May 30th, 2022 Oh when will it be Friday again. Got my result today and it was at the average, still got some room for improvement - luckily I didn’t fail Wasn’t feeling as delighted as before because of low productivity. Currently I have lost my progress on all kinds of studying and I’ve been either daydreaming or wasting my time on social media. I procrastinated until the last minute possible before deadlines.. But still, I am continuing on my detox program no matter what. Getting closer and closer to the end! Next milestone: 75 days It's 14 days till my next milestone!
  11. Day 56: May 25th, 2022 Did sports again. Love it, yet it’s tiring. Have to prepare for two tests coming tomorrow and on Friday -> the next few days will be busy. Was productive today in general and followed my plan. Will be having my finals soon, so I will be recalling previous topics. I don't like cramming at nights before exams. Started reading another book that’s questionable. Interesting. Day 57 + 58: May 26th + 27th, 2022 Have been really busy on Thursday - took an exam outside of school, then returned home in the late afternoon and wrote two essays, prepared a presentation as well as did revision and a practice paper for a test on the next day. Slept for 5 hours. The test was more difficult than I’d expected, so as my other classmates. I'm trying to expect low on my results so I won't get too depressed if I overestimated myself. The harder the questions, the more obvious our abilities are. Continued to volunteer as usual. No cravings for video games - I watched some netflix for leisure. Next milestone: 60 days It's 2 days till my next milestone!
  12. Day 54 + 55: May 23rd + May 24th, 2022 Had a lot of free time but didn’t want to study. Have been binge-watching again, but still no cravings for games. I have to stick to my plans for sure.
  13. Day 52 + 53: May 21st + May 22nd, 2022 Both days were great because I mainly stayed with my family. Tried new restaurants and went to new places. Went back to chess again. Next milestone: 60 days It's 7 days till my next milestone!
  14. Day 51: May 20th, 2022 Did sports at school today but it wasn’t as enjoyable as before - it was tedious. Took a nap for an hour or so and volunteered this afternoon, then did a paper at night. Spent another hour on music. Wasn’t sleepy at night but I still tried to get to bed early. No cravings for video games. Next milestone: 60 days It's 9 days till my next milestone!
  15. Day 50: May 19th, 2022 A normal school day with no cravings for video games. Studied two chs of biology in the afternoon then spent the night on listening to and playing music. Not much schoolwork to do today. Next milestone: 60 days It's 10 days till my next milestone!
