  1. Day 1: 2nd, November, 2022 A day without Roblox. Still wasting too much time on social media. ---- Next milestone: 15 days
  2. Hello everyone, I'm back again. Been away for around 3 months now and I have this sudden urge to come back and take a look at this forum. To be honest, I am still really surprised that I had completed the 90-day full detox in the past. I kinda want to seek my original intention when I first joined this forum and started my detox journey. Life has been going well so far, there's neither huge traumas or success. I've been logging my journal on my phone daily, and also posting my learning progress on another platform. I guess my subconscious mind brought me back here, as there is this underlying problem - addiction to social media and games, and I don't know how to deal with this. I admit I returned to Roblox again after August even though I completed a detox before, cuz it's still that temptation deep inside myself which continuously pulls me back to it. I kinda understand how a drug addict feels. I am starting another detox again, but I won't be posting as frequently as before.
  3. - focused for 5 hours 40 minutes - learnt about the maillard reaction out of pure interest It's been 2 days since I played a video game
  4. - focused for 5 hours 48 minutes - did a research writing about eyecare - played badminton - did a paper - met a friend who I haven't seen for years It's been 1 day since I played a video game
  5. I confess that I relapsed again last week... But I'm going to continue the detox. It's better than doing nothing about it. I spent a great time with my family today. Now I'm going to read and sleep afterwards.

  11. 2nd detox Day 4: July 22nd, 2022 Nice day, no cravings at all. I will be going to a summer camp soon. Just remembered I still have work due tomorrow. But I'll read then finish it later. I'm going to sleep early tonight. ------------------
  12. 2nd detox Day 3: July 21st, 2022 Said farewell to my teacher(they're leaving soon), I personally admire them. Will be doing sports in the late afternoon, and reading some writing series. Will also be organizing my clothes later on, then do homework in the evening. The detox went well, I'm gonna read for most of the time. It's maybe the most interesting and simplest way to improve my writing. Successfully deleted my Roblox account, I can't find myself from the website now. All of my progress is deleted - that includes everything I've paid for. All my connections with online friends are gone. This really is a clean goodbye. I anticipate having withdrawal symptoms in every ~20 days (that's when I got symptoms during the last detox), I will be paying special attention during those days, and I hope deleting the account can help. Found a piece of news report interesting. ------------
  13. 2nd detox Day 2: July 20th, 2022 Today went quite well. Still replying to Roblox’s emails, and soon my account is going to be erased permanently. It feels relieving. I have to think more positively. Going to play some piano and continue on python. Will also be revising new materials learnt today, which signals a new start (lol time flies).
  14. I've just contacted them and I should have done it earlier. Thanks for your advice!
  15. 2nd detox Day 1: July 19th, 2022 I'm writing this to avoid diving back into games. I am disappointed about my results, and I decide to use the holiday for improvement. I will need to be preparing for college entrance exams soon, and this always makes me nervous when I realize I haven't done anything last year. I have been draining too much dopamine into my brain last week, and I seriously need a cut for that. Now I'm going to continue on reading a novel series which I aim to finish reading by this summer. Then, I'm going to play some music soon after that and work on some chem. In the evening, I will be reading the series again and refresh my memory on python. Will be sleeping at 11:00pm tonight. -------------------- "It always seems impossible until it is done." Nelson Mandela I will always keep this in mind.
