  1. I haven't completed it yet. I'm on the discipline part which is what I seriously need to work on.
  2. Thank you. It's a Chinese Hotpot, there seems to be a market not properly covered. Dancing is a great way to relieve stress.
  3. I stopped on the 22nd/23rd of June. I had to give away my Battle.net account to a poor Venezuelan boy. My carpel tunnel has gone now, it's nice having feeling back in my left hand again. I do however play wii lego games with my niece and nephew on Sundays if they are down. When they go I pack up the wii and put it back in the draw since lego games don't engross me. Apart from that I haven't played any mobile games, flash games, consoles or pc's. I have been watching a lot of letsplays on youtube which I'll definately need to cut out. Sometimes I get lonely, that makes me want to seek the company of friends rather than the hazey flicker of a monitor. Maybe it'll make me want to try dating again but I'll probably be too busy anyway. For the last month I have been working on starting a restaurant in my home city. Everything seems to be slotting in well at the moment and the numbers currently look promising. For the last couple of days I been wanting to buy overwatch again and start gaming. I know this is a bad idea, both restauranting and gaming would take up 28 hours out of a day. I been dancing again and trying to get involved socially. Out of all the wrong things I done 3 years ago, stopping dancing was the worst. Anyway, thanks. There's a good chance I wouldn't have moved on without this website and Cam's support. Well back to the spreadsheets, good luck to everyone with their detox.
  4. For a while I have been feeling lonely. It would be nice to have a time that I don't hate 1: my birthday 2: valentines day 3: New years eve/new years day 4: Halloween It would be great to look forward to all these occasions, except halloween, that's a stupid holiday. I've stopped gaming for 2 months now but I'm consuming more youtube videos on gaming. Netflixing bit too much. I'm using as a crutch just like my gaming before I quit, so it's like gaming lite. I'm doing this because I feel lonely at times, loneliness leads me to be unmotivated. Lack of motivation plus a low mood sets me infront of youtube for hours. I have set myself better things to do but don't have the drive to get out of that funk. Today I set aside my tasks and went to see my friend to go watch a film at the cinema. He needed the company also since he has more issues than me to deal with. We are both different in a way that he doesn't embrace any loneliness, where I embrace my loneliness too much (not attempting in meeting women) So I was wondering if you could do a video on dealing with loneliness. Why I feel it, how to manage it. Is loneliness really the worst feeling in the world? What do you do if you phone your friends and they are too busy to pick up. In Beijing I used the Couch surfing app to meet people and that staved off loneliness for the majority of the trip. It was pretty useful and kept me busy. But connections with people were fleeting at times. On my birthday it really hit me and I got super depressed. I was homesick and when I got back I was sick of home. Anyway, my next task is to reduce my consumption and I feel that could be dealt with by managing my loneliness. Cheers
  5. Just noticed it's been around 60 days of no gaming. None at all since my last relapse in June 22.
  6. I haven't been doing my challenges or logs or daily errands for a while now. I personally feel it's ok since I'm taking in much more from this visit to China. I'm tired and under rested, against my efforts of learning Chinese my communication is hit and miss with a population that don't speak English. The signs, notices, roads and places are all in Chinese which little I understand. The weather is humid, sticky and boiling with terrential rain at times. The air is off the scale polluted, streets are dirty and most toilets are squatters with no available toilet paper. My digestive system is doing gymnatics at times because I'm not use to the food, which doesn't help with the toilet situation. I have travel anxiety where I get nervous that on a coach or train I'm going to piss myself, even though I don't need to go. I'm 1000's of miles from home, my mobile has a battery life of a lemming, my cash card been declined from fraud protection. There is no youtube, google maps, google drive, google search, google anything, the alternative is in Chinese. I'm over my head, overwhelmed, under rested, mostly lost with no real plan to speak of. At this moment I am happy. I have good friends who try to help me out as much as they can. I met 3 people on a hiking trip to the great wall who I regard such appreciation for. One of which paid for my flight to inner mongolia and my taxi to the airport. I finally have the cash card working to pay her back. I even had a random kid today buy me an icecream out of the blue. I have some plan when I come back home. Things to work on. I'll be continuing on with my challenge, my daily workload.
