  1. How do you get enough fats in your diet?
  2. @The radtech It took too much time away from things I need to focus on like school, chores, studying. I like having the peace of mind knowing that I can do chores, school, studying without having to worry about what I'll be doing next in some game. Gives more time for things I care about
  3. @goodvibes I don't own any gaming consoles, my PC is the main issue but seems fine now that I uninstalled all games. Looked at the hobby link and will do part-time job and working out. I'll consider doing that journal, thanks ?
  4. Thanks Erdall! I looked at that tool briefly, I'll choose part-time work, working out and podcast for now as I feel those would be the most valuable to me. For the journaling I like writing down in a notebook. I like to be old school like that haha. Currently downloading that podcast episode onto my device as I type this message. Thank you so much ?
  5. Hey Everyone, I'm a young adult University student from Canada and want to quit games so I can be at peace in my life. Since picking up games over the past 2 months I've always been thinking about what's the next thing and haven't had as much peace of mind. My main goal now that I have quit for good (and deleting ALL accounts I can possibly find) is to find a part time job that is flexible with my class schedule. It's a very small step for now yes, but it's a baby step onto my next BIG GOAL of getting my University degree in Business for a better future ^-^ Any way you can help? Accountability. Please send a DM I'd love to chat ? P.S. I haven't used this account in a while, I forgot the login and thought I didn't need it for sometime please excuse the signature if there is any.
  6. I started running about 2 weeks ago and would like to know how to train my legs properly. When I run for about 1 mile my feet and legs start to get sore just in general and I'm not really sure if I should do some additional training on top of running, if it is the shoes etc. What can I do to train better for my runs so my feet and legs get sore? Thanks in advance for the input - I really appreciate it
  7. Hey, so I do calisthenics and I struggle to find the time to workout/don't schedule it really. What are some things that I can do to better schedule it and fit it into my day?
  8. Glad you're here dude! First 90 days can be considered tricky, especially consider you've been doing it the past 10 years. I'm two years into this and I no longer have a desire to play games. That's really good that you were able to accomplish a couple of things, while still gaming - I probably would of failed my last year of college if I didn't quit. Good on ya!!
  9. It took me quite a while to get over the bored issue. It'll all a matter of finding ways to fill your need from gaming to different hobbies. Active, Resting, Social, Achievement Base. For resting what I like doing and what has really helped is reading, cooking, podcasts, getting rid of stuff (I'm a minimalist in decluttering phase), journaling (bullet journaling and also documenting thoughts from an eventful day/creative writing), also I'm a Christian so I aim to read my bible and do devotions. I believe Cam also made a list of hobby ideas if you sign up for his email list. Hope this helps!!
  10. Hi all haven't been on here in a while so I thought I'd re-introduce myself. Hi there! I'm a creative and Canadian blood. I quit games because I found it as a MAJOR distraction from the things I wanted to do, used it as a massive crutch. I quit so I can stress less and not procrastinate on the important things. Such as getting work done on time and getting enough sleep. I don't like to say my goals but I'd like to do more of the stuff that I enjoy doing and less of the stuff that I don't like doing. My main goal is to have a solid morning routine AND a group of calisthenics workouts that I like doing and getting into that more. So far I've got most of my upper body covered and need to find workouts for abs and legs. I also started running and a BIG BIG goal with that is to have better endurance - I've always struggled with that when I was younger and want to improve in that area. Feel free to reach out to me via email (email on website) if you have any questions, the door is always open and I'd be glad to help P. S. I quit June 2016
  11. Hi all, Just wanted to make a quick post saying I'm back on the forums now. I took a break for a bit but I'm happy to say I'm back. Haven't played games in over 4 months and initially quit just over a year ago
  12. Welcome! When I first quit I was also super bored, it was just a phase for me. It might be the same for you too!
  13. I decided to quit playing mobile games on June 14th, 2016 and then decided to quit video games all together. At first I decided it was just 90 days but after I completed my 90 days I no longer had the desire to play games. Quitting games was a spur of the moment decision that I made after reading Cam's eye opening article. I then realized all the things I missed out on as a result of gaming and just staying in my comfort zone. So I stopped playing all together. I didn't reduce it little by little and then eventually stop. I will be covering 5 areas of my life where I improved since I quit gaming. ONE Adventure - At the time I was creating video game let's play's on YouTube and a friend reminded me about the stuff that I was passionate about such as a short film I made in High School so I refined it a little bit and uploaded it. When I went to Cypress Hills I took my camera and recorded the experience to remember it. When I was there it opened up perspective of all the places you can go and explore that are real and not a video game. Also gave me a little bit of the traveler's mindset. I have a bike and there are still places in my city that I probably haven't biked to yet. I discovered that I love exploring new places, even if it is going on a different bike path, travel destination, somewhere I don't usually go anything really. TWO GO FOR IT - About this time last year I did a school presentation about keyboards and how the typical qwerty keyboard is inefficient and how Dvorak is much much better! I have been using my phone in the Dvorak layout since that presentation and I am now using it when typing this now too! I made the switch about 2-3 months ago and I am about back up to 40-50 words per minute! At first I got doubts from friends and family in my life saying that I am already really good at qwerty and I should not be going to Dvorak. Now I am using Dvorak exclusively, and it goes to show me that I can do anything I want to do (given that I put in time and effort) despite what others around me say! THREE Priorities - This is what I was like, not exactly but had the mindset of that. But I am also getting way more rest now that I quit gaming!! Last year when I was in college I kept falling asleep in classes and it was a big issue and I was made fun of in class for it. I didn't take it well considering I already had a lack of sleep. I also did not have enough time to finish the final project last year because my prorities were gaming and I left the project to the last minute. I have improved a ton compared to last year! I have more time towards my studies and I am making it my number one focus! Along with sleep People around me in general have told me that I seem more mature and grown up now. Only thing I have to work on is waking up early and deadlines. Also, I can finally do stuff I'd like to such as going through old documents that were piling up, making my walk in closet a walk in closet again (you could barely open the door a while back) also selling things I don't use. FOUR Soical - I wrote a little article about this topic here. Essentially I have found myself being more outgoing and likely to start conversations with new people around me. FIVE Organization - I feel more organized in general and more in control of my life than ever before! I'm growing day by day the only thing that matter is that I get something done that is productive. I am also doing more writing than ever before. I started a journal of my own that I write in very often Some things I would like to mention, I recently quit my current job to focus on school and last weekend I sold all my DS games along with a couple of PS4 games! I just need to sell the PS4, I have it all ready to go for it to be picked up Say hey in a reply! -Dylan
