  8. Day #0 Need to get back on track. Checking in at the forum needs to be part of my schedule and not just when I feel like doing it.
  9. Day #11 Mindlessly internet browsing and chess are definitely a problem. Need a filter.
  10. Day #10 First check in. All good. Some light cravings.
  11. Day #9 First check in. Gonna need to draw the line with online chess, only chess Over The Board is allowed.
  12. Day #8 Mindlesly Internet browsing is starting to kick in. Played online chess, which could lead to a relapse
  13. Day #7 First check in. Last night had cravings. Still clean. Second check in. Light cravings. Still clean.
  14. Day 6 First check in. Small cravings. Still clean Second check in. Still clean. I feel a bit down.
  15. Day #5 Still clean. The CGAA meetings have members with several years of abstinence. I noticed a trend, most of them suffered from several addictions, they call them their "primary addiction" and their "secondary addiction". It was interesting to see the variety on the age demographics. Perhaps the meetings fulfill the "social" need some got out of video games. But I would say that listening to other people struggling with the same problem proves to be helpful. Second check in: All good. Still clean.
  16. Thanks @Hitaruand @giblets for the warm welcome.
  17. Day #4 First check in. No videogames. I been doing some mindlessly browsing, but will solve by turning off wifi. Second check in. Currently at CGAA meeting. Still clean.
  18. Day #3 First check in. I feel guilt due to not waking up early. But I will resolve this issue. So in the meantime this is what I need to achieve: -Improve schedule (wake up early, sleep early). -Add a format to my posts. -Incorporate physical exercise. Second check in. Still clean. Felt a light craving after gym and dinner, I thought of laying on bed and "relaxing" Bed and smartphone is always a bad idea so I went ahead and had a shower.
  19. Day #2 I am still game free and my mind still strong. I failed to do double check-ins due to yesterday sleeping over at my cousin's house, and spending the whole day with my family.
  20. Day #1 Game Detox plan is as follows. Two check ins during the first 21 days, once in the morning, once in the evening. One check in during days 21 to 50. Two check ins during days 50 to 71. One check during days 72 to 90. Weekly meetings at C.G.G.A. Let's go.
  21. <Dream> Today I dreamt about a bodybuilder who is addicted to cocaine. There was a group of people supporting him, and we all knew he was struggling. We were going on a trip and the bodybuilder couldn't take it anymore and ran off. We were dissapointed but decided to keep the journey. We were traveling by bus and arrived some sort of military bootcamp. This could really had helped the bodybuilder. "It could help anyone" said someone else, while looking at me. I realized that it would beneficial for me to start a detox. <Dream/>
  22. Day 10/90 Too far from my goal.
  23. Day #3/90 Just checking in, feel depressed, saw some streams but found them boring. My diet is getting worse.
  24. Day #2/90 If it wasn´t for the fact that just a couple of days ago I set up filters and deleted game accounts I would be gaming. Just a few mins! It will be fun! I have been taking long naps these past days.
  25. You are so close, keep at it.
