  1. I noticed the same effect for me with single player RPG games... There were times where I could binge a game for a week or so and then *poof* from one day to the other all the motivation and lust for that game was just gone. I hardly ever finished a game... in my life, same goes for books and even movies and series to some extend. Even if they were super exiting I still don't know why that is so. Still I doubt moderation is in any way possible for me at this point of my life. I still procrastinate important tasks way too much. At least programming turned out to be something fun and scratching
  2. Poland is definitely worth a visit and sadly often gets overlooked when people visit europe. No offense but the whole "Paris London and one obligatory italian city" tour many tourists do when they visit us here is kinda sad really But enough off topic I absolutely love your "gratefull" list. There is a lot of energy in beeing thankfull! I once red a great article about thankfullness in a blog I follow (sadly in german only) and I already notice some of the effects Thankfull people are aware of what they have and less likely to get depressed and frustrated. Thankfull people are able to plan
  3. Hello Florian good to have you with us here. A few tipps for the beginning. Make sure to set yourself goals you can achive realisticly and in the given time so that you actually see some progress. I dont know about your workout routine but workout everyday sounds pretty hard for me - if you mean going to the gym.( I would even go so far and say its not healthy to go there everyday since the body needs a day or so to recover from time to time) My next advice would be to make these goals more clear and trackable. "to get more self-esteem" for example sounds nice but what does it actually mean?
  4. Hey Ring short question: What do you mean when you write "failed" behind your list? Like you failed to do it?
  5. TL dr: I tried out space engine and I am not sure if it's considered to be harmfull or harmless. I love space... I loved it before it quitted and I still love it today. Everytime I think about the problems that I can not change in this world (war, suffering, corruption, evil humans doing evil human things, destruction of our world) I just remember how unbelievably huge the universe is and it fills me with this odd feeling of calm and consolation. One of the games I loved to play during my days was one where I would fly a spaceship. Yes.. I know escaping reality But I also really loved the ide
  6. Half way there and things are looking good! Keep going Kiki maybe if you want to you can post some of the designs for the boardgame on the forum? I am super curious
  7. - Behaviors I would like to change Lazy. Forgetful. Lack of Attention. These were changing very quickly when I started my detox. Around 2 weeks in me (and my surroundings) immediately noticed the difference.
  8. Welcome to the community As many others have said there is a lot of information about your problem in the forums. You may also want to watch cams videos where he tackles most if not all of the typical quitting issues Last but not least if you can spare some bucks " respawn" cams book is a very good tool for those who want to quit and need some better guidance. Heck I still read it after my 90 days
  9. I know some people that feel sick each time they're trying to read in any bus, train, tram etc. For me that's weird but it may happen for you too! How about audiobook? This might be the solution for your issue. Greetings, Mad Pharmacist I have the same problem when sitting in a bus I cant read. But I am kinda glad because that keeps me from checking my phone all the time. Audiobooks are great but I dont know how well they work for learning to draw
  10. These are all excellent points! I just want to add one! Take your time for breaks and if possible use the breaks to move your body or even better get outside for some fresh air. There are certain limitations to our brain and it can only focus for so long. Taking a break (no cellphone ) will help regenerate that learning energy. For me I try to do a short break every 25 - 40 minutes and a longer break every 2 hours or so.
  11. Ashley the fact alone that you are ABLE to see your problems is a great start. And in my book, "failing" twice yet still coming back admitting it and asking for advice is the trait of a determined strong willed person Admitting failure takes a ton of willpower to yourself and to others. Do not give up! You ARE making progress even if it may not seem that way. Cam also relapsed pretty hardcore and yet look what he was able to build. Time is the key. Take your time - realize that this is a process that needs time and that we all have our own pace! Keep fighting
  12. Thank you for all the kinf words. I expanded my detox until the end of the year and will celebrate again once I got there And yea the pic is really cool made my day
  13. Words of wisdom! I fell for the same trap during my detox and instead of feeling like I achieved something I started to get really frustrated since I was focusing too much on the negative side. What helped me was tackling each goal in baby steps setting me up for easy succes and just enjoy every evening with the feeling of "one more day where I was strong" Oh yes and welcome to the community
  14. Wow... what a journey. I am still far away from getting my life straight but DAMN does it feel good to have the reminder pop up in your calendar telling you "If you didn't play any video games until now you DID IT - How do you feel?" I felt like a champion for the rest of the schooltime Most of my experiences I already wrote them in my 71 days post. But it got better these last days. I participating in a scholarship for becoming a trainer for nursing (dunno the english words) and I noticed that I can focus a lot better in class. Still I do daydream but it's not as bad as it used to be and
