Hi, I'm David Comeau, I'm 27 years old, I'm from Canada. I have been gaming since a very young age and I always had some issue with video game. I was born with a mental handicap, which touch my ability to express my-self and understanding other peoples, so I had a lot of trouble and anxiety with my social life. I was also diagnose with attention problem. So learning was very hard thing for me to do and I was always behind everyone else. When I start to game it now that create the bad habit to escape from the hard thing that is to learn. And I was isolating my-self because I was very shy. During the age 19, I started to developp a passion for the guitar, but I was still very much addicted to gaming. As I get older, there were other art skills that I wanted to developed, Art Skill like: Composing Song, Drawning, Creative Writing, Making Video but starting this were requiring time and dedication. So, thanks to Game Quitter video I manage for the first time in my life to stop playing for at least a month but than I restart to watch playthrough and videogame related stuff on Youtube so I think it wasn't any better than playing it So today I'm restarting from day 1!
FIRST DAY Good things I have finally tidied up room. That took me 3 bloody hours. Who knew my room could accomodate so much dust, Jesus. More than that, I accidentally found the missing part from my MOTTO Racing gear ? That hit me hard. A sudden wave of playing urge almost overwhelmed me but ya boi stays strong. EDIT. Watching video of other people quitting gaming (HOBEDAGA`s story) helped me. especially this guy. He`s a legend Spent time with my father. That was endearing really. We talked, played chess. Too bad I`ve wasted so much time digging my head in sand. But look redemption is what matters here right? It was funny to stumble upon my urge to leave as soon as we talked. I understand why. My father was often asking about my grades, plans for future, thoughts, anything, hell, he really was trying. And me being a depressed junkie, hating that sense of guilt, so dense I could touch it, I would crudely end the convo and rush to my messy room playing computer games with lights switched off. Bad things I feel like shit already. Well it is an indication of me being an addict, right? And I don`t want that. I want to be free. Thoughts Does the fact I am quitting mean that I shall not play again anymore? Should it be as fawl and wrong as doing drugs or commiting crimes for me now? What about this time I have spent playing games? Should I blame myself for it? What if I turn to pro gamer? Like, isn`t it wonderful to be hooked on something and bring bacon home at the same time. But, from the other perspective, say I have managed to become pro, will I be agile? Active? Socially charismatic? Perhaps it`s my brain trying to find a way to play some more Well, here it is, folks! OH! one more thing.. Here it is my visual XP bar for not playing the game ? How do you like it
Hello everyone! I have been playing video games for as long as I can remember. TF2, L4D, CSGO bring me sweet memories when my friends and I were having fun together, I have even dated some girl online. Of course, all of that was fickle so I can`t even play those games anymore because I know I would never have the same fun I used to. That puts me off returning to those games. Rancours? I don`t know, maybe The thing that made me do a first step is being fed up with toxicity and my dissatisfaction with gaming routine. I have always considered myself getting the short end of the stick despite investing so much time into gaming. I just couldn`t be the best there. It really hit home. Recently, I have tried to make drastic changes in my life but always relapsed. The breaking point was dev of game (I have grinded 800h in) announcing that the game would be cancelled soon (it all turned out to be as a christmas joke, it was not the dev, but some other dude). Then I realised how fragile and how pointless that I am doing. I was offended by it deeply but it was like a wake up call. Yet I still relapsed, but bounced back. I understand now what I am lacking. Support and an example of others. So here I am 22, Russia, and I am fond of so many things guys, this is crazy:D front-end programming, game dev, harmonica, guitar, parkour, learning new languages. But most importantly, I am fond of people being nearby. Maybe, the main reason why I ve been playing hardcore is that I just couldn`t make friends and I hated being alone. A lot of going to change after New Year. But here are my goals for now 1. Find a hobby and replace my idle existence with it. Write about it here 2. Pass 90 day detox and comment about it here 3. Get a job and earn good money I ll start my challenge tomorrow because today was the day i relapsed once again.
He has shown to be part of the squad. This video proves it. Check it out: Some thoughts: Many of you probably know the guy, his magnificent facial hair and (our) shared love for videogames, videogame OSTs to be precise. His videos pile up millions of views (and it wouldn't be strange if some of you have stopped watching them because of triggers, I did but it was more in an effort to stop browsing Youtube in general rather than gaming stuff in particular). I'm sharing this video with you guys, in this section, because many of us need that little push in order to develop our creativity (that's what the section is about, right?). Many of us spend a lot of time thinking: "Man, I wish I could do this or that, take up that instrument or that art, set up my own thing, be noticed and famous, boats and bitches", and so on. But we go to bed without daring, we just talk and daydream. Day after day. We consume, we never create. We are afraid to step forward, to take up the challenge. We fill our head with excuses: it's weird, it's not going to work, it sucks, I'm not ready, I don't have money, I need to get this or that done first. And at the end of the day, you get that nagging feeling in your chest, your neck or your stomach. It's the lie cramps. It's what you get when you know you're fooling yourself. It's your guilty conscience, saying: "Every day you are not doing what you love, or loving what you do, is a day wasted". Don't fall for this guys. Love yourselves. Love what you do, do what you love. Shame and failure are illusions, cognitive fallacies constructed to make us blend in among the rest, to expand and nurture our comfort zone. Think about your own reasons, what motivates you, what makes you passionate, what is restraining you. Stop consuming. Get to work. Get to have fun. Get to live.
