NEW VIDEO: The EASIEST Way to Stop Gaming

Hi everyone

Recommended Posts

Well, it all started when I joined roblox two years ago.

At first, I could still manage my time spent on roblox, I had a healthy relationship with it. However, as I understood more and played more, it eventually became so uncontrollable and addictive that I spent 8 hours on gaming per day. I started to procrastinate on schoolwork, shut up myself from my family, have no communication with others, get scolded by teachers and parents, and was extremely lazy. Like all the other addicted gamers here, I know it's ruining my life, but every day when I woke up, it was always the first thing popping in my head. I just don't feel motivated to achieve realistic goals in my life. I'm just endlessly diving into that instant gratification every single day, all day long. And every night when I'm on my bed, I stare at the ceiling blankly and reflect on what have I done today. Well. Another day wasted. No matter how many motivational videos I've watched, how many limits I've set for myself, it had no use. The crave for that dopamine is too strong, and it's really difficult to find some other way to overcome it.

Today, I realized that I should stop. Tbh, I wanted to stop for thousands of times before and every time I deleted the software, I would just download it back and forget all about my determination. I hope this time I could finally stop, or at least stop for one week and see how it goes. So I joined here today, hoping I could get back onto the right track, before anything gets worse. I'm going to log my daily journals in here, and keep track on everything happening during this week. Good luck for me.

Activities(that I've thought of) to replace roblox:

1. learn to play a new piece/song

2. Go for a run under sunshine

3. Write something here

4. Youtube (learn sth i like)

5. better handwriting styles

Hi I'm back again after 6 months.

It's really shameful to say that I've returned to playing nonsense video games again and I've always hated myself about doing this. I know I need to start another detox on it as the exam season is around the corner. This will be a 26-day game detox with serious studying and completely no games. I don't have much time left and I fudging need to start studying. 

Habits I want to form during this exam-season detox:

1. Read something new every day
2. Wear on my running shoes whenever I feel the urge to play/waste time on ig
3. Literally no games allowed
4. Listen to music every day
5. Journal every day
6. Study every day

7. Plan my day on todoist every day

Welcome back! We all slip up every now and then, the important thing is that you’ve recognized your slip-up and you’re working to address it. Hopefully this 26-day detox is the beginning of a more long-term abstinence from video games. Be sure to keep us posted in your daily journal. We’ll hold you accountable! 🙂

Braindose, welcome to Game quitters.

Since you now know you don’t want to be a gamer, who do you think you want to be? What are your new identity goals - what do you want your family circle and community to know about you? 

Imagine that your body is figuratively a representation of your troops. The troops are being told that they have to leave the dopamine sucker trap. The troops are now asking the general “Where are we heading to?”

If the troops won’t given a clear practical order, they will remain in the dopamine sucker trap.
