NEW VIDEO: The EASIEST Way to Stop Gaming

Anime detox


Recommended Posts

Day 0 

So it been awhile since I have been here, and thought about doing this later but the later you wait the worse it gets.

 First an update is over the last couple learns I joined some communities and learned unity, blender classes I took during the 2020 lockdowns. I’m apart

of Discord with few Christian communities, while yes I do not recommend this, I did learn a few things, that I’m not game developer all or coding or programming even though I understand it a little bit. I did enjoy set desgin in unity meaning what scene could like for movie set or something like that. 

So I need to stick to what I’m passionate about and that building YouTube with the animation software I have and orginal stories, I even tried out for a few voice acting a couple of times. 

I have experimented with off and on gaming while that’s not best idea I have managed to limit to 45min 1 per week and found games is not what I enjoy but interactive stories. 

So if you are gaming addicted you may have seen yourself drawn to anime or gameplay videos on YouTue, (while do like vr and would love to make own app one day), things I do not recommend on your fasting journey is anime and gaming even visual novels, yes I made the same mistake not thinking they were games so it not recommended.

I have even thought about quote educational games just so I can learn Japanese better since it does not have the best hiragana learning tools. But when I thought about this there was angel wars episode that said if your worthy of it you let go. 

So that why I have decided to take this fast because what I have discovered is anime is far worse addiction that I could have imagined and I do not even watch anime mostly rap battles and stuff online and even mlp show has anime tendencies as well anime adult sites to. 

And every time I think of returning it makes me lazy, unproductive etc. 

So the thing I can do is to fast these things which means starting right now I’m making so new rules to myself.


1.Christian content only anything I own but no cartoons or anime for the time being.

2.Me being Christian I will still read the Bible and have Christian music going 

3.Christian content only to kind isolated myself but not too much so I can do different things 

4.Learn this Christian trading card game I have.

5.This fast is going for 180 days rather than typical 90 days and the reason for it feels more extreme.

I would like to learn Spanish to at some point so if anyone has some pointers on that that be great. The reason is I go to real life church now and so people only speak Spanish there.

plus I will be going on vacation next week which I will totally disconnect from everything. 

My goals are to focus on thanksgiving this week and packing as well as scripts and recoding for my YouTube.

2.I have an app call nerd fitness journey which I really thought would have triggered my gaming addiction but the opposite has happened where you do see your progress, it does have story but more as back seat and you do different exercises. 

3.I do like geo chasing as good alternatives to video games and do have Duolingo as Spanish learning app.

I that about it. I have noticed this twice the moment I do not have anime everything moves forward and the moment I bring it back it feels like procrastinated or become so lazy and do anything that I want to and compare myself to others.

so now that it.

Day 1-8


So I have started the new year with a new anime detox and so far so good, I have not watched any anime stuff like amvs, pmv, mlp, or game of the sort, 

Right now I have been getting into the Word of the Lord by reading historical plan and find his his will first before I pursue anything else. 

Second I have been voice acting for few roles in projects as well as something to give me extra to do, I m in one but am auditioning for others and kind hard trying to find ones that are original, no anime. But I do try and when I find intersting project I audition for it. Whether this will take off or not is beyond me but I m happy to do it.

My Goal for the Month of January is to get my Youtube Channel Animated Christians in order and get nice batch of videos done for the next 3 months then I don't have to worry about it too much,

Second I've been eating healthier and walking outside as well, plus I have standing desk so I type this I'm actually standing. 

I think that it for now

So I have not written here in awhile so I wanted share few things I have learned and few things I will be doing.

first of all for all of you ex-gamers, have you found yourself replacing gaming with anime and porn? 

   The reason I say this is because anime is directly linked to gaming because wasn’t an anime that got you into gaming wether that be Mario, Zelda, Pokémon, yugioh. I grew up in the 90s which makes me a 90s child and noticed how anime makes you want to play games. 

This why I think they’re directly linked to gaming and there something called fan service which soft porn think bikini beach scenes and hot springs episodes in anime where girls do not have clothes but is somehow censored. that why I think they are directly linked to gaming in porn.

Now i amid I have anime addiction (I know it can be for tv or cartoons too) but this different. Anime creates the same escapism that video games gives you and immerse you like no other cartoon.  Cartoons (American cartoons do not have the same effect as anime influenced cartoons like avatar the last airbender, legend of Korah and others but cartoons like SpongeBob do not have the same effect.) this why I believe anime addiction is real and quite different than what we perceive it yo be. 

Now with that out the way I think the best way for me is to take sabbatical starting in march. Meaning no internet at all expect for few things but no internet research, no YouTube, no soical media.

app expecting is Geo cashing, Christian mediation, bible app and fitness app and that it. 

the reason for the fast is to clear my head and give my body rest and take break from everything then Apirl will slowing back in.

it will give me some fresh air as well, plus books will be allowed (physical books no kindle) and physical dvd Christian dvds will be allowed but beyond that and the apps that what I will be doing. 

I do want to make aware this an addiction that is not talked about a lot and it does it exist in few people.

I think that it, have good day

Replacement is pretty normal. Anime, netflix, youtube, social media… I guess for you its anime. Thats why you should focus on doing what you are supposed to do instead of focusing on what you not want to do(gaming anime). Otherwise its just replacement after replacement, pretty pointless.

Not replacement per se but of course other problematic habits become more reinforced when you exclude the one big thing you used to do. In my case these haven't become a problem so far as they don't have the same strong holding power as gaming. I don't think about them when I don't do them and I also realize that I cannot be productive every hour of the day; there needs to be some downtime with less meaningful activities. Still, they need to be under constant supervision because it can be easy to get lost in them when the energy needed to be productive is not always on top.

Yep anime and gaming were always problems with me and were directly linked together.

Now I have down sort replacement before about a month before for example if I had no gaming, then I have anime and internet, if I did not have internet then I replace it with video games. (This prior to game quitters). If had no anime I would have internet and video games. You get the idea. Though I did one big mistake is when I finished these fasts that I would unlock everything again which is boring at first but then you get back in the same rut. 

So I thought about how I could do this better, and (I have pc I built with my own two hands as well. Something I had wanted to do for very long time). The way I I'm going to fix this is I m not going to unlock everything at once. Once march is up I will add one element back and slowly transition back in. This way I can have balance between screen time and fresh air. 

So in April I will be to trying learn Japanese again and Spanish so that month is no internet either but will be adding learning a new language on PC. Partly because I have the software to do so without buying extra equipment. That and I have VM (Virtual machine) that I can use to have windows 7 on since some maybe no compatible with windows 10. (Yes I can do it with books as well, but I just using what I have). The two software I believe are Instant Spanish and Human Japanese. 

May I will reintroduce internet making scripts for YouTube and few other platforms. That will be it 

Then in June maybe add something else. 

Plus I experiment with few things and one thing is I found that if you do 45min of what your learning and take break then do something else your brain retrains more but if you try to continue that project then you get headache from it. That what I did is got up 6:00am and got started 8:30am and finished 3:00pm then gave myself a reward system like after 3pm would be out to eat, geo cashing, tea or coffee shop, discord, telegram etc.. On Mondays I do no digital detox but I mostly doing this detox to relax and focus on myself. Then on Friday I would unleash this YouTube, and all social media but this the first time to get rid of all 3 for one month and will be looking for new RL church. 

I think that about it for now thank you for reading
