NEW VIDEO: The EASIEST Way to Stop Gaming

New member, first post.


Recommended Posts

This is my first day of detox. I haven't posted on a forum before, will be interesting to see what comes of this. I have quit several times before, but I intend to quit forever this time. I did an estimate of how much time I've spent on virtual entertainment, and it's a significant portion of my life. It is very sad to look back and think of what could have been accomplished during all that time, but that's what I did for fun from the time I was a kid, and now long into being an adult. I know this hobby helped me deal with some very difficult times in life, I had problems with people at school, at work, and with my family. There was a time I could deal with such things and work towards my life goals without having to resort to games, but eventually you can only deal with so much. So, not feeling very good right now, but there is no way around it now, I will be turning 27 this month, and will be starting my life over from scratch. Still need to finish my online courses, and get my career started.

Welcome! 

You can do it.  It's never too late.  Sounds like you used gaming to cope... and you're in the middle of doing positive things for yourself.  It seems like quitting is going to help you focus and make the progress you're truly capable of.    My story is similar... lots of similar issues with people and trials.  I've had some pretty big goals since my mid 20's but always used gaming, and it always got out of hand and held me back from reaching my full potential.  I'm 36 now.  I'm tired of the cycle, and i don't feel so great right now either, but it's going to change.  I know we can do it.
