Day 1: 

What i've learned today on my first 90 day detox day after uninstalling all my computer games and hiding my console that i'm still not doing something because instead of gaming i was just watching youtube the whole day! Well i have failed this day but i won't tomorrow ! Today i've learned from my failure and it won't happen again! Tomorrow will be a better day! i'm now laying in bed planning for tomorrow 

_______________

Day2:

My day is passed without even using the net (i just did now to write this) , i went outside for 3 hours and found joined a gym when i came back i felt so tired and didn't want to go back for training in 2 hours i felt so lazy and i was saying maybe i did a bad idea leaving gaming because i got bored and wasn't motivated to go outside (it was a hot day) but then i just went for it! i went to the gym even if i didn't want to , i said to myself i'll just do it i have to stop thinking about gaming and using the net , hopefully i found an old friend , we had a really great time we also hang out and he called his friends to join i really had a good time better than all i did in gaming wich gave me hope again i learned today that i did the right idea in the first place and thanks to you guys :D  , i'm very happy about what happend today :D and i'm so excited to wake up tomorrow for another day going outside with my old friend then going to beach :D and have some fun

I can totaly relate to the feeling of gifts and not wanting to sell them... I too am emotionaly attached to my hard and software because I "gifted" that to myself to make me feel better.

Try to look at it from this perspective. Whoever gifted you these presents wanted you to be happy and have a good time. You realised that these gifts are just not giving you that good time anymore but instead are actually hindering you in getting a fullfilled life. By selling them and trying to improve your life you are honoring and respecting the good spirit and idea in wich they were given to you. You are not giving them away but just transforming then.

 

PS: your english is fine dont worry about that!!! :) And now you have a lot more time to improve it incase you feel like it

Hey Fady! Welcome to the community, it's awesome to have you here with us. You'll find a lot of support here.

Selling your gaming stuff can help for sure! Then you can use that money to buy something for a new hobby like a guitar for example. 

Thanks for your time! Well i'm fun of music and my favorite instrument is piano ,  thank you for the idea i'm about to buy one! And if i have enough money left i would travel with them ( i always wanted to travel and discover) have any advice on where to go? A good place to be relaxed and think about myself more

Hey Fady,

Welcome to the community. I think your english is ok, besides your punctuation( it helps if you set a point(.) if you finish a sentence which will make it much easier to read). But this is just a suggestion, it is readable anyway. Awesome that you started to change your life. It helped me alot to quit gamings and I am sure it will help your health and overall lifequality a lot. It seems like your first points should be to get a excercise schedule(maybe try to meet regulary with that friend for the gym?). Excercising regulary helps a lot with sleeping issues. A good idea is also to start a morning routine for a good start in the day. Basically you just do the same few little things everyday to prepare yourself for an sucessful day. I.e. you wake up at the same time every morning and stand up without snoozing. Then you do your bed some stretching and read 10 pages ofa good book(i.e. "The power of habbit"). Then breakfast shower and you are ready to go.

I think if you get managed to get this implemented in your life it will help you a lot. Also check out the helpful Videos at the gamequitters YouTube channels. Cam makes a Video every week and there is a lot of valuable Information of how to start this journey.

Most important Thing si to post here daily even if it isn't too reflective or anything. This will help you to Keep your mind on it and opens the possibility for the community ot help you with some tips and their experiences.

Good luck. I'll check your jounrla form tiem to time.

I'll start adding (.) thank you for the advice :D .

Today i slept for 6 hours wich made me happy. I also bought a relaxing light one of my old friends friend told me that will help me sleep faster , normally it take me to 2 hours to fall asleep but this time it just took me ~45min :D.

I already passed my morning so i'll start doing my morning routine tomorrow ! thank you so much for reading and helping me out :D !!
