NEW VIDEO: I Quit MMOs and THIS Happened



Recommended Posts

Hello, I have been playing video games for about 10 years(I am 17), my problem really began 6 years ago when my parents decided to move to a different country. I had a lot of stress related to the move and also other family matters I don't want to touch on. Adjusting was hard for me and I took gaming as an escape, as soon as I got home from school i would game for about 8 hours straight, this went on for almost 5 years causing me back pains and the worsening of my eyesight.

My main game was League of Legends and its business model was my bain, I became aware I had a problem when I was ready to pay someone to rank up for me in the ranked mode and checked how much money I wasted on visuals. I had spent about 1000 euro on games, peripherals and ingame content while not making any money myself over 6 years. I realised playing video games the entire day won't get me anywhere and decided to put and end to it. So far I have managed to limit myself to 2 to 3 hours of gaming a day and Im happy with this at the moment. In my free time I started to study history

Welcome to the community. I wish I already took this decision at your age (I'm 22 years old) because it's the best decision I've ever made (along with NoFap). 

I was also using gaming as an escape when my parents got divorced when I was 14 years old. When people asked me how I felt about it I just put on a mask and told them: "Great - now I'll get two presents". Here I am, 8 years later and still haven't got my two presents.
