Keeping myself accountable starting here: 

(2018-10-12) Day 1: began reading Respawn and starting this journal. super hyped and motivated. Deleted all Steam games and uninstalled Steam.   

(2018-10-13) Day 2: Went to see Venom. Will have Tom Hardy's children. made post to sell PS4 and games on Kijiji. Also finished audio book on the car ride home. Did not relapse. 

(2018-10-14) Day 3: made arrangement to give away my PS4. did not relapse. 

(2018-10-15) Day 4: Worked overtime. Did not relapse. 

(2018-10-16) Day 5: Did I mention I'm doing Respawn as well as NoFap? shit's really hard yo. Did not relapse on either. 

(2018-10-17) Day 6: Day off work. Did not plan activities so I ended up touching myself out of boredom. Did not relapse on video games though. (note to self: plan activities ahead of days off)

Thanks Fawn_xoxo! I am currently listening to Atomic Habits on Audible and it's been great with structuring habits. I am committed to writing here daily. 

(19-03-09) Day 1: feels great re-booting the process. Leaving for work after penning this journal entry and will not be back until tomorrow. No chance of relapse today.  

(19-03-10) Day 2: worked Day shift. Finally finished moving all furniture to the new place. Feels great. Did not relapse. 

(19-03-11) Day 3: Worked day shift. Came close to reinstalling games on Steam but somehow creeping my ex on Facebook and finding out that she's happy and with someone else leaves me in absolutely no mood for gaming. Did not relapse. 

(19-03-12) Day 4: Day off. found out that my move actually made my auto insurance go up; thanks Alberta. Went to see Captain Marvel and had Sushi for lunch. Also went to a completely random coffee meetup with complete strangers. Was an alright day overall. Did not relapse.   

(19-03-13) Day 5: Day off. Ate like shit the whole day. Realized that I need better picture and profile for Match.com. Did not relapse. 

(19-03-14) Day 6: Day off. Went into work for a department potluck. Did not relapse. 

(19-03-15) Day 7: AAAAAAAAND that's a week clean! Prove to myself that I can survive without video games!
