gui788 26 Posted December 23, 2018 Share Posted December 23, 2018 (edited) Hello, My name is Guillaume and I am from Montreal. I’m 30 years old and I have been playing games since 13. First of all, French is my main language, so feel free to help me write better and correct me with any syntax, errors, words etc. Today, I have deleted all my games and throw my computer in the basement for the first time in my life. There's some period where I quit gaming for a moment but then comeback, so it's a perpetual negative circle. From my perspective, I lost many opportunities of finding friends, hobbies, passion and learning new things from the real life, I think it would have helped me to know myself better. I have no friends, I’m unemployed and I didn't experience much in life. Gaming made me escape the struggle of life when I was younger and It still goes on after all these years. But it’s okay, I always try to stay positive about the good things I do. Over the years, I’ve trained a lot, I’m proud of my body, I meditate and I love to read self-help books. I feel good with my “inner self” but I struggle in the real life. I feel I didn’t find where I belong to and I want to find my mission in this life. Gaming didn’t help me reach my goals and my dreams, didn’t help me get things done, taking responsibilities and most important take actions for what I want. But everything will change from today. Feel free to share your stories, asking me questions, I love to help. Yesterday, was day one. I had the motivation, it was easy. I know it’s a positive change, I know I might struggle in a couple of weeks when motivation will slow down and brains will want to play, but I’m ready. My goal for now -Having healthy habits and a strong morning routine - I want a good sleeping schedule - Meditation and gym in the morning - Start cooking healthy food Mid/Long term. -Having a job that I love -Help people -Starting a company to help people ( Maybe a resource for kids and parents about gaming addiction where i live) -Travel - Having friends in my life and socialize.
