Day 10

Today's Progress

  • Happily still here going strong.
  • I've made great personal progress, but I can still be doing better. I still have basic things to work on.
  • I don't have any urges to game as i've found many other better and more exciting things to do.

Good job on getting back to double digit days.  What are you doing instead of gaming?

Day 15

Today's Progress

  • @BooksandTrees, I've just been learning about a range of different stuff, I don't tend to stay with just one topic.
  • Been so busy learning, I don't have time to update the journal daily. I'm just very involved in learning
  • I think i've been doing really well. No cravings at all anymore and I stopped counting the days (Just come back here to see again lol).

Also got my birthday coming up soon :)

Day 51

Just an update that i'm still going strong on StopGaming.

Recently i've been having cravings for the first time. This streak has been amazing for me so far, i've changed my life in different ways. Having specific goals and a schedule has been incredible. I'm able to do what I want to do, be able to track my progress and manage that however I want. I'm having much more fun doing regular things than gaming. Gaming to me has a very lonely vibe. Like you want to shut yourself out from the world and you don't want anything to do with it. I'm more in control of my life now. I have more self discipline to do what I want to do and i'm more aware of life in general.

I know this will be the streak that gets me over 90. I'm only craving games as a way to procrastinate. It's better that I don't game, because it helps build that self discipline. When I think about relapsing, I think about all the real progress I created over the last 50 days. It's such a solid gameplan. Gaming appeals to me only because its easy and its setup already, you just put the work in. When you do the same to activities in your life, it makes it 100x better. It's worth the extra few steps.

I'm also on NoFap at around the same streak.

Nice job.  I'm glad to hear you're dealing with cravings and sticking to a schedule.  Keep following your dreams.  The happiness of accomplishing your dreams, but also living a life with purpose and intention will bring you a happiness and fulfillment that gaming and porn will never bring to our hearts.  I found that I kept wanting to watch more and more porn to feel accomplished and fulfilled.  But recently I started following my dreams in life and devoting myself to myself and the journey towards my goals.  Through this I have found peace and purpose.  I have also found that I wake up each morning with life, not a dreary disdain for the day ahead.  I hope you stay strong and stay on the journey.
