This is Where I Fight - This is Where Gaming Dies

Day 65 - Game free!

I’m back home. Work is sending me right back out to a remote locale. Exciting. I will be finishing my detox there. 

Got my laptop back from warranty. Tonight will be a real test, but I have plenty to keep me busy before my flight in the morning.

One day at a time... Have had a few conversations with women that were nice.

Day 70 - I have never made it this far. Wow. So I’ve been writing poetry every other day for the past two weeks. I’m getting perks at work. My ex has no more power over my heart and mind. Making small wins. Sometimes I regress, but overall I’m still getting stronger. 1% changes have ripple effects. Someone reading this needs to go back and catch up on my story for inspiration. If I can then ANYONE can.

Some thanks are in order from folks here that have showed some interest in me in some way. Thank you. @Ikar, @ElectroNugget, @TimetoWalkAway, @Splitstep, @DaBest, @NannerZ, @George Wyatt, @fawn_xoxo, @asquerade, and anyone else that I may have missed. @Cam Adair, when I get to my 90 day mark, I’d like to give another testimony and list some books and habits that have been helping get through this detox.

Hey, 30 years. 

Honestly, I cannot possibly imagine what you're going through right now, but reading your response to everything is incredibly inspiring to me. Many would wilt under that kind of pressure, but you're just pushing through. Kudos to you, good sir. You give me hope. Keep doing what you're doing!

It sounds like you're coming out the other side of that dark tunnel now and can see the light again. Very happy for you! 1% changes absolutely works, keep that mindset! It's been working wonders for me too. Keep it up!

Day 78 - Wow. Killing it. One day at a time...

You can do this. Whoever you are reading this. Get to a place where you put all your gaming stuff completely beyond your reach. Bury it in the backyard. Whatever...

My success has been largely in part to being physically removed from temptation except for my phone.

Worth considering if you are struggling out there.

Hi, I am Lea. Are you writing poetry? Me too. After I read your last few posts, I am happy that you made progress in your goals. I may not be you, but I can feel the pain you went through with your family issues. Keep up with the good work and don't push yourself too hard. 😀

Yes, I am writing poetry again after a 13 year famine. I’ve done about a dozen or so in the past several weeks. 

Thank you for reading my story. I hope something I said helps. Sometimes I get too zealous and then I do push too hard. Thanks for the reminder. 😊

Day 80 - Game Free.

Haven’t talked to the kids in weeks. My ex is not allowing communication with them. My lawyer is helping me. Met a lady that is amazing and we have been talking almost every day this week and have a lot in common. Feeling rough today. 

Keep fighting out there! One day at a time.
