Day # 1

I have my 6th sem exams in 9 days and I didn't study anything and I  just wanted to play dota 24/7 

I realized how much i have changed after i discovered online gaming and how little i care about things and how i stopped socializing , so i decided to change and uninstalled my games and i will start going running from tomorrow.

PS: I have never written anything outside exams and i suck at it .

Welcome to the community, and congrats on taking your first steps!

I know things might feel awful to begin with, but I guarantee if you work every day to improve just a tiny amount, you'll see results in no time at all.

Also, if it's any consolation, my first post on this site 4.5 years ago was terrible. Now, I get paid to write anywhere from my laptop.

It's all part of the journey.

Oh, and good luck with your exams! You've got this.

It's 2:55 pm right now and I have had no urge to play games but I still got no interest in doing anything at all

I just finished Got S08 E01, E02, and E03, now I will try to study

I HOPE THAT I CAN DO IT.

Edit:

It's 7:27 pm and I finally started to study for exams

Day # 3

Today i had a strange start, first I had a dream about gaming that resulted in me waking up like i was playing a game and i can't quite remember which game i was playing and then i "almost" gave in to it but i settled for a couple of YT videos.

I hope it's not like last time when i stopped playing for months and then got back in it 10x more, i stopped studying(not like i use to do a lot but enough to not go below average marks)and somehow lost my social skills and confidence to talk in public, before stopping for the first time i use to talk quite a lot and said whatever was in my mind but after restarting gaming the only place i can talk like that was behind a screen on my mic and tbh i feel confident about myself when playing games but in real life i felt like shit 

i don't know how to explain it just i want it to be over with all the gaming, i want to change but i cant no matter how much i want, i just cant.

 

Update: 

7:09 pm

I am studying now and i can maintain my flow for short durations , i study for 10 min in which i cover a topic or two and take a break for 10, i have been doing it whole day so the total time sums up but still i find myself thinking about games and wanting to play even when doing something else. All i want is not give in and i think i can.

It's a long, long process. But that's the beauty of it, right? 😁

Took me 4 years of constant battling to finally become comfortable, and I STILL get really bad cravings to play. 

Things will get worse before they get better, but once they do, they get MUCH better. 

Keep it up, you're doing great!

Day #4

Today i went for a jog in the morning and it was refreshing and kind of reminded me how unfit i am now, after coming back i was on reddit and i read a post about a guy having no social life because of gaming and i could very much relate to it because both of us started gaming from an early age and didn't do the same things while doing the same things and it made me realize what i have lost or more accurately never had and that made me want to leave gaming behind me more. 

 

I just noticed that i use "I" a lot anyone got a suggestion to fix it?

If you wanna quit games, then it really helps if you shut every connection to them. Don't watch streams, don't read news, just remove everything you can.

Day #6

I feel better than Day#0 when i started and i experienced no urge to play games today after i blocked all game related content from Youtube, Twitter, Instagram and google news feed,

still, i was feeling kind of down from all of this boredom that i experience in free time but it got better later in the afternoon when i got a match (It was a good feeling TBH)

its was like i am ready to socialise again and i am confident that i can.

Day #9

My Advertisement exams went great but after coming back from college, i cannot think about anything except gaming, to just play 1 game and then i will delete it knowing full well if i even install then i won't stop, i am trying to keep my mind off it by going on walks whenever i want to play but still i get hours of free time and i got nothing to do .

Day#20-

Nowadays i have  8-10 hours of free time and it got boring, so I started playing Euro Truck Simulator 2 and i don't overdo it because it is not the type of game I use to play and it gets boring after 60-80 minutes.

be careful though, i tried that with GTA V cause i found it boring fast, but it quickly turned from GTA to another game and another and another and then i was back to gaming 15 hours a day. 😞  I know it can be different from person to person, but for me it was all or nothing, there seemed to be no middle ground.
