Gonna try again

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys!

My name is Andrew and I'm a university student who managed to slip back into some nasty habits. This comes after an incredibly successful semester, which saw me achieve the highest marks I have yet to earn. This is the primary reason I'm going to start journaling here. I thought I had finally managed to get on track, but evidently, I haven't. I'm scared that I've suddenly started to game, binge Netflix, and binge porn in quantities I haven't managed to reach in years. A number of things have contributed to this relapse, some of which include: a nasty break up, family tragedy, and the general laziness associated with the summer. Regardless of the root cause, nobody can restore my discipline other than myself, so I intend to attack these addictions with all I got. 

 

So these are the activities I intend to quit forever: 

Gaming

Masturbating to Porn

Watching Tv

 

I'm quite serious about this. None of these activities have contributed positively to my life, and I believe there is a lot I can gain from quitting.

 

I will keep on track by journaling here daily, forcing myself out of the house for most of the day, every day, and observing a strict regiment of replacement activities.

 

Through these mechanisms, I hope I can finally close this chapter in my life and become the man I was meant to be.

A welcoming statement :230_hatched_chick:
First move the consoles & games out of sight so it stays out of mind ..
This includes uninstalling them from the computer & devices! ..
Once it is done you can move on from there & a lot easier I might add.
After that you need to teach yourself how else to spend that free time!
Make sure you are eating healthy, getting daily exercise, & proper sleep ..
Then for starters find some hobbies to replace the time gained ..

Start some kind of journal with pen & paper, online here, or both! ..

Cross-examine other areas in your life you find consuming your time ..
Excessive consumption is what leads to the time crippling addictions ..
Replace such excessive consumerism by using your free time to create.
Our one life, the time that we have is meant for so much more than feeding addictions.
Thank you for your interest to quit video games ..
Perhaps such bold action will inspire others to great deeds as well =)
