Moving on, just don't get enjoyment anymore

Recommended Posts

Most of the people here want to quit video games due to an out of control addiction getting in the way of the rest of their lives. I feel I'm a little different. While I was extremely addicted when I was younger, my interest has waned recently, and honestly, I don't find video games fun anymore. I usually finish with feelings of frustration instead. I don't see them as too much of a waste of time when kept in check, but playing them just isn't enjoyable anymore. But I keep coming back. I feel as if this time I'll enjoy myself and all the stupid shit that gets in the way of my enjoyment will be gone.

But it never is, not matter what game I play, I'm either disinterested, or something or another makes me bored or frustrated. I just want to break my reliance on games for entertainment and move on, since it's causing me more harm than good.

While my reasoning may be slightly different to a lot of people, I believe our goals remain the same. I want one thing, and that's to be free of gaming so I can enjoy my life more.

Wish me luck, ehe.

Congratulations on your decision to quit gaming you certainly do not have to identify as an addict to reap the benefits. With enough time and discipline you will no longer have to rely on a game for entertainment ever and that is time that you get to decide what to do - glad you found us  @LucyInTheSky

For your reference to help along the way here is ..

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.

Getting rid of the games for good enabled me to finish the detox strong, consider that.
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 ..
NUTRITION - big minefield of controversy I personally am behind a plant-based diet ..
This upcoming documentary backed by Producers Arnold Schwarzenegger & Jackie Chan ..

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 😃
