At first it was just fun. Then it was fun with problems. Now it's just problems.

The escapism isn't working like it used to. I know I want more than this.

Sometimes I see myself from a different perspective: hunched over in my parents garage, staring into a screen throughout all hours of the night.

How did I let myself get to this point.. a 22 year old man-child. No job, no experience, no car, no friends, no relationship ...

Games have no place in my life anymore. It's about time I moved on. 

I'll do anything to feel like I'm alive again.

One of the best decisions you will ever make - commit to the detox and you will do well!

For your reference to help along the way here is ..
A welcoming statement :230_hatched_chick:
In preparation for a 90 day detox and beyond ..
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 ..
Check it out ✌️ I won't respond in forum to this topic but you are welcome to message me ..
Find some hobbies to replace the time gained ..

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

Do consider checking out the Respawn program offered here as well ..
For what little cost think about that return on investment! ..

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 ..
You might not identify as an addict and that is fine ..
If you are here for any reason to quit video games that is still a benefit to you

Give this your best and I am sure you will do well :93_punch:
