NEW VIDEO: The EASIEST Way to Stop Gaming

20 y/o lady ready to change, here we go


Recommended Posts

Greetings everyone!

I've always been really attracted to MMORPGs and mobile games. I'm pretty sure the final straw for me was when I took out over 50% of my credit line on in-app purchases (we're talking $1,200+)and I outright financed a $2000 laptop behind my parents' backs. My grades are dropping, my weight is rising, and my mood is worse. 

I've been down this road before, and I know too well what it leads to. It's only a matter of time before I spiral back down into more self-destructive, and ultimately suicidal, tendencies.

I know I have to stop this, but I'm pretty spooked. Gaming was my only real source of stress relief. I don't have to socialize, I don't have to work to please anyone, I don't have to think about my responsibilities and  insecurities...why should I burden myself with that, when I could be a rocket-shooting, double-jumping, monster-blasting space ninja/pirate saving the galaxy from devastation?

At least there, even if it was just some made-up story online, I meant something. I was worthwhile. I actually achieved, and got rewarded for achieving.

Of course, my real life would still go down the drain, no matter how many zombies I head-shotted. 

I'm tired of hating myself. Today is the day I put an end to my self sabotage. It's going to be hard: there's so many updates I will miss out on, so many one-time opportunities that will never show up again for months, possibly years. I don't know how I will fill the void. I don't have many friends, and the friends I do have either are too busy or too far away. I'm an only kid, and I don't have any pets. I don't want to stay at home studying all day, but there's not much else for me to do...

Wish me luck, I guess. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
