WhatAboutToday? 71 Posted December 4, 2019 Share Posted December 4, 2019 Hi guys! Making a quick introduction, my name is WhatAboutToday?, I'm a 26 years old male and I've been addicted to games for the most part of my life. It is pretty strange to write that I'm addicted... that is something that I've never said before (and never said it out loud, I just wrote it!) but it's time to really face the problem. Exactly 166 days ago (writing this in 4th of december of 2019), I decided to quit gaming and porn/masturbation for good. It's pretty curious remembering the exact day that it happened, mainly because I can't recall a "trigger" that made me take the decision at the time. But in the end, for me, it makes perfect sense, because my gaming habits were always something that made me feel ashamed. It has been a long time since the last time I felt like myself, and I don't feel like I'm living the life I wanted/was supposed to. So, at that day, a key switched in my brain, I took the decision, and I don't regret it at all. After that, for sure my life got better, but I'm aiming higher right now. The process of quitting wasn't really planned and I don't feel like I replaced the bad habits with only good ones. Starting the journal is a way to keep myself on track, receive suggestions and exchange experiences. Right now, I'm 166 days gaming free. After about 120 days, I relapsed on PMO in a stressful moment, but I'm back on track again. I'm gonna try to be journaling everyday, so feel free to join me on this journey to a better me. I gotta give some structure to this diary so that it becomes easier to make the daily posts, and I'm gonna begin in the first entry (today before I sleep, probably). In a better format it's gonna be better to describe the objectives that I have and the approach I'm gonna take to achieve them. I'm excited to start, the better me is around the corner, let's go! 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
