It was the best reward, when I met my friends again.

Or when I got my GF.

Having people in your life who you can share things with is the biggest reward for me.

For me (I noticed that after quitting games) people within the internet are not real friends.

Hello dirkj3,

I could be wrong, but to me it sounds like you yet have to explore a wider spectrum of possible activities, in order to find even more engaging hobbies.

Ask yourself: Did you find activities that provide you with enough challenge(or purpose) yet?
I'll also link one of Cams videos here, so we can recall together the 4 big reasons why we feel drawn back to games & bad habits and what to do instead:

Hello 

Sorry for replying late.

I found out that all the little things require a lower dopamine receptor sensitivity that I don't have yet.

I read something that sport can recover dopamine receptors..How is that?

Thank you very much in advance !

For me, it was the other way around. I did certain things like changing my diet, engaging in productive routines, beating procrastination etc. Some stuff has happened almost a year before I even considered to quit gaming. Eventually quitting it was like the tip of the iceberg to become even better. I think, the motivation I gained from my successes from other areas help me to stay away from games. I just think that all of this is a lot more meaningful and gaming is no option any longer. I wasted enough time. This is enough reward for me to engage in other activities.
