Day 4 (Sunday)

Went to visit my Dad. We went for a hike with a friend of his. It was nice relaxing hike and the weather was sunny and cool. After that I went to my brothers place to change my car tires for winter. After I finished with the tires I chatted with my brother and his wife for a couple of hours. 

The weather turned crappy as I headed home. It got wet and cold. I spent the rest of the evening watching the Cowboy Bebop series on Netflix before crashing. 

Day 5 (Today)

Watched a few Udemy class videos, did some yoga and meditated in the morning. Had a simple breakfast of muesli and tea. Rolled my winter tires into the basement of my building to put them in my storage space. Organized my car after that. 

Later, some repair guys came by to finish fixing the radiator. Not sure how good a job they did though. I've had the thermostat cranked all the way up and I haven't felt anything out of the radiator. Fortunately my unit is still pretty warm at the moment. 

Just finished an hour of a zoom breathwork class. Probably going to do some reading and watch a movie before I head to bed.

 

Have a great night everybody!

  • 1 month later...

Well here I am again with my tail between my legs. Two days ago I quit gaming after falling back in the deep end. I let my loneliness convince me that gaming with my online friends would be a good idea. Basically, I went hardcore for about a month and a half. I mean 8 - 12 hours a day. Right back to where I was when I quit originally. Ironically, while I decided to game again to socialize with friends I found myself mostly gaming alone.

I'm not ashamed of myself this time. I recognize how being so isolated made falling back into gaming so easy. Also, the only person around to keep me accountable is me. I'm not going to be so easy on myself this time. 

It's so obvious how gaming holds me back. Just two days into quitting and I've been so much more productive. 

Consider me back. This is day 2 of no gaming.

Thanks @WhoCaresand @Nico Indigo

I really appreciate the support.

Well, its DAY 4 and I'm not going to pretend that I'm not bored out of my mind, because I am. No big deal. I'm going to make some chicken soup in the afternoon, do some yoga, meditate and then either read something or play around with one of my synthesizers. I will keep myself busy even if I don't want to. 

Hope everybody is doing good!

Day 6

Still off the vids. I was helping my buddy do some work on a store he's opening but I tweaked my back a little bit. Taking it easy for the rest of the night to make sure it doesn't get any worse. It was nice to get out and see people, even if I was working. 

I've been playing around with my synthesizers more these days and I'm starting to get into them. 

My brain is still quite foggy but I know in a few more days that will clear up. 

Take care all!

Day 10

I haven't gamed in 10 days. I'm happy to report that my mind has settled some and I'm finding it easier to keep my mind busy. I informed my brother today that he'd be receiving my XBox series S now that I'm done with it. Pretty soon I'll try to find a buyer for my Nintendo Switch as well. More then happy to have them out of here. 

Going back to work tomorrow after a two month break. Looking forward to it. 

Take care gang!

Day 14

It's certainly been easier to not game now that I'm back at work. I'm back to a point where I'm not thinking about gaming nearly as much. I have to remind myself to not be overconfident. Last time I quit I was positive that I was done for good. Turns out that wasn't the case. All it took was a moment of weakness and bam...back to gaming. 

I've been keeping myself busy with TV, meditation, and learning how to use my synthesizers. However, gaming creeps into my mind every now and then. 

I hope everybody is staying off the pixels! I wish you all the best!
