NEW VIDEO: 22 minute gaming addiction documentary

2nd time quitter, 1st time w/ game quitters


Recommended Posts

Round 3 - Day 4

Today I had work and I had more energy at work than I've had for a few weeks now. The only thing I've changed is the lack of gaming so that's gotta be it. As far as I can tell, each time back committing to the gaming detox is easier. My first time quitting was hella fucking hard. My second time was pretty hard. This time is hard, but at the same time feels not too hard. The times I'm talking about are the ones where I really took a long break (a month or more). Not the times where I stopped for a day or something like that. I feel like the long breaks are really where our minds have the time and space to change. I'm feeling sure about keeping with it to give myself that opportunity to change and grow.

First time I quit video games was almost 6 years ago. I had dropped out of college, been at home for a year and half, and gotten into countless arguments with my parents. I had quit games many times t

Day 7 I’ve made it one whole week! Wow, I actually didn’t realize that until I typed day #7. I was about to be a downer, but I guess life really isn’t too bad then. Today was work, exercise, read

Yo fellow gamequitters, I'm back and plan to be journaling daily again as an accountability tool for myself until I feel I no longer need to. Sometime in the 100s days free, I don't remember what

I feel the same way regarding porn. I know it's different than gaming but I still feel like I've gained so much experience from quitting before that I'm in a better spot now to quit for longer.

Round 3 - Day 5

Talked to an old friend on the phone today for over an hour. The conversation reminded me just how much I’ve changed in the past years. This helped me to feel better about where I’m at now.

I've had a lot of these moments over the past 2 or 3 years and it's good to recognize change. Good job being introspective.

Hello friends, nothing like starting over, again...

Round 4 - Day 2

A quote that resonates with me today:

A Warrior of the Light knows that certain moments repeat themselves.
He often finds himself faced by the same problems and situations, and seeing these difficult situations return, he grows depressed, thinking that he is incapable of making any progress in life.
"I've been through all this before," he says to his heart.
"Yes, you have been through all this before," replies his heart. "But you have never been beyond it."
Then the Warrior realizes that these repeated experiences have but one aim: to teach him what he does not want to learn.

- Warrior of the Light, Paulo Coelho
