Also, why is the website giving me a (Rank: Newbie 1/14)  That seems like some gamer shit and this is an antigaming forum.

heh, it's interesting that you associate this with gaming! I've been on many other online forums before and this is a common feature to me, but I see where you are coming from. Perhaps it could be made optional to display... maybeeee @Cam Adair???

.  Plus, this lifestyle is not helping my health at all, I know I'll heal faster if I don't do any of this.  It's just difficult and I'm lonely.  

I hope that you'll get better once the school starts; I felt a similar way too in the months leading up to my 1st year, but once it kicked in- I've been having the (social) time of my life ever since. 

Glad to hear that you are feeling much better than usual though, and that you were able to hit that point so soon after quitting gaming again 🙂 Wish you good health in the coming months!

Hmmm, have you ever seen this video? It has helped me learn to enjoy leisure more and focus less on chasing progress/improvement within myself so much.

Good to hear from you Po, I will check it out.  I really do like that youtuber.

And ya, I've seen the rank around.  I was definitely faded when I wrote that, I don't think it's tooo big of a deal, but it does seem a bit like a gaming similar feature.

  • Average_Guy changed the title to Journey to the West (New 2.5 Month Update)

July 26, 2021

Had a friend text me this morning asking me when I was going to get back on the game with him.  It almost made me laugh because gaming just isn't an option anymore, it's not part of me.  

It feels like I've been able to close the chapter in that book.  A weird coincidence is that I just filled up a journal that I had been writing in since March 2020, right before Covid hit.  So I bought a new journal and started a brand new chapter.  Very powerful (a new chapter for my life).

In one foul swoop, and I don't say this lightly, I believe I have put to rest my gaming and porn addictions.  It started around 10 years ago, and it's been a long and difficult journey.  I'm ecstatic, but the tough part is you rarely get a break in life and now I have new challenges that will be just as hard.  Fighting to stay productive, find my calling, and not letting the parting/girls get the best of me at school.

I don't think I will be back to post very often, but I hope you all overcome your obstacles.  If I have any advice, it's to always keep digging deeper.  Don't mask your emotions and feelings with all the tools we have in this life to numb ourselves, they are there for a reason.  This is something I still battle with today and will probably for the rest of my life.  Also, don't be too hard on yourself!  The problems we all face are common to man, you are doing what you are supposed to doing as a human being, stay strong, be happy!  PEACE!
