A new try 2021-02-12, one day at a time


Recommended Posts

 

 

I got work to do, fun work, still im stuck playing Bloons TD on my computer, what am i doing srs
time to uninstall again

uninstalling for the 4th time.... healthy? i think not.

Talk about messing things up for myself, gaming and getting a headache, not even (that) fun.... destructive tendencies


Instead i could do something productive, gym, socialize, work, study flight license, all these things I value, but no, caught by a game that is about monkeys destroying baloons. 30 y.o. man, like dafuq. This is far past due. 

Uninstalled now, time to relax a bit, buy energy drink, and then go on with todays task-list

Hey, 

I know you played a bit with your brother, but if this ever comes up again in the future, try telling him that you are taking a break from video games, and explain why. If he gets defensive or questions why you would do such a thing, what I would do in your situation is tell him that I want to do other activities (like painting, or writing or coding) and gaming was getting in the way of that (say it nicer than that obviously).

Keep on praying, God will have your back the whole way. 
 

Best

Day 6

Thanks for your reply Jason. So far I haven't played with him (yet). I know even "friendly playing" easily turns into compulsion and isolation for me. I will try to stay away.

 

New day new posibilities. I will try to stay present and stay off games, experience this day ❤️

Day 9

 

Still staying clean, one day at a time. I will work a bit and bond with gf today. 

A few weeks ago i saw my gf crying because of me playing too much. I quit that day but relapsed later. not even her tears helped me stay clean. i want to stay clean.

Day 12

 

New day staying clean ❤️

 

In the morning I always watch new and read news. Usually it is a fun way to start the morning, together with some coffee and breakfast.

However, sometimes the news make me upset af. My mind starts racing and i think angry thoughts. Especially if the news are about increasing taxes XD this happened today, and I lose much of my ability to concentrate on work when im upset. I need to be calm to work effectively.

Maybe it would be better for me to just stop watching news. Most of the times i enjoy it but sometimes, like today, it F me up.

Day 15

Still not playing games, thankfully.

I try to reply to posts on reddit everyday. Not giving too much advice, just thanking them for sharing and asking questions. Problem with reddit is that we dont know what happens to the people who decide to quit. Do they relapse? I want to stay in touch. 

 

Wish u a great day ❤️

Yes, that's why I honestly don't go to reddit's gamequitters- too unreliable of a platform. And honestly reddit is incredibly gaming-centered, so just being on reddit draws me into games more, so I tend to avoid it lol.
