Hey man! Nice job you're doing here! Making this pie charts each day keeps you HELL YEA accountable! Keep it up whenever you have worse day and moments of doubts! Ah, and also, YOU DON'T NEED TO BE PERFECT. FUCK MOTIVATION! DISCIPLINE IS MUCH MORE IMPORTANT!!! I'm curious what kind of application are you using for this awesome pie charts? I'm using Time Meter and it doesn't make anything like that You live in South Korea, you should be grateful for that. There are many other things you can be grateful for. How about making a short gratitude list each day? Even 3 things a day are enough to feel more fulfillment in your life
Ah, and also thank you for your activity in my own journal! You keep Mad Pharmacist even more ON FIRE during though examination time! Just making me more indestructible! Greetings, Mad Pharmacist
Cameron Adair Dare you to take a challenge! (pun intended ) That's a spirit! I have to add my "3 grosze" (I don't know if there's an idiom like "3 pennies" when you want to add something ): Just try to write on a daily basis EVEN WITH ONE SENTENCE. I tries it out for about a month when I was really busy and it helped me A LOT at being consistent. Some of the examples I've written down: TIRED AND EXHAUSTED!NEED MORE TIME TO LEARN!BEING OUTSIDE IS FANTASTIC!I'M A REAL WARRIOR OF MODERN TIMES!AHAHAHAH YOU HAVE NO CHANCE WITH ME, PANIC!It's hard to find an excuse for writing ONE SENTENCE A DAY, so find an opportunity. Good luck with this hint! Greetings, Mad Pharmacist
Hello there Dylan Rice! I'm just glad you're doing so well! You see, it gets much easier and easier when you're more in the detox. What are your plans after finishing it? Are you going to continue thrive in your life without video games are do you want to give it a try? I'm just wondering Anyways, I know it's caused by values differences, but whenever you earn 100$, remember that this kind of many is A LOT in Poland. I mean, it might be like 40-hours week of work after finishing college. So, that's something you should be grateful for What style of dance are you training? I'm curious about that. Greetings, Mad Pharmacist
Hey, hey, hey, don't give up homie! You don't want to feel the pain of hitting the bottom again, do you? I don't want to and here's why I'm reading your journal and many others. This is why I'm spending a lot of time outside. This is why I'm focused on support. If you were a gamer, that means YOU'RE NOT LAZY! It's not only my opinion, just look @Cam Adair made a special video for you: So, he put an effort to make a video for you, and you want to give up on that and do nothing! Hell no! I dare you do translate this video above into your native tongue. This will give you at least SOMETHING to do. This is serious, you know, a quest (I mean, not @Quest, but quest, a mission) from Mad Pharmacist. Once you achieve it you can continue this path. I have some more tasks for you, but start with this, man! Keep it up and never lose hope! Greetings, Mad Pharmacist
Nice table! It's gives you a lot of information about yourself! Good place to be more aware About fruit: Remember that some fruit are not commonly known as fruit e.g. tomato is a fruit (a berry, specifically ) and some of them are difficult to obtain like durian. So for me it looks like one of the biggest challenge in the entire community! You can place here some photos of your backyard so you'll feel more motivated to take an action and create it! Greetings, Mad Pharmacist
Heyyy Quest! I read your entry and I have to say, that you're still on the good road! I mean, 1 hour spent on procrastination sometimes happens to everyone. Don't blame yourself for that and just move forward. You said that Discord community keeps you accountable. One of the best way I know to keep yourself accountable is to have an accountability partner. It's nice you have apps to prevent you from overusing Internet. That's important in the beggining. Also I really like Mazury! You're probably from mountainous part of Poland if you go there like Bieszczady. Am I right?
As @puckspock said, some days are just worse than others. You're just a human not a robot so you have right to have worse days. Remember about that, you can't be happy 100% of the time it's physiologically impossible! Greetings, Mad Pharmacist
I'm solemnly swear that I'm up to good Day #1831 Hell yea, today's physiology was a tough one. However, I did my best and I'm just proud of myself. So, today I'm gonna participate in community activity more, although I still need some time to face next exam on Monday! Mischief managed.
I'm solemnly swear that I'm up to good Day #1830 Last day until next exam! I'm on fire! Ahahahaha Nobody can stop me now, I did too much effort through THE ENTIRE YEAR, to pass this exam, so there is no way to give on the last day. So, as I said hundreds of times before: Let's fuck'em up! Ah, and what's interesting, although I am studying a lot, I still have time to progress in Toastmasters. That's a spirit! Mischief managed.
Hey, hey, hey my SuperSaiyan! The relapse is important thing. It happens, end this is the best time to make positive changes The trick with friend is a good. I suggest you to tell him that it's just for studying/work purposes. This way you'll have to embarrass yourself if you will want to get the password back! I recommend Rescue Time app. It's just awesome for me! It shows how much time you spend on specific website/program each day and show your productivity and distractive time. I installed it a month ago and I didn't even realise before how much time I wasted on YT over a month! I have even better idea for blocking sites. Using computer at home should be only for things that are necessary. Planned at least day ahead. And things that you have to do at home. For me it's printing, accounting, accountability calls and this forum. The rest I can do outside the house like in coffee shop, library reading room or even outside Btw. I'm interested into what you said once, I mean that you're psychologist. However you still study, right? Can you expand more about it? If you want of course Greetings, Mad Pharmacist
Hello Aleks! To be honest, in the beggining of the detox I believe that "procrastinating on journaling" is 100x better than procrastinating on YT/Netflix/Streams/Discord/Steam etc. Remember that each time you post an entry here, you bring a value. A REAL VALUE to other people with similar problem. That's the difference between these 2 types of procrastination. I really like the complimenting goal. Tell me please are you going to compliment people you know or a complete strangers? And obviously what kind of compliments do you give? Greetings, Mad Pharmacist
Hello there, OnlySoul! I see that there is a long journey ahead! You've just got +1 to Mad Pharmacists who will follow your journey! hahaahahhhah Also it looks like you're inspiring with my font in signature! Good job! Jokes aside, I see that you're getting "priest panic attacks". Can you please tell me how strong they are and what emotions do you feel during that time? This is important, because I experienced panic attacks too and you have to discover your enemy to combat him. I mean, not literally, in most cases the best way is to wait until it wear off or just do anything else (NOT GAMING! ) What do you think? The thing you're doing on a journal is called affirmation. If you struggle with low self-esteem, or the better word is not so optimal Then I recommend you to write down some sentences that gives a real value about you, shows how valuable you are and then repeat them twice a day aloud in front of mirror. I'll give you some examples: I'm very confident, calm and I have great sense of humourEach day I become a better personI can achieve whatever I want!I'm trustworthy personI create a value while I'm talking with other peopleI'm the bossI'm the leaderI have great potentialI'm special personI love everything in myself This one are focused on confidence, because this is important to feel more confident after quit gaming. It helps a lot with social interactions! Try this one out and tell me how it works. Greetings, Mad Pharmacist
I'm solemnly swear that I'm up to good Day #1827 I was so absorbed by exams, that I forgotten to write here! 3 left to pass! So far I passed 3 another exams so I did half of my work! Can't wait until I finish it and FINALLY get some rest from everything! Mischief managed.
