Yo, glad to have you back @Marquess!! It's been ages man, feels so good seing some old faces pop up in the forum again . I'm genuinely happy that things are going pretty well for you About the gaming part, you've made the perfect choice by coming back here , we're here to patch you up
Well, I guess the hardest part was saying goodbye to my gamer friends from all arround the world. I remember it was a really heartbreaking moment for me. It took me like 30mins to hit enter just to send a farewell message. They were people that I'd sometimes spend like 6 hours a day playing games with. If only I knew that by quitting games, I'd automaticaly spend less time with them lol
@ @WorkInProgress I guess I'm in the same boat as you are Like about a year ago I was like living on sugar. I would eat a bunch of sweets throughout the day, and I would barely eat any normal food. Every single time, after school I'd go to the shop to buy a pack of chips or any other type of sweet. I was skinny as hell and I had very little appetite. My diet was shit. But that's how it was back in the gaming days. I managed to reduce the amount of sweets I consume by not going to the shop after school and asked my parents not to buy 'em so often. My diet is somewhat better right now, I've gained a bit of weight ( like a few kilos lol ). Although sometimes I still have these days when it gets out of hand, but it's better than it was before.
I'm adding more websites to my mindless browsing list. Since I've noticed a weird thing, when I'm using the PC, I start to browse subconsciously all these websites to find any potential stimulation for my brain. It's like all of the sudden I turn on Skype just to see if someone wrote me or keep checking this forum for any new stuff, even tho I don't need that at the very moment.
Rem's naughty list: Youtube - If there's any video that I need to watch or anything like that, I'll just download it. ( No more than 1 video per two days)FacebookLiveleakDiscord - I'll go a bit soft on this one. I'll allow myself strictly to use discord only once a week (Friday). Because I have a ton of pen pals there ( internet friends) that I'd love to keep in touch with.Vimeo Wikipedia Twitter Gamequitters ( I'll write stuff through my phone/tablet)Any movie websitesInstagram
Congratulations on day 9!! I think freezing up when talking to others is a completely normal thing. It happens to all of us, so you shouldn't think about it to much. No one's perfect. To be honest, people probably don't care that much wether you freeze up while talking or do some other weird thing. They might think about it in the momment, but at the end of the day they'll probably have more important things to think about
Good job on setting up the foundation to quit video games!! It will help you a lot in the long run! Also, if I was you, I would try to build a new schedule as fast as possible. Since it makes being organised like 80% percent easier
Failed my mock driving test today!! FUCK , fuckity fuck FUCK!!! I got super confused when I had to go through this traffic circle (not sure how you call it) that I forgot to let this kid pass the street. Well, I guess I should blame my lack of focus and paying attention to the stupid ass road signs. On the other hand I'm quite proud of myself, I did a pretty good job while driving ( besides those stupid mistakes) it wasn't so hard/confusing as I thought it would be. I was calm most of the time. But god damn, I feel pissed cuz probably I woulda passed this mock test. Now the next time I'm gonna retake it, is gonna be the next week. I'll have to pay fucking 25$ this time. Gosh if I fail again... I wouldn't be so angry at myself if this was a real test, but it's a f*cking mock test, and I can't take a real one, untill I pass the mock one... CMON REM YOU CAN DO IT! JUST GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER
