bboeger added a topic in Start Here + IntroductionsHi all!How are you?
I'm Bruno, a gamer since I was 10 years old. Games served me as a good escape to deal with abusive parents and alot of bullying in high school. I never stopped until yesterday, on my 31 years old (21 years playing game. The math is scary as hell when you count the hours).
Why I'm quitting? Because I want to do more with my life. I want to build a business. I want to go out more and not be afraid to meet new people. I want to do charity work. I want to live to te fullest and not escaping through the computer screen.
I deleted my steam account. Gave my Blizzard account to a friend. Sold my video game. I've been focusing on learning UX Design, Programming and doing a coach to start a business.
This is my first day without video games - the closest I am playing is Duolingo, to learn German.
I'm abnoxious as hell. Can´t sleep. Looks like that's the shit sandwitch I'll have to eat for a while. Hope it's worth the effort and gives the change I am hoping for.
Cheers to all suffering the same struggle!
