My main goals right now is work. Primarily. I do want to get into GJJ, and trade school but at the moment I am limited with no vehicle. atm, I am just working, and it's frozen outside, i don't have much else to do aside from chill. Video games though is a way for me to just kick back and enjoy myself, and to honest, i miss it.
I just enjoy gaming, that's why i want to play games again. That's why i feel like that. Not to mention, I work regularly now, and that's just a really good way to wind down for me, and I miss it. I miss the stories and adventures, I miss the characters and classicness of it all.
Hello Toad. First off: No one is forced into ANYTHING here. And there are no "aggressive techniques", only progressive and attentive ones to quit gaming and help gamers who want to quit gaming, quit successfully and begin change in their life. This website is for people who want to quit gaming, or are curious or interested in doing so, so you being here otherwise makes no sense, especially if you're just going to spew garbage on a system built for quitting video games, and saying things like "feel free to hate the community". I don't think you realize that you just walked INTO a community, where there are a whole group of people backing this community and the things within it, nobody here is hating this community aside from you, so you sir are certainly walking into this situation completely unaware and blinded to these facts apparently. Also quitting cigarettes and quitting video games are two different things entirely, one is psychological and the other is an actual addiction to a substance, Nicotine, however I will mention too that you can quit cigarettes cold turkey, many people have, despite what the "doctor" says. And the same thing for video games, actually quitting and deleting all my games was my decision(which I do not regret, but was a choice that really freed me from going backwards), not Cam Adair's so called "aggressive techniques", he simply inspired change in my life. Cam shows compassion and love, and deals with this community as such, he has inspired many more people than myself, and from what I've seen people who have followed Cam's advice are living happier lives(myself included). Nothing here is forced onto anyone, and anyone who wants to play games again or not quit games very well can. Cam does not get everybody's addresses and phone numbers and harass them all day long to keep them from playing video games. He's not hiding on the ceiling in my living room holding a police baton ready to take me out if I walk in the room and start playing some games. He's not investigating where all my money is spent, and how much time I spend wherever I do in my life. I think you get the point. Before making a statement such as yours, step back and ask yourself, "are my observations even true?" because they were all false. You are welcome to leave, or stay, quit gaming or not. That is all up to you sir. Will you choose the red pill, or the blue pill? Will you enter the matrix, or choose to leave it? You decide.
Day 11. The struggle continues. I've been pretty lazy here lately, I haven't been taking my cold showers, or working out, or even reading much at all. I hope to get back into all of that very soon. The lice issue continues, but I'm fixing to treat very soon again. Work was nice, not nearly as busy and I'm fixing to get into a motion of things I think. I'm not too sure what to type aside from those things. As for cravings, not many, well i guess not right now, last night I did watch some PSVR gameplay but I didn't have an urge really to play anything(if I did it wasn't very strong), although it looked fun. I failed at no fap recently, which I'm ashamed and regretful of, I hate waking up from sexual dreams..ug. Recently I've been more tempted to watch longboarding/skateboarding videos and various YT videos, and just surfing the web brainlessly. I don't enjoy doing this, it's nice for a little while to watch some Netflix or something to just chill but I really have to get outta that habit of just sitting there for 2-3 hours on the computer. I've really been wanting to go longboarding but it's bitter cold outside(which wouldn't bother me much) as well as about a foot+ of snow. Why!? That's one thing I've really been wanting to do as It's sort of a hobby of mine, so I'm kinda disappointed about that. Anyways, i need to get off of here. Bye! End of #11 Journal Entry.
Thank you for the wishes. Yea, I've been a pretty common head shaver myself but most of the time I have someone else shave it, as I don't have my own shaver. I put olive oil on my head last night, and wrapped it with saran wrap, I think most of them are dead, but I will continue to treat for about a week or so.
Day 10. Sorry I didn't get to type day 9 journal unfortunately. I spent most of the day after work trying to deal with the lice issue. I'm tormented by these things, seriously, like tormented. And on top of it I'm trying to work a job(worried I might spread that at my workplace is even scarier), and the job is tough, I really have to learn how to go fast and act on my own. I'm trying to hold it together over here as much as possible. I'm really having a tough time over here, even just trying to think clearly and not be stressed out is difficult. I don't really know what to do, not only all that stuff but I'm having a tough time with the place I am currently staying at, away from where I've been living for so long in this new place, trying to work a job and then contracting one of the most annoying scary things(aside from cancer, and STDs and other stuff i guess lol), I need to pay rent so I can't really just quit my job as I'm broke. Things have been taking a severe turn for the worst after the job started, I feel like God is telling me to basically hold on and things will be better, I'll be stronger after this and I just have to keep faith and keep moving forward. To others this may not seem like such a big deal, but lice are really a big issue because It's not easy to get rid of them. I've spent about 30 dollars(emphasis on broke) now in total on these things trying to kill them and I still have them. Ug. Maybe this is all just complaining and I shouldn't be typing about this anyways. As for playing video games, you can imagine it has been difficult since my circumstances have caused me immense stress and lack of sleep. I've been tempted a lot lately, I even had dreams about playing video games, but I'm holding on as hard as I can(my Steam account is cancelled anyways, it took me being quite blunt and rather rude too to even get them to shut it down, which I am not proud of), I know going back to playing video games seems fun and like a stress reliever to take my mind off of my present issues, but they will do nothing but that, help me to take my mind off the issue, they won't fix my problem and playing games certainly won't get my mind straight. If anybody prays here, please do because I am having a very troubling time right now. I'm done.
