    When I woke up i feel like i have less and less eneegy due to me bot able to sleep before 2 am.
    I don't know what else to do over night time.
    everything runs fine except for the sleep.
    Last night it was even more difficult. 
    I described it one time when studying for an exam for 2 weeks...
     i was like Each day the nofap bites more and more energy.

    How can i get a better paradigm?
    i am on my day 3  on nofap and day 5 on Gaming
    i couldnt sleep very well last night. I slept the day before for about 10hours.
    AnywaY, the newest podcast by Jason and Cam abozut commitment was a real eyeopener I always was not sure what they meant with the sio called flow state..
    Now i can say that it is something you really indulge in like for me it was gaming and fapping.
    since then i am trying to mnot worry about habbits that much rather than focus on a few things, activities that i try to create flow.
    For example i try to get my daily Russian on Duolingo done. Sometimes i go for a walk to the town.
    For today i ate at Ikea  ibroke the diet to keep 2200 calories a day..  I would recommend wikifit for A good app to loose weight.
    One other thimgs that i like on my experiece so far is that iamm getting a little more happier than i used to be!!!

    Day 1
     i finished high school a ciouple days ago. therewas a big party  afterwards and there i met a very attractive girl after the night i was left exhausted after dancing a lot.
    I relapsed after trying to rest i read and i listened to musicvbut i usually listening to electronic genre so it pushed me up. after wards i ate about 1000calories and i felt like shit.( Iam a diabetic). then ithough well i failed on my nosugar streak why not on nofap or nogame? The night was the shit 5 hours of gaming and a porn....
    I couldnt get up the next day I gamed again i was feeling how the grip to gaming got tighter after thr night session.
    I think to have so many goals dragged me down somehow.
    The problem is also thatthere is always a way to get gaming again i used appdetox to regulate the usage of Google Play store ieven gve my appdetox to my brother to type a code that i dont know to make the assess more difficult.I simplx´y deleted appdetox it said that i should change the admin or something like that ion my phone  isimply clicked a few buttons and i could get to play sore immediately...
    I guess i dont know how to break auto plot mode and i seem not to be very comitted to stop gaming.

    after some hours of gaming i am in again i dont liike the feeling of being unproductive...
    Day 1 Nofap  there must be a reason why i am not progressing further then 3 to 4 days in a row!
    I had a weird dream about gaming any tower defense crap it was so real...
     the rest of the day was kinda on autopilot
    what i learned from the relapse is avoid using your device after a gaming dream or anything else.It definitely helped eating a little more fruits today instead of chicken nuggets at lunch ugh.
    See ya!

    I am on Day 2 again after a relapse in Porn and Gaming the last coiuple of days 
    one thing that i learned from the relapse is that eating ice cream or crisps made me weak and i gave in gaming.
    Today i am home alone which is kinda difficult to handle i did some duolingo to improve my Italian skills.
    The last couple of days i am not dreaming well i dont know why.
    A couple weeks ago slept from 2 am (watching a movie) until 3 pm..
    Even if i am more aware of time consuming gadgets and the effect junk food has on me  iam still kinda stuck in the house not knowing how to fulfill the need for the social area.
    To be honest i never gamed with social communication around it so i dont knoew whethetr thats a thing or not.

    Day 2 
    After some time I am checking in now I am willing to change something in my life!
    I want to delete my play storegoogle account that is connected to it but I paid some euros for a guitar app and  several body building apps which might be useful for me in the future it would be difficult to give up that account.
    My question is can you somehow transfer apps to another one?
    Thanks you!!!

    [DE] Mein Problem
    Hi Leute 
    Ich spiele schon seit mehreren Jahren mittlerweile es War nie schlimm weil ich noch gut in der Schule gewesen bin.
    Jetzt stehe ich vor dem Abitur und merke dass ich mit den Jahren eine Sucht entwickelt habe.
    Meist haben meine Eltern nichts gemerkt sodass sich meine Sucht weiterentwickeln konnte.Kritisch wurde es bei dem Vorabi zur und als ich mal für eine Arbeit gar nicht gelernt und noch die Nacht zur Arbeit hin durchgezockt habe..
    Meine Eltern haben gesagt dass ich aufhören soll..Ich habe etliche Male die spiele von meinem Handy gelöscht und man hat mir etliche Male das Handy weggenommen.
    Zur Zeit habe  Clicker heroes diesen Zeitfresser gelöscht und verspüre den Drang wieder zu spielen.
    Ich habe seitdem Anfang der Oberstufe  nur noch nach diesen Alles oder Nichts Prinzip gearbeitet und mich immer vor den unangenehmen Sachen durch zocken ausgeglichen.

    Oh my !
    I am on my first day of nogames and I am stressed and got irritated quickly.
    I went through one day a couple days ago and I couldn'slept for a night.
    It was very tough. yesterday I relapsed and I was like  I have gone through the night of not gaming and now I have to start it all over. Going through the next night where I feel that II undid my progress of one day.
    What I amtrying to say is  I have pushed through one day and I cannot imagine that I gamed for 20 minutes 20 mj utes of high concentrated pleasure induced by dopamine is worth a whole day of progression.
    So I woke a uptoday  thinuking about gaming I remembered my Realisation from yesterday  I went for a walk after lunch to be in aanother environment.
    I realized that I need to progress in the way of how to deal with stress to control my mood fluctuations throughout the day.

    Day 0
    So I wrote down some stuff that I loss when I quit gaming:
    I basically answered some questions
    What do I fear quitting games?
    Extremely lack of motivation feelings of regret looking back at the wasted time.
    Fear that I will never be gaming again. It feels like I lost everything meaningful to me.
    How I feel right now:
    How to deal with stress instead of watching porn or gaming.
    I have been watching Cams video about recovery and abstinence last night.
    I am not sure if I want to quit I wa always procrastinating that decision because it is a real tough one.
     what do I wanna gain from quitting?
    I want to live literally a more meaningful life going out even when the sum isnot shining.
    I wanna approach new people to put me out there.
    Thanks for reading till the end!

    DAY 1
    Hey Folks!!
    I have been watchinsome of cam's videos regarding WHT you should quit and I understand even better what he means when he is saying that gaming is deceiving your brain.
    That video about willpower and the mindset to develop is helping a lot.
    So today I faced real life and was screwed due to procrastinating time of math studies..  I started kinda late like in the afternoon and since I am going I can tell it is not that difficult ones you are going.
    I will record a video about my journal since there is so much experiences to cover.
    I'll continue to journal the next weeks. I'll continue Djing trying to figure some mixes out..probably I'll make a record someday.
    Thank you Cam for all the efford you have put into your videos
    I'll really appreciate you doing more videos that include  an overview and a comparison of different mindsets.

    Day 0.5
    I have quit today after noticing that the effect of video games tightened it's grip on me.
    I decided to quit a couple of days earlier because I noticing that I was gaming more frequent than one night in a row..
    I want to be more social and active and challenge myself throughout the day.
    Right now I am feeling so much more relaxed not concerning where I could be in the game if I would not quit.
    I am studying for my Abitur in fact for the last exams which are math english and History.
    I have made a list of three things that I want to accomplish two of them are finished.
    However, I notice some urges to install that game again since I have a little break.
    Usually, I would game through the night and would kin da try to wast time throughout the day after.
    So many times I gamed to cover emotions and sometimes it was to wast time
    .  I recognized to build up a tolerance as the game wasn't interesting amymore even the daily let's plays that I was watching every night become stale.
    The first time I quit I wasn't sure whether to continue but the tolerance that you build up made me realize that you go down the slope if you continue even if you thing you can control gaming.
    So, I watched the tedx video by george Wilson who was mentioning that delta fos b a chemical was accumulated in the brain.

    Das Problem ist dass ich manchmal Spiele aber anderen Tagen mache ihr Push ups oder lerne ein bisschen italienisch.
    Aber dann wenn ich mich belohnen möchte dann spiele ich.
    Das Ding ist ich spiele alle 2 Tage  durch die Nacht und bin dann so müde sodass ich dann nichts mehr anderes machen kann.

    Tag 0.5
    Ich  habe absolut kein Bock auf diese Quittung games Nummer!
    Das bringt mir doch sowieso nichts Einen halben Tag bin ich schon von den Spielen weg und Ich fühle mich so ultra beschissen und gelangweilt wenn ich Schule machen muss mache ich es nur mit Widerwillen  ich bin einfach total geladen und müde.
    Ich habe es mit Meditation probiert nur habe ich keine Mindfulness oder so was.
    Ich bin einfach nur sauer dass mein Körper sich so gegen mein Vorhaben wehrt...
    Ich will mit dem Spielen aufhören aber ich fühle mich so als ob ich nur noch länger spielen muss damit Ich was zu tun habe.
    Ich werde den Text so gut wie möglich nun in englischer Sprache verfassen.
