Goodbye games

Hey everyone,

My name is Connor. I'm a 23 year old guy about to graduate trying to finally stop gaming and actually do something with all of the free time that I have. My gaming problem really started five years ago during freshman year of college, with League of Legends. That accursed game. It was so fun, and I've kept coming back to it. It is hard to leave something that I have spent so much time doing, like learning all the champs and items and how to play every role. I've wasted 95 days of my life playing that game over the last 5 years, and it is time to end it. I of course have other games I palyed off and on, but having unistalled them all a month or so ago I feel it is easier to let them all go. 

I will be graduating with a degree in geology/geophysics, but my true interest is in paleontology and dinosaurs. I also love drawing, nature, camping, hiking, etc. If anyone ever wants to talk to me about those things, feel free! I would love to get to talk about those kind of things with people. 

I want to finally quit video games because I need to be doing other things with my time. I know that I will say that I only play them because I have so much free time and I don't know what else I would do, but there are so many other things to do that I would be lying to myself if I started playing again. This is probably the 6th-10th time I've tried to quit, but often only manage to go a week or two before reinstalling. I know that I am not as bad as some people, but knowing that I have this beast that I can't overcome makes me want to try even harder. So I thought I would try this place to see if it will help. I have high hopes for the future though, and I think I can stick through the urges. 

Thanks for letting me share my thoughts.

- Connor
