My name is Daniel and I have a problem. Tomorrow morning I will start my first day of detox. I have tried the Detox before, only lasted about 60 days.

Things to do:

Get rid of gaming accounts
Set up K-9 and StayFocusd
Get a workout routine
Get a morning routine, for waking up.and and night routine for sleeping
Consider the option of taking meds

Having a journal will help out in all of those areas, as you can sit and reflect on your words and writing. More often than not it will give you the answers you are looking for.

Good to have you with us!

60 days is great indeed, a sure indicator you can do 90 instead. What's a K-9 btw?

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. 
K-9 is a free internet filter and parental control software. It has several options lacking on Stayfocusd. When I stop gaming I procastinate a lot on my laptop. That´s why I need the internet filters.
Once I set them both, they are very effective tools.

Welcome back Daniel! I also procrastinate a lot, I use SF + Cold Turkey, I heard good things about K9 but I'm not sure yet, can you please report back with your experience using it?

You can do this man!

Day #0

Total disaster, felt anxious all day. I binged on a half season of a show and gamed about 1 hour. Woke up later than usual, breakfast was terrible, skipped workout and during the evening I had a beer and a smoke. 
I remember Something similar happened during my first detox, as in failing to start the first days. I feel a bit afraid and anxious.

Just keep posting on your journal every day, even if you relapse. The very act of posting is a signal of your intention to change yourself. And it's a victory of sorts!

Starting is half the battle. Once the momentum kicks in, it'll become easier. Cheers.

Things are still bad, but I have hope after a good night sleep.

Day #1

Setting up the web filters.

I feel like my mind is desperately craving for hyper stimulating activities. 
My plan is to keep my eating habits steady, get a workout and get out of the house, probably the public library.

The diet was decent, skipped the workout an failed to go to the library, however I went to a bar to finish reading a book.
Still free of gaming so it was a good day.

Ok! It´s finally time to sleep! The nuclear option came handy. How about a nuclear option for 2160 hours?

The library is a great place to get out and pass the time. It's quiet and air-conditioned and usually have comfortable plush seats. 😉
