I don't count it up often. 

I don't count it up often. But today is 140 days for me. That's exactly 20 weeks game-free. And it's better, I believe, and I'm getting better, if slowly. Hugs to everybody and congrats to everyone on our progress (me blowing a kazoo loudly).

I am a recovering computer game and gambling addict. My recovery birthday: On May 6, 2012 I quit games and began working a program of recovery through OLGA No computer games or slot games for me since December 12, 2012. No solitaire games with real cards since June 2013.

 I am on the eve of a big

I am on the eve of a big meeting in the morning. I"m feeling a bit nevous coz I am going to have to tell people stuff they might not be happy to hear.

It will prolly challenge my ego if they don't respond the way I hope they do.

I want to stay confident and self assured.

At least, I want to look that way.

I'll report how it goes.

Have a great game free day.

Ps: grats on your game free days Dan. Wishing you lots more :-)

Kate and fellow

Kate and fellow counters,

I'm still counting...

42 days w/o my SL game. 6 weeks in week counting. hehe.

I had to take a break for a couple of days from swimming. My Dad's second wife came in for a long weekend visit, which was super. My Dad died in 2010. My spouse went into the hospital for surgery today-- hopefully routine as they claim.

I don't feel any compeling urge to game; I know the result would be the same- create a list of stuff to do in the game which ultimately creates more lists and endless projects combined with social visits with other Avatars. I just don't need all that time working with the pixels.

I hope all are doing well without their game of choice !

My new game of choice: 

My new game of choice: RL. The most difficult, complex, confusing, random, interesting and (I hope) ultimately rewarding game of all. But you can't reboot and get a new avatar. All you can do is throw away all your accumulated stuff, and start working from the lowest level on getting new stuff. I'm at a really, really low level. Starting over at an advanced age. And the admins are after me for all my rule violations in the past. Hard to say what will happen. But I'm trying to keep playing.

@dan: I can really relate to

@dan: I can really relate to what you say on rebooting :-).

I had a good first week after the holidays.

When I come home I notice that I must try to keep busy. Once I sit down and "cool down" is when apathy starts to kick in, and that is when dangerous thoughts can pop up. That is why I try to plan things after work when I am tired: sports, meeting people, doing some handy work. What is really important (and basic) is to sleep well, go to bed at a reasonable time.

Hey Steele, Dan, good to hear from you. Good to hear from you too Zoe.

Weekend is here.

Son has a friend over and hubby is working all weekend. It will be another quiet one. Gonna go find some stuff to do.

I hear you Steele about keeping busy.

Being active gives the days more meaning. :-)

Someone posted yesterday

Someone posted yesterday about to do lists. I made a few myself. I achieved most of what I wanted to do.

Emotionally, I did pretty good too. I had 2 long days, husband was working the weekend, and lot's of thoughts crept in, and I was able to release them without getting overwhelmed. And that allowed me to go on with a pretty productive day.

Goal for today?

Goal for today? Mindfulness.

I want to keep my mind in the moment and focussed on the tasks at hand. I've a lot of tools to help me do this.

By being able to focus and be productive, it's making for better days for me :=)

I love mindfulness, Kate,

I love mindfulness, Kate, thank you for reminding me.

You said something else, another thread perhaps, about living one day at a time. We hear that phrase so often sometimes, I forget what the meaning is, but when I do that during my day (release the past, not live in the future) my day is so much better.

Of course we have to live a bit in the past and future to make plans, etc. But living exclusively in the past and future have done more to harm my life than anything.

This week has been a bad week for me. Nothing emotional or something to be ashamed of. I fell and hurt my back last week, but it got better, then I do a few stupid things and hurt back again. And because it's still been hot here, i had fan on me all night then got sick.

Sorry to hear you're under the weather, Pat. Hope you're 100% asap!

One day at a time is all I can handle! Ooof. I'm limping along today, but, by golly, I'm up and at it. I'm grateful.

I knew that Jack would be at

I knew that Jack would be at a board meeting tonight. Just me and the kitties with a couple of chores.

Temptation... go into the game, just a couple of errands [still have a couple of Avatars a couple of keystrokes away.] But you know... that would just put me on another count up starting tomorrow at number 1. Jeez that would be sooooo weak, so whimpy, so gutless.

I'm going to put a notice on my blog... Asking for a sponsor. I don't think I deserve one and only a very strong person would take me on. But, heck I'll put out the note, someone might see the challenge.

I had so much stuff to do today. Lots of lists. Since I wasn't distracted, I got a lot done. :=)

I got yelled at by a parent and didn't have an emotional mess in my mind of self blame for something that wasn't my fault. And that was good.

Actually, I didn't do anything.. I try to avoid getting yelled at.

I was just relaying some information.

My son doesn't tie his shoes well either and he's in 5th grade. I blame velcro. lol

Already thursday again. The week is flying past. I have been busy at work doing the stuff I am supposed to do. A couple of nights I did some sports.

I really need to work some more during the late hours, but find that I hardly have any time left. I am not worrying too much about that, although it is a problem. Just trying to live life in a good way. Not one game day in the last three weeks. Nice. Being busy is tiring, but also nice.

Aww well, life is change.

Aww well, life is change. This generation obviously has no need for tying shoes, cursive writing, and probably many other details we considered rites of passage. It's just that change is happening faster and faster! Woah!!!

Anyway, I'll have been FREE of games for 8 months as of this coming Sunday, and though my life isn't ideal, it's sooooooooooo much better than it was this time last year in every way. I thank God, my 12 Step groups and every single person here at OLGA. Each of you mean so much to me.

Dan, Thanks for the "detail work". I really appreciate you following behind me! This is one super disadvantage of having a "Concrete Random" learning style. Especially with computers! I found this out first hand in my Game Life. I was such a mess. hehe.

htlm vs. htm --> I'm such a doltz At any rate the value of the better bow is there for anyone who gives it a go. Your shoes never become untied but are quickly released with a tug of the tail of the lace.

So its 7 weeks today - And everyone on this thread reports bigger numbers... I'll never catch up! She grins and laughs to herself.

Congrats on your game free

Congrats on your game free days Zoe and Getting. :=)

I woke up this morning in kind of a grouchy mood. I was a little annoyed at my spouse and wanting to stew in it. I did for a bit, but then let the bad feelings float down the river. I pulled myself onto the river bank and just watched it float away...

Later I told my husband I was in a grouchy mood and shared with him about my feelings of apprehension about an event happening in 2 weeks. It ended up being a very loving conversation. Much better than if I'd let my negativity grow, and had ended up sniping him into his office to hide away from me.

Hugs to everyone.

Today I am practicing

Today I am practicing restraint. :-) Some days ago, somewhere, I stuck my head out and I was voicing my critical opinion. I expected people would disagree, that can happen and happens. My ego is thinking about a response, but it would just degenerate into a discussion. I will try to sit back and just let it go. (Actually, that is not entirely true, because I am writing this.)

Not everybody is like me, I will not change "them", I can only try to change myself. I said what I wanted to say, now it is up to others to do something with it, or not.

Also good to try to remember that I do not own "the truth". Although sometimes I do think I do :-). A very human flaw, isn't it.

Had a really nice weekend. I went on a trip, visited a far away city and met friends. Today my plan is to go to bed early (a very short night due to traveling) and continue with the good mood and positive attitude that I think that I am in lately.

About 4 weeks without a drip of gaming. Zoe, I will never catch up on you.

Steele,

Without becoming a digital sleuth I think I remember you sharing some real pain with us in the past. The count up isn't [for me at least] about the scorecard. It's more keeping up with some folks we sort of know in a personal way [as best we can via our keyboards]

You "sound" good to me!

Today a "normal" day. Busy day.

Cool note to make: after work I had a sort-of date with a girl I saw in a bar the other day. We talked very briefly and exchanged phone numbers (increadible how fast that went). Today we met up somewhere near her home, talked drinking a cup of coffee. Chatting about this and that, trying to find subjects for conversation. :-) The down side was that I think there is not much we have in common. Not sure how to handle this situation, but I will learn as we go along. And... it is always good to practice social skills, so to speak.

Feeling good about not gaming. :-)

I guess I'm at 1004. I've been very busy lately, haven't had time to post or anything. I even have a couple write-ups (one for my blog here) I've not had time to edit. Things are going very well, but I'm so busy I sometimes can't find time to breath.

I got a signficant promotion at work which has just added to my load (I feel like I'm now doing both jobs) and I'm in the middle of my research methods work which is requireing parts of my brain to work which are more than a little rusty. Each day I'm trying to just make it through work, spend a couple hours with my kids, and make some progress on the house remodeling (if that'll ever be done). Things are good though, been smiling a lot.

Glad this monday is over. I did not sleep too well, which translates into low motivation during work and, more importantly, during my free time after work.

But I did the important chores and hung out watching the news, checked some stuff on a grand purchase that I am planning and posting some stuff in the social media. Now better get to bed early, and read a little.. and fall asleep gently.. :-) (Looking forward to that last part!)

Kate, sleep I've found to be one of the single biggest determinants of how 'good' I will feel for any given day. Unfortunately, activities such as late night gaming directly cut into sleep. Particularly with school I stay up too late and don't get as much sleep as I should, but I still get 6-7 hours which is far more than I did while gaming (4-5 hours).

Thanks for the note Joe.. Recently I've been waking up in the middle of the night.. I am not sure why, but it's irritating. I can remember getting up and gaming at 3 a.m. and being bleary eyed during the week.. So glad that is not my reality anymore.

If your anything like me, barring illness, that usually happens when you have a lot on your mind. I know when I have a lot of anxiety about something at work or am excited about an upcoming event (or both) I tend to wake up a lot.

There's a wiki page on sleep

There's a wiki page on sleep deprivation that explains a lot of the insanity in my life when I was gaming. The article is quite an eye-opener. I'm feeling very inspired to get the sleep I need! Look at this list of possible effects:

"Generally, sleep deprivation may result in:

aching musclesconfusion, memory lapses or lossdepressionhallucinationshand tremorsheadachesmalaisesensitivity to coldperiorbital puffiness, commonly known as "bags under eyes" or eye bagsincreased blood pressureincreased stress hormone levelsincreased risk of diabetesincreased risk of fibromyalgiairritabilitynystagmus (rapid involuntary rhythmic eye movement)obesitytemper tantrums in childrensymptoms similar to: Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)Psychosis"

I totally hear you Steele. I've had a few restless nights recently myself. Lack of sleep makes everything feel more difficult, and good sleep helps me deal with life so much better.

Sweet dreams :-)

Kate, sleep I've found to be one of the single biggest determinants of how 'good' I will feel for any given day. Unfortunately, activities such as late night gaming directly cut into sleep. Particularly with school I stay up too late and don't get as much sleep as I should, but I still get 6-7 hours which is far more than I did while gaming (4-5 hours).

What you feed grows, and what you starve withers away.
