Played hackey sack.  A

Played hackey sack. A purifying pursuit if there ever was one. Plus last night had a great chat with my younger sister. I opened up to her this week about joining this site and my desire to change. I have a large family but it is only her who I've been able to connect with about this huge gaming problem I have had. While I'm in my late 20's and she's still in college we are able to connect quite well and it's becoming a huge huge boost for me.

Messed around a little in the garden.

Walked around obssessing about not gaming. Not very good, that last one.

How did you play halo 2

How did you play halo 2 without getting totally absorbed in the game? I can't do that.

Fill what's empty, empty what's full, and scratch where it itches.

what did I do

what did I do today.....

Went food shopping and spent far too much..

Made popcorn on the stove...

Cleaned up kitchen as the saucepan lid slipped and popcorn exploded everywhere....

Talked to BF on skype about my visit to see him, at end of month...my reward for not gaming

Making chicken enchiladas for dinner...my favorite food at the moment..

Sorted out old photos and put into albums...been meaning to do that for years...

So, kept busy, feel I've acheived something today and also progressed as to not playing a game ..

When you have lost everything anyway, you take it back...sanity is a thing to cherish.....

Got up early (7:30 on a Sunday is early for me) and went to the gym first thing. I started this day aggressively. I find that when I'm aggressive early in getting things done my attitude is better throughout the whole day. It's hard for me to throw that switch midday.

I believe for me getting out

I believe for me getting out to do things with other people will be helpful. I already exercise, but would like to do more of that regularly and take a class at the YMCA. I have always loved to read before bedtime and have still done that even after gaming late into the a.m. hours. Instead I think I will begin journaling and reading at a more reasonable hour so I can begin to sleep again...it's been so long. Plus I want to do more with my 16 year old daughter who is now beginning to do more gaming and I feel I have been a poor role model. We can go to movies and to the park when Spring breaks. I also enjoy date nights with my husband...movies, going out to eat and other special events.

HeheWell here's what I did

Hehe
Well here's what I did today to avoid the trap hole from gaming: -Went to class in the morning til 12pm After coming home from school (nearly half alseep, because all we did was watch a reaaaallly long educational video on the History of Martin Luther. Very VERY interesting man for his time :o) -Hanged out with my mom for about an hour. Talked with her about my goals and how things were going and such. Then, well after grabbing a big o' loaf of bread to munch on, -Worked on some 3D modeling in Maya for an animation that I will be producing soon -Came on here for a bit -Researched a bit more about gaming addiction (always willing to learn more) -Watched Lifetime :o which I haven't done in so long...since my addiction -.-'' -Worked on my music sound tracks, shotting down lryics and figuring out which song I should try to record first :) -Talked with my dad for a bit, played with my dog Nino -cute lil bugger he is, a Rat Terrier :) only a year old-
-And noooow-
On here posting this :) 2nd day of being PWI free and looking forward to many more days of it.

Got a lift with my best friend to College

My first class didn't start until 11am, so I spent the morning in the library doing coursework which I hadn't done over the holiday due to relapse.

Caught up with my class-mates

Enjoyed the Sun :D!

Came back from College at 4:00 with my friend again.

Now I'm cooking pasta, going to clean my room, play some violin and later going to the cinema with my Dad, we are both trying to make amends.

Huh, first really productive

Huh, first really productive day I've had since I quit.

Cooked spicy chicken for today and weekend food.

Did a few hours study.

Lunch with book.

Did a few more hours study.

Pushed some weights, relaxed to some music, paid the bills and made some important calls.

Chicken wraps for dinner.

Did some more work, chatted to my girlfriend for half an hour.

Sat down at pc and typed this, considering early night but debating ability to do some work for a couple more hours.

I quit gaming on 16 May 2011. Thank you Online Gamers Anonymous for setting me on the right path to conquering my addiction.

Pounded out another 50 pages

Pounded out another 50 pages of my book after waking up.

Decided to finally send in my college application, after much procrastination.

Mental breakdown ensued, made some phone calls to assist in figuring out the application process, and in the end I got my application filled out, and my transcripts sent off to college \o/.

Checked out jobs locally, applied for a library job, hoping I'll get it.

Made some plans with my girlfriend, going to be spending the next 2 days together before she heads back to university, so she'll be my anti-drug :D.

Cooked a pretty badass stirfry with my mom, the cheap noodles apparently taste incredible.

Managed to game in moderation, decided to give myself 2 hours of game time to unwind, stuck with it. Worked one day, I'm just hoping I can stay off the slippery slope of marathons. Will definitely be returning here daily to remind myself of how I used to be, I'm hoping that with support I'll manage to not only get a handle on my problem, but manage to come to terms with it, and eventually conquer it and still enjoy gaming occasionally.

Many have said moderation doesn't work if you're a previous addict, but I'm hopeful.

Anyways, rambled a bit there. Probably going to be watching a new show tonight, then heading off to bed. Hoping to avoid a late night gaming session for the first night in a couple months :D.

Moderation does work for

Moderation does work for some video game addicts. However, 2 hours would be too much for me. I would end up going past that 2 hour line very very easily. I would suggest that you instead do something like 4 lives or something smaller than 2 hours. For moderation purposes 2 hours isn't really moderating as that seems to me to be a large chunk of time playing the game. Thank you and good luck with your life otherwise.

I cannot moderate. 2 hours

I cannot moderate. 2 hours turns into 8. So I have to take several days off altogether until my steam rating goes down. What I do when I am bored and wish I could play games is go waste time elsewhere. For instance, I just started watching Prison Break for the second time. But when I want to be productive, then I do homework or wash the dishes or go workout. But tonight, I am going to go out and play broomball with some new friends! That's one nice thing about a Minnesota winter xD Broomball FTW!

I suppose, instead of

I suppose, instead of playing video games today, I can read a book. To me, reading books are kind of a waste of time in that they benefit me and not really someone else close to me. I am developing new hobbies now, and I hope that this will help me stay free from video games. I love to come to OLGA too and share when I would usually take time to play video games. I find that playing board games with my partner is also a great way to play games, but without the video element. I also play the powerball lottery, which could be like playing games without the video element to it.

Nobody's mentioned

Nobody's mentioned "breathing" yet. Sometimes all I can do is lay on my bed and practice 'being' by breathing and doing a bit of something like meditation. Might be time for that right now. :/

What I did today. I came

What I did today. I came home from 4pm-12am shift, called up a gaming friend. I played the old streets of rage for fun for about 30 minutes then gave it to another friend. Another friend insisted on playing MVC3, so I watched him play. Then I went out for some fresh air. I went online and searched Gaming addictions on youtube. Felt like an idiot for being at my friend's house so late. Then I told my friends I'll be leaving soon and that they should come with and go home to. THey agreed and told me wait a lil. So I went to olga on my friend's computer and chatted with Pete1, I listened to his ongoing success story about quiting video games and felt inspired.

Came home at 5am got up at 8am to talk to my mom about my day. Slept some more. At ten I went back on olga and read these post. Still had the urge to watch tekken matches so I gave myself 30 minutes....turned into hour and a half.....Played a dancing game on the wii for excersize about 30 minutes while washing clothes.Thought about better gaming management. Now I'm here typing this.

This is my third day on olga and I would admit I'm lacking dedication.

Change is always happening. Question is: Is it Positive or Negative?

Today I woke up and wished 

Today I woke up and wished I had not. I should have gone to university right away but I didn't since I played Star Wars Battlefront II the entire night. I was best on all servers but I did not really care. I don't know why I play this game for hours, but I can't find any good reason to stop it. When I finally went to my uni I programmed in assembly. Afterwards I went home and programmed a little more. Then there was this wish to game. So I gamed 7 hours, while having suicidal thoughts in between as usual. Afterwards I realized that I won't get my Master's degree if I won't stop gaming. It destroys my whole life. So I searched for help and found this website. I got myself an account and typed this description of my day.

Well, I better rest know. I have to stop gaming or I will fail at life.

Welcome to Olga Tommy. 

Welcome to Olga Tommy. Watching lectures, keeps u away from game and also keeps the brain active. I see that you also signed up to Olga and posted... which also is not gaming! Well done. Keep coming and posting. We'd love to hear your story.

The addict in you is

The addict in you is stronger than you are because he has all your intellect with none of the scruples. He doesn't care about anything but gaming, not even you, and he doesn't have to be honest. Pick up a copy of The Addictive Personality at a book store to learn more.

Yesterday I went to Lowes

Yesterday I went to Lowes and got some bird feeder hanging stuff. I hung that up on this pole with hooks which my wife likes to have posted right outside the kitchen window. She noticed and made a special thank you for it.

I also got a solar powered LED spotlight and installed it by the front door. So when she comes home in the dark, whether I remembered to turn on the front porch light or not (pet peeve of wife), now the sensor trips as she walks up, then this huge bright light shines right on the front door so she can see to put in her keys. She appreciated that a lot too.

Now Im going off to cut a couple boards in half and assemble garden frames for raised beds. Just two for a start. I'll add two more later and an entry arch and fence. One step at a time one payday at a time, one years-old honeydoo at a time.

I have a long list of neglected chores and honeydoos. Wife calls it a "working amends" like making penance by working off the debt of so many crimes against her heart while I made gaming more important. Sounds about right.

I was tempted just now to play mahjong on the computer, so off to the garden I'm going instead.

OLGA Home Page: "We advocate and provide a 12-Step Program of recovery. For those who are interested in a formalized meeting approach, we provide both a traditional 12-step program and a modified program for atheists and agnostics." I advocate and use the 12 steps programs, which have helped tens of millions of addicts of all kinds recover.

I LOVE This! thank you for sharing.

My amends are also living amends. I bought a large flat screen tv and we watch history/documentaies (right now a lot of Greek/Roman/Chinese history) and we both love it. We've been taking some classes in Eastern Thought/Philsophers.

I started a vegetable garden last year and we had a full year of tomatoes, peppers and raspberries. I'll be preparing ground for this years garden soon.

We go once a week shopping (which I used to HATE), he has his list, I have mine, we each get a cart and meet in the middle of the store before checkout. This works great. Sometimes, if I'm not feeling up to shopping (and since he loves to shop) I'll go to Starbucks and have a coffee and read a book, and he'll shop, stress-free (meaning I won't bug him to hurry up).

We clean the house together now. He's fairly weak but he wants to help, he does the vacuuming and washes the clothes. I really would rather do them myself, because I'm afraid it's too much for him, but he wants to do that. I do all the rest of the cleaning, the cooking, ironing, mending, bills, and yard work.

He likes to cut and trim bushes, and I like to weed.

We've never had a real partnership in our marriage before. Either I was drinking and he was complaining, or he was drinking and I was complaining, or recently I was gaming and he was being ignored.

This is the first time I think we've had a real marriage.

Last night, my girlfriend

Last night, my girlfriend called and complained of having a very bad day, so I made sure to be downstairs and away from the computer before she'd come in from the garage. She has celiac's disease, which translates to an intolerance of gluten (re: bread, of any kind), lactose, shellfish and a few other common ingredients, so cooking is a must, and I often would leave her to the task as she had so many issues with ingredients. Instead of mindlessly searching the net or gaming, we made dinner together. Afterward we shared a pot of tea, and then took a drive to a local music store where I gave her a guitar lesson and helped her pick out an instrument to learn on.

Today, we're going to a friend's place for a dinner double date. I still find myself a little reluctant to go out so often, as gaming had really trained me to be a homebody. I've seen a lot of people talk about "re-training" their mindset, and I'm hoping such a thing can happen for myself.

OK, I read books all weekend

OK, I read books all weekend during my free time instead of gaming even though I had lots of additional chores I could have done. Reading is actually RELAXING vs gaming which is actually stressful. I thought it was important in my first gamefree weekend to enjoy myself instead of doing endless chores which would just tempt me to log in again. I'm still neglecting some things, but I also took care of a few things I had been neglecting.

One step at a time I guess...

Instead of gaming today, I

Instead of gaming today, I spent time with my children, instead of my SL friends. I was a mother instead of a character in some idealised, over-sexualised world.

It hurts that none of my SL friends have tried to contact me since I left a week ago. No-one wishes to associate with someone who admits to be being to being addicted SL.

So much time wasted with those hedonistic self centred people, I wish to apologise to my family for being absent, and want to tell them I am back in RL and have decided not to hide in a virtual wasteland again.

Welcome to OLGA Puddles! Congradulations on realizing you were addicted and coming here. Don't worry so much about the past, we can't change it and we shouldn't let us hold us back. I think a lot of us here at OLGA have regrets about their gaming past, but at least we did the right thing by stopping and we have a better future to look forward too, which I can see you have realized. I am sure your family loves you and is just happy you are back! You are have already given them much by quitting gaming and joining OLGA. :)

Please join a meeting (7pm mountain time) if you can, and post here if you need to share or need help! We are very welcoming and you are amongst people who have similar experiences to your own.

Sincerely,

Xander

Disappointed cuz could not find game that I like

It's good to have goals and dreams, but while you're waiting for things to change, waiting for promises to come to pass, don't be discontent with where you are. Learn to enjoy the season that you're in--Pastor Joel Osteen
