You can’t limit your time; you can’t use it as a reward. I’m not talking about making this decision like you make other decisions, which you aren’t really serious about. If not, you will end up playing them again and again, wasting your days playing some stupid video game, justifying it in a thousand different ways.

It took a strong will but I was eventually able to break the habit, and as time went on, it became easier and easier. Which brings me to the first and absolute most important puzzle to quitting video games: You must have a firm commitment to not play them. You must make the decision not to touch them at all ever again.

This was right around the time that I decided to make a few last ditch efforts to save my relationship (which didn’t work).At least that’s what I told myself at the time, but the main reason (looking back) that I moved was in order .I had just moved into a new house with two roommates who I didn’t know very well.Growing up I played video games as much as I possibly could.It got to the point where I would refuse to even do any chores around the house because that would take time away from playing video games.
