quitting again

leave a comment »

Oy.  I shouldn’t have started playing computer games again.  Even though I didn’t play much these past few weeks, thinking about playing was a bit of a distraction during my studies.  Quitting that ish.  Last week, final exam, gotta study hard.

It would be best if I quit completely—that is, no gaming even over break.  There are other things that aren’t as addictive as gaming I can occupy myself with.  This break, when I’m not with friends, I think I’ll be watching lots of movies and getting through a book.  It’s been a while since I’ve read a book.

That’s it.  I’ve done some reading on video game addiction and now I’m going to quit cold turkey.  It sounds funny, but it really isn’t—especially not with the demanding life I am living.  Virtual conquests are satisfying.  I like the way I feel when I win.  It’s not unlike a drug high at all.  Also, one game is certainly never enough.  An alcoholic can’t drink just one beer.  I can’t play just one game.  It’s not a great feeling after some six hours of playing when you stop, look around, and see what has become of your day.

Games are an escape.  They can help people de-stress—take their mind off things.  However, like alcohol and drugs, they are not an answer.  My time would be better spent meditating.  My mind-vice is strong in meditation, lulz.

P.S.  Jack Donaghy (from 30 Rock) is my hero.  He invented the mind-vice.

“I believe that when you have a problem, you talk it over with your priest, or your tailor, or the mute elevator porter at your men’s club. Then you take that problem and you crush it with your mind vice.  But for lesser beings, like curly haired men and people who need glasses, therapy can help.”

“Put your mental burden in my mind-vice and I will crush it.”

“Oh no… Crush it!  Oh god… here comes my childhood.” *high-pitched weeping*
