Cannonfury's Computer Addiction


Recommended Posts

With depression,laziness, being over-weight,feeling tired & lonely..etc My biggest issue is my computer addiction. In 2006 I got a computer...ever since I have been at the mercy of the computer...before that I was addicted to tv. 

 

As the days went by I started spending more & more time online. Every day for about 8 years or so I have spent almost 6-8 hours on the computer...

 

I get anxious about not being online...I get this feeling of "I am missing something" when in reality I am not.

 

I played an online massive multiplayer game for about 5 years..until it closed. 

 

While I want to stop wasting my life online I feel there is so much knowledge I can get/learn from...that I will miss, yet I am not looking at it when I am on. 

I feel so depressed about spending so much time online yet I cant get away from it :/ 

 

I need to try & not be online a lot in the week

 

My main quest is to over-come my computer addiction.

 

1. I will keep a log of computer time each day, using a google chrome internet time tracker app. 

 

 

2. Each day  I will not turn the computer on till at least 7 pm. 

 

 

3. No idle sitting or tv watching which would defeat the purpose of not being online...

 

Life goal 

 

4. Cpap, wear each night

Nice to meet a fellow Adventurer!

 

Sounds like a good challenge. I'm new to all this, but it seems to me that small achievable steps are the way to progress.

 

I'm sorry to hear about your troubles with depression. Hopefully this challenge will help you out with this. Do you mind me asking why you use a CPAP? (I have an academic interest in this sort of thing)

Today was not a good day, was distracted by a few things, things not going the way I wanted which discouraged me..I am too easily discouraged by how others think of me, what others say, what others are doing or not doing(like if they are not as religious...or whatever it is, that I would want them to be..).

Today was a great day. I walked for 30 minutes....

 

 

I did have to go to the dentist & got a filling, wow...I was so numb, now where they put the needle, still hurts like heck!!

 

I ate a grilled chicken sandwich with fries.

 

I feel more motivated, the next 5 weeks will be fantastic! :)

 

I worry too much about what others think of me....A lot of times I think "this person(friends or family) hates me"...which then makes me feel depressed & hate myself. 

 

Today was great because I chatted with my cousin(some about depression), she made me feel much better :)

Today my computer timer says 129 minutes(I paused it for the night & will reset it tomorrow). I used the computer for a few mintues in the morning then did not get on till about 7:20. I did check facebook, NF, & a football forum during the day(on my phone) but that would be about 5 minutes all together on the phone. 

 

top 5 sites

 

1. facebook,83 minutes. My high school class is planning its 10 year reunion, so most of that facebook time is searching for classmates not in our class group & messaging them.

2. rivals.com...college football forums, 16 minutes

3. yahoo,checking email & news..9 minutes

4. 2 pirates of the carribbean online game forums(though the game itself shutdown a few years ago)..8 minutes

5.NF 2 minutes...before pausing timer

 

 

27 sites that are under a minute..

 

 

I did wear the cpap last night. I believe I had a active day but was sick. I woke up with really bad sinus; huring ears, throat & nose. I went to the dr, so hopefully Ill be better soon...being sick makes me over eat...so I did over-eat(the hot food makes me feel good, within the time I am actually eating).

 

No television...I thought about watching wwe Raw which is 3 hours long, but decided not to. 

 

The other day I found a place to watch star wars(I have never seen any of the movies), so I started watching Star wars IV....30 minutes into it & I had enough...I turned it off...not a fan lol
